    if you listen to the Classic Rock channels the dj's interupt more and more with concert schedules, talk about books and other media coming out by classic rock artists etc..... These breaks are lasting longer and longer, no way Sirius is not being paid to promote this shit.

    I've never heard a single commercial on sirius. It's like one long stream of consciousness in which people fall in love, break up, have sex and die.

    I hear satellite radio was popular back in the good old days of the 2000's. Didn't realize it was still around now that people can stream pretty much anything they fucking want for free and without commercials through their phone.

    I'm too disinterested to look it up, but I recall an interview years ago with Mel Karmazan where he strongly implied that channels of "commercial free music" were probably not going to last that way for very long.

    Why does Sirius even bother having DJ's on the music stations? This is what they got rid of 101 for?

    Why do you even pay for Sirius? Just listen to music on YouTube like normal people do.

    I really enjoy the Stern-free Sirius commercials that are running constantly now.

    The constant self promotion is pissing me off. I know what I'm listening to. I know what I want to listen to. Stop pushing your shit on me.

    At least we don't have to listen to Nina Blackwood's La Brea tar pit lung gurgle since they put that inhale mute on her mic.

    That's why a lot of people I know dumped Sirius YEARS ago. I'm the only one stupid enough to keep paying for the shit.
