Did anyone listen to Sirius' Smiths "Reunion"?

First, let me say this--I don't want to bitch about satellite radio--I love it. It's great to be able to listen to a station devoted to 80's alternative and I am a Howard Stern fan as well. I will never get rid of satellite radio.

However, I will say that the lack of variety of songs during the marathon of Smiths and Morrissey music was horrible. I heard Reel Around The Fountain everytime I got in my car. They advertised that they would be playing rare tracks which as far as I could tell, did not happen.

Then....after playing TLOTFIPlayboys the DJ says, "that was one of the two singles off of Bona Drag". Now I don't care how you look at it--Bona Drag is a compilation album composed of the singles released off of Viva Hate and the singles he released between Viva Hate and the Our Frank single/Kill Uncle--TLOTFIP, ID, NSAM, PP, OB. That is five singles right there--not two.

I just find it irritating that it's just obvious (and a shame) that they couldn't find anyone who works at an 80's alternative station who A) could have come up with a decent selection of music to play from all that they could have pulled from, and B) could have taken the time to get some of their facts straight.
