Jeff,

We have. But nothing has changed since despite the
fact we all thought changes were coming.

I'm not talking about the changes, but that 'dead horse' stab. Go back and read my reply in the Dogstar Cafe. :\

As for the 70s, I know everyone wants its back NOW. But that's not going to happen. I say give them 2-3 weeks.

Things are changing as far as I can tell. What isn't known is how far they will change. Certainly they haven't changed as far as you would have them.

You were reassuring us before that things would change, but now you are doubting it. What happened?

Apparently thought it would happen within a day or two. LORD knows SIRIUS never makes changes that quickly. I've heard some changes, but they will be filtered in over time as this is the way SIRIUS always does it. The Trend is a perfect example of how long it takes them sometimes to get it right.

A day or two no.

A difference in one week? Bare minimal.

I was assured changes are on the way, but even at this pace I have yet
to hear any of the artists I mentioned above and the same songs are being played over and over again.

Look, I'm willing to wait it out a little longer.

I've listened 5+ hours over the past two days and have heard not just a few, but many of those songs. Disco, Motown, Blues, Pop...just about every style.

Just heard the SJ give out his direct email address for "Feedback and Programming Suggestions"

Never heard this before. Maybe the SJ is also doing the programming on this stream.

Unfortunately I didn't hear the whole email address, but I suspect you could go through the web page and still get it forwarded.

I heard this yesterday as well. They do want to make right on the situation.

Was it Don Tandler?

Patience.

Sirius generally morphs. They do NOT make drastic changes overnight, except when wholesale stream changes are involved.

Patience!

Yes, SJ, Don Tandler wants emails.... he will pass them to the forces that be, so that the listeners can be heard..... he knows the situation and we can help fix the 70s stream, but again its the squeeky wheel that gets the grease....you have to email and make suggestions/complain or whatever to expect problems to be solved. As Jeff says, it doesnt happen overnight here. Just the fact that there are changes, slowly taking place, means they are listening and want more input....email your requests, songs that you dont hear, suggestions and the like... it can happen, but you have to be a part of it.
