Personally, anything with a Voodoo agenda I find creepy, but:

Christianity has NOTHING to do with Voodoo. In fact Christianity believes voodoo is evil. Do you just make this stuff up as you go along or are you just anti christian? There are plenty channels to go around, there is no sense in these type comments.

Eliminate:
1. Any of the spanish channels, I don't speak it, so it's usless to me. I know it's great for others, but this is my personal deletion and addition.
2. One of the sports channels
3. Any of the hip hop type channels. It seams like there are too many of them.

Add:
1. Salsa/Latin (does that go against my first elimination?) I love the music is why.
2. A classic rock channel that mixes the 50's-90's.
3. A soundtrack channel would be cool, or another christian music channel for my mom (she does like praise though).

Now that I've got my radio working, I can contribute here:

Remove:

Sports Byline
Organic Rock
One of the rap streams

Add:
Progressive Rock - Kinda like XM Music Lab. A mix of old and new.
Power Metal - Somewhere in between Big Rock and Hard Attack. Stuff like Iced Earth, Dream Theater, Stratovarius, etc.
Traditional Folk - Includes Celtic, English, Scandinavian, African...

Forcing children to listen to 30 year old Bill Cosby bits seems rather cruel. I'm sure they'd be much happier with some gangsta rap.

Personally I cannot see a need for two channels, but I do see a need for a more family comedy.

As long as we're devoting channels to superstition (i.e., Christianity), how about a Zeus & Co. stream? How about a "Stream Satan?" Put it right next to the Word!

I also think a channel devoted to Christian Clown Music would be delightful.

Dump:

Sports Byline (who needs it?)
Speed Channel Radio (boring, same old, same old)
Court TV Plus (it should be on TV, not radio)

Add:

Lounge station (Like On The Rocks--Sirius really needs this badly)

Cinemagic Clone (ditto)

Ska channel (missing entirely, and great fun!)

Let's drop the following:

1. The Pulse (OMG this is total crap!)
2. The Weather Channels (look out the window, dude!)
3. Spirit (get it the hell out of there.)

Let's add:

1. The 90's (why they dropped this channel, I'll never know)
2. Rock Hits (90's, 80's, 70's)
3. Punk (it's needed)

It seems the rock channels suck a little, ok, alot! They could use some revamping...too much crap. And yeah, I'm still scatching my head over the 90's being dropped. I'm sure XM must have sent flowers, cards, and chocolates to SIRIUS after they dropped it...a whole wack of subs must have went to XM. I know I would've, if I was a sub back then.

I hold out for the hope that SIRIUS will wake up soon and bring its 90's back.

The Pulse is the just revived 90's and today with a wee bit of the 80's kicked in when they feel like it. I would not hold my breath for just a 90's channel. I happen to like The Pulse... Its not perfect and will over time be tweaked, but its better than just having a bit of 90's for a couple of hours each evening as we were having after they dumped the 90's channel.

There's no reason why they can't have both...they seem to have two of everything else.

I'm glad you like the pulse though, I've always wondered who did.

Perfect idea, but with how revamped the Pulse is NOW, its just as good as 90's on 9 on XM (in my opinion).
