I really would like swing street back. I am keeping my XM sub for channel 4 which plays loads of swing and the big bands. In fact it's worth keeping the XM sub just for that one channel. Sirius does a better job in some other depts such as the hip hop and dance selections although wax and remix back would be nice as well.

I still miss Fantasy Ballroom. Hearing modern artists perform classic stand music was absolutely awesome.

(sigh)

Oh! I also still want chamber music back.

Folktown. And while they're at it, dump Sirius Shuffle. And get the NFL stations in one contiguous lineup.

Default Channel you want back.

I want The Globe back...

And Folktown, and Swing Street, and Air America (yeah, I know that one isn't really Sirius' fault).

I wouldn't mind having the Bridge back. I gave E Street radio a shot because I'm a Springsteen fan, but 24 hours is a major reach.

I also don't understand Sirius' reasoning behind these single artist channels. Marketing is one thing, pleasing the subscribers you have now is quite another.

Please bring back Folktown. I miss it a lot, and sent 2 letters to the programming vp's at Sirius. They did not give me the courtesy of a reply.
