I'm not seeing any of the eight streams related to the CSS application to licence Sirius in Canada. That would include at least three CBC English streams and two CBC French streams. I'm not sure what the others would be.

I also recall considerable support in the past year about having a "Lounge Music" stream.

And a stream called something like "Soundscapes"? I am too noobie to have heard that stream.
When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be somebody.
Now, I realize I should have been more specific.

For starters, they could eliminate the Vault. Everything they're currently playing there could be merged with Classic Vinyl and Classic Rewind.

They could also merge Alt Nation and First Wave into one channel.

That would be the same as merging Sirius Hits 1 with the 80's channel. Heck, why not merge all pop into one channel and all rock into another and free 20 channels

There aren't 15 rock streams. Do you guys really think Reggae Rhythms and Sirius Blues belong in the rock category? I'll bet you one or both of them are moved at the next shuffle.

BTW, TX, your lineup looks good, but doesn't WSM have commercials? I don't think they'd be able to put that in the country category for that reason.

I know that WSM had commercials, that is why they could list it in the entertainment section but give it a number in the low 30's where people could find it.

I would create an ECLECTIC category for Jazz, Blues, Reggae, Horizons, Disorder, etc.

Also a LIFESTYLE category with Faction, Margaritaville and maybe a few others that I've had kicking around my brain (a Faction-esque blend of auto racing, country, and rock to tie in with the NASCAR deal, for instance).

Move Standard Time into Pop (they're called Pop Standards for a reason). Move The Bridge into Rock. Make the Pulse a 90s stream and put in a 21st Century pop stream.
In the dog days, people look to Sirius.
