Stop bitchin' and keep listenin'
I like Bubba better now on the "censored" show. He is a risqué as ever but just can't use dirty words.
Better yet, there is now little or no gross-out "humor", just real humor.
Bottom line, as a matter of economics, Sirius is no longer able to pay what Bubba is worth. Howard revived Bubba's career, which enabled Bubba to re-enter the more lucrative world of terrestrial radio. Bubba tried to do 2 shows a day for a year, but found it physically impossible to do.
Sirius and his fans wanted to keep Bubba on satellite radio and a compromise was struck, which, like any compromise, did not fully satisfy anybody.
I find the show to be even more topical than before, and don't miss the physical and psychological humiliations that, unfortunately, became the mainstay of the show.
I agree with Howard that Bubba is as good as ever, but for the occasional bleeps. I even find that bleeping of a word is often funnier that hearing the word itself.
