    "I'm going to devote my life [his emphasis] to making satellite radio and Sirius satellite radio the most awesome, most incredible thing you'll ever hear." at the 14:03 mark.
    "I'll put my money where my mouth is." 15:01

    I can't listen to anymore of this. I'm a ffffffucking idiot for believing this piece of shit. Damn it.

    Thus began the long con:

    Only enough breaks to use the restroom, a couple of songs played during the breaks

    Live programming when the show wasn't on

    Three channels of real radio guys given the freedom to do their own thing

    Innovations, ISDN lines for impromptu shows, eh eh eh...........

    All ending when the $320 million in bonuses was delivered shortly after taking to the air in 2006.

    Howard made it clear 50 times that it was an amazing secret because of the stock and possibility of insider trading.
    Why would that be on his mind during the announcement? :facepalm:

    By the end of the show (an hour later) he played a news clip that said that the contract including stock incentives and revenue sharing......:jj:....secret got out quickly

    The day he announced this I was travelling to Burlington Vermont. I was in upstate NY, going from a Buffalo station, to a Syracuse station, and then finally had to stop and just listen because the signal was dying. Rivited to the radio, because this sounded like the greatest thing ever.

    Turned out to be the greatest radio con job ever.

    "Robin, all our listeners will move with us to Sirius because I can guarentee that people will have no problem paying for something that they used to get for free for 25 years."
