Stern starts on Sirius

Ryan Block

So how did The King of All Media -- now a half billion dollars richer for moving to Sirius -- take advantage of his first day on private-air satellite radio this morning? We didn't listen in ourselves, but apparently Howard's program weighed in 170 some-odd swear words heavy (though few were attributed to Stern himself), a fake-marriange announcement by Stern and the "confession" that he practices transcendental yoga, George Takei now doing voice-overs full time on the program, and a, um, gassy rendition of the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey to lead the intro, among other things. New medium is now the new media, ladies and gentlemen, and according to Stern nearly 2 million new customers lined up service to hear him broadcast from space today.
