    Today was Sterns last broadcast on terrestrial radio, it is a sad day. F the FCC for making this happen.

    If there are no media outlets for them to regulate then they will be obsolete and out of a job....

    radio was dead a long time ago, this Sirius radio is not really that interesting to me, and I don't see it being too revolutionary..

    but IMO radio was dead with or without Howie stern

    He was the only thing keeping it alive. The only reason to even turn on the radio.

    I thank the FCC for forcing him to go to Sirius. Now I can enjoy his show uncensored :D

    Reminds me of "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." :D

    Well well, it's applicable here too. Opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one. ;)

    So what was the big appeal of Howard Stern?

    Hes not afraid to say what he thinks no matter how politically incorrect it may be. He is a breath of fresh air from all the same programming we are forced to listen to and watch day after day. And he is entertaining whether you agree of disagree with what hes saying. That is why he's appealing to me. I respect him for cutting all the bull****.

    Plus hes fighting for our freedom of speech against these sensoring ass*****.

    Ah, anarchists.. I guess I'm opting out on the 'boob comparison' shows. :)

    Well, whatever a man, a woman, another man, a donkey, and a midget in a baby diaper want to do on the radio.. they should, right??!! Fight the power!

    So, being the Stern fan that you are, are you going to cough up 13 bucks a month for Sirius or remain upset over him leaving FM?

    It's amazing what half a billion dollars can do to those lofty principles.

    I think that I have to support this. And when I can afford to make the switch I will. Not Just for Stern but because Sirius and other pay radio services like XM are trying to make radio good again, and it is something I would like to see come to fruition.

    the frustrating thing about today being his last broadcast was that for the live, outdoor portion he was only about 6 blocks from where I was, only I was working and couldn't go...:(

    I hardly listen to the radio, but when I did it was never for Howard Stern.

    I don't see free Radio dying, because I'm not paying for satellite radio. Plus, I have an iPod and a CD player.

    Please, Stern hasn't been funny in about 10 years (many would argue he never was). He is a bitter person who says he invented everything anyone does on the radio. "Tell him, Fred"

    I said the same thing until my new car came with XM and 6 months paid. Satellite radio is awesome and I happily continued my subscription after the 6 free months. Plus, I have an iPod and a CD player.
