    Howard Stern Spinning Bubba Debacle

    I am tuned into the Howard Stern show today and I can not believe what I am hearing. Howard is actually trying to spin this terrestrial replay like it is no big deal.

    This is the same guy that blasted XM and O&A for replaying regurgitated crap. This is getting worse and worse as the minutes tick by. It is transparent as hell that management is feeding Howard lines and he is being a good little puppet, I have now officially lost all respect for him as well. This is UGLY.

    Howard is now daring people who are complaining about Bubba to cancel. I can not believe what I am listening to, I am truly dumbfounded. He just told the most recent caller to more or less F#@$ off.

    After 12 years of listening to Howard and 3 years of him on Sirius, I just canceled.

    Wow things look to be turning a bit ugly. I'm trying to stay neutral at this point and just hoping any publicity is good publicity and the stock continues up.

    Please keep us updated with details, thanks

    Did they offer you any free months when you canceled?

    They sure did, I politely declined and asked for a refund for the month of January. I suggest others do the same.

    Howard Stern Spinning Bubba

    Howard said it himself today..this is good for Bubba he gets what he wanted..time off to spend with his family which Bubba said himself is going down hill…Bubba is #1 in Tampa so he gets more money..He still gets to do a live show on Sirius on Fridays while Howards show is not live. When Bubba Goes over the line or possibly gets fired from free radio eventually he will..he can come back then and then Sirius will be in much better shape and everything will work it self out….There are still alot more to listen to on Howard 101 so if your a Bubba fan he still there and Sirius Will never be able to make everyone happy…But if you think cancelling your service is the answer ask yourself what are you gonna do then? Listen to free Radio? Who are you all kidding you are going Nowhere else!!! If so you will be the one Missing out....

    I had an additional subscription specifically to listen to Bubba while at work, I canceled that subscription today.

    Howard and Tim sounded so unbelievably stupid today that there is no possible way they believe what they are saying.

    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.
