Sorry for the lack of linkage for the past several days. So, without any further ado, here is the best of the web on Howard Stern:
After months of denying any wrongdoing, Captain Janks (whose real name is Tom Cipriano) called into the Howard Stern Show today to answer the allegations of getting paid for appearances and then not showing up when he was contracted to.” From Jersey Mike
For the record, I think that Jenks fessed up to (almost) everything and since he has been a staple of the show for such a long time, I do not mind Howard handing him $500.
50 Cent was in studio today. Coverage by Pam:
50 Cent said he was shocked when he saw the pictures of Rihanna following the alleged Chris Brown attack. 50 Cent, the rapper and hip hop icon, was on Howard Stern today talking about his life, his new video game, and the Chris Brown Rihanna situation.
Speaking of Baby Gorilla:
Lisa said that Artie’s book is still on the NY Times Best seller list. She said that Artie got a royalty check the other day. Artie said he didn’t want to say how much it was for though. Artie said that he doesn’t want to just blurt it out because he knows he’ll get phone calls from people begging him for money.
Artie then blurted out that it was a hundred grand.Via Shabooty.com
I also got some linkage on Sirius. First, Bob from Bob’s Blitz visits Mad Dog’s studio.
And finally, the Media Doctor weighs in:
Despite assurances to the contrary, I am afraid my beloved Sirius is about to become exactly the type of monolithic, out of touch company that I despise.
As for Adam Carolla’s Podcast, I have not been able to listen to his second or third show. However, I am planning to do so tomorrow, and will blog my experience from somewhere Downtown.
Prior to podcasting how could this have happened? In past years he would have had to go hat in hand to multiple stations to get someone to LET him back on the air. All the time being silent so as to demonstrate he is a “good boy” and not upset the radio gatekeepers at potential future stations. The beauty of podcasting is: if he can keep an audience guess who will be asking him back. (And yes – morning radio pays way more than any podcast opportunity in existence.) Maybe someone will pick him up, maybe he’ll move on to some of the other projects he’s been working on. We’ll see. Read on from MWG Blog
