Exclamation Why are they playing Tex Mex music on Universo Latino?

Universo Latino is a Latin Pop station last I checked and they are playing music you would hear on Tex Mex. Why? Is this just a program they have on at night that I don't know about?

They may need someone to come in a straighten out the latin channels. Having salsa and reggaeton on the same station is like mixing Standard Time and Shade 45. Atleast to me it is.

I agree. We need more Latin Channels!! I hope we get new ones soon. 3 and a half years ago, Sirius had 5 Latin channels and even a Rock en espanol channel.

I ordered a new car this week and the manufacturer uses Sirius. I have been a subscriber to XM for the past 3 years. However, I am tired of having to use the add-on unit in my vehicles and would like the integrated Sirius unit the manufacturer offers.

But after reviewing the lineup, I am disappointed in the lack of serious Latin programming on Sirius. Latin programming on XM has been a big selling point for me. I may go with the Sirius radio accessory on my new car just to have the much desired integrated setup. But, I sure hope Sirius gets serious about its Latin programming.

i agree the latin stations are not great at all and i really hope sirius improves in the next couple of updates. geez webby i had no idea sirius had 5 latin stations back in the day. i have had sirius for more then a year now and i heard the mexican station for a min then they took it off. like i said sirius needs to get with it.

The day they get rid of the "Reggaeton" is the day I go back to listening to "Rumbon".

I want a station that plays, new and classic salsa, merengue and various type of similar tropical styles, but that doesn't include Reggaeton. That just kills it for me.

I'm not a very fluent speaker of Spanish, but it would seem to me that Tex Mex music is part of the "Latino Universe"

it is but theres so many different kinds of spanish music. theres even different kinds of tex mex music. an example is you would never hear a song from hair nation on octane. its all rock but it is different. this is the point that we are trying to make.
