I will consider adding some of those. I already have "The Geto Boys", but I don't have the others- though you'd probably hear some of those artists on there anyway right now as they are "similar" artisits to the seeds I have.

FROM SIRIUS, REPLY ABOUT BACKSPIN

Dear Tom,

Thanks for the e-mail.
I appreciate hearing your thoughts on BACKSPIN. Like you, I was a fan of
the channel. The challenge for us has always been that there is limited
room on the network and we had to make some difficult decisions with the
merging of the content from SIRIUS and XM. Please check out the daily
old skool rap show we started on HIP HOP NATION, XM 67, featuring
Grandmaster Flash and Monie Love. Shade 45 also plays a lot of old skool
rap throughout the day. Plus, Subsoniq’s old skool rap show can now be
heard on HIP HOP NATION as well.
Merging the two sets of music channels was a very difficult task, since
so many people were passionate about each service and what they have
been listening to for years. We did our best, based on customer surveys
from both companies, to keep the channels that reached the most
listeners and performed the best in overall satisfaction. And, in some
cases, we actually blended the two channels combining the best
personalities from SIRIUS and XM to create a new combined channel.
Of course, we did have to say goodbye to a few formats to make room for
new ones. The best way to see what your choices are now is to go to
SIRIUS Satellite Radio - The Best Radio On Radio or XM Satellite Radio - America's #1 Satellite Radio Service and download the new channel line-up.
There are many new choices that you now have access to for no additional
subscription fees. Please take the time to scroll through the dial and
see what’s on. You find something you missed or something brand new that
may become a favorite.
Thanks again for writing. I know change is tough and hopefully, you’ll
still see the value in our service to continue as a subscriber.
Best regards,
Jon Zellner

That's a great response. It's a world of difference between a response from a Customer Service Rep and someone who runs the programming.

So instead of having an old skool channel I have to surf different channels and HOPE I find what I want to hear. Slacker is starting to look more appealing everyday. I KNEW Sirius was gonna' fuck up XM's programming. Sirius feels as long as the fans the ROCK channels are happy fuck everyone else. This is why I left Sirius years ago and now their bringing their bullshit to XM. I really don't know how much longer I'm gonna put up with this shit.

At least you got what could be considered a pretty thoughtful response. It's better than the canned email reply you would expect from customer service...but it more or less says the same thing!!
