Darn it!!

I am new to Sirius and sat radio in general. I just ordered my radio and have it on its way. I haven't even activated my subscription yet and I can't wait to partake in Walk The Dog. What a great idea.

In the meantime, i will be reading to find out what people are thinking of the channels...

I'm gonna let them stream in my office for awhile each day.

Don't forget to take a plastic bag with you on your walk:

If it's possible, could we set up a poll for each channel, so everyone could give a rating from 1 to 10 for that channel? At the end, you could calculate the average rating. Then after we Walk the Dog with all channels, we'd have a ranking of all channels according to SBS. I wish I suggested this before we opened the initial threads, but I think it would be a good way to quantify how much the group likes each channel.

there actually is a feature set up to rate each thread. Its at the top of each thread right above where you can select a page within the thread. its based on a rating of 1-5 and it automatically calculates the average score. I think for now this is adequate for rating each channel although if enough people show an interest in walk the dog and vote this way I'll definatly consider setting up an actual poll for future weeks.

I like the thread rating system as a way to rate the channel

Thanks for bringing this feature back to SBS! I think this gives listeners a chance to listen to channels that they would not normally listen to.

Personally, I have a wide range in my music tastes, but this may expand it more!

I am happy to mention that I have added Left of Center to one of my presets. Its a really good station. I was subjected to New Country this past weekend, and I still stand firm...I can't stand country music!! Classical voices will be tried this week!

Good call on bringing back Walk the Dog!!!

I think as long as Sirius keeps adding subscribers it makes sense to keep this feature around and keep cycling back.

Default great week 1 turnout.

Wow. I gotta say that I'm impressed with the amount of positive feedback and participation walk the dog has received so far. The week 2 channels will be posted sometime later today and stickied so they will remain on top with week one channels being open for anyone who wants to continue discussion about them.

I enjoyed Week 1 of "Walk The Dog". New Country I am a big fan of, Left of Center I'm surprise I kinda like it, I could listen to it again. But Classical Voices not a fan of. Looking forward for Week 2!

Actully, I'd told soxnationonline that having 5 sticky threads, without the ability to keep this one and the preset thread at the top, doesn't look right. Plus, people know we're in week 2 and week 1 is over. There isn't any point in locking the threads from week 1, so just look for the ones that say the newest week.

I'm searching for a way to make a sticky always remain above others.

soxnation,
Man, you're doing a good job picking channels that I wouldn't normally touch with a ten-foot-pole. Hip-hop, classical voices, new country, Canadian French music. I can't wait to see what the next week brings.

Keep 'em coming. I'm up for your challenge.
