The '90s channel.
Sirius, please add a '90s channel.

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.
I agree. I wasn't a huge fan of the Bridge, but I NEVER want to hear another Springsteen song. I'm already burned out on him.

Default Bring Remix 62 Back

I miss this channel the most. This is the STUPIDEST thing sirius has EVER done in my opinion. It has upset MANY MANY dance fans. When I first signed on to sirius in Dec 2003, the dance category was the BEST! Five out of the six dance channels really focused on music dance fans want (House Party, Remix, Planet Dance, The Vortex, The Beat). But now these channels have all been merged into basically TWO channels, AND they added TWO channels that don't appeal to dance fans at all. Boombox DOES NOT belong in the dance category, but they kept it over Remix. Boombox should be in the hip-hop category. Chill is another dance channel that could easily be merged with Spa 73. Dumb sirius!

Default Bring FolkTown back

I vote for bringing back Folktown. Coffehouse just doesn't cut it. It's more like acoustic dental chair music. Doesn't have the breadth of styles that makes folk what it is.

I'd love to see Vortex brought back from the dead. After all the fuss when it was taken down, I'm surprised to see no one has mentioned it.
Ban the FCC!

Bring Back the Vacation Channel! One of the better things that set Sirius apart from XM and broadcast......

Vacation! I love Radio Margaritaville, "but it ain't no Vacation"!
It was very dissapointing to me when they "replaced" Vacation with Radio Margaritaville instead of simply "adding RM. There is a place for both in my opinion and both of them would be tops on my presets!
(Vacation = #1, RM = #2)

Please cast my vote for Folktown. It's one of the reasons I subscribed to Sirius to begin with.

Default FOLKTOWN!!!

FolkTown, FolkTown, FolkTown, has it sunk in yet? Although I must thank the Sirius Programmers for totally disregarding the Folk Genre, for if it wasn't for their lack of insight I never would have given XM a chance. Sure, I'm keeping my Sirius LifeTime Subscription, but my listening time has been severely limited. I'll take in a few Stern Shows, but music-wise I have heard the light, try that one. CoffeeHouse is not an alternative for Folk, and with all the new talents which could easily fit in that format (like Johnson, Mayer, Gray++++) it just didn't make any sense to totally abandon the format.

Also, your 24/7 One Artist Only Channels are inane, I'd think the artists themselves would actually be against it. There's only so much one can take of one artist. Hey, ever hear of Dave Van Ronk, Mitchell or Dylan?

I vote for some sort of Folk Replacement, not a Starbucks Elevator Music Box...s2s
