    My fucking XM radio has been broken and I just caught wind of the move today. A couple of things worth considering regarding this move....first, it moves R&F to a non-XM exclusive channel (available on both Sirius & XM radios). This makes them available to a bigger market. Secondly, the move to Raw Dog really costs SXM nothing...R&F keep doing their show and O&A start airing repeats. Ron & Fez won't be competing with the "live" version of either O&A or Stern...they'll be an East Coast afternoon show. It will pit them against Covino & Rich (who broadcast on Indie if memory serves). C&R are actually a pretty big show for SiriusXM...and they've LONG publicly stated that they want to be on Howard's channels (they used to work with Howard's staff at K-Rock). It would surprise me if SiriusXM allowed R&F to compete head-to-head with C&R even though they are a slightly different demographic.

    So bottom line...nobody really knows shit. Still interesting though. I suspect Tim Sabien is behind all of the moves. Has this even been discussed in the Howard forum? I haven't visited much in the past couple of months and don't want to risk throwing shit up that has already been discussed.

    Also from the sound of it they will essentially be in charge of raw dog sirius xm comedy hits 99 so they basically have their own channel now.

    Bright side: The Fez Cries Half-Hour will be awesome. Just have someone give him random shit to read and tell him how fat he is. Watch in amazement as Fez gets through the first chapter of Wuthering Heights before losing it!

    Completely agree. I think Tim's plan on a large scale is to get Stern listeners into more talk shows, get them into shows that were only on the XM or Best of Packages, and this allows for that.

    My prediction is that there will be a new channel or maybe 101 will become a channel where replays of O&A/Stern/etc are played and you don't need a premium package to listen. Wouldn't be surprised if it's Stern, O&A and Ellis replays on the one channel.

    Well turns out the show on Rawdog is the same old shit as the old one. What happened to that boring speech that Ron gave?

    Since they've left the O and A channel, I haven't listened to one Ron and Fez show. I don't even know what time their show starts.

    Uncensored. Now o&a replay all day. Much better than that unlistenable POS r&f show.

    The Raw Dog channel needs to be updated on the online player. You can't fucking fast-forward/rewind without getting the stupid "You're only allowed 2 per hour" horseshit like on the music channels.

    Ron and Fez is completely and utterly unlistenable.
