Nice picture of Lisa Loeb. I like Cafe music. And with this station set up for artist discovery, recent deeper playlist, I could use this station to keep up with different artists. I keep my own channels closed off to artist discovery.

Which poses a question. If the originator of this station, in this case Mike V, decides to delete this channel, would it disappear from my folder?

If you just have it saved to favorites and he deletes it then YES, it would disappear. If you click on customize and save as or save then it would save it to your customized list. This would mean any changes he continues to make would not longer be ported to the one you've saved to your custom channels. However, as long as he doesn't delete it and you want to listen to it via the web, you are good. If you decide to you want it on a Slacker portable though you HAVE to save it as it will not load on the Slacker G1/G2 without being saved to your custom channels. It would work via Blackberry or iPod/iPhone as just a favorite.

Right now I just save them as favorites and listen via my iPod Touch, then if I decide to keep them I save them as custom stations. If I dont' keep them I will eventually delete them from my favorites and they go bye bye.

This is a very well programmed station, I really appreciated it a great deal and enjoyed the big playlist. Much of the music from was from XM Cafe I think.

While this one won't make it on my G2, I have saved it as a favorite and will enjoy listening to it form time to time.

I left all the settings to the defaults that Mike had setup.

I couldn't reeally get into it, the music was a little too slow for my tastes. Great for relaxing though, I can see myself using it to try to fall asleep sometime.
