73 more than likely will be the channel number.. and when you think New Age, you think "Spa" atmosphere.. chilling out.. relaxing.. pampering..
Ah, yep.

BTW, I also think this Super Shuffle channel will be really good!

Looks promising. My only complaint is the loss of Swing Street, but to get revolution, I'll take it!

I'm very happy about each city getting it's own traffic channel, even if they crank up the compression. In Chicago I hate waiting and listening to St. Louis traffic (no offense to anyone in St. Louis, and you probably feel the same about Chicago).

I emailed them about this a month or so ago after riding in my friends car with XM. They compress the hell out of the audio, but you still get your traffic quickly.

What's the point behind this Super mix channel if there already is Disorder?

I'm sad to see that we are not going to getting a soundtrack channel. But, i can't wait to here the acustic channel.

And, i'll be very glad to hear the weather and traffic for Ft. Lauderdale and not Phoenix.

Sounds like to me it will play ALL genres, Disorder really just plays rock/blues/jazz.

I'm disappointed with the loss of Wax, Slow Jamz and Swing Street, particularly Wax, as it is the only of channel of its kind on either service. I realize those who don't listen to rap may not understand the difference of this channel with the other three hip-hop options, but the things done on this channel are different.

The changes don't anger me enough to drop Sirius, but it's a shame something has to be lost to get it done.

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the new lineup.

The coffee house sounds pretty interesting. But what's with Talk Central being renamed SIRIUS Stars???

More good changes than bad changes, IMO. SuperShuffle I'm not too interested in, but spa73 and the acoustic coffeehouse channel will be great improvements. I almost went back to XM a few times for this kind of music.

I don't care for Howie, but Stewart could be interesting. I'm really curious about Lime. Is this going to be a replacement for Wisdom Radio? The Sirius Advice channel will be great as well. Maybe they could get one of the shows I've been sorely missing from AM in another city, Handel on the Law?

I'm also very impressed with Sirius's interest in Christian channels. I'm looking forward to Revolution because while Spirit is nice, it's lightness can get on your nerves after a while. Maybe they can deepen the playlists on both channels to keep us interested. I'm also really looking forward to the Christian Talk channel. It's nice to have some non-political talk finally.

I am, however, disappointed in some of the deletions. While I didn't listen to Remix and Slow Jams, I think they should be kept around for musical diversity. We have a lot of rock channels, isn't there a way to combine some of these and keep more diversity? I'm going to miss Swing Street more than any of the others; it was the only channel on the chopping block I listened to occassionally.

This is a horrible, horrible line-up change. There is nothing new or exciting about it.

NO more Remix, still NO 90's channel, and NO liberal talk.


WTF SIRIUS?

The more I think about it, why the hell would they eliminate Remix? Chill and f*cking Boombox can't possibly have more listeners. This is just a plain disgrace.
