So I really tried to give the music channels a chance today and the one thing I can say that I like about what they have done to my now favorite channel, the fromer Big 80s, is to make the playlist more diverse and less repitious. However, what I don't like is the fact that the DJs are now totally talking over the all the songs rather than just talking over a filler track. Also, they don't display their names on the PDTs so they are actually talking over the song so if you want to record it you are going to get a banter up until "the post" (I think that's the term). And I really don't like this new guy in the mornings! Also seems like they are getting rid of one of the best features of the Big 80s, Nina Blackwood doing the countdown. Guess they are going with old Rick Dees tapes? Great....The thing that made Nina's countdown so great is that she would give us a little info on the songs and/or artists including sometimes a "where are they now". Always entertaining. Thanks Sirius for bringing along the XM burden of crap!
