Sirius Radio, the home of shock jock Howard Stern, has decided to take a shot with Don Imus, allowing the beleaguered and recently-fired talk show host a tryout on the satellite station. “Look timing’s everything,” said Stern about Imus’ controversial remarks concerning the Rutgers women’s basketball team. “If he had said those things this Monday, I don’t think anybody would have noticed.”

Sirrius, which is in the process of merging with XM, gave Imus a trial run, and here is the first news broadcast from the New and Improved Don Imus Show.

This just in: 'Tiny Bubbles' Crooner Don “Bleep” has died, Imus said.

“Legendary crooner Don Bleep, who entertained tourists for decades wearing raspberry-tinted sunglasses and singing the catchy signature tune "Tiny Bubbles," has died at the age of 76.

“Bleep” had suffered with heart problems for the past several years, and had a pacemaker installed last fall. In 2005, he underwent an experimental stem cell procedure on his ailing heart in Thailand.

The son of bar owners, “Bleep” broke into the Waikiki entertainment scene in the early 1960s and, except for short periods, never left. Few artists are more associated with one place. "Hawaii is my partner," Bleep told The Associated Press in 2004.

OK? Was that OK? I didn’t say ho. I’m I hired?” concluded Imus.
