Default my thoughts...

1. I'm pissed about Wax getting the ax. Why can't they just combine Sirius Love and Movin EZ into one channel? They already play all the same friggin' music anyway! Wax was my favorite hip-hop channel.

2. Wasn't into Remix at all, but I can see where a lot of people would be upset about that channel being deleted.

3. Another Christian rock channel?!? Don't we already have channel 12?

4. The coffee house might be alright. I'll give that a shot.

Overall, a big to this changeup. Not cool...

Well I would have liked to see Sirius Love & Starlite combined for a Movie Soundtrack channel. But again, this is a VERY difficult channel to produce so I'm sure Sirius is just waiting for the right staff to do so.

BTW,

does anyone got the new PDF file so I print out?

I'm digging on the Coffeehouse channel. Since the Spectrum is pretty much mostly classic Rock, and now I won't have to subscribe to XM.

Spa73, was never really into new age but I'm happy for everyone who's wanted it.

I was hoping for an all-punk channel, but maybe next time.

- BBC Radio 1 is moving to 11.

Oh...and Standard Time is going to be billed as "Standards & Swing". Hmmm...perhaps a "merging" with Swing Street, not just a complete deletion??

Oh, that really sucks if Folktown is being dropped!

I hope that's just a misprint!

still cant get a clear read on all the channels and numbers. I cant zoom in and make it clear enough to read. IF someone has some extra time, please list all the channels by number, and labled by category. That would be a big help.

What I dont understand is why we have to sacrifice Swing Street to get Revolution - I'm glad to get a New Age channel back, it was tragic that Sirius would not have one. But why get rid of another good channel? It's notr enough to make me switch because it was the Jazz channel I listende to the least, but if they ever got rid of Pure Jazz, Planet Jazz, or Jazz Cafe, I'd have to take action.
