I think we should have a walk the dog Slacker version so people can try out each others custom stations.
That would be cool, but heck we could even do that with the Professionally programmed stations. You could list your fine tune setting and share your thoughts on a given channel. You could even change the fine tuning and see what sort of flavor that adds to the channel. It would be interesting, but can you get a bunch of Slackers to do this? LOL

We've got to come up with a name for it though. Walk the Dog is a Sirius thing?

Any thoughts of a unique name for it?

SlackAbout :scratch:

DRC would like to welcome you to the first SlackAbout.

We will SlackAbout each professional programmed channel and even some created Slacker stations. Please provide us your feedback as you listen from the web player, iPhone/iPod Touch, Blackberry or G1/G2 Portable.

Just giving an example.. Keep some names coming though we'll make a decision.

Also I thought another reason to start this is because alot of people are defecting from Sirius XM , and maybe we should try to introduce them the service.

I agree, I think it a good idea. I think it will spark more interest in folks to listen and check out the service for themselves.

I am excited about it!

Now would be a great time for the car dock to be released. If Slacker made things more plug'n'play I'd bet the XM defectors would come running.

Me too , and with the rates going up for Sirius XM , this could mean big business for Slacker.
Yeah the 3.99 per month or $47.88 per year was a no brainer for Slacker!

Agreed, I am fortunate that the home docks worked in my cars, but I can see that many others would indeed love to have a standard car dock. Docking is so much better than plugging and unplugging.

Hey guys I moved this thread out of the share your Slacker Stations Thread, so we can keep that thread on Topic. We can continue this discussion here.

So how do we want to do this , do we want to spotlight custom stations that we have made or that we have listened to on the forums on slacker.com or mix it up with programmed and custom.

Well they have over 100 professionally programmed channels, then we have the customized Slacker subscribers stations.

Maybe we could Spotlight one customized channel and one or two professionally programmed channels.

Hey that is a pretty good name too. Slacker Spotlight! LOL

We could give some of these customized stations the spotlight for a week. That should be fun. I am open to suggestion on how to do it.

...well over on the "official" Slacker forums it seems to be "Slacker flack." I know that we have all had some problems getting our G1's and G2's settled in, but for me it's all in the learning curve and with the service taking off, I am one happy camper.

Put me down for Slacker Shack

I guess we need to decide on the name.

I don't care for Slack Shack that sounds like a store name. Sorry Hank :)

I like Slacker Spotlight and give it a thumbs up! I think it just fits what we'll be doing in terms of the professional and custom stations.

MM suggested DRC Slacker Spotlight in private.
