Jason, It's rather odd....you met Lee Abrams and I met with Sirius executives at their NYC base. Personally, I think Lee ran XM into the ground. If you read other boards, fans of the service have demanded his resignation. That doesn't mean that I dislike XM. You are correct that for a person like me with eclectic tastes, the service is still miles ahead of SIRIUS. However, I do notice changes in sound quality, the fact that radio edit versions of songs are played instead of album cuts, and that playlists are getting smaller. None of this resembles the XM I knew only a few short years back. It's sort of sad that satellite radio isn't where we had hoped it would be. Stocks are still hurting and both companies still aren't turning a profit despite promise that it will happen soon. I'm just afraid of what these services feel it will take to bring in those that have not embraced pay radio. Already it seems that the quality of music both in sonics and selection have taken a huge decline in order to expand entertainment programming. What happened to the days when MUSIC was the most important factor to why we turned our radios on everyday?
