Well, they were never that big a draw on XM, because XM never advertised them, but we really don't know how many signed up for them, except they themselves said only 30,000, so that's why they went to Free FM, so more people would be attracted to their hour(s) on XM, where they are a #1 show, second only to Dylan, well definitely in the top 10, even though XM has no way of knowing how many listen, except they do polls, except the polls are informal, but the CEO of XM said it, so they are definitely in the Top 10, maybe even #1, second only to Dylan, even though they don't advertise them, except when they do in a country wide advertising blitz . . .

Uhhhhm, did I tell you that O&A are the #1 radio show in the country? Jay Leno said it, so it must be true.

I guess the trolls took their ball and went home. How sad seeing Goreds2 reduced to regurgitating links.

In fact, the Arbitron subscription service stations and advertisers pay for does not even include Arbitrends. They only started providing them at the request of stations who wantto have more ammunition if they show they had a "good" month.

All that aside, I agree that Arbitron has a monopoly on radio ratings and their methodology, having a supposedly scientifically picked sample of listeners fill out diaries of what stations they are listening to and when, seems outdated relative to available technology. At some point in the very near future "people meters" will replace the diary system (I'm not kidding) where electronic devices are pointed at peoples cars and homes to more accurately determine what stations people are actually listening to. The system is already in use in parts of Europe.

EDIT: I deleted the part which referenced Radio and Records because they're dead wrong--O&A did get a 1.6 as documented here:

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...p-410181c.html

That's right...you're right, it was Arbitrends, not Arbitron. I'm glad to see that someone else out there enjoys a little Adam in the morning.

She never even done radio before!

It's over Johnny . . .
O&A spent a whole show dissing Whoopi and her morning jingles. The next day she dropped by their studio and silenced their asses. It's so funny that she's still kicking their asses, this time with ratings.

I find it interesting that the second article doesn't mention the fact that WAQX was actually the first terrestrial station to try broadcasting OnA's XM show. They tried that two years ago when they yanked Stern off the air. OnA did so badly that the station scrapped the experiment and hired the morning team that was just replaced.

Happened to catch of little of their show this morning and they're talking about how to get out of a ticket, including the "special cards" and placing your hands on the wheel before the cop gets to the vehicle. Hmmmm, where have I heard that before? Oh yeah, it was on the Stern show yesterday.
