I just saw on XM fan where someone said that the 80s on 8 playlist has been cut by more than half recently, from about 1,000 songs at the time of the merger to around 400now. Any idea why they are doing this? As a passionate fan of 80s music, the smaller selection of songs now is truly a disappointment. In a way, I feel teased. We had the biggr playlist, and then it was taken away again! Are some of you actually in favor of this more shallow playlist? Who makes these decisions? I want to send a constructive e-mail that trimming playlists is not what most subscribers likely want. It isn't Rick Stacey- even though he's the PD of the 80s on 8, I've heard that he has nothing to do with the playlists and song selections.
