Great station. I like the 70s feel of the presentation, and I like the range of music they play...the cool thing about the 70's is that you had all sorts of songs that were hits...rock, disco, R&B, country, etc. You get a little of everything.

Unlike XM, there are not really too many songs that come along that I've never heard of. I do think it's cool that XM is running the old AT 40 shows...but Hoeffel's shows are good.

One problem for me is Barry Williams. He is so stiff, and to be honest, I think his presentation is horrible. It was cute for about 5 seconds...now it is just painful to hear. If he's supposed to be funny and witty, I just don't get it. I could get on there and do a better job.

This is an ok station but not a preset for me. I have other presets that cover it for the most part. I like funk from the 70's mostly which I get between Soultown and Heart & Soul. The firstr one I like better. It definitely presents a good mix, but usually I'm in the mood for one type of 70's music at a time.

I like the music of the '70's, but the #1 reason I like Totally '70s is Dave Hoeffel's SuperSounds Totally 70's Satellite Survey! Hoeffel is a pleasure to listen to, and gives plenty of additional information to enhance the countdown. Tremendous. Having been only 8 when the '70s ended, I pick up a ton of songs I haven't heard before.

I listened to the station for a 1/2 hour today. The station is good, but I would only listen it once a while.

I'm going to give it a 4 plus. I really enjoy listening to Totally 70's. However, I think they play just a bit too much classic rock. This music would have probably been played on AOR (album oriented rock) stations. Still, I really enjoy going to this station. I've made it a preset every now and then. I try to spread out my presets so I'll change Totally 70's out with Movin EZ or Sirius Gold every now and then although I enjoy these stations.

I'll be back and often.

Totally 70s has improved greatly over the past couple years (many of you will know what we went thru to get those changes) It is one of my presets, I like the mix of 70s and the Juke Box from Hell tunes (even tho I disagree with most of them being hellish). The jocks (except Barry Williams ) are outstanding..... one of the best Sirius has IMHO.

Totally 70's is one of my favorite channels on Sirius. I like how they cover pretty much the full spectrum of songs that were popular in the 1970's. This is far better than the 1970's FM station we had in New Orleans about 10 years ago. I would guess that Totally 70's has one of the biggest playlists on Sirius. They do a good job of giving us the best (and sometimes the worst) that the 1970's had to offer.

Groovy, and Far-out!

This is my least favorite of the "decade" channels. But even so, it's still pretty good. It's just that there's a high percentage of cheesy one-hit wonder songs that don't deserve to be heard as often as they are. And I agree that Barry Williams should be let go - he's terrible. I can't imagine he gets anyone to subscribe - if anything, he'll get people to cancel.

This is one of my "Only on the weekend" Channels. If I listen to it, it's only because I have nothing else to listen to.

It's not a bad channel. There are some good songs that came out of the '70s. They play some good stuff. I just like the other decade channels more...

Loved it!

Really enjoyed listening to this station. Thought it was great. Love the sound of the 70s, brings me back to when I was a kid. It will be a preset, thats for sure.

A very good channel. From a programming/playlist/repetition standpoint, Siri's best decade channel IMHO. Most of the DJ's are good.

It will continue as one of my "A" presets.
