Well, there IS all that isn't there? Fact is, my 'devil's advocate' statement earlier ISN'T the only two cents I could put in on all this. Everything you've said here in response makes more than a good argument for not jumping head-first into the protest, especially absent a profuse apology for his abrupt departure from the show and Facebook.Fan wrote: I hope he continues on and does something. However, he dealt with the devil and now he needs to acknowledge that and face it like a man. The first thing he should be doing (should have done) is apologize profusely to his listeners. He never did this as far as I know. He just cut us off with no warning or reason. Deleted his facebook, which has nothing to do with Sirius, only his fans were hurt by that.
Indeed, any painting of SiruisXM as the villain in all of this IS a gross oversimplification. Like any corporation no doubt they're capable of deviltry - yet aside of putting C2C on in place of Dark Matter, what do we know they've done that's been particulary devilish?
I too had said I thot that'd be the best route for Art. In my mind he coulda done the online stream, and mebbe made a deal to simulcast from KNYE for a presence in the 'old world' of radio, as time went on possibly broadening it by way of building an independent network of affiliates.Fan wrote: I have no sympathy because I and many others were saying the whole time he needed to do this on his own in a podcast or free stream model, and he went corporate instead.
I'm all for Art doing something still. Being out from under his NC clause would make that easier - At the same time, having sympathy for his personal plight isn't high on my list.
