Sirius 128 Urban View formerly The Power – What Does Change Look Like To You???


Updated ** March 15, 2014

There have been many changes and comments from our original post almost 3 years ago.  The Power is now the Urban View.  One thing is certain, listeners are not happy with the current lineup.

 

Whatever BJ Stone and Chris Colbert are engineering may be successful for the corporate mandate, but for listeners who appreciated how Radio One created the Power for WOL, which was sold to XM…..the current lineup is a shadow of what use to be robust discussion with an African-American perspective.

In fairness, one bright spot happens to be a legimate female voice on Monday through Friday, in the likes of Maggie Linton.  Unfortunately, in our opinion, she is not in the correct time slot.  Ever since Warren Ballentine had to deal with legal issues which resulted in his removal, listeners have been subject to some crafty brain-storming but the results have been paltry to horrific.  Carl Nelson was solid with “Trending” but he already has a platform on WOL.  B Smith and Thank You Dan redefined a debacle.  Others have come and gone.

The compelling question is why hasn’t Dr. Wilmer Leon been given the 10am slot????  Everyone else seems to get a hustle.  If I didn’t personally contact Dr. Leon several years ago, like many, I would have assumed he was relegated to the weekends because of the teaching duties.  But, No….that is not the case.  He has been in the bullpen ready to go and in our a opinion, a worse insult is he was part of the original “Power” lineup.

Lastly, the Executive Producer of The Urban View, Chris Colbert has been very receptive in providing answers.  His job is not to tell us (those who engage him via our facebook page) what we want to hear, but to keep us posted on management’s direction of the channel.

We would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

First things first.  The Power has changed it’s name to “Urban View”  Please join our Facebook Page to chime in on daily discussions.

The original post is approximately 18 months ago, however due to Sirius Management changing the format starting this week….the post has been on fire.  Thank you for contributing your comments.

Alright, so you are the program director…………

Listed below is my suggested changes. It is only my perspective, so please feel free to edit and present your own. Why is this important???

Like you, I am a subscriber. Approximately several weeks ago I had a good conversation with Sirius VP of Talk, Jeremy Coleman. In my opinion he was receptive of to some of the things discussed. Bottom-line, as much as I enjoy Sirius, and “The Power” specifically, I feel changes are needed to make the show more diverse/enjoyable:

1. My contention is Sirius should dedicate another channel to deal with African-American issues (small business, hbcu, religious, non profits, etc.).

2. Regarding the current lineup, my recommendations are in BOLD, and here’s the reason(s):

  • Dr. Leon should be on everyday because he has delivered solid content and has good control of his audience.
  • In Dr. Leon is to move into the 10am slot, move Warren Ballentine as indicated. His voice is still very much-needed.
  • Cocoa Mode deserves more air time, as there is minimal female representation during the day and her voice is getting stronger each week.
  • Send Armstrong Williams to 127 “The Right”
  • Move GW to the weekend but give him more time. Currently he is on 1 hour per day, however in doing his monologue or intro, he sets up negative type questions, and of course his audience responds because all they do is call in and complain about what is wrong!!! I have yet to hear Sarah, Jim, the guy from Philly, etc. call in with solid criticism, BUT SUPPORTED WITH A SOLUTION. Yet, GW, just says “my lord” versus challenging them to use the air time in a more productive manner. They are against President Obama, they are against voting, they are against the CBC. It doesn’t matter, whatever issue is on the table, unless it’s negative……they feel it is their duty to criticize. Nevertheless, GW does have a solid voice…..I just wish he had more discipline than just allow people to CALL IN EVERYDAY and just CHAT.

Let your voice be heard!!!!! Make your selection or if you totally agree, just respond by “agree, no changes needed.”

