Finished listening to the Gabcast.
Hmm. The fact Noory phoned in - doesn't really impress me.
Consider it very strange timing.
The disingenuous on his part 'No comment' - yet then makes one later.
Never been much interested in the feuding issues of Art vs Noory (Don't know that feud is the right term to use), And clueless as to what the off air stuff that goes on is - What the actual reality is.
Or if it is all just great for PR/Ratings purposes.
Not a Noory fan - whatsoever. He is what he is. Which isn't Art. Once Art left Coast so did I.
That Coast still repeats Arts ol shows says a lot and I can only guess how it makes Art feel.
Sure - Noory may be a 'nice guy' (re podcast call in), but for me it did not reflect well on Noory that he actually thought calling in this week - was APPROPRIATE timing.
He had turned down previous requests for an interview?
Disingenuous with an agenda of his own, or just stupid...What ever motivated the call-in. IMHO reflects poorly on him.
Not to start up a Noory bash - as that does not really interest me - Only joined when this site was once again renamed for Art's program.
just tired of it, whether either of them is oblivious or purposeful in slights - tired of the entire thing. Just want Art back on.
MV - On the podcast you brought up you had posted about the non compete. I had been wondering same thing, and nope, never did see your post on this. Missed it in the 'freak out deluge of postings'. So pasteing it in as I think it is a very valid point. Tho unsure if this is the one you are referring to?
Tho I've now arrived at - what will be will be -- and gettin on with life- and tired of attempting to figure out what is going on:>)
from the Art Bell Quits Dark Matter thread
contracts go both ways. surely sirius/xm is contractually obligated to transmit art's show to listeners, and there is probably legal verbiage about reliability and whatnot. if art can make a case that sirius/xm is in breach of contract in this regard, then he's legally justified in what he's chosen to do. you can not deny there were considerable problems with the stream infrastructure provided by siriusxm.
a guess, but when art mentioned the subscribers who dropped off because of it, he was probably referring largely to those who signed up for the free accounts but did not continue with a full subscription.
