Then why have a satellite radio service if you aren't going to cater to 'niche' formats that people would gladly pay to hear? Both services are just FM formats without commercials (oh wait, XM has commercials), and aren't worthy of paying $5 a month for, much less $13. And it's attitudes like that from the people in charge that are a perfect example of why.

I know, I listen to it.

That was my point, if they made a Prog channel that actually played it all, rather than just the few bands from the 70s that the Vault plays, they would get more listeners.

When was the last time Sirius played Shadowgallery, Spock's Beard, or any of the other modern prog bands? Never for either of those.

Dream Theater and Queensryche show up on the metal channels once in a while, that's about it.

Progressive Rock didn't stop in 1979.

Must disagree. There is no Hairnation format on Fm radio.

The city of Cleveland must be behind the progressive rock movement... The Indians just renamed their ballpark "PROGRESSIVE FIELD"!
