Faction's awesome! The shows are so cool. Underground Garage just sounds too hard on the ears... It hurts! (That being said, I know some people love it and understand it, so i DEFINATELY don't want to see it go. And, the fact that Little Steven programs it makes it even cooler-just not for me!!)

I like this channel. They play some good stuff. But they got to get rid of that World Café. I listened to it today. It was a replay with Jose Gonzalez. They spent the first 25min playing other artists, then only talked to him for about 20min... That's gotta go.

One of my favorites. This is what Sirius should be about, unique channels like this. My favorite weekly show on all of Sirius is Vin Scelsa's show (I listen Sunday nights). I only wish there were more knowlegable DJs around who would be this good with "free form" radio. He's great.

One show I don't care for is the David Johanson show. I thought I would, but I just can't get into it. Otherwise, I like just about everything else. One programming change I would recommend would be to move the World Cafe to a different time (maybe later at night?) - I'd rather have a live DJ for the evening drive time.

Thumbs up World Cafe

If you haven't checked out The World Cafe, do so. David Dye has a great show. It originates fron NPR station 88.5, WXPN from the University of Pa. in Phila. You'll hear interviews with artists that would otherwise never be heard. It is now on Sirius Disorder M-Th in the evenings and on Fri in the afternoon.

Sirius Disorder is maybe one of two channels on Sirius (Radio Margaritaville is the other) playing a song called Louisiana 1927. The song was written by Randy Newman, and has been sung by different people, including Aaron Neville. It was written about the great River flood of 1927, but could almost have been written about Katrina (except for the part about Calvin Coolidge.)

Today is the anniversary of Katrina. Earlier today, Megless Griffin on Disorder played two versions back-to-back of Louisiana 1927. She also had some nice comments to make about New Orleans. To make a long story short, "Thank You, Megless", if you happen to read this.

Louisiana 1927

What has happened down here is the wind have changed
Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people got lost in the flood
Some people got away alright
The river have busted through cleard down to Plaquemines
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangelne

CHORUS
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tryin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tryin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away

President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand
The President say, "Little fat man isn't it a shame what the river has
done
To this poor crackers land."

CHORUS

I love that song. Very melancholy. I've heard it on the Bridge a few times.

lol, it is an unusual name.
Her bio on Sirius.com says she is "a bona-fide radio legend who is one of a handful of DJs celebrated in a Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and Museum exhibit honoring the greatest personalities to grace the airwaves."

So you're saying that's her real name?

Cool

i got my buddy sirius for his birthday...a few days later he tells me about how this disorder channel rocks and i should check it out. well i just got done sorting through a bunch of 'my disorder' on my s50 and i have to say it will now be a channel i add to me regular rotation...it rocks. i feel like a moron that it has taken me this long to find it, i have had sirius since december 05. it makes me wonder what other awsome channels i have been ignoring. im now tuning around the dial to see if i can find any other gems.

Can't say enough about this channel. I don't know what it is, or why it moves me, but it just does. From the minute I tuned in the first time, I was hooked. I can't even categorize the music, but I just love it. Plus, I find most of the DJs do a great job passing along information.

And enough can't be said for Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight. Never heard about the guy or the show until I got Sirius. Now I am a regular.

This has become an A preset for me.
