I love XM radio. Mostly because of P.O.T.U.S radio which, IMHO, is the BEST mainstream(ish) political talk on the air. Stand UP! with Pete, the blog roll, and well frankly all the programming on P.O.T.U.S. is high quality and majority spin free (the hosts are generally left leaning but try to keep it straight). Plus it features mother fracking Llewellyn King, who is awesome.
Sirius Left is a channel that why I love the concept behind it, I was never able to get into. To me, the bombastic right has so distorted my conceptions of biased political talk radio that Sirius Left is left looking like a bunch of wimps compared to the T-1000 hate machines on the right.
So I was presently surprised when I heard about Media Matters doing a trial run on Sirus XM Left.
The show will start 24 September on channel 127 and will air live on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm ET and replay Sundays from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm ET. I can hardly wait for all the FOX bashing to come, my earballs are overjoyed.
