New Line Up - some comments
I have been getting a lot of emails about the new line up, so here is some more details and some comments and insight by me..
Enterianment Channles are moving to the lower 100's
News will be moving to 140+ with Traffic stations
New Music Channels:
Super Shuffle (SIRIUS Super Mix)
-This is like a JACK-FM, but Sirius doesn't want to even say that, this station will be a Shuffle of music form across Sirius.. Some have said this is like Sirius Disorder,... Kinda, but Sirius Disorder is mostly Rock base, this station will have Rock,Pop, and more...
the coffee house (Acoustic Coffee House Music)
-A station of Acoustic music... Like "XM Cafe' or Hear Music"
Revolution (Christian Rock)
-We have spirit, more Pop like Christian music, now we also get Christian Rock
spa73 (New Age)
-New Age music, something you would find playing in your spa
New Talk Channels:
Howard Stern Channel 100 Howard Stern Channel 101
-Howard will start programming one station in September, and he will start his show in Jan or when he gets out of contract..
Martha Stewart Living Radio (How-To For Living)
- Martha will tell us all how to live..
SIRIUS Advice (Call-in Advice Talk)
- Look for some new nationally know radio shows, like Dr. Laura (nothing official on that).. Some of the shows on Sirius Central now on the weekends could move over.. Will be like "Ask" on XM
- All Howard Stern.. Kiddin'.. The 360 of him.. Good Old clean talk..
New News Channels:
Sirius Weather and Emergancy - Will Replace The Preview..
-Weather Alerts and National/Local Emergancy
Soul Revue > Soul Town
- Ok, I guess a revue was to risky..
SIRIUS Talk Central > SIRIUS Stars
- The name is ok, we all know that Sirius is the brightest star right? So lets but Jay Thomas and The radio chick there.. I think this will turn in to shows that are only on Sirius.. Like Jay and the Chick.. Look for some shows to move to SIRIUS Advice.. Some new Sirius only shows may be added ..
Horizons > The Globe
- Just a new name.. It will be back after Rolling Stone Radio
Wisdom > Lime (Healthy Living with a Twist)
- Cool name, just not as wise
STN > Sirius Trucker
- Good thing they did not make it Sirius F**ker, STN was Sirius Trucking Network... Better name
The Weather Channels (east/central/West)
The Preview Channel
- Some has asked if these will be net only stations.. No word about that..
LA and NYC get their own Traffic Channel.
