They should bring back Weather Channel, and also something with soul (Motown/Philly) music; they had one, but I can't receive it now. I really do not need all those rap and hip-hop channels.

Well, out of that list I'd choose Vacation. Not to rain on anyones parade but hell has to freeze over for Sirius to bring back a channel, that's the truth. Although it is always good to hope, and I sure do miss my Vacation.

Well, apparently hell froze over when SIRIUS brought back Soundscapes as both a show on Horizons and as the new channel "spa73. It may have a different name but its still Soundscapes as far as I'm concerned. I still haven't given up hope on Vacation making a return. Sure, it won't happen overnight, but it always takes a while for SIRIUS to gets their head out of their ass and realize what a good thing they once had.

I just noticed that 53 ("Heart & Soul") is back (not sure where it went or what happened); I will check 184 to see what is there. Is it actually from TWC, or just weather info from another source?

I would really like to see folktown make a return. That was a very unique channel and I enjoyed it from time to time. The channel took me from the norm music to what was played on folktown great channel.

Maybe one day we will get our folk music back. (hopefully)

Like I said in another thread, if the channel doesn't return, which it most likely won't, because I don't see as many people pushing it to come back like Soundscapes. However, if nothing else maybe they could do a 24 hour Folktown Day like they did with Soundscapes for a while. I think that would be better than no Folktown. Many of us was happy to even just get 24 hours of Soundscapes on Sundays.

I voted for "Vacation". While I'm a huge Buffett fan and love "Radio Margaritaville", it is nowhere near as fun as the old "Vacation" was. "Vacation" played tons of independent trop-rock artists like Eric Stone, Don Middlebrook and Living Soul, Mark Mulligan, Coconut Bob, Jim Morris, Rick Steffen, etc. that they rarely ever play on "Margaritaville". Also, I LOVED all the Calypso/steel drum music and Hawaiian music that "Vacation" played as well. This also is rarely ever played on "Margaritaville". I definately think there is room for both channels and I would really love to see "Vacation" come back because it featured tons of music that is now heard nowhere else on Sirius. It also seems this channel was very popular and is being missed a lot. Maybe Sirius will listen to the "Vacation" fans like they did the "Soundscapes" fans. Come on Sirius, we want our permanent "VACATION" back!
