    Anyone else feel the same?
    I've heard awesome things about XM and Sirius, such as a quote from the president of Sirius in Rolling Stone saying, when asked if he was worried about what Eminem would use a radio show to do, "Not in any way, shape, or form. He's entitled to say what he wants."
    :bowdown:
    The only thing worth listening to any more is the classic rock station, and they refuse to play requests even one step from the middle of the mainstream(Tangerine by Led Zeppelin, Steppenwolf - The Pusher, The Doors - Soul Kitchen), and I swear they cut one song off their playlist every day. Country is not my thing at all, but I have to listen to it every once in a while at work, and I counted, and during a 5 hour shift, there were two songs that I heard four times each. There was supposed to be an awesome 80s radio station opening up, but I can't get it most of the time on my car radio and the few times I did they have been playing stuff like Eurythmics that already gets played on the "easy listening" stations anyway. The new rock station, well, its new rock, and the rap station has the same affliction as the country one. The "oldies" station has been quite a gem on a few occasions, playing some stuff that really deserves airplay at the classic rock place, but a lot of the time I'm just not feeling the stuff they play (I guess I'm too young). Anyway, I'm sick of this crap.
    Charlotte, NC by the way
    I think I'm going to invest in an XM or Sirius receiver and subscription one of these days and hope the FCC keeps their dirty hands off it for a while. Anyone had good/bad experiences with satellite they would like to share?
    Im just feeling like I don't have enough CDs and don't know what i want to buy next.
    I'm hoping to be enlightened by these beams from space

    my local classic rock station just died. now it's basically early-mid 90's music, from grunge to alternative and whatnot. it sucks. then there's the "new rock" station that used to actually play rock. they still call themselves that, but they play christina aguilera, so i give up. they play a lot of top 40 shit too. there's ONE station that actually plays ROCK, from classic to current. then there's the oldies station. those two are the only music stations i listen to. i listen to snakenet radio online, otherwise i'm playing MP3's or cd's.

    I've listened to xm and sirius, they are both OK...not as good as my local college station- but such can be expected. If I ever moved away I would probably go with sirius...

    Im pretty sure every station in charlotte is CC owned
    I checked out the listings on their site one time and there were at least 6 charlotte stations
    Maybe there is one or two
    I sent the clear channel dudes a really nasty email one time just cuz i felt like it
    But I dont think it helped
     
  6. I love where I live because of WSOU 89.5fm. Its a college radio station from Seton Hall University. Maybe one of the best known college stations in the country. I don't always like what they play (some metal that i'm just not a fan of) but nothing they play is on a major radio station except for maybe one song every few hours. Its great because a lot of times, they will play a band a few months or even a year before major radio starts playing them. Pretty cool shit.

    You can listen on the web. go to www.wsou.net and figure it out.

    yeah, charlotte radio sucks big time, i can listen to 106.5 sometimes at night when they play good music and not the same annoying stuff, otherwise its screwed
    streamripping off of internet radio, then burning to a cd might be an option
    dont know what to say about xm or sirius
    ok, im going to get AIM tomorrow, i'll hopefully see you there, btw this forum is cool

    My area (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) has some good radio. Power 97 plays Metallica on a daily basis.
