    Jay said today that after next week they're gone from H101 on Fridays. He said it wasn't his decision and he's known about it for a couple of months. Congratulations Wiggy, you just got rid of the only show worth listening to on the channels, including yours.

    That sucks. Jay's show was the best thing on 101. They should just shut the channel down now.

    They should shut both channels down. Jay's show was the only thing worth listening to and it's much better than Howard's.

    I agree totally. Other than the west coast feed and stern shuffle there is nothing left on 101 and no point in it's existence.

    Let's face it. Whether you enjoy Howard as an entertainer or not he's a scumbag. He's a horrible business partner, he lies, and doesn't care that the "Revolution" he came over for is nothing but a pile of dogcrap. No matter how many millions he deserves there's no reason he shouldn't dip in to his salary to create a budget for other quality shows on HIS channels. Sirius only benefited by getting a quick stock blip from his announcement he was going to Sirius which allowed Sirius executives to cash out prior to its collapse to .05 with Howard under contract.

    And Howard doesn't love Beth he loves her beauty and the ability it gives him to rub his success in the face of others.

    It was a tough decision Robin. There's just no money and I'm so busy.

    Funny they can find money in the budget for the rest of the stellar lineup nobody listens to - Abe Kanan, Dr. Fisch, Dealing Straight, etc. If those were axed no one would care or even notice.

    I said this in another thread, but this is just ridiculous. Sirius has almost no programming at this point, and the amount they've cancelled since around 06 is just ridiculous (and caused me to cancel my two monthly subs and now only have the lifetime which I'm stuck with). Greenstein should be fired for letting this go down while there is still money for Nordic Rox, for God's sake.

    Yes...
    But SiriusXM have a contact with Howard there he promise content for 2 channels. Its the retarded contract that didn't have any quality clause, or how Howard should use the programming budget that Sirius pays him.

    Its Wiggy that keep 99% of the money for his show with almost 40 employees!!! And that is for a 3.5 hours show/3 days a week. The rest of the staff work Sirius full time schedule. So we have 40 people doing "nothing" more then 50% of the week.

    Instead of programming Howard wants 4 full time employees for censoring stuff. "The tape team"

    Howard's old Sirius contract that states that he shall provide 2 channels of content + that Sirius provide a (huge) show budget (showbudget is on page 6)

    Howard wonders why we hate. Sirius and Howards channels are on a downslide. They keep taking anything I fucking listen to away. I'm edging toward the podcast willie. Sirius is convenient compared to the podcast, but they totally fucked up what could have been a great product.
