If you have satellite radio, then you should be familiar with HairNation. I've had XM for a few years. I used to really enjoy the Boneyard, but then Sirius/XM did some sort of merger-consolidation-switcharoo and some of my favorite channels were changed. Anyway, HairNation became my go-to station and it is still #1 on my presets. But, I just can't listen to HairNation anymore. It's true. I haven't listened to HairNation in probably two months. Now I only listen to CNBC or CNN. I just think all of the satellite music channels are repetitive. If I hear the same song too much I get mad and have delusions of commercial radio. You know, the same pop hit played over and over?
Anyway, all HairNation plays is Whitesnake, Kiss and Motley Crue. Now, I certainly love all three bands but I don't need to hear "Is This Love?" every time Whitesnake comes up in the rotation. Same goes for "Home Sweet Home." HairNation is also obsessed with Bon Jovi, but usually only "Runaway." On occasion I've heard Axe "Rock n' Roll Party in the Streets" but when the station plays a deep cut that like you know you're in for about 10 "typical" Glam songs in a row. By that I mean "Unskinny Bop" and "Round and Round."
I want a special live call-in show that features new and old acts alike! And interviews! And backstage fun!
There are so many great Glam bands that never got huge, so playing a choice cut from one of them once in awhile wouldn't hurt, yes? At the very least, I think we could add in some CrashDiet or Babylon Bombs or something. Let's shake it up! Yes, programming some deep cuts takes a little time and effort, but it is certainly not hard work. We're not talking about ditch digging here. At the very least we should be able to limit "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" to, say, six times a day. Honestly, if it wasn't for the talk channels I'd just cancel my satellite radio.
