    I agree, he seems very corporate oriented. Notice he is asked twice about the difference between FM and Sirius and he makes it sound like the music should be more generic since its national than a local FM channel. Interesting.

    Jed,

    I don't want to sign up to read the article for
    fear of additional spam.

    Can you give me an idea of what Mel has to
    say about his view of Sirius music?

    That is something I'd really like to
    understand.

    Ron, Most of it is business oriented. His only real concern seems to be making a profit, which is understandable. He mentions that he sees terrestrial radio as his main competitor, not XM. Here is a small quote that I was basing my statement on. It does require one to read between the lines a bit, but thats how I saw it since he compared Sirius to what he did at Infinity.
