All you posting that a channel sucks, please, put down the keyboard, turn off yoru computer and never turn it on again. A bunch of anonymous pissers and moaners. Send in some constructive criticism and quit your petty bitching, it's old and worn out.

Chill is great for those times you wanna wind down. Personally, I think it belongs in the electronica category. I can also reasons why it may not, but ultimately, it is a category and a broad one at that!

Who in the hell says boombox isn't a dance channel? Maybe in Kansas, Wyoming or Nebraska you've never heard of this music. But in the more populated areas of the country, the songs played on this channel are floor fillers. Until you've experienced a night at the Amphitheatre followed up by a 7am ending run to Floyd's, you can't say crap about Breaks I've lost more than a few weekends listening to this music into the wee hours.

Expand your mind, don't get caught up in the FMology of mindless top 40 chart toppers.

What do you want us to do, give our address and phone number so we aren't random? You are really a moron. If I don't like a station and I think it sucks, I'm going to tell Sirius so they can replace it with something better. I think Boombox and Chill suck. They are the worse stations on Sirius and I live 30 min from NYC. I guess your theory about people living in Kansas is wrong there. Also, before you insult those states, you really should take a look at your own. What makes you think it's not constructive criticism telling Sirius when a station is horrible? According to you, anyone who hates a station should keep their mouth shut. What if no one likes the station...if no one says anything, then Sirius would probably keep it around instead of replacing it with something that people would actually listen to. You obviously are not the brightest person.

Anyways, constructive criticsm has been said time and time again...bring back Remix. Most dance fans DO NOT like Chill or Boombox..so why should they keep it? Replace it with better stations. That is called constructive criticism (look up the definition on google if you still don't believe me). Let me guess, Chill and Boombox are your favorite stations and that's why you are telling people not to complain about them? It's obvious you don't want Sirius to remove them and that's why you are telling people to be quiet. Let me give you a hint on constructive criticism...that is not it.

Default I'll Second What Boges Just Said...

Well said Boges! Chill and Boombox SUCK...the only reason they're on is because someone SUCKS UP to UPPER management! Sirius needs to pull their head out of their azz and start listening to their subscribers...and it's clear their subscribers overall want REMIX back!!!!!!! I think next time a channel update is made, senior programmers need to make these revelations:

1. there is a considerable overlap in programming between Chill, Spa 73, and CoffeeHouse...ax CHILL bring back REMIX!

2. there is a gaping hole in the dance category for a house music channel...ax Boombox and add HOUSE PARTY!

Look, i have been to the amphitheatre many times while i was in ybor city, whenever i'm in tampa i go there, but i just don't get what you mean? Obviously you never went to Ibiza, maybe you would change your mind, for sure it's cool going to the amphitheatre or other hot clubs in or around Tampa but trust me and you know that, breakbeats is not the most popular genre of dance music and having dj icey and even liquid todd's show on weekdays is awesome, but it's more than enough and Boombox should try playing other styles of dance music, why not having a house show, the potential is there, obviously, Boombox is here to stay, so why not try to please more subscribers.

Well, Boges, since you are so verbose, I'll humor you. Note though, drop the personal attacks, they certainly aren't going to help and just make the tiny bit of credibility you have fly out the door. Actually, you can be removed from this community if you continually do so.

To begin with, you should know, this is not an official Sirius board. You will probably have the same results yelling in the streets of NYC than you will complaining on this board. On the other hand, a coordinated effort by multiple members of this board, brought together in a cohesive package will certainly raise a few eyebrows.

You've been on this board for two and a half weeks, I've been here for two and a half years. I've complained, congratulated, gotten pissed and pissed off others. I've also offered a lot of feedback, that with any luck, helped the dance channels at one point or another. I also help people on this board in many ways and it's mostly a pleasure to do so.

You probably weren't around when this community came together and fought for a trance channel and was rewarded, oh so briefly, with The Vortex. It was ripped from our dials less than a year later, but it was awesome for awhile. The point is, don't go spouting off to someone you don't know when you don't know one iota of that person's history and involvement in this community. I never addressed you as a person, but you lashed out for no reason. Why? I only asked the incessant bitching and moaning, without offering any kind of constructive feedback be relegated to the playground.

And for the record, Constructive Criticism is not simply saying something sucks and wanting a replacement. That's simply criticism. But since you brought up the uber power of the internet, take your own advice and visit wikipedia. Hell, I'll sum it up for you.

"Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. In collaborative work, this kind of criticism is often a valuable tool in raising and maintaining performance standards."