    I agree with you. I find I turn off GW on the Hill because if I wanted to just listen to the same callers call in everyday to complain and bitch about the same things over and over again, I could host the show myself and have my friends call in. GW just agrees with everything that everyone says. He never challenges anyone about their opinions. He never educates anyone. He is definitely not a Joe Madison, a Warren Ballantine or a Reverend Sharpton. I used to listen to Rob Redding until he started showing his true cloaked Republican self and talked so negatively about President Obama. He is more comical than anything with his ‘whipping them off the party plantation’ antics. I sometimes listen to Redding but find myself more than likely turning to another channel when he comes on now too. I refuse to listen to Armstrong Williams. Hated his politics when I lived in Washington DC and hate them even more now. I wouldn’t listen to his Step-n-Fetch it self if he was the last talk show host on earth. He was just too proud to be invited to the RNC this year. Give me a break — they just wanted to show a few black jelly beans and he was too happy to oblige. Sickens me. I sure miss Bernie McKane and I wish Joe Madison had 8 hours. Would like to listen to Ballantine and Sharpton longer as well. GW on the Hill, on the other hand, should be moved to the weekend and maybe 2 hours each day. Cocoa Mode deserves more time. Aside from Lou Hutt I haven’t really listened to the others.

    • Esther PADEN says:

      I am disappointed in the 3 hour time slot given to B. Smith and Thank you Dan. I miss most of the dialogue during the morning and day hours due to my work schedule, but I really enjoyed catching Sharpton and any part of Joe Madison that I could get. I wasn’t crazy about GW because as you said, he never really stood for anything. The B. Smith, Thank you Dan show is boring. When I get off from work and am on my way home, I don’t want to listen to food fun and fashion. They are nice people but the show belongs on a daytime television station. I like to hear what is going on in politics and no matter how hard they try, they are not interesting talk show hosts. I am not interesting in learning how many ways you can cook a chicken. There are too many important things going on in the black community and in politics. The show would have been better suited for a Saturday morning and not everyday during the time people are commuting home. We need more food for thought and if I had to choose, I wish I could hear more of Joe Madison when I am traveling home. Also, I found the whipping joke of Rob Redding offensive. The lash of the whip reminds me of the pain of slavery and I think Rob Redding is an insensitive idiot. He just appeared to me to be someone looking for attention and doing whatever it took to get it Finally, I had intentions of paying an additional fee so that I could listen to the station online. After the change of the lineup, there is no way that I would pay an additional charge. I even considered cancelling my subscription.

      • Sheila JL says:

        I have searched for an hour to find comments and feedback about the recent changes made to The Power (now Urban View) SiriuosXM station. Thank God I found this site!!!!! I needed to know if how I was feeling, about the recent changes, was shared by others. I see that it is.

        I hate to knock a sister and a brother for trying to do there thing, but the B. Smith and Thank you Dan show is terrible. I can appreciate the station trying to put on something positive. But this show is not the answer. It’s too long and I agree that it would be much better suited for a weekend slot. However, if I were to be completely honest, I would not even listen to it on the weekends. Its just not good at all, in my opinion.

        Although, I agree with many of the remarks about the Rob Redding show (always trying to be outrageously shocking just for shock and ratings sake, the superior god-like position he always portrayed, the screaming and ranting, etc…..), I most admit that I did listen regularly. Although, I mostly advidly disagreed with him on almost every issue. At least, he was generating thought provoking dialogue and frankly he could be very funny.

        On another note, I’m not terribly sad to see the W. Ballentine show end. I always had mixed feelings about W. Ballentine. Primarily, I hated the weekly segments, with his business partner from Debt Stoppers, agreesively promoting bankruptcy. This just never sat right with me. He claimed to be an advocate for economic development and empowerment, for the black community, but he really came off a bit suspicious to me. When I heard of his recent legal troubles, although shocking, I wasn’t totally surprised. I’m not saying he is guilty, but it did seem like he was treading very tricky waters. I do hope he is able to work through his troubles and repare the damage to his reputation. In short, I believe individuals that strive or position themselves as leaders for the black community, should be excellent. Its my opinion, that Warren still needs to do a lot of work, even if he is innocent of the charges he faces. He needs to eliminate anything that is self serving from his platform. He needs to develop quite a bit more in regards to communicating issues and positions in an effective, professional and a bit more sophisticated manner. He was really rough around the edges in these areas to me. Anyway, I will get off the brother now.

