It's soothing music.. Not really what I like, so I won't be listening to this channel..

What I find odd is that they've grouped it with the jazz lineup.. I only listened to a few tunes, but this music isn't jazz by any shape or form.... I would have put it with the Electrontic/Dance channels..

Took a listen on the way in to work this morning -- the perfect match for my drive! I like to get into the office very early, and setting the cruise heading North on I-294 before traffic slows, and while it was still dark outside was the perfect mildly surreal way to wake up.

My new preset number 5!

Can someone please tell me (I will sample it on-line later) if Spa 73 is basically what Soundscapes was? Thanks, & anxious to return to Sirius!

Andrew, it sounds the same to me. I listened on the way to work today and it's so great to have it back full time. It's definitely on a preset.

It's my preset A1 but I sure hope they mix it up a bit; I'm a huge fan of "space music" so I hope it's not all "easy listening" new age. Still, it was a nice addition to my commute.

One of my complaints to Sirius when I first signed up was that there was no true New Age channel. They politely directed me to Chill which was much to electronic for my taste... now we got a real New Age channel and it's quickly become one of my presets.

Later,
Bill

Sounds great so far to me. I haven't listened too much yet (I've been on my new favorite, "Sirius SuperShuffle" most of the morning), but from what I've heard, I really like "Spa 73". I loved "Soundscapes" before it left, so "Spa 73" will definately get a preset on my radio. I'll probably set it on a preset right next to the "Jazz Cafe". Those two will definately be my oasis for chilling out. Good job Sirius, and thanks for listening to us and bringing it back.

Great I am trying to listen on line to a few of the new channels and it says it's down. So I guess I'll have to wait till I get in my car on my way to work here in a couple hours.

Edit: Now it's working!! I am listening now.

Fantastic channel. I didn't think I was much of a fan of this genre, but I'm really enjoying it. I didn't realize how big of a void there was in the Sirius lineup until I actually heard this station this morning.

Jury is still out on Coffee House and SuperShuffle.

I generally don't like New Age, but this station is better than I thought it would be. I don't think it is all instrumental - they had a Dido song on earlier this morning.
