The practice was one of the reasons listeners left top 40 radio stations and went to AOR stations back in the 70s!
As I noted upthread, that is *not* standard across SiriusXM stations -- the stations where they do this (particularly 70s on 7) are *intentionally* re-creating the feel of an AM top-40 station of that era, at which, yes, it was often the standard for DJs to talk over the ramp/lead-in for songs. The other SiriusXM stations that I listen to which have DJs (such as Classic Rewind, First Wave, etc.) specifically *don't* do this.
