Also this week we mark President’s Day/Washington’s Birthday with a creative two-hour block; a new to the channel episode of The CBS Radio Workshop “The Sounds Of The Nation”; Ronald Reagan playing Ulysses S. Grant on The Cavalcade Of America, A Washington’s Birthday episode of Fibber McGee & Molly and a Gracie For president episode of Burns & Allen.

  1. I don’t comment often, but I still monitor comments. Sure would hate to lose a couple of “originals” like myself. I hope you can hang a little longer. I dislike Facebook on principle, so I enjoy what does appear here. Greg, your thoughts??

    1. Technology is fickle, but absolutely necessary. Without the very sophisticated computer systems, RadioClassics (and all other channels for that matter) would not be possible. Sirius XM is simply too large to be run manually, those days are long gone. That being said, all technology indeed glitches and has issues from time to time. I am sorry it is frustrating. RadioClassics audio runs pretty clean the vast majority of the time. Nearly 12 years now. This does highlight the problem of having listeners that only tune in to a single channel, which while flattering on one level, simply blows my mind. With literally hundreds of other channels, to enjoy only one makes no sense to me personally. When I come across technical issues (or something I don’t enjoy) on a channel, I just go enjoy one of my other favorites and return later. G.

      1. The reason I only listen to RadioClassics is because the other channels either have language I do not want to hear or I can find elsewhere like regular radio or TV. I know radio is not a manual process but isn’t someone there if something goes wrong?

  2. Sometimes my radio sort of stops and starts but only on Radioclassics, the other channels play fine. Does anyone else have that? It was doing it last night around midnight

    1. Yes. Will. I experienced that too. It was like a stuttering. I have already canceled one subscription. This is the only channel I enjoy anymore. Don’t know how much longer I will stay. There were other complaints today on the SiriusXM page about this same problem.

      1. Thanks I thought it was just me. It isn’t the first time either. I don’t know how much longer I will stay either. I have found a place where I can download MP3s so I may just do that.
