Discussion in 'Howard Stern' started by Snick422, Nov 16, 2008.
Hamptons Howie will remain silent for sure.
So you don't think he will mention it because he is so loyal to SIRIUS XMs decisions?
You might be right, I just want you to clarify it.
Of course. He knows who pays his salary and he has no convictions.
She lost her channel, but she didn't lose her job, she is on Spectrum and who is to say that won't end up being her channel. Knowing Meg, she is going to push the limits on Spectrum to bring some kick ass music.
Does Meg live in the Hamptons? No.
Does she make near the money Howard rapes Sirius for? No.
Is she married to someone rich or famous? No.
Does she frequent Nobu? No.
A Klondike fan? Doubt it. Does anyone still eat that shit?
Based on the above information, she is insignificant to team Stern.
Besides, Meg is someone who actually cares about her job, the company that employs her, and the listeners. How foolish is that?
I wrote about how Howard would either ignore the mass firings and bad musical program shifts but then when he and Robin commented on it that day....duh, of course! Positive spin! "The Best of Everything". Frankly, considering how bad Sirius XM is doing before and after the changes, I don't blame Howard for not saying shit!
Sadly, though, I think Howard would probably have honestly gloated about the fact that Meg can't play those obscure records....Elvis Costello (not saying that was what her station played...saying that Howard never got into EC because Meg played him and that was too cutting edge....Jesus!).
Does Meg do anything for dogs? Yes, she volunteers
At North Shore Animal League? No, but....
Bitch got to go!
But hey, let's not bash the Klondikes. I admit, they talk about them so much that they got me jonesing for one....yet I never remember that constant plugging when I'm at the grocery store. Guess it ain't working well enough!
I won't consider buying them because they advertise on the show. If they're desperate enough to sell their crap on Sirius, they are probably not using top quality ingredients in their products. For instance, 100% milk now becomes 95% milk, 5% pus - that sort of thing.
Oh Lord. After hearing everyone argue about how is more sick in the head (and ironically, when presenting their arguments they made themselves sound more disturbed) now Howard is going into a rant defending the changes....Howard, the guy and others are canceling....don't be a company boy and piss off more people!
I think also in the first segment Howard was talking about being upset about getting a letter from Tim about a guy canceling...I'm sure there is just one...but then Howard back peddled. Howard is telling a guy to listen to Boneyard and yet that channel isn't there right now (it's AC/DC for the next few months and then they'll probably drag that out longer)! Stop making things worse...rubbing it in our face! No defense about there being no Backspin or Strobe....I guess this guy had his agenda but dropped it, huh?
Sirius.com has announced that Meg will be running Disorder on the Loft weekdays from 12-6 and also on the weekends beginning in Dec. So her same show just not her channel
he should have made a stand and threatened to walk out unless she got her old job back. just like he did when she got booted from WXRK. In fact, that is what everyone should do when someone is let go at their company, otherwise you have no convictions.
yeah really...how DARE Howard not raise a huge fuss
Yeah, right! At the very least he could have mentioned it. The fact that he only mentions the change in insanely glowing terms and then tries to spin customer complaints speaks volumes. It's kind of sad.
Wait a minute. A channel on the SIRIUS side got eliminated ? ! :scratch:
(Writing this down)
We lost a lot that didn't get a proper replacement. For what we lost, we didn't get much back. What really sucks is that XM has a whole lot of exclusive music stations and we have very few.
Sirius lost (with no real XM replacement):
The Strobe (Bring back Disco/Classic Dance Station to SiriusXM Petition)
Boombox (not sure that XM even had anything like this and they suggest Alt Nation with is absurd!)
Starlite (to say that the Blend is a substitute seems like a stretch).
Hot Jamz (The Heat plays pop...not the same format)
VinnyM27, you make a somewhat valid point.
I don't have a list but I think we all know which side lost the most employees.
You can add Universo Latino to that list as well.
They try to sell Caliente as a replacement but, it's not even close.
