Did they play the entire album at once or just bits and pieces through out the day?
SXM is not allowed to play more than 3 songs by the same artist per/hour. They played only1 or 2 songs every hour, but with many factoids, interviews and other cool nuggets every hour. :buttrock:

For those of you who haven't been listening to Lithium lately, both Madison & Sluggo are now djing the channel.

Madison is no longer on 1stWave. Don't know if she's still on AltNation.

Don't know where Sluggo came from. I remember he was on KROQ when I was younger, and I remember him on one of the other channels, but I forgot which one

I noticed Madison on Lithium, but hadn't realized that she wasn't on 1st Wave.

She's still listed on the Alt Nation page, but not the 1st Wave.

I have dueling opinions of her. She was a regular on the Jay Thomas show (along with Shuli Agar), and she's a funny, witty person. But her DJ shtick is PLAYED. Intentionally loud, obnoxious, sarcastic. It's a worn-out bit that they just won't drop. They used to have a DJ named A.D., and he had a shtick too, a too-cool quick talk in an undertone. He did it non-stop for (at least) 8 years, and I'm thinking Jesus Christ enough already.

They also have Madison pre-tape these totally useless "Alt Nation DL" music news segments, that they air every 15 minutes or so. Also very annoying and unnecessary. SiriusXM is convinced that their subscribers want more than just music; and maybe some do. But the service is so stagnant, nothing ever evolves, it's always the same thing. They still use pictures of Howard Stern and Mad Dog from over 10 years ago.

I haven't listened to Jay Thomas since Rodney Lee Conover was on there.

Madison is one of my favorite Jewish American Princesses

I'm 50/50 on Madison. Sometimes she cracks me up, and others I'd rather not listen to her. I used to like the Monday song, but it did get tired.

Personally, I like a little blip of music news here and there.

I had forgotten about A.D. He was in a band (Another Day, I think) that got airplay on SXM and FM for a while. Don't know what's happened to either of them.

I'm okay with music news as a way to offer a little extra, but everything SXM does is by a pre-planned, rigid formula. So much of the "news" is just trivia. And yes, sometimes Madison is a funny JAP, but too often I find her annoying.

They removed Madison from 1st Wave. Sluggo replaced her and he's from LA. I think he used to be on KROQ back in the day with Richard Blade. The thing with Madison is you either like her or hate her. She has her haters. I mean fans.

Petition · Remove Madison as a DJ on XM Radio · Change.org
Ha! That's great, I didn't know that petition existed. It essentially says what I said, but it seems overly serious. "She sings". Oh my.

By the way, Richard Blade's on my shit list too. He just doesn't shut up. I don't care about a Nascar program on another channel. I don't care about the Midwest tour schedule of some 80's band. I don't want to be reminded of Facebook, Twitter, request lines, on-demand, and the director's club, between every freaking song. I don't need to know the story behind something from 30 years ago. Just play music.
