Default Play the Channel Swap Game!

We've all complained about losing a channel that we liked, or wished we could add one. Problem is, bandwidth is limited, and adding a new channel means deleting an existing one. So let's have some fun with that dilemma - everybody name a channel they'd like to have (or have back) and which one they'd get rid of to make room for it! 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!

And call 'Outlaw Country' what it is. A southern rock channel with a deeper playlist.

Well to play the game right do you have to delete somewhat like channels. If I had my drothers. I would delete some of the ridiculous talk channels and add more music. I would keep the highbrow "intelligent" talk (am I a snob or what) but get rid of some of the stupid ultra far right/ultra far left/ and ultra dirty and return Vista.
