Yet you say we take radio to seriously? I've never referred to any radio show as OUR's or MINE. Apparently you can't say the same.
Bugs you, doesn't it.

Ipso facto, it can be said that Ratings = Talent.

Unless you want to say O&A's talent lies in not gaining listeners? If so, you'll get no argument from me.
Ya, you're probably right. They aren't gaining any listeners.

Ooooh, I am stunned by the "we are failing all the time" talking points. Gee, 10 years on radio and still the best comeback they (and by proxy, you) have is "OH ARE WE???"

xzi, when they put themselves out there with statements like "we are sitting in his chair and now we can have all his listeners" and then proceed to grab a 2.8 at 18th where "he" got a 6.0+ at #1, me thinks they have a little splaining to do about their level of "succeeding".

Who do they have explaining to do to? Stern's old listeners? What I want to know if why do you care so much??

I think it's unrealistic to expect them to be pulling in Stern's FM numbers already-- but why do they have explaining to do? All their talking points so far... we are doing better than Roth, we have more listeners then Stern does (now by the way, not in 1998, or even in 2002) are all true, are they not?

What happens when they are at a 3.2 and 16th? And then a 3.5 and 12th? Do they still have explaning to do? After all, some would say they are pulling CBS Radio, and FM, out of the shitter in that case... and that is the current trend...

You need to just relax and not worry so much about the bbbboys' rating and just enjoy SIRIUS.

Better yet xzi, perhaps it is you who should explain why as a non Sirius subscriber you continue to defend and promote XM and O&A on this forum? I think it is you that needs to relax and quit being so freaking defensive and jumping into every thread that mentions XM or O&A.

Clearly Jgatie brings up a clear and solid point for which you have no answer! You are just babbling.. blah, blah, blah!

Are they all true? No. Your so-called facts are all based on assumptions. Sure they have more FM listeners, but there is no way to tell who has more listeners.

You definately fit inot the 18-32 demo of guys who can't buy clue, so they listen to Free FM. Oh wait, you listen on XM, you got it becuase of the kids, oh wait nevermind, you got XM because you like the service first and the kids second or third. Oh, I used " " and a smiley, that means I'm kidding, wait, no I'm not......

Geez, How many threads are you going to post that same link in?

It says to me that Cracked magazine doesn't pay enough for the author to afford Premium radio...

YES! That was my F(*)#@$)(* POINT?! Do you guys even READ my posts? This is A-B-S-U-R-D now. You are arguing for the sake of arguing, and that's FOOLISH.

My entire point was how can ratings = talent and talent = 0 for O&A when NO ONE KNOWS HOW MANY F()*#@$)( LISTENERS EITHER OF THEM HAS?!?!

How's this. I bought XM to piss you off?

Feel better?

Burning up yet??

Get over it already, sheesh.
