The Big 80's has been an all U2 channel for as long as I've been a subscriber. They should just make it official.

I like Springsteen's music, but I'm not a HUGE fan.

I've been listening to the channel more than I thought I would this week, and I've enjoyed it. My big concern was that how many songs could they play? I feared that they would be repeating themselves alot. But, I have not heard the same song twice in the time I've been listening!

We don't need at permanent E Street Radio channel, but I can handle this until January!

Unbileveable. First, no more folk channel, now converting the bridge to Springsteen. If this isn't "bait and switch" tactics, I don't know what else is.....gawd, I wish I had of known beforehand they were prone to doing this stuff.

The Bridge was one of my favorite channels. I am really upset by this. I have 3 Sirius radios and might just go to XM. Using a regular music channel to promote one artist for the next three months is wrong. I can see 1 day, or maybe even a week.

In their marketing materials , where they list the music streams, they should put a big footnote that they reserve the right to take a stream off the air at any time and replace it with music from one artist for 1/4 of the year. Anything else is false advertising.

Did springsteens record company give Sirius money or something?

That is my thought, I wonder how many bruce "fans" are getting a surprise to hear how painful some of his stuff is to listen to. That is really beside the point though, I can't think of any single artist I'd want to hear more than 3-4 songs in a row let alone 24/7.

Money is the reason for ALL moves from Sirius and XM. It's a business!
