Default Why is the Vault plugging The Spectrum?

I've noticed over the last week, some song titles playing on the Vault have had stuff like - (Also on The Spectrum 18) after them.

A while ago, I heard an Elton John song and after the song title it said (NEW, Elton John plays on Spectrum/18).

Now I'm listening to a Bob Dylan song and it says (NEW, Dylan plays on Spectrum/18)

I looked on The Spectrum page on the Sirius website and there's nothing about this NEW stuff..

I just noticed that they're doing this on Classic Vinyl too.......

What's up with this

Because there's lots of new listeners here now who don't know their way around...just little sign posts to like music.

There are always new users.. I was new three years ago I figured out what was playing on the channels and which ones I liked.

I'm just listening to a Bob Seger song on Classic Rewind and they've got the Spectrum plug on the song title for that song too.

It seems ALL the rock channels are plugging the Spectrum.. You think they're doing this just so new listeners will listen to the Spectrum?

I guess, as lp said, they're just letting us know where to find the newer music being made by the classic rock artists. The Spectrum is one of the few channels that will actually play new stuff from Paul Simon, Bob Seger, etc.

I think its a great idea, there are probably a lot more people than you think that just listen to "Classic Rewind" or "The Vault" that dont bother listening to the Spectrum BECAUSE they play new stuff that they dont know, there are a lot of people out there that are "stuck" in the decades or older channels IMO.

But, Why don't they tell listeners that Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton can be heard on Sirus Blues? What's the need to promote ONLY The Spectrum?

That's what I'm wondering Is Sirius losing money or subscribers because of a lack of Spectrum listeners?

I think you are reading WAY TOO FAR into this. A lot of stations plug other stations.
