Just re-listening to an old appearance of Rick's on THSS and the exchange went something like this: Howard: I operate on a very childish level; if I have success, then nobody else should have success. Artie: That's why Jackie left, he couldn't get at the marbles. Howard: That's right, Jackie took his marbles and went home. Rick: I know, Sirius offered me $45 dollars a show; you really do have all the fuckin' marbles! I didn't realize the "Revolution" involved slave wages even for on-air talent. What a joke. So now we know that Bubba and Jay Thomas (now) are/were making fuck all, and depend on outside sources of income. Absolutely pathetic. The only reason to do a show at Sirius is to get some kind of exposure. In the same interview, Rick talked about how he'd like a shot at another show--he had a cancelled one at K-Roc after Marbles left for Sirius.
