Has anyone heard if Yacht Rock is coming back for the summer? I know it was on 70 last year, but I could see them possibly putting it on 30.
They announced it on the Love Channel tonight that Yacht Radio takes over the Love Channel starting tomorrow at Noon Eastern time. Probably will last most of the Summer.

Love Channel will still be available on the app.

We listen to Yacht Rock Radio on the app at home. It's decent background music, but they only play like 8 songs, and 6 of them have Michael McDonald in them.

The Mount Rushmore of Yacht Rock would include:

Kenny Loggins
Michael McDonald
Christopher Cross
Steely Dan

Yeah... all involve Michael McDonald
Had Yacht Rock radio on at dinnertime (online ch 311), and they played like 7 Michael-Macdonald-involved songs in succession. It included: Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Nicollet Larson, Kenny Loggins, Doobie Brothers, and of course Michael Macdonald. I think they're screwing with me.

SiriusXM has a channel, E-I-E-I-O
And on this channel they play lots of songs, E-I-E-I-O
With America here and Steely Dan there
With the Eagles here and Doobie Brothers there
You might think the playlist is fair, E-I-E-I-O

If you think the playlist is fair, E-I-E-I-O
You are very, very wrong, E-I-E-I-O
I Keep Forgettin', I Gotta Try
Peg, Sweet Freedom
, it makes me cry
Michael McDonald is every other song, E-I-E-I-O

Remember when they would do the limited-run channels on the regular channel on satellite, but keep the original channel "as-is" on the app/website?

30 on satellite: Dave Matthews
30 on app/radio: The Loft
Whatever number on the app: Dave Matthews

The Loft *is* on the app, so it's not totally gone...but yeah, if you have an older plug-and-play... yeah. I'm not sure if it's on my Onyx Plus or not.

Has anyone created a list of the Top 1000?

I've been listening off and on for the past week. I got to listen to 46-1 today. Can't say I agree with all the choices.
