Keep the campaigning up. Your letters will make a difference.

Keep in mind that this thread is not to haggle over which stream goes.

The lack of a 90s channel is the biggest weakness in the programming IMO. Bring it back!

(side note, keep the Pulse too!)

I hate having to tell customers that are thinking about XM and Sirius that sirius doesn't have a dedicated 90's channel, it forces them to go to XM.. BRING IT BACK!!!

Sirius, are you listening to this?!?!

You are losing money...to the competition nonetheless.

(pokes his head back in)

Ah! It appears someone else with a greater skill of leading action has come to the same conclusion I do, which is that there needs to be a 90s channel again.

Polite email sent to Customer Care!

I totally agree, I do love the Pulse, but it's a weak solution for a 90's stream. I-90 was one of my favorite streams. There is a huge void in 90's music. I hate trying to hop around from stream to stream just to find a classic 90's track. There is sooooo much music that is being missed because although it's pop, it's too old for US-1, too hip hop for the Pulse, not hard enough for Octane, not trendy enough for the Trend, not new enough for Dance Hits, and not old enough for Backspin. Allthough I can't stand New Kids on th block and other bubble gum pop, my wife loves it. I want to hear Tone Loc, Boys II Men, Another Bad Creation, Kris Kross, 2 in a room, Bel Biv Devoe, House of Pain, DJ Kool. I won't bore everybody with the longest list I could write of artists that get absolutely no air play. I could easily list 100 songs that have no outlet, but are still great 90's jams. As a former employee of Sirius, trust me I complained, and begged for a 90's stream. Hell I heard it everyday from sales people so I wrote it in my reports. Just venting.

BTW, anybody notice 90's country music is well covered on Country Road, but 90's pop, unless a very light AC style (which is more than covered) is just gone.

Why the different treatment of these two different genres of music? Why does SIRIUS apparently feel that 90's pop fans can be largely underserved, but country fans of 90's music cannot?

My wife and I signed up for Sirius and were very disappointed to not see a 90's channel. I haven't even been a subscriber long enough to miss the 90's stream and I want It back!!!

I've sent many messages.... I haven't gotten any replies? Is anyone getting replies from these folks when they write in about bringing the 90's stream back? Well, I did get one reply, but it was pretty much, we thank you for your suggestions, blah, blah, blah.... But lets keep it going!!!

I'd sure like to see an INTERACTIVE 90's Stream
