    This just occured to me, Howard has full autonomy to program 101, In his mind what better way to showcase all the great programing WR has to offer than by offering all their content on sirius first? Give the fans a free taste that follow him now so they will jump at the alacarte sub plan?

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new REVOLUTION
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again, don't get fooled again, no no no no no
    Don't get fooled again

    Yeah
    Meet the new boss
    Same as the old boss

    You'll have to go ask someone who actually gives a fuck.

    Whalerock isn't providing content though, they're just building the platform for Howard to distribute his.

    It's lazier than the secret admissions cliffhanger that they pulled when they left krock.

    Hatley being hired bugs me. I have a feeling he is the liaison to WR. Howard has a history of using his current airwaves to promote his next. Hatley tweeted to trust them on the content coming.

    no but they are selling it. Howard uses it on sirius it's a limited run free trial to bring in paying subs when Howard leaves in Dec.

    Who knows if Howard's employees have to be contracted with Whalerock. I wouldn't think so. This can't be part of some HSS grand plan though. Howard's 61 and tired. There are no grand plans unfortunately. I'm just sick of repackaged old shit. Much of the HSS is in the genre of topical humor. Howard is as entertaining as his last show.

    I don't think it will happen for a while. Tyler the Creator's "rollout" will be an app released "first half of 2015."

    This really does spell the end for our "warrrior." Whalerock appears to offer themselves as nothing more than that of a middleman (buzz words galore: "synergistic" and "media hubs") between the "celebrity" and his/her audience, utilizing primarily the "artist's" website/Twitter account/Instagram account. One of the features Whalerock is touting is the opportunity for fans to "interact" with the "artist" ("Robin, what is he saying?").

    More to the point, Gunky's demographics don't lend themselves to the business venture. Put simply, Gunkard's audience is too old to have patience subscribing to a "product" that promotes itself as "digital media hubs." Add the fact that Wigboy's fanbase who followed him to Sirius (keep in mind, he met only the initial benchmark for bringing in new subscribers) is not about to allow themselves to be fucked/fooled again.

    This strikes me as a pathetic and desperate ploy by Wiggy to gain some type of leverage in his negotiations with Sirius. Classic Buchwald, however this time it won't work. Sirius knows Beth's-husband's subscriber numbers and I can't imagine they will go beyond any lowball number to keep Yoda's "Dad" working at Sirius past the end of the year.

    Howard can program 101 anyway he wants. I can't wait to see what Brett meant by trust us.

    what easier way for Howard to get off of any contact with 101 too. The shows would all be digital playback and Howard will get all those shows free as an advertising trade off. WR will tell the others they must allow it's use as part of their deal.

    I bet they sold Howchie on some app like the Kardashians and he thinks he can make 80+ million in sales like they did.

    I hate companies that make it difficult to understand what they actually do. I'm still not clear on how Whalerock is going to benefit Gunky. The description makes it sound like it's a corporate podcast or YouTube channel.

    They've been promising new content for years but all we get is the same lame recycled crap. Several times Tim Sabien was supposed to go on SFRT and announce a new programming lineup on H101. He never went on and the programming never materialized. It's just more lies and broken promises, that's all Howard ever delivers.
