    No. I am not an XM sub but I think that they are largely an NY phenomenon. When Infinity pushed Don & Mike aside for them ratings went down in several markets and D&M did not so very well in mid afternoon either.

    I suppose that there is some kind of market out there but persaonally I dont think it is all that large especially ona premium basis.

    Not a chance. I don't go for the shock-jock bathroom humor. BUT - that being said, if it'll bring more subscribers, more power to them - so long as they don't get rid of what *I* like, it's fine by me - nobody's forcing me to listen to them.

    Littleton,...
    No, I hate to see them start charging for these kind of programs. I do have to admit though that I listen to the Monsters in the Morning on Extreme.

    I first heard their afternoon show on vacation in Daytona Beach last year. When I got XM I noticed they had a morning show. I only drive 6 miles to work so I only here them for about 10 minutes a day.

    Just not my cup of tea. I don't mind them being there.

    UNLESS their presence prevented the return of Special X.

    UNLESS their presence caused XM to drop On The Rocks.

    OK, I guess I am getting steamed up now! ;)

    (I just miss my favorite shows. I would subscribe to Special X.)

    Yup, I'm on board. I'm getting tired of explaining why I say "OKaayy, terrific" whenever someone says something really stupid or boring......

    My prediction, they are gonna sound like they have tourettes syndrome once they first get on so they can drop the F bomb as many times as they can JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN.......

    Yeah I can see that happening too Bob, it's gonna be great!

    I hope they eventually put out some WOW bumber stickers with the XM logo.

    For the uninitiated, the WOW bumper stickers were a promotional device where they encouraged female listeners to show their support for the show by flashing their chest Mardi Gras style to vehicles bearing the sticker on Wednesday. It stood for Whip'em Out Wednesdays.

    Don't look now, but this will help sell 500,000 XM subscriptions in the New York and Philly areas alone. Smart move on XM's part to provide the first "killer app" of the format (No commercials and deeper playlists was enough for me, but the rest of the "free radio" public need more of a nudge).

    Besides this what other kind of programming will be available on this channel. I went to the Xm page the only description available was for the Opie and Anthony show.

    as of now it is apparently O&A followed by "encore presentations" of O&A. The name suggests that it might, at some point include something else.

    At first they will only have live shows (I'm assuming in the afternoon drive time east coast) with rebroadcasts after that in the other timeslots, like Playboy does with Night Calls. They may add other shows later, but no announcements have been made yet (although the hardcore fans will be happy to know that they can listen 24/7 at first)

    It was reported that after a while there also will be best of O&A shows. Early on there won't be any Best of, since the show just started, but after a few months it should start.

    I could be wrong but I thought that the live show would be morning drive. Again I could be way off on this.

    I was just assuming afternoon drive as that was their old time slot (and these two weren't the get out of bed early types, nor were their fans).

    But hey, who knows, it's all speculation at this part......

    I stand corrected. Wow, they'll devote a show to whining about getting up 4 am every day......

    Then again, getting to go up against Howard on the East Coast will be a challenge they are hankering for.....
