Default Channel Changes

This line up change affects two of my favorite channels.

WAX and REMIX

Those of us who love hip hop and dance cant get enough of our favorite music mixed. Anyone who has had the pleasure of hearing a REALLY good mix (either hip hop or dance) knows that. These are one of the FEW stations that actually stuck to their genres. Unlike boombox. At least we got fri-sat nights on BBC R1 now.

Im sick of the censorship and the channels sharing music. We got fingers and brains we can change channels! Deepen the playlist of established genres and you will find some VERY loyal listeners. Adding FM to Sirius is a way to alienate people who were drawn to Sirius in the first place.

Just my two cents.

Default Goodbye Folktown????????

NO! :mad: After the BBC WS, folktown was my default music station. I assume that the CoffeeHouse/Accustic station is replacing it?

I agree with your post 100%. The censorship was the first blow then Wax/Slow Jamz was strike 2, if Sirius does another move like this before the end of the year and I'm leaving. I was happy about the new portable too.

Folks,

When programming changes occur, you always have people who are happy, and people who are disappointed. But, when the changes occur and settle in on all of us, afterward 99% of us realize how much we like them. It's happened many times before, and it won't change this time (since these changes are relatively minor compared to past programming changes).

SIRIUS did make some positive changes thanks to input from all of us. Spa 73 (aka Soundscapes) is definitely one. As is Revolution. You could even say losing the 3 separate Weather Channel's is a plus.

I'm also looking forward to SUPER SHUFFLE, which will provide the first "Jack FM" format for satellite radio.

And the new lineup make a LOT more sense to me. The genres are separated much neater this time around.

So give the changes time, just like we have before. There is so much to enjoy. And many new things to experience. Afterall, if SIRIUS never made changes, people would be even more disappointed. Trust me.

PS: Finally, post 2,000

No, removing Remix would be like removing all the rock stations but leaving Faction and Disorder. It just doesn't make sense. Sirius made a huge mistake.

dance music started in DISCOS where it was MIXED by DJs so WTF would you cut the MIXSHOW CHANNEL FOR?

It's the genre as it was INTENDED!

My buddy at Sirius told me tonight that the Beat will have more "remixed" stuff on it. He would not get into to much detail, but a weekly remix show, or remixes mixed in.. looks like something to look forward to.. I know it is not the same.. but...

Thanks for the nice look! I was initially not happy with the deletion of "Swing Street", but from the enlarged view, it looks as if "Swing Street" and "Standards" have been combined and I can probably live with that. When I'm in the mood for the 40's. I'll turn it to that channel. Just dont mess with "Pure Jazz", "Planet Jazz", or Jazz Cafe".

I'm wondering whether some of what is on Folktown will now be heard on the new Coffee House channel?

I really hope this is true. I would like to see the Darude and Swedish Egil stuff sent over to Area 63, and the more mainstream dance and house mixes moved over to The Beat.

Still though, it was great having at least three choices for dance music. Now, only two.

it's 15 Rock stations....15!!

It's many genre of Rap/Hip Hop that HHN ignores and Shade45's playlist is VERY short except in the morning when Cipha plays what he wants. Wax was a chance to hear real remixes, blends, and freestyle I couldn't hear on any other station. It saved me from buying 100's of bootleg mixtapes every week.

Interesting.

I wonder if they're going to cut down on the neo-standards on Standard Time and maybe move those to Movin EZ...

Moving Margaritaville to Rock is a mistake, IMO. I think a LIFESTYLE "genus" (as XM has) makes sense, as a place to put the streams that don't really fit well in anything or that (perhaps more critically) aspire to be a 24-7 soundtrack for their listeners. I'd put the following into LIFESTYLE (to start):

Elvis
Margaritaville
Faction

An interesting further idea would be a rock (especially southern)/country hybrid to complement Faction... where Faction has an extreme sports image, this would have driving/motorsports as a sort of focus. With Sirius picking up NASCAR, the DJs might conceivably be NASCAR personalities, but even the non-celebrity jocks would talk cars and racing. Songs involving such topics (from the Beach Boys and earlier to today) would be prominently featured.

Arguably, the Christian genus could be folded into this one as well...
