Also, Chest, sounds like you're from the St. Pete/Tampa area. I'm from around there myself.

Close...I'm in Jacksonville. I suppose Bubba was more syndicated than I had previously thought. Will you be going to the Florida Film Festival? Do you know of any good showings?

Oh, and in May you should come up north for the Jacksonville Film Festival, which just started last year. I don't think it'll ever be quite Sundance or anything, but I think it'll expand nicely in a few years. They've hinted at Bill Murray stopping by during the fest, which would be awesome.

I'll look into the Jax festival. I really like Jax--nearly moved there two years ago. I'm not going to the FFF (to little money right now) but I might catch it next year.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Howard Stern's ratings up
Crackdown appears to have boosted listenership

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Federal regulators may have painted a big bull's eye on Howard Stern's back, but the recent government crackdown on indecency over the airwaves has proven a boon to the shock jock's ratings.

The ribald radio host scored major gains in listenership during the winter quarter ended March 31 in the three biggest U.S. markets -- New York, Los Angeles and Chicago -- according to figures made public on Monday by the Arbitron radio ratings service.

In Stern's home market of New York, where his show is broadcast on WXRK-FM, he topped all morning drive-time competition with a 7.2 share in total audience, up 22 percent from the fall quarter and 18 percent from last winter, Arbitron said.

A radio ratings share is based on the number of people tuned to a particular program and how much time they spend listening for an average quarter hour. Stern's show had dipped slipped to No. 2 in total audience last fall.

Stern also returned to No. 1 during the first quarter among New York listeners aged 18 to 34 and 25 to 54. Overall, it was his best showing in the nation's top market since the fall of 2000, according to Viacom Inc.-owned Infinity Broadcasting, which syndicates Stern.

In Los Angeles, where he is carried on KLSX-FM, Stern climbed back to No. 1 in the key demographic of listeners aged 25 to 54 for the first time since the summer of 1995. He also rose from sixth place to fourth place in total drive-time audience with a 4.2 share. And in Chicago (WCKG-FM), Stern posted a 23 percent gain in morning drive time, jumping from 15th place to No. 9.

Stern's boost in ratings coincided with his latest conflict with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and a related clash with Clear Channel Communications Inc., the nation's biggest radio station operator.

In February, Clear Channel dumped Stern from its six stations that carried him under a new "zero tolerance" policy toward indecency, citing Stern's sexually frank interview with Rick Salomon, the former boyfriend of hotel heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton, and a racist remark from a caller that was aired during the broadcast.

The following month, the FCC levied a $27,500 against a Detroit radio station for a different Stern broadcast involving explicit discussion of sexual techniques. And in April, the FCC proposed another $495,000 in fines against Clear Channel for yet a third Stern broadcast, prompting Clear Channel to sever ties with the radio host for good.

The controversy has become a regular topic of discussion on his show in recent months, with Stern saying he has fallen victim to a conservative backlash prompted by Janet Jackson's breast-baring Super Bowl performance in February on CBS, also owned by Viacom.

After the latest round of fines were proposed, he issued a statement calling the FCC's actions part of a "McCarthy-type 'witch hunt.' " Stern also has accused the Republican-dominated FCC of singling him out in retaliation for his on-air opposition to President Bush and for urging listeners to vote for Democratic challenger John Kerry.

In San Diego, one of the markets where his show was removed by Clear Channel, radio station KIOZ-FM's drive-time ratings dropped from an 8.9 share in February to 0.7 in March, the first month without Stern. Stern's show remains syndicated on a total of 36 stations nationwide.

Yep, the public was reminded that he's still around and that checked misogyny is "funny" ... or something.  M'eh.  I'm not sure whether to be happy that the FCC has failed here or annoyed that things like Howard Stern and The Man Show pass for "humor."

Don't know if this has been posted yet or not.  I haven't seen it.  Stern will be leaving his current radio spot in 2006 for a satellite company, Sirius.  This is good because he won't be censored by the FCC anymore.  So for that, congrats to him.  I don't really like most of his humor personally, but he has his moments, and he's always shaking things up, changing things.  And he'll change things with this move, too.

If you consider satellite radio a different medium from broadcast radio, as I do, then Stern is quite possibly the biggest draw from one medium to another that anyone has seen since the dawn of television.  I really think that his move to Sirius is going to bring in more new subscribers than anyone realizes.  I haven't listened to Stern regularly in a couple of years, but I'm probably going to subscribe to Sirius as a result.  Get just another million people like me, most of whom I'm willing to bet don't have satellite radio either, and you've got the beginning of the end of broadcast radio.  

I could be wrong, maybe people aren't willing to pay for radio, but I get this feeling that, with all the stations that apparently (anyone with satellite radio please confirm or deny for me) available for the amount you pay for it, word of mouth will spread and people will slowly make the switch.

Damn it, we had such a good run going of not talking about Howard Stern.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

As long as Howard Stern can hear himself, he'll never lose his biggest fan.
