Each channel could be an iPod on shuffle for all I care, as long as my display unit tells me the band info, i don't need anyone else telling me who it is. The only reason i could see to have a DJ is for a live request show, besides that, keep em off the air and take em off the payroll. I paid that money to NOT hear interruptions.

AMEN. A good share of satellite DJs are no less annoying and full of themselves than FM DJs. The guy will the gravelly voice on XM KISS 21 is probably the worst. The ClearChannel-owned XM channels (KISS is one of them,) do the same thing you are talking about, using a recorded voice to tell you the song title and artist, despite the info being right there on the screen. I swear I always scream at my radio and say, "Yes, I know who it is, thank you!!!" And they're so arrogant with the way they go about it. It's almost condescending. They really think they are awesome and know EXACTLY what we want to hear.


But Sirius listeners should know better than anyone that if you don't like something, you have at least 100 other options. I'd fight just as hard for any other channel, whether I listen to it or not. .
Completely agree with that too.
