Quentin Tarantino in studio with Opie&Anthony (Audio Interview)

Quentin Tarantino, beyond being an amazing filmmaker, has had a very fascinating life. In a recent interview on the Opie and Anthony show he explained how unlike most directors in Hollywood, who came out of the film school system, the Pulp Fiction director actually quit school in grade nine and got his film education working in a rental store.

For four years straight he watched film after film, all the while learning what makes a great movie. But that’s only the surface level of Tarantino’s history. To go in depth you have to listen to Tarantino’s interview with the great Howard Stern.

O&A sign new two year deal with SiriusXM

Unless you are an active listener to the Opie & Anthony Show you may not be aware that the duo has signed a new two year contract that will keep them broadcasting to SiriusXM subscribers until the fall of 2014. In some way Opie & Anthony define one of the critical aspects of satellite radio and what makes it special. That being uncensored radio. While the show may not be for everyone, we can all appreciate that SiriusXM is a platform where true freedom of speech exists.

Opie & Anthony, like Stern, have had their share of issues with SiriusXM, but in the end a deal was reached and satellite radio consumers can rejoice! Over the past year or so many passionate Stern Fans embrace Opie & Anthony rather than continue a battle of the shock jocks. It almost seems as if some people are beginning to think Stern is winding down and are in search of that cutting edge type of radio show that O&A offer.

Details of the deal have not been released, but it would appear that the offer was sweet enough for O&A to ink the dotted line.

Sirius gets O&A

In a move that surprised even Opie and Anthony themselves, the Opie and Anthony show has crossed over to Sirius Satellite Radio. If you are a Sirius subscriber, you may have noticed that there’s a new show ‘infecting’ your airways.

That’s right “The Virus” the channel that ‘Opie and Anthony’ broadcast on, is available on Sirius channel 197. What does this mean for you? Nothing if you’re an XM subscriber. Two talk radio shows on Sirius; The Howard Stern Show and The Opie and Anthony Show w/ Jim Norton.
