I can take Baisden in small doses. But out of all of the radio folks, I can
probably tolerate him the most outside of Morris Baxter in the morning on 91.9FM.

I have not listened to local radio for almost a decade. Now with the Sirius ?XM merger  that is starting to slide downward with commercials creeping in more and more.

So, I should hold off on dropping 7bills on the XM hardware for my car, huh? :shrug:

Im not too keen on paying extra for radio though. Does sirius give me a choice of listening to middle eastern or Arabic stations?

Believe it or not, I can dig a lot of their music. I've checked out various types of music through the Putumayo series. Nice stuff and I love being able to just throw on some music and let it play.   :nod:

I dont really want to hear the music as much as I want to here talk radio from there.

If you like arabic pop though I highly suggest you check out http://www.youtube.com/user/MelodyMusicGroup

Same here.  I can tolerate his show more than Tom Joyner's or Steve Harvey's.

I used to love the TJMS but there is not as much dialogue between him and his listeners like Steve Harvey or Michael Baisden.  I still tune into his show every now and then.

Steve Harvey is trying so hard to be Tom Joyner and tap into his market....its just fail though.

Strawberry letter is awful.

Actually, I believe Steve has stolen a lot of Tom's listeners.  Tom doesn't even do sky shows anymore because his budget is not what it once was.  :shrug: 

They both have their strong points but Michael Baisden does it for me.  I enjoy his segments on Thursdays where he has any Black-owned business to call in and give their website and business information.  :nod:

Been some time since I listened to baisden. I know Ballentine always came off as phony, and I didnt like loan sharks that prey on poor black people advertising on his show.

Strawberry Letters are fake as hell, just like Nephew Tommy's pranks. Its radio and thats their entertainment element. Ain't mad, I just know better that it is not real.  But even fake, Nephew Tommy pranks usually crack me up....I get em on youtube so I don't have to listen to Steve's radio show.

Radio-One and Clear Channel killed local Black radio. The Radio-One model at first was tolerable. Now its just the same old monopoly in Black-face. Nothing for the mature Black listener who doesn't like hip hop and wall to wall cooning in the morning.

Of course, anytime I think that I always hear Bison 4 Life in  my head saying "yo Black a-- still listening to FM radio? you ain't got satellite radio yet?"   Shuddup, Bison!   :lol:

That's what I was going to say.  I've had Sirius for six years now, and there's no looking back.  Other than alternating back and forth between certain segments of the TJMS and WSB AM 750 in the mornings, my radio is on Sirius the rest of the time, especially now that the Two Live Stews are now on.

Im not too keen on paying extra for radio though. Does sirius give me a choice of listening to middle eastern or Arabic stations?

Not sure about the Arabic.  I do know that they have Spanish and French programming.  Will have to look and get back to you.
