    On today's a caller complained that shows on 101 like Fred's Drops aren't available on demand.
    It's all connected to Howard's greediness. Howard calls all the shots on what's allowed and what's not allowed on demand. If he says anything to the contrary he's a liar. Howard is a control freak. Do you really think he doesn't have a say on anything done on the channels.

    Howard's problem is that he still thinks like a 1990-something when that shit was tolerable an everyone else & their brother wasn't posting podcasts of the days show as soon as it was over.

    leave it to grandpa Howard to try to make money by charging for his reruns when every alternative is free and widely available.

    He can either make stuff easily available or we'll have to find other ways to get it (and we have).

    Understand how Howard thinks. Its about him. According to Howard, no one cares about any other show. "They just want replays".

    Howard would never share spotlight with anyone.

    (I guess that Sirius didn't license the other shows to be "on demand". Howard is always looking for a shekel)

    Howard's attitude is more on demand stuff will add subscribers for Sirius. They didn't pay him his bonus so he will do nothing to promote or help Sirius outside of what he is contractually obligated to do.

    I don't think stern even likes that his show is available for download. He never mentions it. He wants his sheep to stay in the old fashioned radio delivery method

    It goes back to the same answer. Howard will not do anything to get more listeners.