        Now that I have criticized and complained, I can hear Joe Madison in my head saying “so what are you going to do about it”. LOL. Would you guys support starting an online petition? If so, what things would you like included in the petition? I would love to read additional thoughts about the Urban View name & program changes, and your thoughts about a petition related to the issues/suggestions included on this site.

        Respectful regards.

      • Esther PADEN says:

        Can we please start some type of petition. I no longer listen to Urban view in the afternoons after Al Sharpton ends at 3. It is just to boring. I went back to listening to music. B.Smith and Dan show needs to be moved from the time slot.

      • Wade Simmons says:

        First let me say that I do agree with you in part that the changes made to the power is very “disappointing,” to say the least. It is very unfortunate how the mainstream media is attempting to silence the black political voice. With regards to Rob Redding (who happens to be my boss) I am sorry that you did not enjoy the show. I would like to point out that Rob is ‘America’s Independent’ voice therefore many of the issues we cover at ReddingNewsReview may take a different angle on views. Let me remind you that we at ReddingNewsReview are journalist and we must be objective therefore some of our analysis may not be popular with the mainstream, others in our industry or the public we serve. In all, I do appreciate your comments and Godspeed.

      • Esther PADEN says:

        I respect Rob Redding for his independent voice. I have no issues on his views in regards to his commentary. It is his use of the “whip” and the plantation that I find offensive. The connotation of both represents a painful reminder of the horrors of slavery. I will never see the usage of either term, nor his enactments of the ” whippings” as a joke. Regardless as to whether he is your boss, he needs to grow up.

      • Sheila JL says:

        Dear Wade,

        I can appreciate your loyalty and defensive postion, as it relates to your boss and the show, for which it seems you are affiliated. I get that.

        Like I said, I did listen to Rob Redding very often (in fact, almost everyday), so I think he was accomplishing his goal, as America’s Independent Voice. Remember, I often disagreed with him but I still listened, and I did ponder what he said. There were even times I had to check-in with myself to ensure I was not guilty of what he accused me of, for disagreeing with him. I will honestly say that the show did have some postitive impact, and had tremendous potential, but these were overshadowed, significantly, by other elements of the show.

        I am in agreement with Ester, with regards to the plantation and whipping references. I understand the point he was trying to get across (stop being slaves to… or voting for or going along with everything on the dem or rep platform just because it was dem or rep, and because we had allowed the current political culture to make us think we had to choose a side and be loyal to that side forever, regardless). BUT by using imagery and references, from one of the darkest times in American history, in which Black people endured umimaginable suffering and exploitation… in a daily gimmicky & slapstick kind of manner, diminished his sincere and, perhaps, fair point of view, in my opinion.

        Also, there was a guest on the show, I can not remember his name, but he was the most dispicable, disgusting and self-loathing “so called” black man I had ever heard. He made remarks about Black people and the first family that literally made my stomach turn. Even the callers that normally agreed with Rob were calling in outraged at him, for having this clown on his show, and letting him voice his racism so freely. Afterall, Rob had insisted that we call out racists, not only in the Ruplican party, but also in the Democratic party, and yet he allowed this vile and horrid creature have a legitimate platform to spew his hate. That was the day that the show crossed the line for me and Rob lost my respect.

        Regarding the petition, I have noticed that changes have been made to the weekday-afternoon SiriousXM line up. I am enjoying Lou Hutt and Coco Mode. I would be open to supporting Rob’s return and even starting a petition to that end, but I would need to be reassured that our sensitivity (mine, Ester’s and many others I’m sure) to the “dance music laced with Rob screaming “whip him” “, the daily outburts towards callers of a similar nature, and for guests that clearly cross all lines (dem, rep or inde) be acknowledged and become a consideration to him, in how he manages and presents his show.

        Rob doesn’t have to be overly offensive or use shocking rhetoricto get our attention. There are intelligient and thoughtful dems & reps out here that would be open to an independent take on matters. We actually need this as a check & balance, but the things detailed above have to be considered, at least for me to be a supporter of Rob’s in the future.

      • Wade Simmons says:

        Ms. Sheila and Ms.Ester

        I do understand that you both have concerns about the satire used on Rob’s show. And your opinions are welcomed.

