Delete: either StarLite or Sirius Love (combine into one)

Add: Folktown.

I mean, seriously - is there really that much of a difference between Starlite and Sirius Love that if one were deleted, we'd hear more than a handful of complaints? Meanwhile, the one channel representing the entire genre of folk music is gone, and it's obvious that a lot of people are upset. Which would result in more people switching to XM - dropping Starlite or dropping Folktown?

This would be my choice #2. All major genres get one channel before any get two!

StarLite and Sirius Love are 2 different channels

Outside HipHop, those are my next favorite channels.

and what's with everyone killing off Hip Hop? It's like 17-18 rock stations. Take some of them off and add Wax back.

I stole that from the Democrats. It was from a bumper sticker that said "Everybody gets one house before anybody gets two." Habitat for Humanity or some such group.

Like I said in the past with 65 music channels Sirius can cover every genre and still have channels left over to add more rock channels which is Sirius` prefered genre.

How would YOU make the tough choice that Sirius execs have to make?

I'll get us started:

Add The Border (alt country)

Delete Outlaw Country!
How about deleting all country!?
