I see today that radioclassics is the samed on Sirius and XM finally and they kept Greg Bell. This is great news. Sirius finally might have a radioclassics that keeps a good schedule, and Greg Bell is great!

Indeed, I listened to him for the first time today and you can tell he loves doing Radio Classics. I have already printed a copy of his schedule of shows. It's nice to see he even has the schedule for next week ready to print. To bad those of us with Sirius didn't get to listen to him earlier.:bigthumbup:

I quit listening to Sirius Radio Classics.... Because of their fixed schedule, the programs I liked were never on in the late evening when I usually listened.

This is good news... The merger will provide variety. I might start listening again.

I just checked the Sirius online schedule, and of course, they haven't changed it yet. That's par for the course. I've been a Sirius subscriber for six years and during that time Sirius has continuously provided half-assed support for the RadioClassics channel.

Radioclassics

As a sirius on line listener from overseas I am very sorry that there is now only one radioclassics on both services because they have dropped it from the on line service and of course no mention as to the reason why.I will also miss the sirus radioclassics presenter Dave Wills because he was pretty witty.He once described the theme tune to the "the whistler" as a jingle made in hell,. pretty apt I think. Meanwhile I'm off to find a new otr channel on the internet.
All recommendations greatfully accepted

The sad part is that if you were able to hear XMs version, I think you would have liked it.

Sirius Old Time Radio Schedule

I see that when you go to the Sirius page for Old Time Radio Classics and click on the schedule it now sends you to the XM Classic Radio schedule page!

I suspect there will be more of this. It only makes sense to keep 1 schedule, 1 webpage.

Just found this forum!!

Hello everyone. I am new here, just found this forum today!

Radio Classics is #2 on my presets. I was a Sirius subscriber prior to the merger. I don't mind Greg Bell, but I miss "Dave the Radio Classics Guy." from Sirius.

Also, I don't know if XM ever had him, but Craig Fergusson was a guest host for a weekend on Radio Classics on Sirius. Very funny stuff.

Anyway, just thought I would say "hello"

Hello, and Welcome!...:D

I haven't listened to Radio Classics in years. I used to on XM back in 2002-2004. Something to listen to in between live NASCAR talk shows. I have never listened since I got Sirius...:shock:

Have fun and don't be afraid to let your voice be heard in our community...:)

Sorry, I can't stand the format now. I listen at certain times during the day when I travel or late at night. It just seems I hear the same show over and over and over again. I just can't stand the modern commercials either that were never on the old Sirius show. Having the shows at the same time everyday with different shows made it enjoyable. I could listen to 5 different dates of the same show and when a show was a serial they were played the next day. Now I can't remember what the old show was or it's more possible that I just never heard it because nothing is on at the same time. I basically just stopped listening completely too bad I really enjoyed old time radio.

i still listen even though i'm not a greg bell fan. i enjoy hearing some of the shows that we didn't get as sirius subscribers. i wrote greg about a week ago about a certain show and still haven't heard from him.
