Any Satellite radio listeners here?

Post by Dr. Radio on Mon Apr 14, 2014 1:01 pm

Tried channel 4 today... Where is the 1940s music I broadcast to my console?

This better be temporary. Apparently I'm not the only one upset.

I use to listen to it but the dish TV continued to raise their prices each month so we dropped it. We went with the local Telephone company. Now we get internet ,phone, and cable TV from one vendor. It doesn't have 40s on 4 but it has some other channel similar to it. Most of the stuff I listen to is like KABL, streaming online stations.

I used to have satellite radio, but then I discovered Pandora & Slacker. I read last week that Sirius was doing away with 40's on 4. It's a shame, it was one of the few channels that played decent music.

I would be willing to wager that salellite and cable tv providers will be LOTS less independent in the near future.  OR they will get a chunk of the pie as far as Internet streaming is concerned.  My wife calls every three months, like clockwork, to complain about how much they charge.  Invariably, she will get a "$9.95 a month for three months" deal out of them.  The Internet is eating their lunch, and they know it.  I never have cared for satellite radio myself.

Anyone who wants, needs or likes a 24 hour Billy Joel station needs to take their own life, immediately. I am not kidding.

One would have to click on the link in the OP's post to understand.

I have to admit, I'm a pretty big fan of Billy Joel. That being said, I cannot condone a station dedicated solely to him, Sinatra, Springstein, Buffet, Nirvana, Ozzy, Pearl Jam... etc. Sure they are all great musicians in their own right, but I don't want to listen to those stations, especially when it comes to doing away with the stations that I listen to on a daily basis. I got fed up with Sirius' constant program changes and the rising costs, that's why I made the switch.
