please move Jim Ladd to another station!!!!!
Have been a Deep Tracks fan 24 -7 (of my waking hours)until Jim Ladd's show made it's debut. After sending an email to Sirius listener care concerning my dislike of this show & receiving no reply have decided it fell on deaf ears so was very happy to find this place to vent & find some fellow frustrated folks. I can filter out Jim's inane political noise as neccesary.... I have been well trained to do so by most conventional media sources! What I cannot filter out is the music, that in my ear's & brain's opinion, that doesn't belong on Deep Tracks: dailydoses of of Slash, George Thoughrogood, lots of '80's & all sorts of other music that is (are) NOT "Deep Tracks".
During the Jim Ladd broadcast my alternatives are Bluesville, Jam, Loft, Spectrum or my MP3 player.
Play the music only and shut-up
I find much of what Jim Ladd plays good. But I too have a problem with his political editorializing. Even more than that, I really hate the over-dubbing he does, much of which is sexual innuendo. I am not a prude by any means, but the repeated playing of snippets is distracting, childish and disrespectful to the music and artists. And then there is the regular yells of his bimbo girlfriend. I listen for music, that's it. If I want to hear disc jockeys talk I will cancel my four subscriptions and go back to FM. I have started retuning when he is on.
