Maybe so but you have a rotation like this for Hound Dog....not good for a catalog of 800 songs.

Actually, thats not bad. Hound Dog, being one of Elvis's biggest and most popular hits (selling over 12 million as a single alone), should be heard about that often. Who comes to Elvis Radio? Elvis fans- who want to hear the biggest hits more often. With more than 140 charted hits, you are going to hear those more often than his lp cuts, covers, sound track offerings and such. The big, top 10 hits are going to be repeated, people expect it. If you had a policy of no repeats until the entire playlist was gone thru, you could wait days to hear the monster hits. Thus, the way the people who run All Elvis radio 13 have it, they do repeat alot of the most popular huge hits in a day. Someone might turn on All Elvis and say , where is Hound Dog? They wouldnt want to wait a few days to hear it. His lesser hits/cuts are not repeated so often. I like the mix and policy of the channel- Im an Elvis fan, its what I expect.
Something is is SIRIUSLY off the hook

Left of Center needs the most tweaking, Alt Nation's not something I listen to anyway. It could go away, wouldn't move me either way. Since left of center plays mostly new stuff, why not a 'college rock classics' stream (Ironic since I've been on an anti-classic rock bent lately ). At least play more Replacements on one of the rock streams.
