    I forget the song, but it was on octane, and the DJ came on (A sirius DJ, Kayla I think), and she said: "WOW!!! I love that song!! Now look, I know the merger has been tough and has had many challenges, but look at the bright side, we get to hear way more kick ass songs like this one, that was never played on octance before the merger...."

    I listen to Kayla on ClassicRewind and this sounds like it could be her. She has it in her shtick to talk about the merger and how we are all one happy family etc. My guess is the DJs have been instructed to sell the new channel to the listeners.

    I think this is a good thing as in they are not acting like anything happened. Keep it positive.

    I agree , and I like this direction that the company is going in because I have heard stuff I havent heard for a while or for the first time.

    Yep, heard her say this before too. Only DJ I haven't heard at all since the channel merge is Covino on Octane, not sure if he has said anything.

    Yep, then on Alt Nation we get the craptacular Madison who loves to hear herself talk apparently, and somehow consistently screws up the PAD data after every time she opens her yap. And I JUST LOVE how the DJs talk over the beginning of songs now, heard one that was voice tracked and not only did they manage to leave the song at full volume so you couldn't understand the DJ anyway, they talked a good 10 seconds into the lyrics.

    Slacker and my iPod Touch FTW.

    Geesus christ exaggerate more. There is no way that they talked 10 seconds into the lyrics. They never do. They talk until the lyrics start sure, but geesus is it that big of a deal? Most times songs don't really do much, although some metal songs have a great beginning that I think you should hear. I'm sorry, but Profits of Doom is not one of them, I'd rather they talk during that intro.

    He did mention it at least once...and it was good.

    He commented on the negative emails they had been getting and just flat out said that they are playing alot more great rock...and if you don't like it you need a slap up the side of the head.

    Way to go covino , I just dont get why some people dont like this change because this is what Sirius Music was suppose to be playing the hits along with shit you havent heard in a while or for the first time. I think those people are in a FM centric mindset.

    There are people and XMFAN complaining about channels and how much they suck ... except the channels they are complaining about are XM channels given the Sirius name. They get themselves in that mindset that all change must be bad ....

    And that is true , but those people who are complaining about some of the weirder stuff on these channels like Oasis on Lithium need to maybe open up a little.
