    I am at my last straw with this company. They see!m to think we want to hear douchebags on music stations. They finally ruined Lithium and I am dun with them. I need an alternative of all music with no commercials or douchebags to listen in ho!e and in car. I do not want CDs or mp3 answers.

    Madison works on every channel, at least 12 hours per day.

    Mark Goodman likes to remind listeners every 20 seconds or so that he used to work on MTV.

    The reason satellite was awesome was no bullshit commercials and it's hard wired into your car. They are now transforming into a pay traditional radio service.

    Use Tune in, pandora, spotify....you can make your own playlists and the commercials are minimal.

    They 'evolved' @ Former King of All Media, Now Part-Time Plug-Master

    I presume that some exec is paranoid that the stations are not compelling if its just non-stop music.

    I've got 12 year old twins that cringe every time Madison starts talking... And they, too, don't understand why she's everywhere.. Awful.

    It has become full terrestrial radio minus the ads on the music channels. Playlists that rotate the same 15 songs no matter the channel and talent that is rather talentless.

    I use an iPad, Sirius app, and AppleTV to pipe the music to my receiver/speakers on my deck.

    One afternoon I tried Apple Radio and had to change back to Sirius because they chimed in every 4-5 tracks w/a commercial.

    I enjoy listening to the really good jocks. Dan Neer and a couple of the guys on Deep Tracks are excellent and great concise story tellers. On a format like that, it helps to have someone give a little insight to the music.

    In the case of some of the more mainstream channels, no thanks. The Boneyard guys like Luc Carl are just bad parodies of in your face rock jocks. Madison might be the worst I've ever heard...she is simply a train wreck with a microphone. Richard Blade on First Wave needs to go away, too. I will give Mark Goodman a pass. He actually has something to say about the artists and music he plays.

    Underground garage has one douche bag dj that talks in a whisper. He goes on and on about nothing for what seems like days. I don't fucking care what tee shirt you were wearing when this song came out in 1967 asshole.

    Oh and cousin Bruce is the worst on the 60s channel. My dog almost committed suicide after 10 minutes of that shit.

    When I dumped Sirius at the end of Howie's first contract, the music stations were pretty much just music. I was driving my dad's car recently and he has an XM radio (now Sirius-XM), and I was surprised how every music channel seemed to have chatter. I can understand the 50s channel with Cousin Brucie, because people like to hear Brucie, but do I need some loser talking to me on Classic Vinyl?

    You don't like Matt Pinfield? He has some great stories, and he was one of the great DJs of the seminal FM 106.3 Modern Rock and the Jersey Shore. His U2 shits and giggles story is hilarious:

    I listen to 53, 68, 66, and 67 and yes a douchebag on 67 some of the time, but no douchebags or commercials on these other channels.

    that platform is not just yesterday's news, it's 3 weeks ago's news. You know, kind of like Robin's news.
