Re: Sirius Officially Sucks!

im having the same issue with XM radio - it's because of the merge. One of my favorite stations, "chrome" no longer exists! this was the station that pretty much played all the freestyle -

Re: Sirius Officially Sucks!

I also saw that the removed Backspin?!?!?! I am traveling so can't check it out right now, but that was a channel I listened to all the time - old school hip hop. If that is true it is kinda hard to justify keeping the service just for Howard Stern and Area whatever it is called now. I was thinking they got rid of the Strobe channel because they were keeping the XM version, but if they removed the XM version as well, I guess that means they will no longer play Freestyle at all???

On a related note, I am in San Antonio for the week and found a radio channel here (I am forgetting what the call sign is at the moment) that plays all older dance music from the 80s and 90s - when I first got in the car at the airport I turned on the radio and the first thing I heard was TKA's Maria! The music so far has been all the dance music I listened to in HS and college. I am loving it (my business partner sharing the car is not nearly as thrilled... :-) ) Now, how come they have a great radio station like that here that apparently can survive but elsewhere it doesn't seem like it is viable?

Re: Sirius Officially Sucks!

I called and complained and they didnt even offer me a free month. I told them I was canceling when my contract ends in the begining of the year and it didnt seem to phase the operator in the least.

Re: Sirius Officially Sucks!

To Kenny and all concerned,

We ARE going to do something about this. I will be working on a letter writing campaign (the template will be placed up on the coalition site but I'll place one here as well). I would also like to do some sort of rally outside of Sirius' offices....try to get disco and classic freestyle artists to come out and perform, just to show that there still is an interest for classic dance.

Even though I personally have always leaned towards currents, there still has to be a "heritage" somehow and stations like "The Strobe" and "Chrome" was perfect for that environment.

We may consider ourselves "lucky" in that there are stations on the FM in NYC that play classic stuff, but for that poor soul out in Davenport, IA or Boise, ID, satellite radio was their ONLY source of hearing classic dance and disco. And I really don't see that crowd (being mainly older) seeking out Internet streams.

We'll keep you informed.....

Re: Sirius Officially Sucks!

well, at least we have 3 stations in new york that play freestyle. I am saddened for those outside the listening area that relied on sirius or xm for their freestyle however.
