    I heard a promo for that show today, Abe was going to reveal how Chicago "went crazy" for Howard when he arrived for AGT.

    Like Abe or not... He was hired by Howard to fill his 101 Channel and for Howard to completely ignore those guys just shows how unaware he is. :dontknow:

    Good point. I'm beginning to believe that the Mid-West Water Pig set these guys up on the channel and Howard had zero to do with it... Very odd how little grace he shows towards these guys that only sing his music

    The thing I like best about Abe Cannon is that he gives Evil Dave potato chips.

    i think ignoring your directs and treating them as incompetent, is called "management". I see it so often in so many organizations that I figure it is intentional and normal for managers.

    I guarantee you that Abe Kanan isn't getting paid for that shit show of his and Howard puts it on 101 because he's fucking desperate.

    Although I pretty much find it disgusting that Sirius airs any podcasts, I find it fucking hilarious that O&A are able to scam far better, and more relevant "free" programming than Howard. I've heard Joe Rogan comment that he let's them air his show for free. And they play a few other podcasts during the weekend mornings...all of it from comics that routinely do their show. The closest thing Howard has had to that was the Greg Fitzsimmons show--is that even still on? Regardless, it's clear that O&A have far more friends willing to give them high-quality podcasts gratis than Howard. Abe Kanan? Really? That douchebag's only claim to fame was that he used to work for Mancow...and now he's on H101?
