    Personally, I like the 80s station, because I grew up with the MTV Vjs and I love the fact that I can hear them on this channel. But I also listen to the 70s and 90s quite a bit too. BTW, I have allowed multiple choice on this poll in case you really like more than one of them.

    I prefer the fun feeling of 60s on 6, with Phalsh & Motormouth, with Cousin Brucie thrown in. I also love the 70s and their jocks who rank a close 2nd. The deeper 60s playlists are a huge plus with the merger!!

    I like the evens. 40's, 60's, 80's and now Pop2k. But spend much more time listening to the non decade channels.

    I do like the 80s music, but I could do without the droning of those awful VJ's. Nina Blackwood is about the worst I've ever heard.

    The 70's

    Magic Matt and JJ are great to listen to. Are these guys voicetracked? I do say I like Pop 2K as well--although the repetition is great--too much Coldplay.

    For me at the moment it is the 90's on 9 and the 80's on 8 , I have had those stations on the last few days since the change.

    IMHO, the 80's channel is in a bit of a funk. It seems to have no "energy". Kind of bland.

    I voted 70s but I would have added 80s had I realized it was multiple choice.

    I voted 90s just because I am still loving the fact that Sirius has a 90s only channel, and with a large playlist that includes rap/hip-hop. I can probably recite the Pulse's 90s songs by heart. I am a bit confused as to what Pop2K wants to be. It plays a lot of current music (07/08), when I figured it'd include more earlier stuff from the decade, so as to differentiate itself from Hits 1. I guess it'll take time to find its niche.

    I love the new 80s playlist! Today on my work break I got to hear "Da Butt" by EU...something the Big 80s on Sirius would've NEVER played! I also love the 90s channel's big playlist. The 70s channel seems about the same as Totally 70s- which was always Sirius's "deepest" decades channel, so I guess that's fine.

    If they keep what XM built on 6 and throw in Cousin Brucie, it should be great.

    80s and 90s were good in the days when Bruce Kelly and Kane respectively were working on them. I've been listening to them today and not liking them as much. 70s used to be a computerized thing because XM said listeners of that format prefer such a thing. I remember NJ Ron or whatever his name was, he liked it more. I never did. It's only okay. Never listened to 50s much. Pop2K is just the Hits 1 retirement home.

    I guess I'd vote for 40s and 60s!

    Yep. I've always thought 60's on 6 (though it has gone downhill a bit IMHO) was much better than 60's Vibrations on Sirius. Glad to see the Cuz showing up on the "new" channel (and on 5 as well).

    I voted for 80's on 8 because I feel it is essentially the same 80's channel that XM had, just now with the MTV VJ's thrown in. I am happy to see that Rick Dees and Casey Kasem shows will continue.
