XM Radio - Madison on the radio

Since 2003, I have been an avid XM Radio listener. I enjoy listening to music without commercials and annoying radio DJs. At one time, I had 5 XM Radios. That number has since gone down.

Unfortunately, ever since Sirius and XM merged, I have been more and more disappointed. The price has gone up, you removed the free online listening, added additional charges (Royalty charges), but worst of all they kept annoying, disrespectful DJs. I would like to complain about the radio DJ, Madison. She is on 2 channels: Alt Nation and 1st Wave. Since this is the case, I lose two stations that I cannot listen to because she is annoying, rude, crude, doesn't talk about current music, unprofessional, and is very disrespectful to her listeners.

Some examples of her unprofessionalism are:

She yells into the microphone

She sings

She talks about her private parts, flatulence, and child

She speaks her opinions of bands (current and past)

She does not give her listeners correct information about the bands

To back up her unprofessionalism, please see the group on Facebook entitled I Loathe Madison on Sirius/ XM radio: https://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_124909808352&id=10150203882303353

They currently have 231 members and constantly complain and threaten to leave Sirius/XM Radio.

I have read that Sirius/ XM radio DJs are "Master music programmers and on-air personalities, who are true experts, host our music. They back up the music with compelling information about the song being played." I respect this fact. I can tell you this is certainly not the case with Madison.

I have contacted Steve Blatter, Sr. Vice President, Music Programming with Sirius XM radio and received a somewhat generic letter. I know numerous people that have complained and nothing has changed.

I just created a petition entitled Remove Madison as a DJ on XM Radio, because I care deeply about this very important issue.

I'm trying to collect 1000 signatures.

This is not a petition site. This is a site to air your frustrations and complaints. It is called "Pissed Consumer" for a reason.

She is the most annoying, unprofessional DJ that I have ever heard. If I wanted singing and annoying blabber, I'd listen to FM (which is where she belongs, on an obnoxious morning talk show). I PAY for satellite radio, and expect more.
I won't be paying too much longer, though, as I just can't deal with her fingernails on a chalkboard voice, ignorant comments, and stupidity.

Madison used to drive me crazy. But she's actually getting funnier. Some of the stuff she comes up with is fascinatingly insightful and thoughtful. She's worth the music interruption. Meanwhile, that guy on 40's on 4 has to go.

It's amazing to hear people actually supporting Madison. She's the single most annoying DJ I've ever heard. Anyone saying she's witty or intelligent is obviously neither.

I think you are crazy and boring, Madison is the best!! I love her funny songs and her rude and crude commentary. You clearly don't know how to take a joke.

I've been an xm subscriber for 10 + years. I've been turning that obnoxious girls voice down for at least 3/4 of that time. I've had to listen to that girl talk about the rank smell of her vag, her singing, her lame jokes, her cross between a valley girl and some chick from Wisconsin's voice, and her constant use of the letter F instead of the actual word for *** for longer than I wish to recall. I've just recently tuned back in to alt nation, and I have to say, she's not as obnoxious as she used to be. Although, she does punctuate everything with 'Madison" like some very uncool version of lumpy space princess. I really don't understand why they've kept her on all these years unless it's because everyone loves to hate her. That other dude, Reegan or however you spell it just announces the music and goes on about his business. But not Madison. She has to grunt and scream or whatever she does. Whatever. She still sucks. And although I don't have to hear about her vag anymore or about Kings of Leon and how she wants to "F" them (it's satellite radio chick, if you're so hard, the word is ***) she's still enough to make me turn the volume down in between songs.

Isn't this why we listen to XM radio, because it is "off the cuff"? If you want listen to "straight" stuff, then go back to listening to your local radio station.

No - we listened to XM Radio for the music, not commercials, not for annoying DJs. Since they tend not to play that anymore, I have switched to Pandora One. I believe that if XM keeps going the way they are going, they won't have anyone else to merge with and they might have to fold.

No, we PAY to listen to radio to not hear it. If we want to hear "off the cuff" or whatever you're calling it, we'll listen to Howard Stern. No, we'd really just like to hear music on the MUSIC channels.
