Jan 08, Location: Sorry I am just not buying it. Hey I have no problem with you guys fighting this issue, but again I don't think most care that much about it. Remember the folks on this forum are a small, small footprint of the overall subscriber base.
Generally it is those that a bit more technical minded that find forums like this that are even aware that this is going on. If it isn't about hearing the filth then I stand corrected, but again I am not buying that a beep changes the meaning of a song when it replaces a curse word.
Howard Stern will not be censored anymore than Shade45 is censored. Just because certain channels won't be playing uncensored version doesn't mean you can't hear it on another that will.

During my last semester in college, when Howard was still at K-Rock, I was offered an internship at the show on which, unfortunately, I had to pass due to workload and scheduling.

Henceforth, Stern fans will only be able to hear his unique brand of narcissistic pre-adolescent scatology and prurience by paying for a subscription to Sirius satellite radio. The religious groups to which Butterworth refers have remained uncommonly silent on the issue of morning radio shows.
So have media watchdog groups. The freedom on morning radio shows is a stark contrast to what some consider an atmosphere of artistic censorship prevailing in . If it turns into a major thing with Stern issuing a press conf.
I think it should be noted but until then, I don't see why the show's page should be updated whenever O&A make a stink over Howard. If anything put it on the O&A page since in the context of that show it's a larger issue.
The Howard Stern Show aired for the last time on AM and FM airwaves on December 16, Background. FCC fines since the FCC believed there may have been some uncertainty as to the reach of the Carlin case, the FCC acted on December 18 to issue a combined $, NAL, rather than revoke its broadcasting licenses.
