Chris “Mad Dog” Russo stopped by to promote the launch of Mad Dog Radio on Sirius channel 123.

The sports radio host said he was disappointed by Artie Lange’s Rolling Stone profile as well as his absence from the show this morning. “Howard’s giving you a chance every day for four or five hours! Come in and have fun!” he said.

Chris later took issue with Howard for even thinking about retiring in 2011. “You’re gonna be here for a long time!” he pleaded. “Please!”

Chris then commented on the solidity of Sirius, saying the company had continued to build his new channel and arranged his trips so he could broadcast live from Major League Baseball’s Spring Training: “I don’t get the impression that we’re about to fall apart.”
