Sounds: Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews songs, interviews with the band

Positives: A place to hear the entire DMB/DM collection in both studio and live capacities, including cuts from their latest CD. Insight and analysis from DMB on the new CD and each other

Negatives: The repetition of songs, channel sweepers, and interview segments is annoying

Blastability: Medium to high. Feel good songs.

Overall: This station is the only one I intended to keep on my radio this week. I'm a casual Dave Matthews listener and was looking forward to broadening my horizons. The positives were immediately noticeable and I enjoyed my experience on days 1 and 2. However day 3 brought moans of "okay, i already heard this channel ID and interview segment the last 2 days." Day 4 brought groans of "didn't i already hear this song like an hour ago?" I think that could be a real problem for people who are big Dave Matthews fans

I turned it on once and heard "Ants Marching". :rolleyes:
That was enough for me. That song has already been beat to death on FM radio.
So much for hearing something new and interesting...

I haven't listened enough to comment on whether or not they're keeping the playlist big or small... never really been a fan of The Dave Matthews Band. Sorry. :right:

I only have two Dave Matthews Band CD and they are from the mid '90s :right:

I liked listening for a little while. They played a lot of DMB that I've never heard, which is cool. Although I'm not a big DMB fan, It was nice to have them around for a week :)

3 out of 5 Stars :cool:

I really enjoyed the DMB channel for the past week. I played it for several hours each day. I especially liked the concert replays. But I think the 7 day limit made it really worth listening to.

Can you really like a guy that's songs have been beat to death on radio? Can't say I care about the guy either way, but I do like the length of the channel :bigthumbup:
