your question...

is one I've often asked myself WRT to live broadcasts, especially when the yakker clearly knows less about the subject than the average listener.

On the other hand I can't address the particulars here because I don't know what guy in NY was doing the commentary. If, say, it was Gary Lambert, he'd be worth one's attention!

at least

Little Feat was good on Margaritaville. Disco Biscuits were interesting but a too instrumental.
Why would XM put a guy in New York to yak about a live show in San Francisco?? I turned that off in a hurry.

I'm not complaining

just disappointed. Yeah, they said the problems were with AT&T's ISDN lines, they tried three different ones. But for something this important to so many people, I hope they've learned and next year will have a second-source provider in place as a backup. Both Verizon and Sprint have good networks, perhaps one of those as their backup? And maybe invest in the T-1 line?

New Year's show

Well, the Sirius broadcast was a bust. They said there were problems with the ISDN lines between San Fran and New York, that they had AT&T try three different lines and still kept dropping out. (Being a computer tech myself, and knowing some things about the former Ma Bell, I can believe it.) I heard a total of about 20 minutes of the show, in bits and pieces.

They said they'd rebroadcast it (I guess from a recording made at the show.) But they didn't say when. I took the 3-day trial just to hear this show, now I feel I wasted that trial. (My wife was at the show, so I really wanted to be listening in order to better connect with her!)

Enjoying the Experience

I really enjoy the Dead radio channel, when I get a chance to listen. I only have Sirius radio at home through my TV, but I can exercise with them every day. It gets two ears up all the way down the line.
