not to get too off-topic, but reading that description of Folk Town made me realize how much I miss it.

To keep this forum on-topic, new threads will not be allowed except by SIRIUS Backstage staff or soxnationonline, who has been given moderator privilege to to create and stick/unstick threads just this forum.

I suggest a new thread for each channel to be stickied while those channels are active.

I'm definatly down with each channel having its own thread as it seems to be a popular idea.

This way people will be able to listen and post about the channel even after the time has expired and the next dog is being walked, too. The sticky idea RyanM came up with is staring us right in the face. Good call. Looking forward to it. Listening to New Country right now.

The concept behind Walk The Dog is to expand the SIRIUS listening experience beyond your favorite presets and discover all the great and diverse musical genres that SIRIUS has to offer.

The way that Walk The Dog works is every week we will be discovering three new SIRIUS music channels. There will be a channel that is consider popular, one that is considered somewhat popular, and one that is considered not so popular or that some have never tuned into before. Now of course opinions will vary from listener to listener, but the three channels each week will be very diverse so most everyone should have at least one channel that they will be discovering for the first time. <snip></snip>

Hey, we've been duped! That doesn't sound like a soxnationonline post. There's not even a hint of sarcasm in that post...you can't fool me! Who really posted that? Somebody better fess up to this immediately.


Seriously though, I'm not gonna partake in the country one, but all the others sound like a great return to "Walk The Dog".

Welcome to walk the dog deedee

basically we're going to be sampling 3 music channels every week until we've gotten to them all. Don't hesitate to answer any other questions you have. Welcome to walk the dog.

Walk the dog is tougher for me now that Howard is coming back. Wish walk the dog was going on while Howard was on vacation.

Got the S50 gathering some LEFT OF to listen to. I (like Chad) will not be listening to Country. I struggled through the Dixie Chicks on Howard, that's as close as I can get to Country.

This is a great idea.

that's a great idea for any s50 users.


as for not listening to any country - thats your choice but I would suggest trying each channel for the recommended minimum of one hour. By all rights change the channel if the dixie chicks do come on though.

I must say that I myself tend to *despise* country. And while a fan of the classics, I also tend to steer clear of opera.

In preparation last night, I spent a hint of time on both New Country and Classical Voices last night to see if I'm going to be able to stomach it. As it turns out, both channels were tolerable for at least a few minutes.

I'm sure that the return of Walk the Dog will bring the occasional cringe, but I will be giving each channel at least an hour during their featured week. Isn't that what this exercise is all about?

It's interesting to see how many people are unwilling or afraid to listen to certain types of music. I will def. be listening to all 3 for at least 3 hours this week. None of these 3 are on my presets so it will be fun.

I'm glad to see Walk The Dog again. I tend to stick with my presets and forget that there are other channels that I should be checking out. I like LOC and have it as one of my presets, but I will definitely give the other 2 a listen.
