I love this channel. I do not listen as much as I should. I love the acoustic cuts from various artists.

5 of 5 stars :flex:

Not my favorite channel by any means. I almost fell asleep trying to listen for an hour or so :shock:

Some of the songs were cool. They had a set with Jewel. I liked that. The channel is lined up pretty well :)

I'm just not into this music for any length of time :worried:

3 out of 5 Stars :)

For a channel with coffee in the name, you would think it would play more upbeat music.... :confused: :p

I have been listening for about 2 hours. What can I say that has hasn't been said. Yes, it's acoustic versions of songs. Yes, it is calming to the point of almost putting you to sleep. Yes, it would be good for Doctor and Dentists offices to calm people.

I could see listening to this maybe on a lazy weekend or afternoon when your main goal is to catch a nap. As a play-at-work, it doesn't work for me. I gave it 3 stars.

This is one of the most difficult listens for me in all the pop/rock category. I like some of the cover versions of older songs, but for me that's about it. John Mayer, David Gray, etc... I usually avoid that kinda stuff. :icon_eek:

This is not a preset of mine. I had the opportunity to listen a couple weeks back for about 2-3 hours while at a McDonalds with my son. It played interesting enough music for me not to just play my SL2 which is what I normally do. I may treat this as a backup to The Bridge but this is not as soothing as that.

I give it 4 stars.

Station of choice when the in-laws are driving with me. Safe channel without profanity or anything too heavy. Not a preset, but a good alternative every once in a while.

I like tuning to this if I want to hear something mellow and sometimes rare stuff. It's a good alternative for me to something more calming like Chill, because I actually know some of these songs but its still mellow enough to fall asleep to or just have on and enjoy.

Good channel

I should give it a listen but I have to admit that I've been prejudiced because of the pretentious and pompous people that hang out in those kind of places.
