Default New format on Left of Center...

Anyone else notice the new format on left of center? About 50% of their playlist is now deeper tracks from some more popular artists. I personally love it... they are playing blur, fountains of wayne, etc.

HAs anyone else noticed this?

I have not noticed, but I will check it out. I have been waiting for them to do this for a while now.

I've noticed it as well. The best is getting better.

Example, The Essex Green, one of my favorite bands right now, they are playing two tracks off their latest album, This Isn't Farm Life and Snakes In The Grass.

Both great songs.

Thumbs up

Really? Cool. I have drifted from L.O.C. for a while to check out other channels because I grew tired of some of the music, but thanks for telling us, I will try out L.O.C. again. It was in need of minor changes like that, so hopefully it is a good tune up.

Hm, sounds great. I'll have to check it out.

Maybe my hundreds of letters about playing deeper tracks are finally paying off? :P

LOC has gotten loads better over the past few weeks. The playlists have gotten a lot more varied and shows like Blog Radio, Matt Pinfield Plays Whatever He Wants and Zeroes and Ones have done a lot to improve this channel.

One small criticism....too much Arctic Monkey. But definitely an improvement overall.

Today they played a band I had never heard of or heard on LOC, Lambchop. The song was "Paperback Bible".

Needless to say, I am buying that CD today.

The playlist is better than ever.

Kudos to whoever is in charge. Pappy?

The left of center playlist is really better than ever though. I especially like right now Peter Bjorn & John- "Young Folks"

Yeah, I heard that on my way to work the other day, great tune. I installed Sirius into my fiancee's car last weekend and she's been raving about how much she loves LoC.

LOC has definitely improved a lot over the past few months--less repetition of specific songs, more variety of artists. It was a MUCH-needed move, and compared to last year it's VASTLY improved. I hope they keep it up.

I think the way the format is right now is just about perfect. Just the right amount of depth. It's depth that makes sense, not depth just for the sake of "look how deep our playlist is" aka XMU.

I've tried my hardest to like XMU (listen on DirecTV) but I just can't get into it like I do LOC.
