Default Michael Jackson Monday??

Hmmm I got some newsletter the other day from Sirius stating there was going to be 24hrs of Michael Jackson music on "Soul Revue"?? channel 53.

No such music as of now 1:23pmEST.

Any reasoning why no MJ?

Thanks

I heard a couple of older MJ tracks earlier today followed by the DJ wishing him a happy 47th birthday. I think they're just randomly playing his stuff throughout the day between other songs.

Because there are still a lot of people that like his music, i'm not one of them, but people do like him. I just laugh now whenever I hear him.

Sirius has a whole channel of Elvis, I'll never understand why, even though I know people like him. I think they are both damaged goods.

I'm surprise they don't give him a channel yet, they did make one for The Rolling Stones for a month.

I also got excited for this and was confused to here some other things on this channel. I really like MJ's music. I don't really like him because.... well.... because he is a wacko.

On the Sirius web page, they indicated that the 24 hour celebration of MJ's birthday would consist of 1 song every hour.. Most were played at the top of the hour.

The theme was "To celebrate what Michael Jackson was".. He had some good tunes.. He may be a flake now, but I still like his older stuff.. (Pre Thriller)..

24 songs over a 24 hr period was no big deal, but at least the thought was there
