XM Satellite Radio Complaint - Quality Decline Since Merger
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA -- I may be a grumpy old guy, but I used to love XM radio's 50's on 5 station. It played not only the early years of rock and roll golden oldies, but also played many pop songs from throughout the decade. 50s on 5 also had excellent programs like Harlem (rithym and blues from the 50s), tghe Strip (Las Vegas perfromers from the 50s), and allways included an excellent variety of 50s music -- not just the golden oldies.
Now after the merger, the Sirrius format seems to have been adopted for the 50s on 5 station. Former XM DJs like Matt the Cat were fired, and replaced by (ugh) Cousin Brucie.
I think the difference between the old XM 50s on 5 progamming and the post-merger programming is like music vs muzak. I feel like I've lost access to my favorite ever radio station.
Has anyone else noticed the decline in quaity since the merger?
