Could somebody be perched up at the Griffith Observatory, rebroadcasting Howard Stern's Sirius show over the broadcast airwaves?

Today the LA Times reports that Howard Stern fans have been spreading Stern's word illegally, recording the show and redistributing it over the internet. As soon as the lawyers shut down one site, another pops up. It poses a problem for Stern, who sympathizes with the rebellious spirit but also wants the company that pays him to remain solvent. But the LA Times may have missed one local angle.

LAist hears that an LA-based Stern pirate may have taken things to the next level. Howard's been heard over the airwaves at the left end of the radio dial by eastsiders. Exactly where, we're not saying. We don't want to make anyone walk the plank.

If you want your Howard, try listening in on your next trip to the Vista Theater. Which hopefully, come July, will be screening Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Ahoy, pirates!