        I have been with Redding News Review since its conception. This was 13-years ago and I have known Robert Redding for 15-years (when he was a young newspaper reporter in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.) I know Rob as energetic, determined and sincere. He has always been is own person, that was independent both politically and in his nature. He was also innovative: before many of the websites that post news related to black America (like the Root, Huffington Post, etc.) there was Redding News Review. In all, it is my belief that Redding News Review has not only been on the forefront but continues to challenge the news industry towards content that is focused on the African-American experience (an experience that is rich, long-lasting and that is profoundly different than our contemporaries.)

        I think I was the second person Rob talk to about “the Whip.” When he was making the track and then started to use to content within the show I too was concerned about the connotations with regards towards ‘plantation and the whip.’ However, I supported the idea behind it and what the whip stood for.

        Ms. Sheila I think that you summarized it best saying: “I understand the point he was trying to get across (stop being slaves to… or voting for or going along with everything on the dem or rep platform just because it was dem or rep, and because we had allowed the current political culture to make us think we had to choose a side and be loyal to that side forever, regardless).”

        It is because that statement which make it more important for Rob and others to use whatever methods available to get us to think and not be afraid, or loosely loyal to thing, policy, organizations or people that do not serve our interest. This is not even a black, brown, white, red or yellow issue. No! it goes beyond that. It is a matter of just being human.

        Everyday, I walk in the city of Washington, DC and I see billboards and sign communicating to people “See something, Say something.” There is nothing wrong with being a good citizen and doing actions based on the good of society. But, frankly speaking Hitler thought he was a good citizen. He also thought that he was doing things for the good of his society. And those ‘See
        Something, Say Something,’ signs reminds me of the same tactics Adolf Hitler used to control the German people, and to put others in fear while oppressing others. {For me there is a resounding resemblance. But of course, who would think that our great government would do such a thing. I do! Let’s not forget: The Tuskegee Experiment, Slavery, Agent Orange, Iran-Contra, and the list goes on and on and on.} BTW if it matters I am a black Republican who still love American and have hope in the Republic for which it stood,

        So, as a black man, who is a journalist and Republican when I look back at slavery I don’t want to forget. I don’t want anybody to forget. It was our Holocaust that should be remembered just like other Holocaustic tragedies that happened under the hands of Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Bin-Laden, Baby Doc, Milošević, and whomever else to include Bush and Obama.

        Rob use of the “whip” maybe offensive but practical. It has did what it was intended to do: to get people to think, react, and ponder.

        Again, I appreciate your comments. “Comments foster debate and debate fosters ideas beyond imagination,” Ajax Avander.

        Godspeed

        Wade

      • Sheila JL says:

        Wade,

        I am in agreement with regards to most of what you have said, and for the record I’m a Black Female Democrat. See…… we can agree on issues across party lines.

        I would conclude my portion of our dialogue by asking this question? If Rob is saying that we are slaves to the Dem & Rep plantations, why is he whipping us? How does our enslavement by them translate to him being the slave master w/ the whip?

        He wants us to be free and independent, and yet he is portraying himself like a slave master…demeaning us and stripping us of our integrity and self esteem so that we behave (or think) the way he wants us too. I think you guys can be more clever than that.

        I know you could respond to my latest comments in an articulate and eloquent manner, if you so choose, but I want you to know that I feel you have communicated your (and your boss’s) position well. I have enjoyed our debate/dialogue. It was stimulating.

        How can I keep up with you and your gang, Wade?

        Sheila (sheila.luke@iff.com)

        P.S. I did think the “long hair, don’t care” remarks were hilarious.

      • Wade Simmons says:

        I too think that our dialogue is most stimulating. There are several reasons why I became a journalist. One of them, was to be able to stimulate minds to include my own. The other reason why I became a journalist is to challenge opinion, again that includes my own as well.

        I understand how one could think that the whip is a symbol of slavery, especially to us as African-Americans. So when Rob uses the phrase in the show one may think that Rob is apart of the slave like mentality, or purporting it. Allow me to say, that is far from the truth.

