I hope LOC (which I love, so don't get me wrong) ends up sounding just a tad more like XMU -- I'm on the road constantly every day, and i'm driving/listening for around 25 - 50% of that time, and I find it unacceptable that i hear repeats + the same songs they play every day. how, with such an enormous catalog that they would have available, are they playing "top 40 of indie" essentially?!

i couldn't agree more. XM's indie station blows LOC away.

well now I need to go the other way a bit -- I still like LOC and listen to it mainly (when i'm not listening to Howard), they have good taste and good personality. Plus what I've heard of XMU, it seems to be a playlist where they're trying to say "here are 100 songs in a row you've never heard by bands you've never heard of". I do like hearing new stuff, but when I heard it it seemed a bit bogged down in obscure material to the point where it sounded like they were playing basement tapes. What I'm hoping for is a healthy medium -- basically LOC with a much wider playlist.
