Today was a sad day for my musical world. Today was the first day that my favorite satellite radio station was not on the air. I had come to love listening to Sirius Disorder, but today after the merger of Sirius and XM stations I discovered that Sirius Disorder was cut.
I got a Sirius radio when I purchased my Dodge Ram 3500 Cumins. I had not listened to any radio regularly for about 10 years. I had grown tired of commercials and had developed a passion for Internet radio. I grew up listening to free form FM radio in the 1970s. I remember disc jockeys playing whole sides of albums like Genesis and Santana. Today that just will not happen. I remember a station in Pasadena KPPC where the DJs played anything they wanted. This is how I discovered the music of Frank Zappa.
So much to my surprise I discovered a wild free form station on satellite called Sirius Disorder. I loved it and listened to it in my truck and online 90% of the time that I was listening to music. I will survive without Sirius Disorder. I will be forever affected by it’s memory. It seems that all of my favorite radio stations eventually bite the dust.
Oh by the way this post was written on a Cap Metro bus with Free WiFi. I am getting a ride from work to the NW park and Ride in Cedar Park.
