XM Radio Bluesville

Is it just me ? Or does XM seem to overplay some stuff and underplay
I think I hear Jimmy Burns "Leave Here Walking" at least 5 times a day,
and Watermelon Slim 2x an hour (which is really, really hard for me)....
... but I have yet to hear Fenton Robinson, Big Voice Odom, Larry Davis,
Bobby Parker, Robert Ward, Sam & Anson, Jimmy Dawkins, Sherman Robertson
and many others ... and I've been listening for a couple weeks for 8-10
hours a day.
Seems to be a skew. Wayyyyy too much blues-rock for my taste. And too much
of a few people in particular.
I've been out of the loop for a bit, but who is Nelson Adelard ?
Maybe they need 5 blues channels:
3) Contemporary Electric (1940s forward)
5) Rock Blues (SRV, Allmans, KWS, Lang)
6) Soul Blues
Also, I enjoy Bill Wax the most of their hosts, but he has a comment that
blues artists in Chicago make "really good money" .... last I knew, those
were mostly $500 gigs.
To quote Carl Weathersby, "I don't care if I ever see Orange again".
