Default Labor Day Specials?

Next weekend is already Labor Day weekend.. Any official word on what specials will be running on the streams?

Holiday weekends are times when I especially enjoy listening to the music streams because they cut down on the repeats and dig out some songs that haven't been in awhile..

Thanks for posting those Ron..

I look forward to listening to the Spectrum and Sirius Disorder that weekend..

Alt Nation and First Wave also tend to be better when they do "block party" weekends.

As dead as Barry Williams sounds, he is very much alive!



I really would like to see some of these become weekly specials, such as the Bluesiana and Prog Rock specials. Both are missing and both have fairly large audiences...

Nice.. they should do things like this more often. I'll probably be tuning into octane to see what people have to say and what they request. Makes me wish I had something good to say.. I'll call in a request instead.

Sounds like a pretty good line up. I am disappointed in the choice for the Pulse. And British Invasion on the 60's sounds like some consultant pulled it out of a hat. I am anxious to hear how Sirius handles that.
