Skip to comments.Why has "The Savage Nation" been removed from XM Radio?
Posted on 03/11/2005 7:15:23 PM PST by Echo Talon
I just got my XM Radio hooked back up and was wondering why Michael Savage's "Savage Nation" has been removed from the lineup? I don't listen to his show often just every once in awhile.. If anyone knows whats going on let me know. Thanks
I heard a message on Channel 166 that sounded like it was Michael Savage's doing, but I only caught the tail end of the message
I love XM radio and America Right, I just wish Rush Limbaugh would sign on to XM. I have three XM Radio's, one of which is the new XM ToGo and I love it
XM is cool. I'd never buy another vehicle without it.
I'd bet it's because he's NUTS ---- and his insane rantings have grown weary!
But that's just my guess.
I really like the Delphi ToGo model, it works very good as a portable
The announcement that I heard, said to contact Michael Savage, and it sounded like it wasn't their decision. I just checked XM's website and there is no information about his departure
That is very possible! :D Sometimes I get in the mood for a good rant though... :)
Yes! I heard part of this anouncement and really didnt understand it... Was just wondering if anyone had the dirt on what happened.
He's off the website. It looks like Rusty Humphries was on at 5pm (ET) and Michael Reagan was on at 10 pm. I guess Savage was in-between. Now Reagan is on at 6 and Rusty is on at 9.
i guess because he is possibley the most self centered egotistical dolt to ever express an opinion over the air waves and via publication.
he truley believes he invented the u.s. savings (war bond)
idea and wonders why he is the only one to ever "understand "
his self serving rantings.
WHAT A DOLT! and i have never ever heard anyone so in love with himself in my entire life, he almost begs his loyal listeners to continue throwing rose petals at him over the air waves. i gave his show 2 months and couldn't take it anymore.
thanks, yes I know... Michael used to upset me on a regular basis and was seriously questioning his sanity. I only listen to his show maybe 1-2 times a month just to see what hes talking about. I just thought it was weird that the message said something about Michael asked to be removed from the lineup... That sounded very strange! Don't radio personalities want to reach as many people as possible? Maybe it was a dispute over money? I just don't get it.
I don't listen to Savage at all. This is a weird time for him to do this because he's hawking a book right now. He's weird and emotional but his business decisions aren't stupid.
On his show the other day a caller mention something about this to him and he went wild talking about calling his lawyers. From what I got out of it MS didn't even know he was being aired on XM? Maybe he had it pulled because it was pirated?
Ditto, ditto, ditto.... what you said...
like everything else in life
1, everything in moderation
2, theres no telling for taste.
3, kerry still sucks.
M.S's show is on here in st. louis from 9pm to 12 midnight
so since i work till 1:30am i really did give his show a good try. i agree he really can work himself into a frothing rant at the drop of a hat.
have a good night.
Some of us live for the frothing rants, though. It's all a matter of taste. Some people like the PC type hosts or the ones that tow party lines because they've been so accustomed to that by society. They begin to feel uncomfortable with Savage when he goes off about something.
I, personally, listen to Savage only because I feel he's the only one on talk radio that says what he feels and tells it like it is.
It's all dependent on what you like. I enjoy the fast pace, the rants and the topics he covers. And, believe me, I'm the only one in all of Ireland who listens to him, probably.
maybe because he sucks.
OK... now I get it, Savage is cutting his own throat to make a point. What a Weirdo...
Cool! You live in Ireland? Wow! that would be a great vacation spot! Looks like a beautiful country!
I love Savage. I discovered him after having gotten my XM radio as a gift. Living in Iowa, I NEVER would have heard him without XM.
I'm highly disappointed that he chose to make a statement by taking himself off of XM. So what if he prefers terrestrial radio? It's an EXTREMELY poor business decision to think that this technology will go away. I wonder how many other XM radio listeners he picked up that normally wouldn't have heard him?
I am fine with listening to Michael Reagan or even Bruce Williams (ASK) or Larry Elder.
Sorry, but I'll just stick with good ole Rush Limbaugh for the time being whenever I need to listen to a little talk radio. I usually agree with Rush, and he's got those legendary showman skills to boot, still using that legendary brew of intelligent conservative discussion and side-splitting, sarcastic humor that made him the champion of his field in the first place.
Savage is deranged, and his militant "borders, language, culture" screeds tend to put me into a boiling rage as well... against him.
Indeed, it is! You'll never want to go home though! The west coast of Ireland is the most beautiful, in case you consider a trip.
Fascinating. That is consistent with his support of John McCain's anti-free speech campaign law.
We'll, I think there has to be a limit. A guy like Howard Stern, who makes a living at the expense of handicapped people, is capable of anything. He'll just keep pushing the envelope into complete perversion.
Radio is like the last good thing we've got. You turn on the TV or watch a movie and it's all violence, perversion, sex, drugs etc. Can't we have one medium that's clean?
That didn't work. Well it's www.910knew.com/listenlive.html
I usually record it because and put it on my iPod for the next day because it's 11pm here when it starts. (Don't tell Savage as he might sue me)
I have heard that rumor too. It's really hard to believe it could be true, but OTOH, I've heard it more than once.
Funny enough, I listen to Howard Stern, have done so for a long time. Also a long time listener of Rush. I like both of them because they tell it like it is. And if you listened to Howard Stern, he hardly is making fun of retarded people at their expense. Many of these people, who would have been in circus sideshows in another day, have become rich and famous thanks to Howard. He has done wonders for stutterers by giving one a big job on the show. Now you probably find his humor offensive. So do I, sometimes and I turn it off. But he ain't afraid to be politically incorrect. The worse our society gets in terms of PC, the more material Howard and Rush have to work with. For those of us stuck in American today, we need the release valves that these entertainers offer.
We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.
I'm not buying his book. I had planned on it, but no longer, I can no lnger listen, so what's the point. He lost me, and I still think he has the best show on radio. Sure, I disagree with half of what he says, but he doesn't sound like a broken record like Rush and Hannity are starting too. Savage is such a lunatic he debates himself. I'm going to miss him, but he dumped me, is the way I look at it. I just hope Medved doesn't follow suit and dump sattelite, I understand he's with the same company.
People called our founding Fathers Nuts too and if that's what it means to be nuts.
I'm a nut
You also that guy?
Deranged is exactly right. I can't stand to listent to that screeching nutjob.
I've had the last straw with this guy.
The other day, he was ranting on his SUPPORT for a minimum wage. Then a day later he took calls from people bashing Rush Limbaugh.
Michael Savage is a depressing POS.
Tune in to www.krla870.org
er.. I mean www.krla870.com doh!
Michael Savage is discussing the Terri Shiavo case now. He has suggested indicting Michael Shiavo based testimony from the nurse. He compares the killing of Terri to the the crucifixion of Jesus. He is now talking with the nurse.
Savage Nation started out live today, then went to a 'best of' package. I hope he is ok.
