    There's a show on there called The Jason Ellis Show. I've only gotten to listen for a little bit at a time but so far the best of I heard wasn't too bad. It actually got me listening to a different channel than 202 and octane all the time.

    I can't stand this. Why do they have a fuckin' talk show on a music channel?? I guess his show is OK, but put it on a talk station and not eat up afternoon drive on one of the music stations with his dreck.

    I agree it shouldn't be on a music channel, But it isn't a bad show.

    I have been listening to Ellis for awhile now, he is pretty good when he is on. But if he is having a shit show, right back to the replay on 202. And by the way Tony Hawk, Bam Margera and a few others have shows on Faction after Ellis.

    Opie mentioned Ellis the other day. I listen on and off in the afternoon depending on how much of the replay of O&A I already heard. I usually flip over to Ellis during the commercial breaks of the replay.
    Jason puts on a decent show. I mean he has guys on there named RawDog the Trust Fund Boy and a guy named Cowfucker. How can you hate that?
    Much like the XM side of O&A, the whole Jason Ellis show feels very raw and free-form which has an appeal all its own.

    Ellis again brought up that He's starting to hear people are talking about him. He mentioned OandA and of course he kissed hoo hoos ass. I really hope Sirius =gets him off faction and onto 202.

    I prefer it until the end of my work day :action-sm

    But yes... I agree. O&A, R&F and Ellis make for a much quicker work day.

    I'm torn now. I use to be a huge O and A fan and then they signed the simulcast deal. I found Ron and Fez to be the better show. Then I found Ellis and it reminds me of the early days of the boys on just XM and I'm loving it all over again. I even resigned up two more of my old units cause the two drivers liked the Ellis show. It pisses me off to think that O and A could be doing great things and the fucking management is fucking them.

    I have to say though, I think Ant and Jim Jefferies were a little put off by Jason's optimisim. Ellis can be a very self absorbed prick, BUT I think that is why it is very fun to listen to his rants. I think he would be a great fit on 202... maybe a little simulcast on Faction and the Virus?

    What's up with Faction playing Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, and Ozzy lately? Nothing wrong with those bands, but on a supposed punk station? Sirius has turned faction into a shitty terrestrial-like radio station. Cunts.

    I think it hasn't been a punk station for a while now. The promos say something like "music for action sports," whatever that means. The music channels just keep getting worse. They never should've jettisoned Fungus.
