Heard him mention a new affiliate this morning - good for him. Cox doesn't have any stations here in Michigan, but it would be interesting to see what he could do in Detroit now that morning drive is in a bit of a transition here on several stations.

Bubba was at WGRD here in Grand Rapids 20 years ago. If WKLQ starts carrying him (and their ratings blow), maybe it'll be like they're saying sorry for fucking with Stern in 2003.

They need to get Bubba here in Columbus. All the morning shows here suck. The station that had Howard on now have Bob and Tom. Those guys are idiots. Thank God I've had Sirius as long as I have. I would hate to go back to listening to shitty radio.
