Sirius XM has confirmed that staring Nov 1st they are trashing The Bridge and replacing it with Led Zepplin Radio. This will air on Sirius 12 and XM 39 through 12/31.

This sucks. If the Pulse is moving to Channel 12 it is going on hiatus until 2009. As of 11/01 .... The Bridge is GONE. :(


I emailed Jon Zellner about the Bridge and he said it was coming back in January. At the same time I asked about the Loft as that was my favorite when I had XM and he said that it would be on Sirius "soon".

I send an email to Jim Ryan at the Pulse to clarify what the on air staff has been saying in light of the Led Zeppelin info but no response yet.

Well, that is somewhat good to know. It still sucks but at least I know the channel made the cut.

I like the Coffeehouse a lot too and hoping they can live happily, side by side together!
Since I read on one of the boards that XM Cafe wouldn't make the cut, I'm hoping that means Coffeehouse does.

XM Cafe is more like The Spectrum.

Any channel numbers that have been previously talked about are probably out the window.

This should be the first and last major lineup overhaul to get both services' channel line-ups correlated.

Seeing PR for shows on different channels i.e. Sirius 123 / XM 114 should be as limited as possible.

The Pulse shouldn't be moved up it should be Channel 2 it coencides more with Sirius Hits 1.
1. Sirius Hits 1
2. The Pulse
3. Starlite
4. Sirius Love

...and so on. Sirius needs to Group like channels together. I wish Flight 26 was replacing The Pusle.

Don't they already do this?

Pop 1-whatever.
Rock = Teens and 20's.
Techno = 30's
Rap = 40's and 50's

And so forth.

Maybe they could further do it...
First Wave, Lithium, Alt Nation...oldest to newest
Shade 45 and the similar channel side by side.

Right now, it's pretty good.

Yeah they already group channels, but I think they will have to do some regrouping for various reasons. I think Sirius's system limits the number of categories they can have, whereas XM doesn't have this issue. Then againt his limit maybe due to older tuners more so than the system because it seems that my new tuners have many more categories than my old ones.

I am just happy to hear the Pulse is staying.. This is a good thing!

Yeah, the Stilettos have categories for Howard, Martha, and whatnot.

When I had a Sportster, it grouped Howard in with the news/talk and sometimes Entertainment categories.
