Wax 42 is going to be missed badly by me... The mixtapes, freestyles, and remixes were awesome. not to mention the DJs always featured. This channels is one of the main reasons I stay with Sirius! Nothing like this channel.

From the sounds of it, I don't think I will be reactivating my Sirius radio in the fall. It makes no sense. Hot Jamz is censored now so it doesn't make any much different from XM imho. Why deal with 6 stations when XM has way more? Rock is king at Sirius...

Default Channel changes

I have noticed that when channel updates are done the R&B and urban channels get dumped but the rock channels and country channels are pretty much untouched.And if any new channels are added it doesn`t reflect the R&B and Urban subscribers.

You guys just made up my mind for me. I recently bought the tuner for my HU, but now that they're cutting the hip-hop and rap short, I might as well hold off from getting it. That sucks. Hopefully they'll change their tune in the future.

Hi everybody. I'm new to this forum and I'm a 3-month subscriber to Sirius. I'm a digruntled NY/NJ listener and I love all types of music including pop and rock. But it is concerning me how Sirius is not taking the African American audience seriously. XM is miles ahead when it comes to hip/hop and R&B. Now I have to say again I love rock music, especially classic rock. I don't want switch because I've invested too much so far. If we e-mail, do the higher ups actually listen?

I have read from may longtimers on SBS that Sirius does read our emails,now when it comes to it`s black subscribers I feel Sirius says fuck em`.Cant you tell by the programing? 15+ rock stations,I dont know how many country stations but you can bet it`s more than what is alloted 4 it`s black subscribers.

Thank you for the welcome, v1ru5. I hope I didn't just book myself on the radio Titanic! Drowning in politics. This is why I left terrestrial radio. They have 15 rock stations. Great! I listen to many of them. But black music is just as wide ranging and should be heard. When I read a lot of posts about hopes of a funk station, my mind was swirling over the things that could be played: James, Sly, Kool, P-Funk, Prince, Rick, etc. Andthat's just off the top. If they have a Garage Rock station, which is great by the way, surely this would work!

Unfortunately Sirius doesn`t think so.Dont get me wrong I like Sirius very much,if they would program a dedicated funk channel I would love it.

None of my emails or snail mail to Sirius about my concerns in urban programming were ever answered, no surprise there. :\

I believe that Sirius feels that there are not enough black subscribers to warrant a dedicated funk channel.If young white teenagers were not into Hip-Hop I doubt that Sirius would carry it.You would think that with 65 music channels Sirius could make EVERY1 happy.
2 Channels for Classic Soul minus Funk
19Channels for Rock.

How so? I'm curious because losing Wax42 really has me rethinking my satellite radio option. Does XM have something comparable?

they had one when they first started, but not now. Although I heard the DJ's from The City are trying to get it started again.

Well, I believe XM has two classic soul stations: one that plays the 60's through the early 70's and the other that plays the mid to late 70's through the 80's and maybe the early 90's. They also have the R&B hits station and the slow jam station but the crown jewel (to me at least) is the neo-soul station that plays all of the young R&B artists making good music that never get played on commercial R&B stations.
