Matt The Cat, formerly one of the  50's on 5 DJ's posted this link on his FB page.

 

In a move that’s modest but still frustrating, SiriusXM satellite radio has taken the disc jockeys off two more music channels, 50s on 5 and 90s on 9.

As it happens, this erases several jocks that New York listeners know, including WAXQ (104.3 FM) morning man Jim Kerr, Pat St. John and Norm N. Nite, all of whom hosted shows on the ’50s channel.

SiriusXM saves a few bucks in salaries here. The main goal, presumably, is making those channels music-intensive — a trend that has permeated all of music radio over the last 10 years.

The thinking is that listeners want music, not voices.

You are very correct - I cancelled my service -because of the added Voices.

I just heard Pat St. John on 60s on 6.

I remember him from WPLJ.

I even remember when WPLJ was WABC-FM.

Well depends.  I listen to my Morning Talk Show because of the host(s).  I certainly like less music there.

I don't see why with all the channels they can't have a mixture of both.

I wish they'd take them off the Pulse.  I get so tired of the same old morning antics every freaking day.  I just want music!

Technically, would it be that hard to have a subchannel with narration, DJ, descriptive audio, etc. that could be selected or not by the listener ??

 

 

My Starmate 5 is 'aware' of the titles played on other channels and alerts me if something I consider a favorite turns up on another channel, it can't be that hard to have as an an option a DJ on a given channel or not.

Good news about the 50's on 5 I'll have to listen to it now.

 

I really wouldn't mind the DJ chatter if they wouldn't talk once the music starts. I never liked it on free OTA radio and I like it even less when I'm paying royalties to listen to music on XM. It would seem like there is some kind of prize to win for the most worthless words said during the song intro. If they would just shut up once the music started till it stopped all would be fine with me that's why I have mute.

I kind of like the chatter on the 50's, 60's and 70's channels. I've heard most of the songs a million times so hearing the DJ's actually involks the feel of being back in those days and listening to the radio. JMO

it always made it hard to record your favorite songs on a reel to reel or cassette tape, had to wait till talking stopped this would cut off part of the song.:)

One is paying royalties to LISTEN, not to record. :)

To me I prefer listing to a radio station where the DJ announces the name of the song and artist either after every song or every other song. Stations that play songs with put any announcers seem boring. Makes a radio station seem more listener friendly with the announcing of song and artist, time announcements, weather announcements.
