The Top 1000 Country Hits is now on the Sirius XM app channel 742. I've been trying to annotate the entire playlist. Only got about a quarter so far. It takes about 2.2 days to go through all 1000 songs.

Payola is alive and well on SiriusXM in 2020. According to the website, here is what takes over Channel 30 at 9 AM Eastern time May 1 – and I'm starting to feel Delirious:

"The Prince Channel, featuring music from the vast body of artistry from Prince’s entire career, including his earliest recordings through his most recent release HITnRUN Phase One."
