I would hope they aren't done. What are they playing from 6-10 right now? I wonder what they have in mind? I would think that if they had nothing in mind they would just let Dave Ramsey's show be the 3 hours it really is and fill in holes later. But there are giving Dave 4 hours, so they must have something in teh works from 6-10.

Some people feel the same way about the Young Turks, it's called freedom of choice.

No, that's called an opinion. There is no guaranteed "freedom in choice" in radio. And for those of us who are not conservative and/or Christian, Sirius is providing fewer and fewer choices every day.

And can you point to any advice that HAS NOT been on the topic of cutting up your credit cards and accepting Jesus? I've listened to his show three or four times, and that's all I've heard.

Yeah, I'm with you on this. I love some of the WOR hosts, and am especially a big fan of Dr. Joy Browne. If they would add Dr. Joy Browne, I would listen pretty much every day since my local station no longer carries her show. The travel show they have on weekends was always great too.
Another great show that would fit on this channel is "The Clark Howard" show that is syndicated from WSB Atlanta. He does consumer advice and is kind of similar to Dave Ramsey, but I like Clark's show a lot better. It is more consumer advice and less money and budgeting, and also it isn't so "preachy" and religious like Ramsey's show is.
Also, another good fit for this channel would be Kim Komando's computer show that Sirius airs on the weekends on the Discovery Radio channel. It is also a great show and would fit much better on the Advice channel. Dr. Dean Edell's daily one hour medical advice show would also be a good add for this channel.

Default Advice? Whaaaaa?

This is SO disappointing! This was the channel I was most looking forward to, and it could have been done so well. There are many very good syndicated advice shows out there that I would love to listen to, including:

Dr. Joy Browne
Bruce Williams
Loveline

and so many more that I could even tolerate including:

The Dolans
Jim Cramer
Car Talk
Dr. Laura
Kim Kommando
Dean Adell
Bob Brinker
Bill Handel

There also used to be a 12-step recovery program in Canada that I used to listen to that would be interesting late at night.

Instead, Sirius through Dave Ramsey together with a hodgepodge of personality shows that have little to no advice content and random other shows that they couldn't find a place for. I mean, come on!

I live in the Central time zone. That means that my morning drive would be Kid's Corner and my afternoon drive is World Cafe, a music show! Don't we already have 2 kids stations and about 70 music stations that would be a better fit for this show?

And the other shows on the schedule are NOT advice shows! Doug Stephan's Good Day? Chick Chat? Mike Feder? Radio Playbill? Cigar Dave?

Listen very carefully, Sirius...this is the format of an ADVICE Show!

:05-:10 - Show intro and possible monologue
:10-:30 - Take calls and answer questions
:30-:32 - optional gimmicky segment
:32-:00 - More calls and answers
:00-:05 - Break for network news.

If your show doesn't look remotely like this, it shouldn't be on this station!

Last time I checked over 2 million a day give a doodad about him, and enough to keep his book on the NY Times bestseller list for a long time. Perhaps if you listened to his show with an open mind you would learn something. Anyways, have fun with a lifetime of debt.

My only issue with Dave Ramsey is that most of his focus is on getting people out of debt. there isn't very much for those of us who are already out of debt or never got themselves in debt.

I like toonces list, except that I would rather listen to the Howard Stern All Dead Air All The Time Channel than Dr. Laura. Luckily, I think her contract with XM is exclusive. Bob Brinker and Bruce Williams are on XM as well, and there may be similar restrictions against carrying them on both services.

I don't get this channel. World Cafe used to be on PRI, which made sense. I think Playbill used to be on Broadway's Best. Chick Chat is just useless. With so many call in advice shows out there, I don't know why Sirius can't pick some of them up.

Bob Brinker is on ABC News and Talk currently, but you could replay 1-2 hour/day of his 6 weekend hours for the following week (the same applies to other weekend advice shows, if we're that starved for content). Also, if Bob is on both XM and Sirius, I assume others can be as well.

I agree, I like Dave Ramsey but it would be great to get Bruce Williams and Loveline too.
