    Thread: Official Howard Stern Thread (Fans Only)

      Frank aka Rick flipped his lid when I posted that question.

      cause first you said that Howard doesn't mention other jocks names when he bashes them, so I corrected you. then you said that nobody else but the o&a fans heard about Howie being embarrased by his daughter's antics...so I had to correct you again. then you took offense to it and had to throw in the 'great equalizer' completely brushing off the debate cause you were proven wrong twice with "You're getting upset over what? The fact Howard is more popular than O&A?" Then you still had to continue cause regardless of what you think you were still trying to make some point coming into the thread. Shall I go on?

    2. 02-03-2006 11:25 AM #102
      I stated Howard never says O&A's name while bashing other jocks. That was the entire point of my post. He actually said their name.
      Continue please...

    3. 02-03-2006 11:29 AM #103
      No you said that Howard never mentions 'their' name when he was pissed off at them. He had mentioned their names a few times during his rants on 92.3. I remember clearly him mention them saying how they are looking for his approval (love me daddy) and ripping him off. But regardless if you want to continue arguing with me take it to IM cause I dont' want to get another Howie thread locked.

      You guys are funny. Like he didn't take any vacation before or talked for 5 hrs a day straight w/o commercials. I'd bet the amount of time he's on the air live M-Th is greater today than M-F before with all the commercials. Didn't he used to have ~21 minutes per hour of spots before. Now it's like 5-10. Did I mention the replay of the show on 101? My "expectations" of the show are 100% spot-on!!
      Anyone who's a Stern fan will love what's going on at Sirius...and even if you don't...the music and other programming is worth the $10/mo alone.

      They are non Howard Stern fans in a fans only thread

      Hmm, I figured listening to and enjoying the guy for 10+ years qualified me as a fan.
      I'm also an O&A fan. I always have been.
      I listened to Howard in the morning and O&A in the afternoon. I enjoyed them both.
      I don't enjoy Howard's new show or most of his shows AFTER Nipplegate.
      The fact that he thinks the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is after him all the time is enough.
      Obviously his fans didn't get another president elected during reelection... He really thought he could change the way things went and nothing happened.
      I really don't let O&A influence my opinions. I've always given his show a chance and even the new show a chance, but so far I'm underwhelmed. It was supposed to be this HUGE thing and it's not.

      Some info from the 1/23/06 Business Week:
      If Stern brings on 1.25 million "Stern-only" subscribers in 2005/06...that alone will result in over $50M+ profit for Sirius even after the entire 5-year compensation package is paid out.
      This does not factor in additional "Stern-only" subscribers that will join in 2007/08/09.
      This does not factor in new advertising revenue.
      According to Business Week, Sirius has already gotten their ROI one month into a 60 month contract!
      Love him or hate him...you cannot deny the success of the business side of Stern. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      As far as I know there is no such thing as a"Howard Only" subscription. So I think it might be hard to tell how many people subscribed for "Howard Only".

      I agree, I'm not sure how they can make that determination, I know that when I bought my Sirius setup, it was inspired by Stern but I would not pay $12/month just for him, it's all the other goodies that come with it that make it worth it!
      On the other hand if he stayed on FM, I would not get a Sirius nor XM. Now that I have it, all the other selections make it worth it, so if he left, I would continue my subscription, I guess it's one of those things that unless you try it, you'll never know what you're missing and once you have it, you don't want to miss it.
      What I'm curious is if they incorporate the sales of Hardware into their profit formula, or just subscriptions?

      They calculated that ~50% of all new subscribers from the day Howard announced he's going to Sirius are due to him. That's the baseline number they're using. I'm sure they have a more complex formula to give a more accurate count...like the difference per month prior/after and add on normal % increases...
      E-Mike...just subscriptions....

      this may have been brought up already but i don't want to read all 4 pgs
      what's howard saying about the piracy of his program & getting the fcc involved?

      There are a bunch of pirate stations broadcasting his Sirius show on regular FM. frequencys. I'm guessing he doesn't want to get in any trouble just cause his uncensored show is getting broadcasted publicly without his concent.

      He said that the FCC is not bothering him right now but said that certain people are generating false humors that FCC is trying to go after Sirius and XM on limiting their free speech abilities but again those are rumors for now.

      Yeah I read an article last week that some people have equipment with a high powered FM transmitter to broadcast the feed into an FM frequency and people in the area hear Stern live. There were two incidents reported. The owners of the Stations said that the feed did not come from them. The FCC then commented that for about $1500 someone can buy the needed equipment to do that and it's illegal but they said they are not holding Sirius nor Stern responsible for that.

      hmmm...i read that Sirius is asking the FCC to crack down on the pirates...not that howard will get in any trouble for his broadcasts. he can't get into any trouble.
      what i meant to say was what is howard saying about people pirating his show & if he has mentioned sirius asked the FCC to go after the pirates?

      I have not heard Stern comment on that during the hours I listen.
      I found the article I talked about: http://www.nydailynews.com/ent....html

      Is it me or did the Sybian get louder this morning? Seemed like my car seats were humming as Gary turned up the power, another 10% and it would of felt like those massage couches!

      god, and as always he wouldn't shutup about it. it was like he wanted robin to just kiss his behind non-stop. reminded me of the time he bought robin some boots, and i guess she wasn't as grateful as he wanted her to be, so he threw a fit. he can be so pathetic at times.

      What, no comments about Richard Christie's brazilian? (I'm sure we'll be hearing those sound clips for years to come)