        During this thing with SiriusXM changing the Power to the Urban View and as a consequence dropping our show (among others) [along with losing other affiliates as a result of the new thought pattern among mainstream media–they know what’s best for us]–I wrote an open letter to our readers. The letter was posted on our website at http://www.reddingnewsreview.com. It detailed the how Rob and I met as two young journalist. It talked about how Rob started Redding News Review and the purpose. I can assure you and anybody else that Rob has always been a person that was concerned about people, especially our people. I think this is why we both became journalist, because we care.

        So back to the whip. The whip hurts just like the truth. It is a common fact that the whip was used during slavery and in other times throughout history. Jesus Christ was scourged before the crucifixion. The whip causes pain and many times was used to not only punish but to also send out a message to those who went against the status quo.

        James Madison wrote: “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.” [The Federalist Papers]

        Well men are not angels, what we can determine by this quote that government is a necessity. The unfortunate thing is that these same men (and women) that are not angels run the government. Because of this corruption is commonplace.

        By no means would I say that I am a saint. Far from it, I battle with my demons everyday. I strive to do right and make the right decision but despite all I have made so many bad decision that have hurt me and others. I am working towards amends with the God of my understanding, with others and myself. However, what I can say during my tenure on earth is that I have learned two main things:

        1. Never do harm to someone who is trying to survive just like you.
        2. Always maintain a sense of morality.

        For me, I think that many of the elements of our society has lost the second. And as a result performs the first. If this is the case then somebody who is objective have to pull out the whip and remind people of things that matters, things that are superficially and things that appear real but when you dig deeper you may uncover the true nature. That is the great thing about being a journalist: we are taught to dig deeper and deeper, uncover and expose. “What’s really the deal?”

        Rob is not the only one that use the term “whip.” In the United States Congress, in both chambers (the Senate and House of Representatives) there is a majority and minority whip. Yes, these are there actual titles, to this day in 2013. The Whips have a very specific job which is to keep members of their party in line. That is that they whip them back into conformity.

        I rather be under a more prudent whip that is wholesome like Rob’s than theirs. I rather be whip to be free and independent like the Israelis during the Exodus who had to be reminded over an over again to pursue their freedom instead in going back into slavery. They was afraid of the future and lacked faith. Instead of independence and true freedom, in the pursuit of their “unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

        Yes, among these are specifically ” life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” but there are others like: creativity, bringing forth ideas, logic, faith, hope, the right to fail and to succeed; and any other concept that a man can conceive that does no harm or hinder the same rights of another.

        Yes, the whip is important because without it Moses and his whip, the children of Israel have returned to pharaoh. Return back to the slavery because that what they was used to. Because that is what they told that they were, nothing more nor less.

        But foe to such thinking! I am so grateful that I grew up (and so did Rob) with certain mentors who taught me that I could be anything I want to be. Money matters not. It is just a tool. Pursue to do something to advance human nature. This is what make the election of President Obama still special despite the fact that I disagree with much of his politics. Right now, as I am typing this I am looking at, on my wall the Commemorative Inaugural Edition of the 44th president of the United States. With that I can still stay that there is hope for my people, society, the young and humanity as a whole. Yes, I know it is very philosophical, but it is my philosophy and I have a right to have it. Anyway, somebody has to work towards it. If not the world would not be worth living at all.

        So yes the whip is important. Proverbs 23:13-14 reminds us why: “Don’t withhold instruction from children; if you strike them with a rod, they won’t die.Strike them with a rod, and you will save their lives from the grave.” So, just as the whip punish it also reproves.

        Again, I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share. I know I am long-winded, I guess that is another reason why I like journalism. I can be as long-winded as I like to be. And my audience can read how much, and what they like.

        Also we welcome all and we thank the supporter and the critic. Actually it is the critics that keeps us on point. Without them we would lose focus become big-headed and no different from the establishment. That’s their problem, forgetting. Rob is still on air and I and the other fine journalist on our team are still in the back making sure that we stay on target. (You should hear the conversations on our weekly conference calls. You think the whip offends? Anyway that is what you get when you get a bunch of journalist together.) And it is through the array of opinions that Rob can provide objective analysis.

