First time listener to Sirius Hits 1 and well I guess it was ok. The jingles are similiar to a local Top 20 Pop station. Probably the music too. I miss UPop. Which I guess is only available on xm's online service. I would listen to that more.

I enjoy this channel, one of my presets and I listen to it for about an hour or two a week.

I like this channel, but there is far too much repetition on this channel. I know that it plays the more requested song over and over, but they play a lot of stuff that's three or four years old, too. Which wouldn't be a bad thing, but they play them from the same artists that they are playing new stuff now.

Adding dumb stuff to the group name/title of the song is kinda dumb, too. If it's ear poppin, fine. I'll be the judge of that.

The Morning Mash Up crew is ok. Maybe too may people. They should just have two people and that's it. I think I heard four this morning. That's a zoo, not a mash...:shock:

Play a wider variety of new songs with less repetition, and I'll like this channel more. Three out of five stars...:)

It would be so easy for me to trash this music, and say it's not as good as the music I like from the 60's - 80's. But, I won't do that... I'll leave that job to others. :icon_wink:

Some of what I heard here was not so bad, but I won't be making this a preset any time soon.

Has been one of my presets from the start, however after the channel merger, Pop2k has started to compete for my hit music listening time, as it has a lot deeper of a playlist.

A couple of improvements are less repetition of tracks (and the weekend countdown on the weekends).

I like to record the top 45 hits every Saturday and play it back during the week. The repeats are too bad and the Morning Mash is entertaining.

I'm shifting between Hits 1 and BPM right now (giving them one more chance)... I'll let you know how it goes in a bit.

EDIT: Yeah, I was pretty much right about this one in the first place. Moving on to BPM...

While their countdown show is good, their playlist and format is no different from an FM-styled station. And then I hate that awful & brainless Morning Mash-Up Crew. :bigahh:

I'll take Pop2K over Hits 1 anytime. This channel has grown so stale that as far as I am concern someone can stick a fork in it, because it is done!

Where's the variety?

It seems that when I listened, the types of songs played were heavilly weighted towards the pseudo-rock bands like Nickelback, Linkin Park or Hinder. So much of it sounds so similar. I would like to see the top-40 channel be a little more broad in the song selection.

Personally, I think those kinds of rock bands are pretty lame. There are maybe one or two Nickelback songs I like, but I'm not a huge fan. I don't know if this channel is what I would find on my local FM top-40 channel, but I would expect more variety in the types of songs.
