Does Slacker have a 80's channel?

    I've been playing around with it since last night. I like what I see so far. I see they have a 80's rock channel but do they have a 80's channel like the big 80's channel on Sirius, without the MTV dj's?

    When I click on the stations button, I'm assuming that is the total list, is that correct? I thought there would be more choices.

    I just found this website not long ago, it this place under the same ownership as SBS or is it different?

    Look under the "Hits" category. They have a station called 80's Hits.

    DRC has different ownership than SBS had, although they've bought SBS since they opened. Many of the same faces are still in charge, with some great additions from TSS.

    RR, thanks for the reply. I didn't even click on the "hits" category before. I just clicked on it, giving it a try.

    the station button assuming you have the portable are the ones on your player
    they have more stations you can add to the player

    I also find that the web player has some issues where sometimes the music category will appear empty and you must actually reload it to get the stations to show up in the category.

    I initially found the '80s channel on Slacker to be way to deep for my taste. But once I tweaked it using fine tuning it is now much more to my liking. However, I don't have this channel on my Slacker G2 portable as I actually prefer the '80s, '90s and Today Hits Station better overall. But if you want just '80s its a good one.