        Our website is at http://www.reddingnewsreview.com. You can get out podcast there and here Rob’s show streamed live. Thank you, this dialogue reminds me of my purpose, which is to inspire the purpose of others.

        Wade

      • Esther PADEN says:

        Wade, employee of Rob Redding, No amount of dialogue is going to get me to understand nor accept Rob Redding’s use of the whip and the ideology of getting people off of the political plantation. It is the connotation of the two together that creates the imagery of slavery. The lashing of the whip is insensitive to our forefathers, and I repeat, a painful reminder of our past. I am sure our ancestors would not find his analogy harmless and a springboard for debate. As long as he continues to use both symbols, I will never support your boss.

  3. Andrea says:

    They have taken Warren B off, cut Al Sharpton to 2 hours and gave B Smith 3 hours. Who is making the decisions? Please raise h### about this. B Smith should be on, but not until after 3 hours of Al Sharpton. Cocoa Mode should be on daily after Sharpton. Restore Warren and Sharpton.

  4. happyintrovert says:

    I agree that things seem to be in rapid decline there. I don’t get this name change. Urban View? It appears that they are not only diluting the name, but they are also diluting the content. I cannot believe that they removed an hour from Al Sharpton at a time when there are so many critical issues out there. I consider Joe Madison, Al Sharpton, and Warren Ballentine to be the anchor programs on that channel. I haven’t made it through an entire B Smith episode yet, but a 3 hour, daily show is too much. Perhaps they can give her 2 hours on a Saturday or Sunday. I never listened to Redding, and I rarely listened to GW. He is ill, and I wish him well. They have great weekend people that could bring substantive content to the weekday schedule. They have Cocoa Mode, Lou Hutt, and David Anderson. I don’t know if these folks have time in their schedule to do daily shows, but they have a lot to offer. Also, I miss having Mario Armstrong there. They should really seek out someone who can come in and do a science and technology show. This channel would really be strengthened by more technology content and more shows on finance or small business. These are things that are badly needed in our community. If things don’t improve soon, I am going to cancel. I can get fluff for free. I don’t really listen to the other channels that much. At any rate, we can give feedback here.

  5. happyintrovert says:

    Also, who knows how this situation with Warren will turn out. It doesn’t sound as if his show will be back anytime soon, if at all. I wish him the best though. Andre Eggelletion, who frequently covers for Reverend Sharpton, has a great 3 hour program that is on weeknights at 7 pm (on WOL). I listen online, and I also switch there to listen to Sharpton so that I can hear the full 3 hours. ANdre is a good host, and he is knowledgeable. Perhaps they can bring him on at some point.

  6. Wade Simmons says:

    Andrea I agree this change demonstrates what the media thinks about black political power. The only the mainstream media thinks is that black talk should be about, sports, drugs and entertainment.

      I am so glad to know that someone feels the same way I feel about this. When I heard Joe Madison mention the name change to “Urban View” my immediate reaction was what is this? Only urbanites listen black talk radio but more importantly every black person’s perspective and plight is not from an urban view! But what was really telling was the line up that followed. Talked about going from “The Power” to “The Powerless!” The new line up is a complete joke and in my opinion totally disarms us from receiving quality information and hearing spirited discussions so thank you happyintrovert for passing along that link for I’ve been wanting to sound my frustration since this occurred..

  7. Wade Simmons says:

    We really need to contact SirrusXM and let them know that we are not amused.

  8. AmberEyedGurl says:

    Daily Line up:

    Joe Madison 6am – 10pm
    Dr. Wilmer Leon 10am – 1PM
    Al Sharpton 1pm – 4pm
    Mark Thompson 4pm – 7pm
    Cocoa Mode 7pm – 9pm
    Rob Redding 9pm – 11pm
    Armstrong Williams 11pm – 12am

    Weekend Line up:

    David Anderson
    Lou Hutt
    Real Estate
    Legal Matters
    B. Smith and Dan
    Mario Armstrong
    GW on the Hill
    Maggie Linton
    Tavis Smiley
    Kojo Nnamdi

    I would increase my listening, if the programming looked like the above.

    If the current programming continues to deteriorate, I too will cancel my subscription. I bought XM for “The Power”. Not Urban View and this ridiculous new line up.

