    Being a former Cincinnati-an I was upset this afternoon to find XM has dropped them. I had just renewed my subscription and would not have renewed if I knew they were being dropped. I called to cancel and was given a 50% discount for one year.

    I know this is probably not a big deal for most, but I enjoyed keeping up with my old town news on the big one. :(

    It is Cincinnati's historic 50,000 watt clear channel station. In the 30's it was the most powerful radio station in the nation at 500,000 watts.

    Doris Day, Andy Williams and Rosemary Clooney got their starts there.

    Lately it was just a local talk station, but because I grew up there, I enjoyed listening to "some" of their programming.
