Why in the world would they get rid of the only big band stream? Come on, Sirius! Keep Swing Street!!!!

The new lineup looks interesting. Something for everyone. I'm still concerned about "balance." Dance takes a hit as does Rap and most of all losing Swing Street is not good for balance. My one complaint with Standard Time has been mixing in Swing type music instead of beautiful music like heard on Sunny on XM. What's wrong with having a easy listening instrumental stream? Glad New Age is coming back.

All in all the new lineup will be unique!

Lime is really Wisdom just renamed as is the actual video channel of Wisdom which is on Dish changing it's name to Lime.

Spa73- I imagine is channel 73 and New Age indicates relaxation like a Spa- (Just a hunch on this one)
Wisdom Radio and TV have been bought by a company founded by Steve Case, they are going to be making major changes to the programming, for the better. Wisdom ran out of money following the death of the founder and had to sell or go under, most of the programming has been repeats of shows that were Wisdom originals when they first went on the air. The Lime name is what the new company, Revolution, is changing to.

Someone may have already said this, but it looks like some of the traffic channels are still shared... Washington/Baltimore are both on 152...

I just joined last week, and at the Lifetime rate; my primary music channel choice was for Folktown, and now they're already dropping it???????

THE STROBE -
WAS Disco
NOW Disco and Classic Dance..
HOT JAMS -
WAS Urban Contemporary
NOW R&B/Hip Hop Hits
STANDARD TIME-
WAS Standards
NOW Standards/Swing
TROPICAL-
WAS Caribbean Dance Music

LOL. Yeah I just noticed that too.

So:
148: New York
149: Boston / Philadelphia
150: Los Angeles
151: Chicago / St. Louis
152: Washington D.C. / Baltimore
153: Atlanta / Miami
154: Houston / Dallas
155: Detroit / Pittsburgh
156: San Francisco / Seattle
157: Phoenix / San Diego
158: Tampa / Orlando

So basically Los Angeles & New York got their OWN channel.

I'm wondering what happened to FolkTown. It wasn't on the list of channels to be deleted. In the chat, a sirius rep said he received an updated channel list, so I called a rep. The rep I called said he did not have any information and directed me to the website.

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...

Dude Sirius 12 is Spirit which is Christian Pop. Revolution will prob play bands like Thousand Foot Krutch, Demon Hunter, Project 86, P.O.D. These are Christian rock bands that are NEVER played on spirit.

I am not to inpressed by the channels they are deleting such as swing street, wax and remix there are plenty of other channels they can combine to save on bandwith but I am pleased and will check out spa73 revolution and the coffee house one they look cool. We all knew this new lineup wouldn't make everyone happy and it doesn't make everyone happy just as we thought. So you can either take it and live with it or cancel your subscription to sirius.
