The Ramones weren't just a punk band: for many, they epitomized everything cool about punk rock. Listen Saturday nights as long-time drummer Marky Ramone plays live, rare and archival Ramones material, plus music that influenced the band and classic and contemporary punk. He'll also host live in-studio guests and take calls from listeners. That could be you... talking to one of the Ramones. Pretty cool.

Husband-and-wife folk-pop recording artists Pete and Maura Kennedy have released seven albums since 1995, and their smart songs and engaging live performances have earned them fans in concerts, cafes and coffeehouses across the US. They now share their unabridged love of folk music with SIRIUS Disorder listeners each Saturday and Sunday morning.

Larry draws from his private record collection for this three hour soulful mix of traditional and contemporary music from the Celtic countries and England.

I don't need a lot of time to comment on this channel. It has been one of my favorites and presets for a long time. I love the wide open variety. The programs are very interesting and I actually love all the info these DJ's pass along. Meg is a music lover and you can tell it in all she does. In fact I'd say all the folks that work on this channel probably are.

Vince is another of my very favorites, he is so down to earn and just lays it out there, he plays some great mixes.

There has been a lot of music I've discovered on this channel that I really, really like.

I'd be so, so very upset if they ever removed this channel!

I'm not sure what to think yet. I have spent some time on Disorder this week. The music is pretty unclassifiable--which is the point. I could see this becoming a regularly-listened to channel. Very different stuff. Definitely not something that could be heard anywhere else. I also thought it was pretty cool listening to Marky Ramone last night.

I like this station more than I thought I would. A good variety of music, much of which is quite interesting. I"ll remember this channel and tune back in every now and then for something different.

I've listened to this station in the past for a few minutes whenever I was alerted a song I liked wound up on it. I listened last night and a bit today and found it to play a few other songs I enjoyed that are a bit older or obscure for the regular rock stations I frequent.

However, on the whole I wouldn't turn this on and leave it on for a few hours, I beleive. I find it hard to sometimes sit through the rather slower or older songs for 10 minutes, but sometimes its worth it, and I get some good stuff.

This station IS set as a preset for me on my C band, but like I said, not a regular station, but something I can enjoy on occasion. They throw in some odd songs from genres I don't usually consider myself a fan of, but I enjoy the song.

The Ramones show up on 26 Underground Garage a lot.
As a side note the sound quality seems to be poor on 26. I am guessing their recording method.

I like the David Johannson show. I like to hear what Dick Cheney says every week.

I listened to this channel on Sunday night and didn't really care for it. Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight was on, and all the stuff that was played was a little too 'Folk' songish to me.

I think I will give it another try on a different night, to see if I hear anything I like.

I find this channel to be a limited version of Super Shuffle. It's just a mix channel. I channel surf so much through this thing that I don't need a channel for it.

I guess I had similar thoughts -- like a SuperShuffle of more obscure songs by respected artists or like The Vault without the limitations of the classic rock era?? Either way, I enjoy this channel enough, and has been a "C" preset of mine since I got Sirius. It's unpredictable (I actually heard an Anne Murray song on this channel!) well-programmed, and the DJ's are great.

I dig this channel. It's obviously programmed by music lovers, and you don't know what to expect. You can really learn alot about the artists when you listen. A lot of variation...I agree with the "shuffle" analogy, however much of the time there will be a thread connecting the songs.

This channel I really like, but I don't listen to as much as I should. Contrary to someone upthread, I find that I can listen to Disorder for a long time and not get bored with it. At the same time, I don't often hear anything I really want to crank up, either. I definitely prefer it to SuperShuffle. I heard The Chiffons this afternoon, which I thought was pretty far on the outside of what I would expect to hear, but at the same time not something I'd switch on, so maybe it does fit.

Definite thumbs up to Disorder.

I don't really like rock music--the first time I put on Octane for more than a minute was to Walk The Dog... But I LOVE this channel. The music is very different, but always digestable. I find the other "different" rock channels like Underground Garage to be a little hard to take. Disorder is perfect. After Faction, it is definately my favorite rock channel and I need to listen to it a lot more. This is the type of channel that makes Sirius so great, in my opinion.
