Amen to that ! I miss Tammy Bruce. She tells it like it is ! She is part of the pro-death pro-choice crowd but I think she will come around. Ever heard of Dennis Prager ? I wish Sirius would pick him up.
Is anyone else tired of Mike Reagan ? I don't dislike him at all but I think we need more variety.

I think Sirius should itself with becoming more balanced and not with adding another rightleaning option. As a leftist I have one option on Sirius, and Schultz, Miller are on a lot of AAR outlets. An option for leftists before another option for rightwingers.

I miss having Sirius right, not because there were other right wing channels and I want more. Thats just childish. I liked the lineup and it fit my schedule. Patriot is boring, and FOX is just repeats of everything else thats out there.

As for the pissing and moaning of what is fair.... I don't care if there are 50 leftist channels if they have ONE good right channel that doesn't make me want to smash into the nearest culvert at 100 mph.

they destoryed the Right Wing Talk Channels,

Fox News Talk, Sucks, there is no 2 ways about it. Talk Right was 100000000000000000000% better. They only picked it up so they could carry the Fox News Channel as well. Why in the hell do we need Fox news, and Fox news Talk, which has the more or less the same worhtless figure heads????

Plus they screwed up Patriot by removing all by 2 of the good Shows, Mike Regan, and NRA News, and they moved NRA News to a TERRIBLE time slot.

I dont even listen to the talk radio anymore. I am pretty close to cancelling all my Subs. Every time they make a change to the programming it gets worse, and worse...

Bring Back, Laura, Tammy, Jerry Doyle, and the others they removed.

Get rid of the Worthless figure heads of G Gordon Liddy, Mike Church, Bill Bennent, Andrew Wilkow and everyone on Fox News Talk

Hey now. Mike Church is the only one I think is still worth lisening too. I can't stand Mike Reagan. But to each his own. I used to listen to a little talk, now I don't bother. I listen to mostly BBC and NPR and the channel that runs international segments all day. Other than that it's music 24/7.

I like Liddy, he's a blowhard, but entertaining, and sometimes very informed.

I drive a truck, so I have the radio on 16 hours a day. I often plan my working hours around programs I like to listen to.
I don't listen to much/any music.
I enjoy various talk/news programs.
I really get pissed when Sirius screws with the schedule. I have less programs now that I enjoy listening to than ever before.
Thank you, Sirius! I am a consumer, and will move on when my subscription is up, or my rcvr dies!!
I may try XM again, but they do the same thing. (change programming every few months)

Guess what? I can LIVE without satellite radio!!
It's only an asset when I can listen to things I enjoy. with some predictability.

I don't appreciate the SPORTS crap on the talk channels!!
Don't you have enough sports channels?
Why do you have to broadcast games on talk channels??
That ruins my damn day, and I look at the sirius radio on my dash with disgust every time it happens!

I don't care if the talk programs are offered on normal radio! I drive all over the US, and the beauty of satellite radio is I can listen to the programs I like, every day, and not hunt/hope I can find them.

You've deleted many of the programs I listened to.
Larry Elder is OK, and one of the few programs I can listen to, and they you disrupt it for game broadcasts?

I'd like to see Tammy Bruce back, as well as Bruce Williams, what about 'the Black Avenger'?

Wilkow I can live without.

Hannity, also.

I won't listen to Howard Stern. I have an IQ over 30. I could care less about MArtha Stewart, or Nascar. I see where my subscription dollars are really going! They sure don't provide much content I enjoy any more!

The music channels are limited, also. If you are a commuter, you may not notice the limited playlist. If you spend more time listening to Sirius, you will. I'm talking every music channel I listen to, 5-6.


I usually pay by the year. I may try an xm radio next. I had an XM before sirius.
I am stuck driving a tractor trailer for a living. I NEED decent radio!
I don't care if it's Sirius, XM, normal radio, or hell, I even had a shortwave broadcast rcvr in the truck before. I will listen to something.

I think you've hit on something that is very important. To interrupt the daily talk shows for sports programming is a very poor idea. I've had that happen too--they pre-empt for NHL or NBA. See how long that would last if they disrupted the music programming. There would be screaming. XM does not interrupt programming for this.

Ditto on this. As a person who can definitively say I have an IQ over 30 (actually over 150 - measured) and a Stern fan for almost 20 years, I could say maybe those with less of an IQ than moi have a hard time seeing his genius; but that would be extremely conceited - So I won't.

I agree with this part. It is just just radio, but TV to.

Pro Sports are boring today anyway, just a bunch over overpaid clowns that think WAY too much of themselves
