Listened to the SEC today on my way back to Ga from Va:

Channel: 199-SEC
Category: Religion

Before the merger, category was Sports. Frankly, for those who follow the SEC, "Religion" really is a correct category!

Believe me IMHO I think fans that follow ANY Conference would agree with that :lol:

Well, according to my daughter, "The Pulse" has gotten a rating of 'good' from her - we were driving around and I told her about the channels changes and then asked her to critique Ex-Flight-26. At least for the while we were driving around, she liked it..

Gee I wish all the stations that were joined could have gone as well as Flight26/The Pulse. It has really held up well. But I guess when you think about it the station does have probably the easiest format from the 90's up to the present to work with.

I hope she still feels that way in another month. We switched from XM to Sirius back in March and one of the channels I missed the most was Flight 26. Everyone seemed to like Flight 26: my wife, my son in law, my daughter, me... So with Sirius I tried to find a similar station. We gave the Pulse a try but after a week it was gone from our presets. Just didn't like it at all.

So along comes the merger and I'm hoping Flight 26 remains. Needless to say I'm sorry it's gone. I guess I should give the Pulse another try. Maybe it's better now, but back in March I didn't like it at all.

Well back in March The Pulse was just Sirius only. Now it is joined with XM Flight 26. And IMHO I think they joined together very well. I have XM on DirecTV so I listened to it after the two stations were merged to see what it sounded like. I had cancelled my XM Sub. I dropped them because of the lost of Flight 26, but The Pulse sounded fine to me so I'm an XM sub again.
