I have had both services for a while with XM at home thur DirecTV and Sirius SL2 on the go. I was really happy when Sirius went to the XM music format on 6 because of the DJ's, Phash Phelps and Terry Young and all of the specials like "Sweet 16 Music Machine" "Number 1 now and then" and I even enjoyed Terry's Friday afternoon AM radio shows. The above mentioned made 60's on 6 the best channel on XM or Sirius for me. Would like to see things changed back.

As an avid fan of oldies music. I used to listen to WCBS-FM in New York. When they changed the format to Jack radio back in 2005. there were no more oldies station to listen too anymore. So I decided to get satellite radio. I picked XM Radio because I wanted to hear "Opie and Anthony" as opposed to "Howard Stern" on Sirius Radio becaused I grew tried of him when he was on WXRK-FM (KRock).

When I signed on to XM and tuned to the 60's on 6 channel. I couldn't believe all songs they played. I heard music that I had forgotten about. It was great! Better then what WCBS-FM had to offer before the format change. But since the merger of XM and Sirius. I noticed a disturbing change in the format. First, They stopped playing Beatles songs on the hour every hour. No more "Chicken Man". I didn't hear the "Number 1 now and then" anymore. And the different radio stations from all over the country back in the 60,s on Friday nights were no more. Continued.....................................

But what really pissed me off was that they're playing a lot of songs from the year 1969 as compared to rest of the decade. That was not a particularly good year for me and I hated most of the music from that year. Anyway, It seemed that everytime I turn on 60's on 6. They're playing songs from 1969! I was wondering why I didn't hear songs from 1963 on up. Continued................................

And after a couple of songs from oh lets say 1964 and 65, they would go back to 69 again! It was driving me crazy. It's still drives me crazy! And their playlist seemed to dwindle. They didn't play all those songs I had forgotten about. Continued.............................

I would email they're programming dept. Trying to find out what was going on, but I got no answer from them. I was really frustrated and contemplating canceling my subscription. But I figured I'll wait it out to see if things will get better. Continued........................

Today I read a blog from somewhere, I don't remember where. That what I'm listening to is Sirius Radio's version of 60's on 6. They play just the top 40 hits of that decade. That explains alot about why I don't hear the songs I had forgotten about. It doesn't explain the 1969 thing. I guess I'll never figure that one out. Continued.............................

Suffice to say I'm very disappointed at the situation at 60's on 6. I don't think the format will change back to what it was. Even after SiriusXM turns the corner and starts making a profit. I don't no what I'm going to do. WCBS-FM changed back to the oldies format but they're playlist consist three different decades. The 60's,70's and 80's, which I'm not to crazy about. So if there's anybody out there hoping for the old 60's on 6, Forget about it.

I guess you are seeing the picture, the big wigs have made up their minds, they are not going to give the paying customer what they want, they are giving the cheapest, things are not going to change, I have read too many articles where people are so upset over all the change, guys, get use to it, what you see is what you get, and that is junk in my eyes. They only have Cousin Brucie to fall back on and using him to try and reel in the customers, the Cuz only plays so many songs also, after awhile, that grows old, his Wednesday night shows at least he plays more doo wop and oldies, Saturday nights is the same old same old songs over and over. Go online to www:WJRZ.com and you will hear great music free. Saturday is oldies and doo wop amd Sunday nights is TJ Lubinsky with a mix from the 50's to the 80's and all request!!!! He turns any kind of music into magic. Sirius has me:eek:
