I also have high concerns about the state of merged channels. Satellite Radio was supposed to be about MUSIC and a breadth of quality choices that commercial radio no longer offers. In their current state, both Sirius and XM have some quality channels that neither other offer. From what is being released it appears that many of the widely popular channels on XM such as Vox Classical / Sacred Choral Voice and Watercolors Smooth Jazz will be cut. Sirius has already cut The Bridge 12 which was one of Sirius's most popular channels in favor of another narrowcasted 24 hour Led Zepplin channel. From what I read, it appears that the worst possible is going to occur: The best XM channels will get cut along with the best Sirius leaving us with tons of hip hop, yip yap and garage metal music. It appears that Satellite Radio is quickly becoming another programming wasteland.
