    Hey everyone!
    First post, although I've been reading for a while.

    Ok, so I'm an avid SiriusXM fan, and I listen about 8 hours a day- typically to The Coffeehouse. They play acoustic hits, and it's more mellow and appropriate for work. Now since I listen for so long each day, I hear repeats (I'm not the typical Sirius listener, and it's not a thing against Sirius- it's just a fact that if you listen for 8 hours a day, 5-6 days a week you're going to hear repeats!).

    I'd like to try out Slacker, and I'm looking for a good station that could supplement my Coffeehouse listening. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Singer-Songwriter station just launched

    It looks like Slacker just launched a station very similar to Coffee House called Singer-Songwriter. It's in the "Alternative" folder at Slacker Personal Radio.

    From the description of the station:

    Singer-Songwriter on Slacker Radio showcases musicians that combine melody and message with the craft of songwriting. Whether you seek to be inspired by the classics or discover promising new artists, Singer-Songwriter offers the best of both worlds with acts like Snow Patrol, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and more.

    I've also heard Ray LaMontagne, Ben Folds and Amos Lee. Great stuff.

    Well, Singer-Songwriters is a nice station, but coming from the XM side of things, it's more comparable to The Loft than it is to XM Cafe.

    I've created my own take on what used to be XM Cafe... I think it's got a pretty close sound, though some minor tweaking here and there might be needed.
