Angry New Channels? Stupid Stones & Who

Do anyone have any inside info on when and if we can expect any new channels? I would really love to see a show tunes / movie soundtrack channel. That was a great idea XM had. Anyone else feel that The Who channel and Rolling Stones channel are a complete waste of bandwidth? An Artist channel is cool if it changes every month or so but.

Change it every month and use the artist's entire library.

I enjoyed the Stones A-Z weekend because they played tracks I had never heard or had forgotten. Otherwise the channel is just an endless repetition of a few obvious greatest hits.

Who needs it?

The Stones. I love the Stones. I watch them whenever I can. I can't believe they've been around this long...

So you think Sirius should lose the stones and the who to free up bandwith for SHOW TUNES???

Yeah, they should replace Howard with the sounds of a toilet flushing too. At least free up a station for something SOMEONE would actually listen to.

Wait, XM has the toilet flushing station, O&A are in charge of that.

I agree that the Stones and The Who channels should be changed. I trully wish that the World Music channel would come back.

Here are some of the "obvious greatest hits" they've played in the past 2 hours.

Wicked As It Seems
Little Red Rooster
Little T&A
Cherry Oh Baby
Back Of My Hand
You Gotta Move
Let Me Down Slow
Bright Lights Big City
Dead Flowers

Two of my co-workers have bought hardware and signed up this month after hearing the Stones and Who channels. I'd recommend other channels, but from your posts it seems like you don't like anything Sirius offers. You should quit wasting your cash and go back to listening to college radio.

You always capitalize the first word in a sentence. It's CINEMAGIC and waist is not the same as waste. It is a WASTE of bandwidth.

Just trying to correct your misinformation about the Rolling Stones Radio playlist. People come here looking for information and your biased descriptions of Sirius are misleading.