    • LON GLOVER says:

      THE REASON I BOUGHT XM IS FOR MORE BLACK TALK RAW AND UNCUT. I EVEN WANT FARAKHAN IN THE LINE UP. TIRED OF US BEGGIG TO CONFORM.THIS IS GETTING OLD. WE NEED TO BUY OUR OWN AND GET OUR OWN. IF GETTING ON THESE MEDIA OUTLET MEANS CURTAILING FREEDOM OF SPEECH THEN THE HELL WITH IT. GET YOUR OWN OUTLET.

      warren has pressing legal issues, that’s why he’s no longer on xm radio nor terrestrial radio.

    • I am not enjoying B. Smith and Dan. Eating well is a must for good health but giving recipes on the radio is NOT GOOD RADIO!! Rob Redding is a JOKE, thank goodness he is not longer on the 128!!!

    • Stephen Manning says:

      The urban view station is a joke do we really need to hear the black eagle three times a day or al sharpton what happened to gw or rob Redding . this station is trash they need to shut it down

      • guy washington says:

        I really enjoyed GW. Why? Because the people who called in wasn’t about the establishment. They saw the people the President put in place didn’t help the middle class. With Joe Madison you make a statement and he makes a paragraph. No discussion unless you are white. After 1300 hrs I no longer listen. Also love Dr. Leon

  9. Gene A. Wills Jr. says:

    I would like to hear a show that focus on a new philosophy toward Black issues. No more blaming anyone for our problems a show that tells us we have to simply do better. I believe that we are at a new era turning away from things that have destroyed us such as drugs and negative rap music. The show that discuss history and what we can do as a people to control the future.

  10. Cali Caller says:

    I only purchased my XM because of the Power and now that it’s changing format I have to decide if it is worth my money.
    I can see now that since the election is over SiriusXM no longer need the Black Political commentator to help corral Black voters. There is no shortage is qualified Black Men and Women in this field that can present views from a Black Prospective to fill the slots that the station has 100 times over so on-air talent I’m sure is not the issue.
    Sirius does not respect the Black Audience and feels that our issues are not relevant if they do not repersent interest of the station, this is what happens when you have the “POWER” on do not use it.

  11. Mathes says:

    I doodoo a recipe every day too

  12. pat s says:

    I agree with most of the comments esp. esther paden. I too like to listen to political talk from a black perspective on the ride home from work. Now there is only the boring b. smith show. They seem like nice people but it bores me to tears. I switch over to an AM station in my area to pick up the remainder of the Al Sharpton show. While many people have complained about Rob Redding, I would rather listen to hm than get cooking tips or other dribble from B. Smith

  13. Omar Detroit says:

    People are very closed minded these days. Y’all are talking like this man(Rob Redding) is using his platform to promote negativity or the maintenance of chattel slavey! Understand his methods and message please. (2)This was the only guy keeping people abreast of the Zimmerman murder case. While all the others were riding the President Obama horse.
    (3)And him mentioning whips and plantations, (I hope) couldn’t offend you more than the actual slavery going on right now in America! Do some research and listen to the women who have just made it off the plantations down south. Lets see if that same “lets get em'” fire is still in y’all’s bellies. Peace

    • Omar Detroit says:

      Lets get up in arms about Black men being lynched in Deleware. Sharpton and Madison havent said much about that have they? (Neither has Rob Reddin for that matter) we would rather listen to what make the dominate class comfortable. At least Rob Redding and GW gave folks a platform to discuss these types of topic. To me GW has the most interesting show on the urban view. To me. Come on people

  14. If anyone needs to be removed it’s Joe Madison. He has no respect for anyone who calls unless they are a celebrity. He is so ignorant towards people, cut people off and thinks he knows everything. Just like all media outlets they will always leave the ignorant on the make a fool of themselves and his people. A real simple black man. If you don’t agree with him he starts yelling then cut you off and talk about the person . Sad man.

And yes, I can’t stress enough….to some his rude behavior is a deal killer. Others don’t like him snacking between calls (lol), but Joe is Joe, who reminds me of a professor I had.
