I was promised follow-up replies and have gotten exactly nothing.

It's stuff like this that makes SIRIUS look bad. Really bad. How difficult can it be to do what you say are you going to do? If they ain't gonna follow-up, they shouldn't commit themselves to doing it.

I agree, what makes no sense is where are all these email's going? Back when we did the email on the repeats, I zero replies, so I guess getting one this time could be seen as an improvement. Still, I think out of 6 messages, one reply isn't very good. You can forget a reply from Joe Clayton or other members of management. I have also sent email in on programming request, suggesting changes or additional programming. Not once as any of them replied. I think their email's just all go into one catch all mailbox.

I hate to keep going back to this, but that is truly what separates SIRIUS and XM. Those people actually interact with you and make you feel part of things. Not so with SIRIUS!

I agree... whenever i have sent an e-mail to a program director or jock on XM, I have gotten a reply - usually within the day... And they are well thought out answers - specific to my question... Not some "Hey thanks for the support - keep listening" standard answer that ignored what I asked...

I see so many ways Sirius could make their service more appealing at little or no investment, but ignoring their subscribers is a major sin on their part....

In this thread: http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...pic.php?t=2236 is a reply to my email about getting I90 back. I guess I was lucky by getting a reply back.

Well, I've been here for a few days now and I sent my letters in to support the cause. I've had my Kenwood system since Thursday and that is the ONE BIG HOLE that I noticed the first night. I was trying all the stations to see which ones I liked and I thought to my self.."Where are the songs from the 90s? They've got to be here somewhere?........I guess not!" I still think Sirius is heads and tails above XM......and I own stock in both companies, but Sirius IMO has better programming and better coverage. GO SIRIUS! AND BRING BACK THE 90'S..............PLEASE!!!!

Hi Jeremyp and Welcome to Sirius Backstage. I think you are right, Sirius programming is better, and many miss I-90. I'm not one of them since I wasn't ever a big fan of the 90's music on the whole, and the Pulse suits me fine. Maybe if I heard I-90 I would change my mind but I got the service after it was already gone.

Hello JP.... The 90's are here they are just scattered over several streams, which is unfortunate. We really do need a 90's stream and I feel certain that in time we shall have one. SIRIUS will eventually listen.

In regards to SIRIUS being head and tails above XM. I agree with you there too in many areas. However, they both have their strenths and weaknesses there is no doubt about that. Programming wise, I too prefer SIRIUS over XM. Though XM does have a few streams, I sure wish we had on SIRIUS.

Glad you found us on the Backstage... Welcome!

Since I created the graphic, I figured I had better change my sig too, to support the cause.

I think the big hole between 8 and 10 needs to be filled too. Adding a sig to support the team...

I definitely want a 90' stream. I wasn't around for I-90 but I heard 90's on XM and if I-90 was anyting like that I WANT IT!!

Two questions...

1. does the Pulse sill say the "nineties and now" b/c I don't listen enough to hear their imaging, but I will scan by their and see what's on and I notice a lot of 80's stuff on their.

2. how do I add the I-90's banner to my sig?

Yes it says "The Best of the 90's and Now" and when they play an 80's song they say "And a Little Piece of the 80's" or "And because you asked for it a song from the 80's"

Those aren't exact quotes but should be close. Don't know how to add the sig.

cool, so the Pulse is really the Hot AC, best of the 80s 80s and now.

thats fine, there is a need for that and its a viable format. but it should not be the substitute for an all 90's stream which plays all type's of 90's music...form Hootie to 2Pac to yes, even N-sync.

come on sirius, give us what we want!!
