    That would be super cool and they did mention a podcast willy situation but I doubt it.

    Podcasts, or something like it, will be the certain future of talk entertainment and information. Live streaming and podcasts.

    There's no way to fudge the numbers of listeners. The people hosting the podcasts know exactly how many people are downloading their podcasts. At the moment there's very little in the way of annoying advertising or commercial interruptions. That will change in the future, but for now the podcast willy is the way to get your fix of talk radio.

    Sirius should look into developing this side of the market place, especially for its censored brand of material.

    As a Bubba fan, would any of you pay 99 cents to have the Bubba Show on mp3?

    I'm game for the podcast thing!

    I wouldn't pay 99 cents/show, but I'd pay $10-12/month to download them all.

    Yeah...I think that could be the business model for the future, especially for adult talk content. It might be a little tricky to do a monthly grab, especially with a show like Howard's because of all the vacation time, but perhaps as a weekly set of shows.

    It seems like the industry standard is geared for the .99 cents a show model. You could still listen live for a monthly fee and get all of the channels, but if you're only in it for a Bubba the Love Sponge or a Howard Stern, then why not let fans get the shows that way, especially for those people that aren't subscribers.

    It would certainly bring in some much needed cash. I don't think that it would hurt subs, but who knows?

    I'd pay some cash for a podcast type situation.

    It won't really be "internet radio exclusive" with the FM show expanding. But an uncensored podcast is a definite possibility. He said he has to prepare his site for something big.

    How about an "I don't really care" vote category.

    I used to listen to Bubba on my local FM back in the day, but never bothered to tune in his show on the sat rad.

    I do wish him luck though.

    I don't think a podcast or internet show would work for Bubba. Most of his show is based around call-in folks, often on the road. Going off the airwaves would pretty much eliminate his trucker audience. Guys sitting at home on their computer are a smaller part of his fanbase. It would be a better option if wi-fi was available everywhere.

    An internet show could work.Maybe he wont have as many callers but he will have some.I listen to a few of the sherdog radio shows and they get plenty of callers.

    This might be way out of left field, but Bubba could do something in line with what Tom Green has been doing for the last couple of years. Tom has an Internet Television show that operates off and on every week or two. He operates out of his own house and he takes phone calls and video conferences with the help of Skype technology.

    I think a live show every week or two weeks with Bubba and his army could be very interesting.

    Although I am not a fan I am following the story and there's some grimy shit going on.

    When Bubba went off on SIRIUS on Friday it sounded so unlikely he would be on SIRIUS. I have more optimism than ever. It's clear he wants to be on and he will have enough of an impact if they don't sign him that SIRIUS really doesn't have a decision. The decision is just about how much the deal will be. I'm very optimistic about him being on SIRIUS and getting what he wants.
    BTW, posting from the Jacksonville airport after a great Bubbapalooza show :bigthumbup:

    I sent an email to Tim Sabean about Bubba leaving and he emailed me back saying that Bubba would in fact continue broadcasting with Sirius.

    You know what, people will think we're crazy, but I agree. :jj: They forced his hand and got a taste of the shitstorm that would ensue. Plus he once again showed how serious he was about coming back. He could've very easily resigned himself to the fact he wasn't returning.

    Tim is a good guy, and if any listeners had any doubt about that, they should look at how he's calling listeners back to talk about the Bubba situation.

    Tim has been calling people today who left a message with him about the whole Bubba situation too.
    Good guy.:bigthumbup:

    EDIT: Opps! Just noticed the post above me mentioned the same thing.
    Ignore mine! ;)
