I listened to Christine. This is good stuff. I usually like tunes that come out of old shows and movies. I'm surprised and disappointed with myself for never giving this channel a chance before.

I had this as a preset until a few weeks ago, and realized I never was tuning in. I did listen to it @ work for WTD, and while it was decent background music, I really didn't hear anything I really liked. I guess it's one of those channels that is hit-or-miss for casual fans. 3 stars.

I give you two channel reviews for the price of one...

This is maybe the 4th or 5th attempt I've made to give this channel a preset over the years in hopes of liking this stuff, but it's just not for me. I'm not into musicals. I'm glad this channel is here though, because it's not the kind of stuff you ever hear on FM.

My mom, on the other hand, loves this one. My parents just started subscribing to XM last Christmas. On Broadway has quickly become my mom's favorite. She says the repetition is not bad at all, and enjoys when they sometimes play a full musical.

3 stars

Not my favorite music. Some of the songs are great. Worth listening to. A lot of the classics. Not into the newer musicals. Seth Rudetsky is very knowledgeable...:)

4 out of 5 Stars...:cool:
