Hey, that would be nice to hear on the 70's channel I think I heard them play that on Labor Day weekend.

That would constitute freedom without the requisite responsibility. Almost as bad as mandatory freedom imposed upon you by cracker armies.

Octane is not Modern Rock any more. It is Active Rock. Like XM 48.

Nobody I know whould ever segue PP&M and Sabbath (except maybe ''Planet Caravan'' and then only while on LSD.)

Speaking of which, Sirius music people should be required to trip and listen at least 8 hours a week. Not these wimpy-ass ''rave'' doses either; 200 mcg minimum. Then we'll get some coherent music mixes.

And if Sirius truly allowed and played listener requests, many streams would sound like that. Though I, like many of you, at first think that would be an improvement, as I look back I know better.

Ooook, this thread hit a new low... tripping?

I think the point of this is, when there is a thread dedicated to that music, why add it to another stream. I mean it's great that some of you are getting to that kind of music, but that's why there are other streams, so you can hear that music, on those channels. There is a decade of modern rock out there, and yet they can't find enough to fill playlists. How bad would it be if you heard Nine Inch Nails on The Rock after Freebird, all because "It's roots are in The Rock's music." It would make no sense, and it doesn't make sense in the vice versa situation either. Octane is modern rock, KROQ plays modern rock all day long and has no problems filling playlists. It can be done, just you have to be willing to work at it, and willing to dig a little deeper into the music to program a good, commercial free stream.

Why add it to another stream?

Because, to quote Sirius's own manifesto, Music Doesn't Like to Be Categorized.

Next?

There are songs that belong on more than one stream.

There are songs that should be on the air that aren't being played at all while other songs get played 5 or 6 times a day.

Tripping is good for you.

A) We're back to the fact that the manifesto was an AD CAMPAIGN, not the new testament.

B) It's one thing to say it shouldn't be categorized, (Yet another AD CAMPAIGN), but to play 70's metal, on the Modern Rock stream is taking that a bit too far, when there is a stream for old rock. Music shouldn't be categorized is a polite way of reminding you "If the streams change, tough shit", you can't ask music if it likes to be categorized, it may love being categorized, why do they say this then, because it's an AD. Do we play Bluegrass on US-1? Dixie Chicks on street beat? Then why play The Rock on Octane?

Sub, it's time to ditch the dog. These jokers haven't done a thing right from day one.

Remember how cool and how inspirational its 'manifesto' was? That lasted a good week!! And now there are people actually defending Sirius for not carrying out its manifesto. Even their station promos are lies. "New rock, less repition" my ass!! No company that does not deliver where it promises deserves any defense.

Sirius has truly whithered into the realm of lameness.

You are so full of crap. While there have been enough mistakes to go around, not even YOU can say they have not done anything right. You are just bitter and pissed because one freaking stream isn't what YOU think it should be. If it truly time to move on, then why don't you and then the rest of us won't have to read your repeated dribble everyday. Talk about repeats. Your post are all the same and it just keeps coming over and over and over, which in and of itself has become quite lame.

I doubt that there are many that listen to SIRIUS as much as I do, but then I don't listen to one freaking stream 24/7 either. If you would put nearly as much effort into changing things as you have bitching about them, no telling what changes would happen. It is true though, some people like to bitch and that is the realm in which you are now.

Hallelujah and Amen.

I wasn't going to respond, but I keep thinking of new people seeing this stuff...

It's truly pathetic how loyal some of you are and how much in denial one can get.

Sirius's in-house programming is in a total state of chaos. They don't know what to do one minute to the next so the in-way-over-their-heads suits are falling back to their crappy commercial broadcasting roots and turning Sirius into just another cluster of "X-this", and "That-Q".

This won't work. The people that listen to that crap will not pay money to hear it from Sirius. Sure, some kid in a swamp who grew up listening to nothing but preachers and hillbilly music might find it fresh and new, but us city folk know better.

Whole the manifesto may have been overly-ambitious, at least it showed some vision and a coherent direction. Vastly preferable to what's happening now.

OK. Let me have it...

I have no intention of letting you have it. Much of what you have to say is right. It's just the tone.

If you really are THAT exasperated, why in thunder do you stay with these people?

I'm curious.

Do you have hope?

I have money invested in stock and in equipment, based on a very promising business plan that has now been ditched, out of sheer little girl shrieking panic, and replaced by failed philosphies from a dying segment of the medium.

While you may be an easy quitter, I am not.

If my tone comes across as angy, good. That is entirely my intended tone.

Until the company gets some telephones and some email input, I shall continue to show anger every place I can think of where those weasels (or those that influence said weasels) may be lurking.

Thanks for understanding.

(BTW: No one is holding a Ultra Carry .45 ACP to your head and forcing you to read my posts, either.)

I aint puttin my dog up for adoption. As a matter of fact, I just got a friend of mine to get sirius, and it looks like I'm going to get another couple of em to get it too (See the thread about WMRQ chaning formats). Octane still is a GREAT stream, just they play 2-3 songs an hour that just don't belong. 2-3 songs can be fixed, easily, I just honestly believe we have to work with Sirius, and let them know that this kind of stuff doesn't belong, regardless of if it's Octane or not. When Octane gets all alzhimers on me, I just pop it over to Diesel (AltNation ), and check that out for a few songs, and when they play something I don't like, back to Octane I go. It's a small problem, but it's a problem, and I have a dream, a vision, that together, it can be fixed.