Enough of the semantics... quite simply, you are yelling at the wrong person. If you want Sirius to change, then write, email or call Sirius directly. Coming on this board to bash other people who are here to listen to the same genre is just plain "moronic" to quote yourself.

For the record, I'm not a fan of Chill. I bounce back and forth between Area 33, Boombox and Octane. I was disappointed when Remix was removed, but it wasn't earth shattering. I was more upset that we lost ANY dance channel. Of course, I'm a fan of the entire genre and not locked on one channel.

So, if you wish to continue this conversation and have a meaningful conversation and a possible ally to your plight, then be a bit more considerate. If you want to simply yell and scream and hope others hear you, then take care and good luck!

Now Fred, you've been around here long enough and know me better It's been a year since I've partied at Amp, but I spent a good 3 solid years there as my stomping ground Marriage and a different focus in life changed that, but I still have many fond memories.

I've been to Winter Music conference three times, which isn't as nearly big as Ibiza, but well represented by *many* sub-genres. I never said that breakbeats is the most popular form of music. If anything, I said it is here in Florida, especially the Tampa area, because, well, it is

I am absolutely ALL FOR branching into any other sub-genres of dance. Well, let's throw out the really obscure stuff, but I'm a fan of the MUSIC first and foremost.

So please don't lump me into the narrow-minded crowd, I want more and varied music just as much (if not more!) than you do

Default We should have BOTH Chill and Remix

Take away one of those hateful right-wing talkers or religious stations if it's really a bandwidth issue. There are too many of those on both satellite and terrestrial radio already.

I like both Chill and Remix, depending on my mood. And a half-dozen other Sirius channels as diverse as Bluegrass, Smooth Jazz, and OutQ.

Let me just throw something out there. Not that this is even true, it's just a possibility. Some (not all) of the Club DJs I've known over the years are, to put it nicely, prima donnas. They are hysterically emotional and think NO ONE can mix music like they can. Could it just be that the suits at Sirius decided they'd had one too many bitch fights with Club DJs over various issues and decided it wasn't worth it?

(Ducking...)

Default CHILL

How any you not like Chill. Great stuff, great name, great concept.
Spa, Chill, Outlaw Country, Disorder, Bluegrass...just a few of the streams that keep me with Sirius.

this is what I'm talking about. Most people inhere don't like CHill because it doesn't belong in the dance category. They should move it to a different category to where it would fit in better and replace chill with the remix station or something similar. even a house station would be fine for me, but remix was everyone's favorite and it reached a wide variety of people.

Not quite following the logic. Why does it matter how Sirius "classifies" a channel. If you like Chill, you're going to find it and move to that channel when the mood strikes whether it's in the 30s or 80s, whether it appears under "Dance" in the channel line-up guide or somewhere else. I agree it's not "dance" but I suspect many dance music fans would like it because it is among other things, as the name implies, a chilled-out version of that genre. But it could fit in somewhere else, too.

BRING BACK REMIX, KEEP CHILL!

When I first got Sirius, I never got into Chill, mostly because I never listened to it (my own stupid ignorance). I've been listening to it more lately, and I have to say it's a great station. I'm not really big into downtempo electronica, but this channel definately fits the mood at certain times. If I throw a party, I'll put this station on for the last hour or so, and I always get complements. I agree with the majority in that Sirius needs a devoted house channel, but don't take this station off the air. There are a handful of stations I can think of to ax before this one (one of the many classic rock stations for one thing).

Im' sayign to move it to a different category where it would fit better. That way it would open up room for a station for dance. From what you are saying, they could throw a 40's station in the dance category and it wouldn't bother you. If it's going to be a chill station, move it to a category where it fits better. When you move it, replace it with Remix or a House station. Boombox fits more in the dance category than Chill, even though Boombox is for the most part rap.

Sirius really needs to start combing the rock stations. I can't tellyou how many times I've heard the same songs played on many of the rock stations. Seems like there is a lot of overlapping in this category...the same reason they claim Remix was dropped. Just by looking at these forums, Dance is one of the moree popular categories. Obviously there is a demand for dance. If they would just listen to us and take our suggestions about stations to add/move/keep, then I really think the dance listener base would explode.

They wouldn't move a '40s station to the dance category. That would be absurd. But Chill "sort of" fits there. If it fits somewhere else better, where would you suggest?

As far as channel numbers go, 38 and 39 are empty and these would be in the same run as the dance or dance-like channels are located. A renewed "Remix" could be 38.

Agree with you "Boombox" is more rap-like. More than it is dance-like IMHO.
