100 & 101 = silence
Howard Preview might start Monday..
As most know by now, even people who hate Stern have tuned into Sirius 100 and 101 to hear what was going to be on the air to Jan.. The question of the week was what will be on 100 and 101 when they start!??!?! Nothing, but some farts could start soon.. In typical Howard fashion this is getting wonderful PR, and stories are popping up by the hour about the silence on his 2 Sirius stations.. Got to love it..
"Things will start happening when they are ready," explained Stern on his radio show this morning. By mid-show, Stern was lining up a troop of farters to provide the first sounds heard on his Sirius channels and the scroll changed to "Farters coming soon." The explosive sounds could come as early as tomorrow morning.
FMQB.com is reporting the following:
As energized as Stern has sounded about his channels, he faced down pressure over the last couple weeks from Sirius President of Entertainment and Sports Scott Greenstein, VP Talk & Entertainment Programming Jeremy Coleman and other Sirius execs to add programming for the debut. Stern had met with a programming team at Sirius in late August, mentioning at the time that there would likely be an appearance by his parents and several Wack Pack members as the channel gears up for his official arrival on January 9. Stern also said he is looking for a program director for the channels.
