    Default Left of Center RIP

    Sirius killed Left of Center. It merged with XMU from XM. Anyone think the song selections will go downhill. I loved LOC. XMU is not a station I have heard since I have never heard any XM stations, just Sirius. I hope XMU will play deep cuts from current and past indie type bands.

    I have read some other blogs nad some posters say XMU is not nearly as good in terms of quality compared to Left of Center. Maybe XMU will get a booth at Coachella in order to enhance its reputation.

    XMU may just be the best station on XM everything from The Knife to Wu-Tang

    Of course XMU is the best station on XM (now XM/Sirius), but is it as good as Left of Center? I kind of doubt it.

    Left of Center had some good special shows on. I remeber when Beck took over that station for a weekend. He played some music that is hardly ever heard anymore. I will have to see if XMU can retain that flavor of groundbreaking programming.

    I am not sure, it may have changed its name. I am pissed about the loss of Left of Center also, but maybe XMU will be okay.

    I called yesterday to cancel my subscription to Sirius. They got rid of boombox, the only house/electro-rock/mashup/break station they had. Everything from Fatboy Slim to Justice, gone. Left of Center was outstanding. Sirius XM U feels like 25 songs on repeat.

    Anyway, the operator said complaints were flying in, and begged me not to cancel right away. Gave me a month's credit and said to call back and cancel if I'm not happy by the end of next month.

    I think the format's gotta get better soon.

    XMU has a limited playlist? That is depressing me already. I wonder if the Left of Center DJs all received pink slips.

    Cool, I assume you meant 85 percent of the DJs, not the music selection. By the way, you are lucky to live in San Diego because 94.9 is an above average radio station much of the time, way better than 91.1

    I've never heard Left Of Center, but in general, XMs playlists were always deeper than Sirius.

    DirecTV carries XM. DISH Network carries Sirius. Left Of Center was never available on DirecTV.

    They replaced XM's Fred with Sirius' 1st Wave. 1st Wave has a MUCH more limited playlist than Fred did.

    Left of Center has braodcasted from Coachella for 2 years. They will be missed. Sirius does now have Led Zeppelin 24/7 and they still have the BBC channel so I will survive, but yeah Boombox and Left of Center were great stations! oh well!

    i dont know, in my opinion left of center got pretty repetitive months ago.

    almost unbearably so. i listened to it for the duration of a 6 hour drive, and heard a few songs 10+ times. not cool.

    FM 94/9 is okay, but every fucking afternoon it turns into the "90s alt rock express". Ugh.

    I'll miss Left of Center, Boombox and Backspin... but I am liking Sirius XMU, now we just need another old-school hip hop station.

    I ordered a cinnamon roll and the SUnday Los Angeles Times. I hope XMU will play deep cuts and not be repetitive. I did not notice Left of Center being repetitive. What did Left of Center do at Coachella? Did they have a booth or something?

    Yeah, I ate it, but it failed to gvie me enough of an energy boost to prevent falling asleep at Winchells. Maybe if the Winchells broadcast Left of Center on its speaker system, instead of banda or ranchera music.

    Has anyone heard XMU in the last couple of days? How is it holding up? I hope they get a booth at Coachella.

    Is there a way to sample XMU for free? I thought it could be done via AOL.
