For those of us who like more than one genre of music, its a great channel to have. For those of you who only basically listen to one type of music, it wont be for you...there are dozens of other choices for you.

I'm loving the station. Sorry, people - but they need to play hip hop and dance. A little here and there. I've seen them play Positive K and Captain Hollywood Project. Both fun hiphop an dance songs that fit perfectly in the mix. It's a great station and definitely in my presets.

Yeah, this channel keeps getting better and better each day. The playlist seems to be expanding to include more and more titles and genres. I'm loving this channel and it has a permanent preset on Band A of my tuner now.
Also, as far as the person who was saying this is just like FM's "Jack" format. Well, actually it's quite a bit broader than any "Jack FM" station I've heard yet. It has the same feel and concept to it, but most "Jack" stations wouldn't include things like Frank Sinatra, Reggae, or Hip Hop. "Super Shuffle" is kind of the same idea, but it is much more varied and deeper than the traditional "Jack" format on most FM stations. Great job Sirius. This is definately the best of the new channels.

After listening again today for about 2 hours I haven't heard anything new, it is all older songs. I'd say 60-70% of it being classic rock.

I agree that the second day was MUCH better! I like the Shuffle format to be honest, especially at work where I'm listening for several hours and don't always have the time to change channels for a little variation during the day.

Good channel, IMHO!

Default YEAH!!

Sirius, thanks for listening!

THANK YOU for the format tweaks!! I think this is a SOLID station that I'll be listening to quite a bit!! I want to change my vote!! I think the accasional 'friendly' pop-rap/urban from the 80s/90s is a nice addition to the mix. Nice to see a little more 90s pop added too.

Being the metal fan I am, I think they could throw a tad of metal in there...but Im sure they wont. Im talking about something like Enter Sandman from Metallica, that wouldnt hurt anybody.

Well I just heard AC/DC's BIG BALLS! Does that count as a metal tune?

I think this channel is sounding better and better. Regardless of what SISO says I have heard new music, they just aren't playing it every other song like he would like.

Im sorta suprised they even played that. I can appreciate the fact that I've also been hearing live cuts of songs, which is something I wouldnt have expected on a channel like this.

I decided to go back and do a search to see if any metal was getting played on this channel. The harded stuff seems to be things like Van Halen. I was shocked to see a song from Danzig on there!! The devil himself! lol. The song was "Mother". I hate I missed that.

While the channel has been improving, there remain a few issues. I've heard three different Slaughter songs in the past two days (they aren't shuffling hard enough). Earlier today one of the bumpers said, "Locked on Christian" or something to that effect, and the song that played was something from Alt Nation.

On the plus side, I heard Warren G's "Regulate" and a Daft Punk song, so they are certainly playing more than classic rock and decades.
