PLUSES: 1) The Canadian music channels are still there. I'd rather have the uniqueness of Iceberg and CBC Radio 3 than the Clear Channel stuff that has material similar to things we already have...with commercials. 2) WE FINALLY HAVE AN ALL 90s CHANNEL! IT'S ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME! 3) I like the additions of the 40s channel and Pop 2K. 4) The Beat was terrible...nice to see it replaced with BPM. 5) Overall, in dupicate channels situations, the best channel normally survived...with one BIG exception (see below). 6) They were smart enough to keep the MTV VJs on the 80s channel. 7) We now have the Books channel on Sirius (Sonic Theater I think it is called). 8) I'm glad Sirius Hits 1 was kept istead on replacing it with 20 on 20. 20 on 20 plays the same songs ad nauseum. MINUSES: 1) What happened to Classic Dance and Old Skool Hip-Hop? It is an absolute abomination that theses genres were just totally eliminated. Even if you don't like this type of music, you have to admit that this is content that should have a place on satellite radio. 2) Why do we still need The Pulse? We already have 90s on 9, Pop 2K, and Hits 1. The Blend is also similar to The Pulse. Why not free up some bandwidth for a Classic Dance or Old School Hip-Hop Channel, or bring back a punk channel. 3) All those darn single artist channels survived the merger to take up bandwidth. I know AC/DC radio and Led Zepplin Radio are temporary, but we just don't need to have channels devoted to just one band/artist! Elvis, I can kind of understand. He was the King of Rock N' Roll, and he made oodles of music. But I don't understand keeping E-Street Radio, and I really wish they'd just play Greatful Dead stuff on Jam-ON and get rid of their exdclusive channel for something better. 4) Why do we have both Coffee House and The Loft...aren't they the same? (acoustic rock by singer-songwriters. 5) Punk was not brought back. Again, even if you don't like this music personally, it has its place on sat. radio. 6) Why in the hell was Lithium kept over Lucy? Lithium sucks! Lucy was much better. They could have kept the Lithium name if they had just programmed it like Lucy was, but that's not happening either. A glaringly bad choice.
