Default Punk Channel Feedback

- Add DJ's who cater to certain genres within punk
- Add a punk rarities show (ex. Killed By Death)
- Chill with the repeats. Punk has 30+ years of history. We don't need to hear the same Pennywise, Anti-Flag or Against Me! song 10 times a day.
- Expand your catalog and add more international punk
- Remove Rollins Band from your rotation completely

All of these points are valid, but these are the same problems all channels have.

Sirius' music philosophy is More songs you know, more often.

I totally agree with adding some DJ's to the mix. I really enjoy hearing a certain DJ's perspective.

Digging a little deeper into the Punk vaults would be nice as well.

Of all the currently jockless music channels, Punk is the one that most needs DJs added. It has Marky Ramone, whose show is awesome. Add more - and at least one needs to have an English accent.

They should add David Johansen, Handsome Dick Manitoba & Joan Jett on there.

A show with Johnny Lydon (rotton), and let him dictate the playlist. An opportunity to get some punk from the other side of the pond, old and new.

I really want to see a punk rarities show. Get a collector nerd in there with a serious vinyl collection and let him spin old collectibles for a couple hours a week.

I got the idea...Saturday Matinee. An all NYHC weekly show that you would have seen at CBGB back in the day. Get Jimmy G from Murphy's Law to host it.

BTW, dump the Rollins Band? Umm, no fuckin way!

I'm a new dual-sub to Sirius. One of the reasons I got it was channel 29. And the best thing about channel 29 compared to XM's Fungus 53: no annoying DJ.

Both channels repeat out the ass...and they repeat the same stuff. XM tends to have a lot more Dead Kennedys, where Sirius seems to like Anti-Flag. Just a matter of taste for the programming director. Another criticism of XM is that they overplay some of Lars Fredriksen's protege bands who aren't really that good. The great thing about Sirius here is that there's more music and hardly any talk.

But the first poster is right. Punk has been around a little over 30 years. It's also something that's worldwide. There's no excuse for either station to run out of good material and go to an excess of repeats.

But where XM has the edge is the special shows on 53. There's a ska show, a surf rock show, a covers show, an industrial show, and psychobilly shows. This is where they shine. The "personality" shows like "rancid radio" and "complete control" are really just more of the same, but the special music shows give the channel some variety.

Oh no, not Anti Flag. That's one band that will get me to change the channel with the quickness (heh, unlike Bad Brains)

The XM punk channel does sound much better.

I agree it has been talked to death, but Sirius isn't likely to change anytime soon. Right now the solution to Sirius' repeats is to get XM to go along with Sirius.

Still think the merger's gonna happen? I just keep thinking "DirecTV and Dish." They had more of a leg to stand on for a merger, competing with cable.

But at any rate, you can look up the most-played tracks on dogstar and it's pretty consistent with my experience. I listen to punk mainly in the car, and it's just weird to hear the same shit every time I get in to go to work or come home.

What I want to hear on either service is either more representation from or a whole show dedicated to small punk bands that never made it to a "big label" status. Ideally this should be international and encompassing all 30 years of the genre....maybe with some emphasis on the older days. Right now, Fungus on XM sounds like Lou Brutus' ipod. Haven't been able to make that informed an opinion on Sirius 29, but it's close.

Not that I expect any change (or response) but I copied some of these comments to the punk channel's e-mail address and pointed them here.

If they're like XM's punk channel DJs, they really don't care what you have to say. I'm optimistic, though.
