been listening for 2 hours. Not much of an Elton fan per se, but not too bad. Andy Roddick is DJ'ing now, its ok. Wish they had a schedule of when Downey was on, that might be something to listen to. Anyway, I give it 3 stars.

I have enjoyed it when I scan by it. Haven't really listened for a consistant period (too much new stuff or stuff not from his 70s & 80s period). But I really like his 70s stuff and most of his 80s stuff. As with any single artist channel, its taste depends entirely on your like of the artist in question.

I will give it 3 stars (only because The Bridge is still available online).

I listened to this 4 hours at work today. I enjoyed it but they had some repeats in songs during that time span. :confused:

I still enjoyed the songs I had never heard him sing before. 4 of 5 stars
