Insect of Terror
So cheers for a week or so everyone, off to yet another place in Sweden without internet connection . BUT...Stockholm awaits and I'll be sure to return with some great news on Maiden!

During the same exact span of time yesterday, they played "The Number Of The Beast", "Flight Of Icarus" and "Killers". And the day before that included "2 Minutes To Midnight" and "Murders In The Rue Morgue".
Generally speaking, Buzzsaw averages about one Maiden song every 2 hours. And about the same rate for Metallica, AC/DC and Van Halen. Maybe one song every 3 hours for Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Ozzy solo, Dio* and Led Zeppelin. Those bands are the core of the Buzzsaw lineup.
* This means anything Dio sings on - Rainbow, Sabbath or Dio.

Is it 'Octane' (or something like that) that plays newer stuff? It seems like Buzzsaw plays mostly older Metallica, but I seem to remember a channel that plays newer Rock/Metal stuff.
I hate you guys.
Deano!! Nice to see you!!! Hope you had a good time doing whatever you did.
Deano said:Sirius really is the best thing ever invented radio wise. They talk all the time about the pending merger between XM and Sirius and I hope it goes through; that would really open up a lot of content for all involved. I never turn on AM or FM radio at all anymore.
Onhell said:Serius is for fat cat capitalist pigs! The peoples should have a right to awesome radio too!
SinisterMinisterX said:Let me see if I can explain this clearly. And I'll try to use small words for you.
First of all, it 'Sirius' (spelled like the name of the "Dog Star", thus Sirius' logo is a dog), not 'Serius' (spelled like ... nothing?)
Second, free radio is free because the advertisers pay for it. Thus, you get commercials. And to make radio palatable to advertisers, it has to play music that will appeal to a wide variety of people. Thus, mainstream music, and little experimentation.
So if you want no commercials and a narrower (but deeper) selection of music on a channel, you can't rely on advertisers to pay for it. Who, then? The listeners, of course.
You get what you pay for. If you want radio that costs nothing, expect it to provide almost nothing.
