Like a scene from a contemporary Atlas Shrugged, Howard Stern abandoned the public airwaves today to join the folks over in Galt’s Gulch. With his new gig in Sirius Satellite Radio
land space, Stern will finally have the right to ask, “Who the fuck is John Galt?”
At the time of this posting, Stern’s website reads:
The revolution begins in 0 months 14 days 9 hours 41 minutes and 16 seconds
no more FCC, no more boss, no more interference… We’re going to the promised land!
Media headlines on Stern’s final day of traditional radio are almost as interesting. Here’s a sampling:
Howard Stern’s brave new world
Radio rivals happy to see Stern sign off
(Stern is German for star)
Visionary Stern off to shock new world
Stern Plans Shocking New Show (this one came as a big surprise for me)
A Studio for the Coolest Guy in the Room
I’ll be expecting reports of a topless Dagny Taggart squirming on Howie’s lap in a couple of weeks.
