The Music of Rushbo's Silence

The entire first hour of his program? Nothing but dead air. And that silence is GOLDEN. Probably the best hour his radio show ever had.

Why couldn't they just play PSAs or a radio promo? Its not that hard and people usually don't notice the overuse of promos. Silence, however, is beyond conspicuous.

Accorting to the stories most of the adds they played through out the day were PSA's.

It was actually only a minute and three seconds of dead air. Which is actually even more delicious - Rush missing from the air for an hour is a technical mistake, an ad break without any ads means there wasn't anyone paying to fill it.

"What is the music of life?"
"Silence, my brother."
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

This is all we've ever asked of him.

My agency just announced (internally) that his show has been blacklisted.  Which means that we will not purchase any airtime for his show for any client unless a client threatens to leave over the move (and if they do, then we go into negotiations with the client over it).

"What is the music of life?"
"Silence, my brother."

That sounds like quotes from the Dark Brotherhood.  Have you been playing Skyrim, Mad?

According to this, the fallout has increased to other shows. Now, it makes me wonder if Rush is gonna have to rein it in, or if he'll find the issue forced for him.

Yes, quite alot actually. That quote was the first thing to come to mind when I saw the thread title. Also, I have a papercraft Dragon Priest Mask(though it's still a work in progress).
