Just tuned over to Stern and he's pushing his new medium. In typical
Stern style, he predicted that sat radio will blow up FM in five years.
He likens his planned move (as are some columnists) to Uncle Milty
moving to television from radio. Early challenges, he cites, are
detractors concern that Stern, unlike Opie & Anthony, will not cost
extra for that channel, essentially being equally accessible to kids as
the kid channels, etc. The "subscriber" defense seems solid enough to
quell that, IMO.
