Artists You'll Hear: Mariah Carey, Green Day, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Janet Jackson, Dave Matthews Band, NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, R.E.M., Barenaked Ladies

I listened to this channel for about an hour Friday night. I have always had Sirius and never XM. I'm 30 years old so I grew up in the 90s (at least as far as music was concerned). I never really thought I had listened to much hits in the 90's but I remembered almost every song played. Perhaps the highlight was learning that I still knew most of the words to "You Can't Touch This!" by MC Hammer...

Anyway, probably won't listen to this channel everyday, but it is a good soundtrack to help me remember those songs in the 90s i listened to on the radio. I thought the playlist was fairly deep...i think i like this station at least as much as the pulse

Is there anyone interested in this description??

Grunge, pop, R&B, rap, and techno with Mariah Carey, Green Day, more.


Wow... there's something there for everyone to hate. Why would anyone that likes Green Day want to hear Mariah Carey??

Green Day had some crossover pop hits back in the 90's...

I thought the playlist for the hour or so i listened was varied, but still in keeping with 90's radio, only deeper

So we have a 90's channel AND the Pulse?
Unfortunately the Pulse seems to only play a few '90s songs each hour since the channel change...I guess to ease the transition for the Flight 26 listeners.

I am really enjoying both channels though...much deeper playlists on both than before.

I've been listening for about an hour, and the songs are familiar but not the sort of songs I would listen to. There were a few good songs, though.

It will remain in my presets along with my Decade presets ('40s-'90s) when I feel like channel surfing.

glad to see WTD brought over. I must say I am loving this channel more then i thought i would. I have already heard a couple of songs i haven't heard since they were released and disappeard into the darkness of night in the early 90's.

I think this is part of what is great about 90s on 9...you remember some of the songs you used to like or hear on the radio. Good channel...probably won't get a lot of my listening time, but certainly something to check out now and again.

I'm glad there a 90's channel back now, I didn't joined Sirius early enough to enjoy I-90 channel. But I already made a preset for this station and I'm enjoying the songs I went to Middle & High School too.

This version is certainly a great improvement over the old version, which was almost totally ignored by XM the past few years, dj-less and on total auto-pilot. It was only listenable for long periods of time during "It." It also used to have Michele from 20 on 20, who has silently disappeared post-merger. :(

The playlist has also drastically improved, playing more of the hits, and less of the sap-fest ballads and obscure songs nobody cares about, of the decade.

I have it as a preset already instead of the pulse, which never was a true 90's channel IMO. So far I have listened to it quite a bit, and liking it.
Agreed. I have both Xm and Sirius and I enjoyed Sirius 90's channel way better then Xm

This was one of the channels I was hoping to see make it on this side from XM, and is now one of my presets. Like the OP I grew up in the 90's and do enjoy listening to most of the songs I grew up listening to. The Pulse served this purpose before and still is a preset but man, the play some weird shit sometimes.

I always wished we had a pure 90's channel on Sirius, and now we do. Listened for about an hour tonite and enjoyed it for the most part. Some slower or weird songs I never liked to begin with, but for the most part, it has proven to live up to my expectations of a 90's channel. Lot's of songs I forgot I liked, and some I just discovered the name of. I am only 20, so I was little in the early 90's, but This is the music I remember hearing ont he way to school or staying up late at night hearing the 'top 9 and 9' countdown on the radio on my local hits station.

Overall, it's getting a spot on my A band presets.

I really can't spend too much time on the 90's channel. There is too much dance / r&b type stuff. The 90's were the worst decade for pop music IMO. :rolleyes:
I enjoyed a lot of the rock and grunge, but the pop music was the pits.

This is kind of a mixed bag for me. There is stuff that I like, but I just don't get the nostalgia-tug like I do with the 80's and 70's. The decade probably more represents my musical tastes shifting away from the Pop scene. I seem to identify much more with Lithium when it comes to the 90's.

I could be completely off base with this though......

I think this version of the 90's on 9 is much better than the previous XM-only version. I like having DJ's back on the air. It gives the channel more personality...an identity. The other decade pop channels have them, no reason the 90's can't have them as well.

I also feel the playlist is deeper now than it was on XM. Maybe I haven't listened long enough, but I haven't heard many repeats yet.
