    Is anyone else wondering what they have in store for this channel? Other than needing a new name and brand, the current schedule seems a little thin. It seems this channel is going to be a new male oriented talk channel independent of the Howard and Virus brands. What would you like to see on the channel?

    Technology! Something from the TWiT and Rev3 networks. Bring Leo Laporte's weekly XM show over (if he still has one) and maybe even add something like Security Now. As for Rev3, put on Diggnation and Tekzilla. That would be cool! :cool:

    I'd like to see a tech/geek show. Something that's about the latest and greatest gadgets, some game reviews, tech reviews and how too's. Nothing too hard core, just the general stuff you can buy at say a Best Buy or Circuit City, that will be comprehended by a lot of people. I don't like that Covino and Rich are coming back. They sucked bro.

    I love listening to Jay Thomas, but the sound quality is absolutely horrendous on it that I turn it off after about 5 minutes.

    I'm a Covino and Rich fan. From listening a lot more lately though it seems like their fans are not fans of the channel ie Jay Thomas. I like Jay but their seems to be a clash between the brands of Jay Thomas and Covino and Rich.

    Yeah, I listened to C&R on Maxim, and since they trimmed down to three hours I just havent found myself listening as much. Not sure why, it's the same show essentially, but I don't know. And they other shows on the channel do seem to clash, as taylor said. Jay should stick on 101 or 102. 108 has the potential to become a differen't kind of channel. I like the idea of a few tech shows. I follow rev3 and leo laportes stuff, and chris pirillo, but hearing it on sirius would be nice. I know XM carries leos techguy show.

    I enjoy Jay Thomas one of the great reasons Sirius is great. He was here before Howard, and has entertained me for a long time.

    I think that'll always be an issue though. There's Stern fans that don't like Bubba and vice versa. But that's the good thing about satellite radio is that there can be something for everyone. But male oriented talk programs are part of what made people talk about Sirius and XM in the first place with Howard and O&A respectively. So if they focus on what keeps people around instead of trying to appeal to everyone with big name celebrities, that might help turn things around.
