Liquid Metal 'mandatory metallica month'? Why?
What was the logic behind this decision? I find it irritating and frustrating that they would take the one metal station and only one that I listen to down for an entire month for one band in the entire genre. I am sure I am not the only one that feels this way.
**** Mandatory Metallica! I want Hard Attack back!
Hard Attack was the #1 reason that I bought Sirius three years ago. If they don't put Hard Attack/Liquid Metal back on the air, angry metal heads will revolt and show up to the Sirius XM studio with torches.
Mandatory Metallica can only be the work of radio consultants. I worked in radio for five years and I can tell you that, most of the time, General Managers think that consultants know everything. They don't give their Program Directors the credit that they're due.
I guarantee Mandatory Metallica was NOT Jose's idea (Jose is the PD of Hard Attack/Liquid Metal). Jose probably wasn't listened to, even though he know's 10 times as much about metal and metal fans than the consultants and GM's will ever know.
Attention Sirius management: Bring back Hard Attack/Liquid Metal or else there will be violent outrage from the entire metal community!
Side note: "Liquid Metal" and "Hard Attack" are not clever names for stations. Go back to the drawing board and come up with something good. How about talking to MTV about a partnership and using the name "Headbanger's Ball"? Now there's something a ****ing moron consultant wouldn't have come up with.
