yeah and they are losing alot of them since the suspension. i believe the number ,while not staggering overall, was close to 20,000 cancels on the day of suspension. probably double that by now if not more.last i heard it was about a 30 minute wait to get a radio canceled. as i said it isn't a major hit to the sub numbers but it is a substantial money lose to a compnay that can nigh afford it at the moment.

also this suspension,if you listen to the corp heads atleast,was not about the content of the show. it was merely because there was a supposed contract having to do with not talking about the incident on air. when they did so on the free fm portion of the show that is when the suspension was levied. either way you look at it censoring of a show that people pay good money to listen to because it isn't supposed to be censored. that's what the free fm show is for.hence the FREE part.

A portion of their daily show would air on free radio and the rest on XM. Maybe on both for a period of time.

the free fm show (which airs in a lot of other major cities besides philly) is simulcast on the xm side without the dumps from 6 tp 9 am and then they go over to xm and usually do up till 11 am. sometimes the shows runs over though as they can technically go till 12 when ron and fez take over.so they do about 5 hours + of radio on the xm side every day and three on free fm stations. looks like next week they will be extending the free fm show. not sure how long as of yet but i'd say they will probably do four hours a day on free fm for the foreseeable future.
