Were you listening on the Internet, or on a satellite radio? If so, was it XM or Sirius?

If you're listening on the Internet, use the Flash Player instead of the Windows Media player. The website says that they're in the process of updating their Windows Media Player online link.

I'm listening with the flash player and it's RM. When I listen with the Windows Media player, it's some other station.

Need help with Uverse! I switched from Dish to Uverse and now I don't have Radio Margaritaville as one of the radio stations! I have put in a request w/ Uverse asking them to pick it up.
If anyone else is in this boat...a call or email to Uverse requesting that Radio Margaritaville be added may help. Strength in numbers!!!
Fins UP!

Talk about being made sick. From RM to the Faux noise network. I'm glad you weren't moving too fast or else the shock might have caused a wreck.

MSNBC is just as bad, on the other side of the spectrum. At least they have Joey Scarborough. But other than that, it's shameless.

It was great when I had Dish...I would set the DVR to record the Radio Margaritaville channel during the concert time, be at the concert in say Chicago, then enjoy the show again when back at home by the pool!!
I have tried calling them w/ the request and also tried to find a location on their website to request it. I like Uverse better, but I really miss RM!!

Think there is an area in BN where more PHers w/ Uverse would see this and try to request RM from ATT Uverse???
My guess is that you, STL Parrothead, would know where and how [smilie=cheeky-grin.gif] [smilie=cheeky-grin.gif] [smilie=cheeky-grin.gif]

i agree most media outlets have an agenda overall or the personalities that report the news do, I like the variety of them all whether i agree or disagree. If i were to only listen to what I thought already where is the intellectual stimulation in listening especially on a long car ride.
