Sirius XM 169 The Power – soilders needed
Once then Senator Barack Obama announced his candidacy for the Democratic party, like many I started paying more attention various news outlets. Since 2008, I have been a subscriber to Sirius XM and have enjoyed the programming….for the most part. My channel of choice is XM 169 The Power, basically because as an African-American there is a dearth of solid news and perspective, so the Power is a welcomed addition as far as at least getting something!!!!
Most of you know XM 169 is being upgraded to Sirius 128 on May 4th, offering the prospects of many more listeners.
Here’s the reality and reason for this post – XM169 OR SIRIUS 128 THE POWER can and should be doing a better job in programming. We have key personalities either not getting sufficient time or being outright stonewalled while subscribers such as YOU and ME wonder – When will the channel be as good as we know it can be??????
I have spoken to several solid sources and feel, if you feel the way I do……talking about it to the host while on air…is like preaching to the choir. WE MUST SEND OUR EFFORTS DIRECTLY TO SIRIUS MANAGEMENT. It’s one thing to threaten to pull your subscription, as we have heard from various callers…….only to listen later and the same disgruntled folk are telling another host the same thing!!!!!! In my opinion that is not productive and obviously if you are paying for a subscription I assume you are a person of action because it a’int free!!!!
I treasure Joe Madison and he is a jewel. At the same time, factoring playback one must ask how does he get literally 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 hours PER DAY, when others are sitting on the bench dying to get in the game??????? Again, I support 4 hours of replay for the folk who can’t listen to his morning show. At the same time, I like Warren, Rev. Al and most of the regular lineup. I’m sure your selection may be different but the bottom-line is it is a subscription driven channel.
I’m more of a basic type of person who doesn’t like spending time on idle chit chat, conspiracy theories, etc. BUT I do respect those who may as that’s what make Talk shows intriguing. I enjoy hearing the varied perspective as long as folk don’t rant or otherwise call just to hear themselves or feel they have to be some type of co-host and call everyday!!!! and host allow this type of BS. From Dr. Leon, Mario Armstrong, George Wilson to Rob Redding to others, surely they could be programmed into the full weeks content.
If you feel the same way I would encourage you to join the newly created FB Group – Sirius 128 The Power
Also, contact Sirius management and let them know how you feel:
