XM Radio Informative - Too much talking by DJs
XM Radio. My favorite stations are the 50s, 60s, and 70s. There was way too much talking by the DJs, such as Cousin Brucie (evenings) and the morning guy. I called XM on numerous occasions, sent certified letters to the president of the company and a couple of board members, and made online complaints. I even called several times, but the customer service reps said they could not do anything.
No one ever responded to the complaints. I pay for XM for the music, not to hear "has been DJs" talk about insignificant events (insignificant because most of the nation doesn't really care about the happenings in Smalltown USA), but to actually listen to the music I like. These DJs carry on for several minutes at a time on a regular basis. Most of their "callers" are little children.
This is my opinion, but it seems odd that these DJs spend so much time with little children. How many children really like oldies? While I do not have any evidence to suggest any inappropriate actions of the DJs with children, I am concerned.
There is an alternative called "Slacker Radio". I have an iphone, but I am concerned about "data charges". An AT & T lady told me that Slacker does use data when not using WiFi, but a Slacker review said that it does not. They do offer a radio for purchase, and that undoubtedly would not incur data charges. I think I am going to give it a try.
I will gladly pay to listen to my favorite music. I will not, however, pay to listen to DJs talk for than a few seconds at a time.
