I am SO disappointed with my XM because all of the channels I want to hear are slammed with DJ's and promos for XM@!
I didn't subscribe to "XM commercial free radio" to hear that old has-been Wolfman Jack, Motormouth or *any* other DJ.
And it's not just on the rock n' roll stations... even the classical channels have their DJ's with: 'that was bla-bla-bla and so who recorded this in 1966 and bla-bla-bla'... Next (yawn) we are going to hear bla-bla-bla/// gimmie a break!
Also, many many times in any given hour I am told I am listening to "The Sixties on XM RADIO" and there is NO reason XM needs to do that because they have their own satellites and the FCC knows who and where they are! If it is a issue of the FCC requiring XM to provide station identification ~ do it on the DISPLAY!
Trust me, I will not renew my XM subscription.
I was looking forward to switching to Sirius at the end of my year subscription, but thanks to these forums, I've learned that Sirius also has way too much verbiage.It's interesting that Sirius provides many truly "commercial and verbal free" channels on my girlfriends cable channels? NO words at all ~ Yesssss.
Now where can I find those channels without subscribing to cable?
Anyone considering XM should be ready for talking and DJ's on all of the best channels.
A final comment to XM: BOOOOOOOO!
