If only he would retire....
Maybe Sirius could lower their fees. I hate that a part of my subscription cost goes toward paying this moron.


He's the reason I canceled. An extra $3/mo to support on air farting, belching and childishness? Not me! He obviously brought more subscribers than he turned away. I'm not complaining really, I voted with my wallet & quit.

I found for about the same as a year of service, I could buy an iPod adapter for my car stereo. My iPod is loaded with 80GB of music (not a stinker in the lot), no commercials, and a play list that is much larger than any 2 or 3 or more sat radio stations.

Ahhhh... But, I read it as "Howard is funny if you don't like him. Don't listen. There is a bunch of other channels to listen, too." Since I don't like him, he must be funny. I did take the advice of the second sentence, and don't listen. As for what channels are listening to me, I don't want them to do that. I prefer to listen to channels myself, but really don't want them listening to me. ;)

I also have an IPOD with close to 5000 songs on it. I don't use it in the car often though because I like to listen to things that I am not always familiar with and I know all the songs on the IPod. I just ordered a Slacker http://www.slacker.com/ and I am going to give it a shot and see what it is like. I ordered the 25 channel unit (from the last WOOToff). It may be able to replace my XM service in the future. I really enjoy Underground Garage (including the dj's on the channel) and many of the XM talk channels though and would miss them. :(

My Slacker arrived from Woot today, and, so far I am impressed. It came preloaded with 25 random "radio stations" and I listened to the "Alternative" channel while at the house that I am rebuilding today. This evening I am loading 25 channels of my choice into the unit (it takes forever) and will have more variety that I am interested in for tomorrow's listening.

Good riddance to bad rubbish!

I will not miss him.



Agreed. He's become the Willie Mays of radio personalities. I actually loved him in his early days in DC, and his middle days in NY. Now, he's just done. Time for the pasture Howard.
