Bootcamp Day 34 (Delayed) — The Heart

After my brief visit to The Torch earlier today, it was time to catch up on the last channel I’d missed while in France — The Heart.

The Heart’s programming theme is very simple and straightforward: all love songs, all the time. They stretch it as far as playing “breakup songs”, but that’s as far as they go. And they lived up to their claims, at least during the time I was listening.

I could see coming back here once in a while (and it might make better background music for activities other than sitting in my office, writing Python code), but it’s not likely to be one of my frequent stops.

Bootcamp Day 44 — The Torch

Today, Bootcamp visited The Torch, which is the first channel in XM’s Christian neighborhood.

I had considered skipping these channels, since I’m Jewish and have no interest in the message that these channels are preaching, but I decided to tune in anyway and hear what the music sounded like as music, independent of the content.

So, with that disclaimer, let me say that listening to The Torch reminded me a lot of my visits to KISS-XM and Top 20 on 20. I’m giving it the same rating I gave those channels, too. And, like those channels, I won’t be back.
