Of course it's impossible to pay anybody else any money when Howard is gettng so much. Howard acts like he is only an employee of the company but I think he owns a large chunk of the company stock. He could drop a few bucks on those two nobodies to stop the crying and hardly feel it.

I am older than Howard. I admit there are a lot of popular entertainment things that I do not get (such as straight rap - mix it with music and I can take a small dose). Among the things I absolutely do not get are Bubba and Ferrell. They both talk in raspy voices and try to be outrageous. Shock the puss and weigh the shit bits are not remotely funny to me. Those guys are anti-Howards. I cannot listen to them for more than five minutes, despite my desire to understand why Howard is such a big fan.

I would love to hear Fred do a show on his own. He would never do it but he has the ability to surprise from time to time. Would be very interesting.

I like Bubba. I say pay him.

And you have to respect the guy for not just calling Howard and begging him to talk to Mel and Scott Greenstein on his behalf. HE's putting it on the line and I like that. I like Bubba.

The other choice would be to give riley martin a two hour show everyday. I'm sure Riley would do it for 1/10th of Bubba's money.

I don't think I could take Riley every day... Bubba's show is f'ing great though- they need to pay the guy.

I could deal with Riley every night. It would give the channel the 'Art Bell' type show that they need at night. What they need to do with Bubba is let his ass walk away, and fast. He doesn't contribute to the subscription base at all, and therefore his presence on Sirius is irrelevant.

I mean, if Howard worked Friday and kind of chilled out but Thursday more and more feels like the blow off day!
Well i have not slept since yesterday around 2pm thanks to finals so i may have been a bit dazed, but i enjoyed todays so as much as any other day. id have to say that i am one of those people who is just as happy if not happier when howard has no guests and simply bullshits with the gang.

well he does make money he just divides it all out to his guys. i guess im splitting c hairs with that point, sorry. anyways, i dont feel bad for bubba at all for this . it was his decision to take this job and sign this contract and it was his decision to give away all his paycheck to his guys. now i do think it is really cool that he is so good to his gang but i just think he must have been able to work a little something out with either his guys or sirius in order for him to be in the black instead of the red.

You guys are missing the point of Bubba's fireside chat. People are getting hung up on the money. He wants corporate to quit fucking with him and his guys.

UM, correct me if I'm wrong, but that was a bit that Howard had HPE do on sirius while he was still broadcasting at KROC. I remember flipping back and forth between FM and Sirius.

I don't think Howardaddict is a Howard fan at all. I think he's a troll that chose a screen name for trolling purposes.

I'm keeping my fingers crossesd that Bubba finds a home on regular radio very soon so Howard can make room for some real talent. I think that 101 has so much potential to be great! The first step towards being great is to give Bubba the boot.
I think I'm insulted!
Just what kind of person are you talking about? I listen to bubba AND howard....a fan of both....what an elitist thing to say!
The problem with folks like you is that you only got sirius for howard. I can tell because if you truley loved satrad you would take a minute to "walk the dog" and find all the other GREAT shows that they offer. Instead your stuck on hs and the worse for it imo

oh please. I just got through listening to the whole fireside chat and it completely reeks of radio schtick. He built it up like this big deal then it turned out to be a whole lot of nothing except a plug to go buy radios. Sounded like the old "us against management" bit so I wouldn't get all bent out of shape that he's going to quit or be fired anytime soon.

I am really getting to like the show (and now I can actually record it and listen at work thanks to the SCH1 USB interface!) and I hope he sticks around after his contract is up.

Now you're drawing conclusions like he was...

I didn't know we were required to love SatRadio. I only got Sirius for Howard, but then discovered there was a lot more than just HS. Of course, I still spend most of my Sirius time on 100 or 101. Howard is like a part of my life. I've listened and commuted with him for the last dozen or more years.

These days, I find meself excited for Bubba to come on. It's still #2 to Howard's show, but it is a bonus I wasn't expecting. I didn't really like him at first. When they shocked the balls on Howard's show, it was one of the funniest things EVER, but I still didn't listen too much. But one night, I did start listening and found out that their show has really hit a groove. I know when people say they don't like BTLS because its all stippers, whores and shitting, etc that they probably haven't tried it lately. They do a lot of just shooting the shit and screwing with each other. Once you get to know the crew: Bubba, Brent, Manson, Spice Boy, Ned, Gene Lasker, 25 cent and others, it is a lot of fun. I'll say that many of their bits and song parodies blow Richard's and Sal's shit away. I'm not a huge fan of NASCAR, UFC or WWE, but they manage to make guests from those genres interesting, IMO. They have their own vernacular, partly because they don't know how to say things the right way, hehehe. But I love the little Bubbaisms like the re-shove, the gimmick, the shoot, the Deal, even when things get blowed up.

I suggest everyone GIVE BUBBA A CHANCE! Try it for a week, just like Grapenuts...
