I much prefer Prairie Home Companion on NPR - call me old fashioned, and someone who enjoys quality entertainment.

If you like anything on NPR, then it's no suprise that you hated Stern. That is like comparing apples and cars.

But yet they have never had a good fiscal quarter, definitely not a business to invest in.

I signed up with Sirius when they first launched, at times I have had two accounts. I will stick with them even after Stern is gone because I cannot and will not stand for the constant attack of repetitive commercials.

Not only will I admit I listen to him (and the replays) whenever I can, but I consider him a true genius. Howard Stern is the sole reason for me buying Sirius.

I take that back...I also bought it for the NFL coverage.

I did not renew my subscription to Sirius because of its financial situation. I loved it, and if it ever gets back on sound footing I would re-subscribe...maybe. I'm listening to internet radio and finding many of the same things I found on satellite.

I did not listen to Howard Stern or any talk radio. Talk without being a part of the conversation puts me to sleep. I'd rather sing along to music when I drive.

They are gonna start charging an extra $3 a month because of some new govt. tax? Will this make many other subscribers start dropping. I enjoy it in the am, used to listen to bluesville, but I liked the old DJ better. Still better than all the clearchannells commercialls on all the other radio stations in this town.

We drive 40K to 50K miles per year (or more). We have never listened to Stern but, we do listen to the Old Time Radio shows (the Shadow, Gunsmoke, Dragnet etc) while we are on the road. A great collection of oldies music. Weather, Local Traffic and so on.

It works with our lifestyle very well.

I did let my subscription expire in my Jeep. We got a free year when we purchased the vehicle. However, in my work car (that I am in all day) Sirius is a MUST HAVE.

I do see them pricing themselves out of business. Just remember how much money it takes to launch a sat into space.

Part of the FCC aggrement for the merger with XM will not allow them to raise prices for 2 years.

Me too. I decided that I do like some of the music channels but those alone would not keep me as a subscriber if Stern goes.

Ethel Mertz forever! LOL
