Once You Go Sirius, Can You Go Back?

Robin noted that Bubba the Love Sponge won’t be doing a live show on Friday mornings anymore because he’s now broadcasting on terrestrial radio before his afternoon show on Howard101. Howard said he had no idea what to air in Bubba’s place, so Robin laughed that Bob Levy wanted the Miserable Men Show to take over. Howard then sarcastically acted surprised that Bob was available. Howard wondered how Bubba would transition from the heavily-censored terrestrial radio style to the freedom of Sirius, and Robin echoed the question. Howard asked Gary to pull up Bubba’s show on the in-studio monitors, but Gary reported that Bubba doesn’t start his terrestrial gig until tomorrow. Howard and Robin then discussed their hope that the Sirius-XM merger would be approved by congress and free up the funds necessary to make Bubba exclusive to Howard101 again.
