my responses to your questions, Logic:

#1. The rock staples like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, STP, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters etc. Great new bands like Arcade Fire, Death From Above 1979, The Killers, Gorillaz, Protest the Hero, Matthew Good etc. Now if this isn't "damn good music", I dunno what is.

#2. Well no response needed really. Just a stupid rhetorical question that fails like a damp squib.

#3. I disagree. You can't judge a Dj's intelligence by what he/she says on air. This is a forum that is meant to be playful and irreverent. Its a radio show for God's sake, meant to be listened in the background during work or the drive. If you want intelligent discussions go listen to a Stephen Hawkins lecture.

We're obviously not going to have to agree to disagree here, because we have different ideas of what "damn good" music is, and what makes a good DJ.

The problem with this "damn good music" is that 6 of the 7 staple bands you mentioned haven't had significant albums in the new millenium.
The problem with the Killers is they play the sh!t out of their singles until everyone is sick of them.
Arcade Fire got regular play on U.S. alternative stations about 6 months before The Edge played them regularly.
You also have to listen through teenage girl music like Simple Plan, Sum41 and Good Charlotte, and mullet rock like Theory of a Deadman, Nickleback and The Trews to hear the "good stuff" on The Edge. There are places online that play all the good stuff without the crap...and an ipod makes it even easier.

As for the DJ thing, by what you've said, you want a physically attractive host, who blends into the background at work or on the drive.
My preference is for a compelling personality that makes me turn up the radio when they come on so I can hear what they have to say. Hopefully they'll make me think, or failing that, make me laugh. For my purposes, Josie just doesn't cut it. I don't give a crap how physically attractive they are.

Perhaps you should sign up for Sirius when it becomes available. The best part is that it is an amazing service with no commercials. How great is that! I think Josie is hot, but her content is tough to listen to sometimes (boring). She has a sexy voice, but does seem a little flakey at times.
Let the critisim of my opinion begin... LoL

Put me down for Sirius, too. (CBC Radio Three! WOOHOOOOOO!!)

And yeah, the Edge does play some decent new music, but the problem is they keep showing up late for the party. The Arcade Fire were getting raved about in every freakin' blog on the Net, and played all over the US, at least six months before Edge 102 even came close to throwing them into regular rotation. Broken Social Scene -- same damn thing (and I still haven't heard them play squat from the new album yet.) Metric, Stars, Wolf Parade, the Dears, Death Cab for Cutie, and on and so forth: they just have this continual habit of coming in unacceptably far behind the wave. They even picked up on the White Stripes late, for gawd's sake.

The Edge really ought to be a leader in playing interesting new music, especially new Canadian music. But they keep missing the boat.

There is no excuse for the fact that even after Funeral made every music critic's \"best albums of the year\" list at the end of 2004, I still hadn't heard AF on the Edge even once.

And the music industry wonders why people turn to illegal downloading? I had to download the damn thing to find out what the hell all the fuss was about, because the radio station that should have been playing it wasn't.

Well it seems to me as though satellite and/or internet radio is going to push out LOCAL fm radio out of the popularity scene as technology progresses (cars etc). This thread wil be old school in 5 years. Watch for the owners of all Edge radio stations to have a host of new music avenues for you to explore once the market opens. I'm no radio guy, just a forsight, what do you think?

I Agree, 102 today sucks, but thier job today is to keep atop the New Rock scene and play what the majority want to hear that they can market to (?)

I dunno...satellite radio is definitely going to change the face of broadcasting, but there are a few reasons why I can't see it killing off AM and FM entirely.

For one thing, not everybody's into the idea of paying for radio. Even as intrigued as I am by satellite radio and as much as I'd love to rush to The Source the day the radios go on the market, being off on disability right now I just don't have the money to spare. And some people do have the money, but just won't be amenable to paying for something they currently get for free.

Secondly, there's still a need for local information, local weather forecasts, local traffic reports, local news headlines, local event announcements, and on and so forth. Sirius and XM in the States have local traffic/weather channels, but the current Canadian license actually disallows the Canadian operations from launching similar services. This may change in the future, but as it stands right now, even if I do subscribe to Sirius I'll still have to turn to a local AM or FM station to find out whether there's a traffic jam on the 401.

I could see satellite ultimately wiping out music stations from the conventional broadcast bands, but there's probably always going to be a place for local radio, albeit in a different format.

bearcat,

I agree. Sorry I meant with regards to music programming. Plus I see your point with regards to paying for it. I certainly wont be first in line for a home receiver but I can see somewhere along the line it being integrated with sound systems in cars as with other satellite services. Technology moves so quickly. Imagine scanning through hundreds of radio stations, checking your GPS navigation system, while on the cellphone and trying to drive at the same time! (but no smoking!)
