  • Suffice to say I'm very disappointed at the situation at 60's on 6. I don't think the format will change back to what it was. Even after SiriusXM turns the corner and starts making a profit. I don't no what I'm going to do. WCBS-FM changed back to the oldies format but they're playlist consist three different decades. The 60's,70's and 80's, which I'm not to crazy about. So if there's anybody out there hoping for the old 60's on 6, Forget about it.

    Today I read a blog from somewhere, I don't remember where. That what I'm listening to is Sirius Radio's version of 60's on 6. They play just the top 40 hits of that decade. That explains alot about why I don't hear the songs I had forgotten about. It doesn't explain the 1969 thing. I guess I'll never figure that one out. Continued............
    I would email they're programming dept. Trying to find out what was going on, but I got no answer from them. I was really frustrated and contemplating canceling my subscription. But I figured I'll wait it out to see if things will get better. Continued............
    And after a couple of songs from oh lets say 1964 and 65, they would go back to 69 again! It was driving me crazy. It's still drives me crazy! And their playlist seemed to dwindle. They didn't play all those songs I had forgotten about. Continued..................
    But what really pissed me off was that they started playing a lot of songs from the year 1969 as compared to rest of the decade. That was not a particularly good year for me and I hated most of the music from that year. Anyway, It seemed that everytime I turn on 60's on 6. They're playing songs from 1969! I was wondering why I didn't hear songs from 1963 on up.

    When I signed on to XM and tuned to the 60's on 6 channel. I couldn't believe all songs they played. I heard music that I had forgotten about. It was great! Better then what WCBS-FM had to offer before the format change. But since the merger of XM and Sirius. I noticed a disturbing change in the format. First, They stopped playing Beatles songs on the hour every hour. No more "Chicken Man". I didn't hear the "Number 1 now and then" anymore. And the different radio stations from all over the country back in the 60,s on Friday nights were no more. Continued.....................................
    As an avid fan of oldies music. I used to listen to WCBS-FM in New York. When they changed the format to Jack radio back in 2005. there were no more oldies station to listen too anymore. So I decided to get satellite radio. I picked XM Radio because I wanted to hear "Opie and Anthony" as opposed to "Howard Stern" on Sirius Radio becaused I grew tried of him when he was on WXRK-FM (KRock).
