Don't really care for this station since I don't really like this music. But, it is better than new hip hop stuff.

This is a staple of my Sirius music listening. I was at a car club get-together Friday night and I left my stereo playing BackSpin. An hour later, someone asked me if it was a Mix CD I was playing and I said "No, it's Sirius..." and before I said BackSpin 3 other people all chimed in with it.

Road Hog will become famous soon enough

This is another case of there just not being enough hours in a week. I enjoyed this channel, but with all the other things I like to listen to, it's getting hard to find time to squeeze in even more types of music. Sirius just offers way too much!!!

I was a fan of this early rap. I especially like Public Enemy and Run DMC.

Unfortunately, I don't have room to add it as a preset, but I'll try to tune in every now and then.

Totally agree with derek on this one.

I gave it an honest college try with this one during the week. I mean, I really thought I would like this channel (and hoped I would), but in the end, it didn't do it for me. I mean, i grew up with a lot of this stuff too (i am 31), so I smile anytime Run DMC, Public Enemy, Sir Mix A Lot, etc came on, but I found myself suffering through a lot of songs/artists that I didn't know, and just couldn't get into the music. I tried listening to it during various times of the day, but overall, i didn't like it. I don't think I would make it a preset, but i will flip back to it from time to time, to see whats on.

One thing i found too last week, was this wasn't a good station to have on in the background at work (for me anyway). I got too many questions "what ARE you listening to?"

One of my favorites. It's one of my presets (A8). I love to listen to this on the weekends...
