You're in RI - did you listen to him on HJY? Howard was talking this mlorning about the owner of that station pulling him off the air because he (the station owner) is pissed off about Howard's move to Sirius. Howard was making fun of the guy for awhile.

Same thing. As soon as they started the "Best Of" shows during the holiday break, the station owner pulled the show in all the above-mentioned markets.

You should be able to pull in 94YSP with a good radio.

That's okay, but there are millions who love his show - myself included. Even people who don't like to listen to him are rightly appalled at what the FCC has done to his employer, which prompted his impending move to satellite radio.

So like everything in the field of entertainment, it comes down to personal taste?

The group that owns those stations is Citidel Communications. About a month ago they got fed up with Stern promoting Sirius so much so they started bleeping him whenever he did and they cut him off at 10AM sharp, even if the show wasn't over. Then when he went on vacation they pulled his "best of"s on the Syracuse station and replaced him with a delayed and sanitized version of Opie and Anthony's XM show. Last I heard Citidel was contracutally bound to return Howard to the air once he did live shows, and their PR said that was going to happen, but it appears not to have.

O&A were hinting that Citidel was going to break the contract and 'send Howard a bill", but that was before citidel said they would continue airing Howard when he returned from vacation.

What the FCC should have done to his employer was to revoke their license and shut them the fuck down, along with anybody else airing his show. The FCC has jurisdiction over the airwaves, they set the rules, the rules apply to everybody equally, and when you break the rules they should nail your ass to the wall for it. Simple as that.

I support the FCC fully on that particular score.

The FCC is selectively enforcing it's ill-defined "rules". If Howard should be shut down, then so should Oprah.

No argument here. I don't much like Oprah either.

Then bitch to Congress, because they clearly think it is and have delegated the power to do so to the FCC. However you think should be, that is not how it is, and unless you are bitching at Congress to change that fact, you're not really helping.

Telling me does nothing unless you're just looking for an argument, because I happen to think it *is* the FCC's place to enforce a moral standard on the airwaves. If you want to go beyond that standard, then you can get that by going to satellite radio, cable, ppv, etc.. The FCC has no jurisdiction over the content of these.

I'm surprised that this is coming from you.

BTW I have bitched to Congress. Am I now allowed to bitch here about it?

Nah, bitch all you like. The Otter Farm is good for that.

And why are you surprised? The fact of the matter is that there's a limited amount of radio spectrum. I'd rather not have it all filled up with shock jocks morons like Stern, thank you very much.

Yes, freedom of speech, but freedom of speech only works when everybody has a chance to speak. There's not enough space on the dial for everybody to speak up, so creating a situation where foul mouthed morons rule the airwaves doesn't seem all that bright.

I may disagree with the specific moral standard that the FCC enforces, but I agree with the need to enforce a standard of some sort.
