    There was so much anticipation, so much hype . . . What happened?

    The revolution never happened but Howard did load up his pockets

    Stern transitioned to the exact persona that he previously loathed and lampooned. The "Revolution" became a time of perpetual vacations, The Hamptons, Beth and pissing on his fans. Promises of additional content on Sirius went unfulfilled. The show "evolved" into a pile of shit.

    $500 million dollars makes you way less funny.

    Sirius handed that asshole a ton of money without keeping him in check and continued to do so no matter how lazy, unfunny and uninterested he became. Combine being on cruise control with surrounding yourself with only ass-kissers, celebrity douchebags and Beth and that leaves you with the Howard Stern we know today.

    That said, I loved the first few years at Sirius. Nothing like his build-up, but nothing ever is.

    Listening to the old K-ROCK segments, Howard would blast Tom Chiusano and the management for being "cheap". He used to complain that the station didn't want to pony up big money for live broadcasts on location, contests for fans, and more publicity stunts like the boxing matches they had. Funny, now that Howard essentially holds the purse strings, they don't do any of that shit. Those idiots at SIRIUS should've made sure that cocksucker had to spend a certain amount of money on the show instead of pocketing every last nickel. "We don't have any budget around here Robin..."

    I still can't believe the "revelation" that Howard had work done. I'm still stunned.

    Stern caught lightning in a bottle with Jackie and I know a lot of you like Artie so, Artie too. Now he tries to run his show with promoted interns. He's not going to spend money. No competition. He's going to hunker down with his marbles and wait for that contract to end.

    SXM freed Howie from these people....They kept him in check. Boring audiences was not an option when you have a quarterly report card and your position/salary depends on attracting listeners.
