    Sirius Disorder was one of my favorite presets. I am finally getting around to giving The Loft a good listen. I was wondering whether some of you have already given The Loft a good listen. Do you find they are much different? Do you think they are about the same? Do you think Disorder was better? One thing I noted is there is still no home (at least that I am aware of) for Celtic Crush. Hopefully, they can find a home for it somewhere. Along with a traditional folk channel, Celtic music is a missing yet IMO popular genre that is missing on Sirius. If we can't get a dedicated channel, it seems to me that The Loft might be a home for at least some programming in these areas.

    I thought Celtic Crush was revived, but on a different channel?

    I love Meg's taste and have been enjoying her daytime spot on The Loft. I'm not a fan of Celtic Crush or even Idiot's Delight, but I'm glad they brought back any scraps of one of the best Sirius channels.

    I wonder if there will be any creative control to limit Meg's show Disorder within the format of its new channel. The Loft seems to have a "lighter" mood/tone, and slightly less 'innovative' playlists than Sirius Disorder did.

    I'm glad the brought Meg Griffin back, but you'll notice it's not for all the hours stated in the original blurb. Her show starts later in the afternoon than what they said it would be.

    It's NOT Disorder but it has improved. Playing more of the softer, lighter music you would hear on Disorder.

    Meg's show is a bit neutered but it's still good.
