    Just renewed my xm because my card had expired and I called in to feel them out. And I took the time to tell them I didn't want to pay for stern on Sirius but I still wanted the NFL package. Then I told her that I visit a forum daily were thousands of mostly former stern listeners hang out. Then I said to her that I didn't know why Sirius paid stern so much considering all the drops. And then she says probably forgetting she's being taped, yeah I don't know what they are doing over there (at stern) but you're right! Then I think she realized in panic what she said and quickly changed the conversation.

    My new car free subscription runs out tomorrow. Will not pay even at a discount. I'm saving my money for the Stuttering John Funny Tour when it comes to Philly.

    I don't think a low paid call center employee is going to know anything about Howard's ratings.

    Mine ran out a few months ago, didn't listen to one second of "the show". It says a lot when you can't even get people to listen when it's free. I get offers from Sirius in the mail at least once a week, that go right in the trash.

    "Yeah, I don't know. You're right." seems like a pretty standard way of getting through a phone call like that.

    I dropped it when they fired Anthony. They practically offered to suck my dick to keep me but I told them to fuck off.

    I just bought a new car and have Stern now but I seriously listen for about 5-10 min before I have to change it, doubt i'll pay for it when my 3 months are up. Spotify beats the shit out of all other radio for only $10 a month... and I can listen to full albums with no ads in my car. F you Sirius.

    I tried to cancel the 2 subscriptions in the 2 cars that were sold since the new cars have it one year free. After 40mins of playing pass the phone around I had to hang up.

    I still tune into the show, but too often find myself changing the channel. I can't remember the last time I listen to a show from start to finish without Artie/Jackie. I do enjoy the Jay Thomas Show, but Jay has to take a hint on Friday's-Shuli kills the show. I like Pete Dominic when he was on in the mornings. Sirius/XM country stations suck and like NFL radio during the season when I'm on the road traveling.
