Post Jam_On Playlist Length?

I got my Starmate Player a week ago, through a great deal at Radio Shack. I have been paying for Sirius for about 6 weeks, but I couldn't get the Panasonic SRT100 to work (and I tried another one too). I had been listening on line a bit, but I now have Sirius in the car, where God wanted it to be.

So anyway, I have been mostly listening to Howard in the morning, and Jam_On 17 at night, plus some of each and Classic Vinyl at work. In the last 5days, at no more than 2 hrs a day, so about 12 hours total, I have heard at least 3 songs more than twice. I just decided to write this after hearing Neil Young, Down by the River a third time. I have also heard Phil Lesh and Friends' version of Scarlet Begonia 3 times. There is are several tunes I can't recall that I have heard at least twice in those 12 hours.

I was hoping to learn more Jam bands, and I have. I now like Gov't Mule thanks to the live session this week. I also am starting to learn more Phish tunes, which I hadn't been exposed to on "terrestrial radio". However, I am disturbed by the number of times the same song gets replayed. Is this a TOP 40 of Jam Bands station? Top 100? What is the size of the list that gets regular air play?

Post Welcome to Sirius...

Just like the terrestrial radio you know and love, but no commercials!

Brad is among a small minority of subscribers on this forum who are not thrilled with monotonous playlists.

Before the regular contributors weigh in and blast this thread, let me assure them that, yes, Sirius music programming beats terrestrial radio by far, but some of us were hoping for more imaginitive programming.

Yeah Brad, I never heard Phish until I got Sirius a year ago. Now I'm sick of 'em.

It seems that with Jam On, they have a lot of music by several artists and very little by a lot of artists. So someone like Neil you hear a few tunes in a heavy rotation. Someone like Phish, you hear a lot of different Phish cuts but you hear Phish very often. Every hour you can expect to hear some variation of the Dead, either GD or JG or Phil's or Bob's bands. It seems like everytime I switch to Jam On, String Cheese Incident is playing at that moment.

I'd like to hear more jams, not just jam bands.

I have a hard time understanding threads like this cause there are two services and one (siri) has tighter playlists and the other (xmsr) has looser playlists.

if you have xmsr and you want tighter playlists, get siri. if you have siri and want looser playlists, get xmsr.

it doesnt seem like a difficult problem to me unless the music is less important than stern or mlb or whatever.

so if there is one or two stations on sirius that a person has less than favorable opinions of they should just switch to XM?
thats ludicrous
