My app subscription was set to renew next month. I called SiriusXM and told them not to renew it.

It's not just because of the new channels, but the app really sucks. It's clunky and it's hard to find on demand content.
I have kept all access going for my girlfriend in the kitchen, the TTR1 works perfectly for her and since she can cook up a storm who am I to argue :) . As for the app - totally agree.

I like the wide array of selections for every category of music. One song after another without a "radio station voice" is a nice change of pace. SXM has achieved the Pandora effect in my ears. I listen for a few hours at a time and enjoy picking new channels and challenging my ears with alternative styles of music.

My point is that they had this before, but are pretending this is a whole new thing. This isn't customizable like Pandora is...it's not even close to MySXM.

I do miss MySXM, (and my Lynx) but these channels (the new 100+xtra) are nice lately. I've used them at work for a good mix up from the regular genres and the playlists are curated enough to make it enjoyable for everyone. the workout and 90's/2000s party stations were good background for everyone. I wish radios got more of these, but on the app its great, which is where most of my listening takes place these days anyways.
However, my internet is down right now and can only leech internet here and there until next week, which means I busted out the old stiletto and antenna and plugged that bad boy in again. Good old "offline" sat radio.

They previewed the 70s 80s and 90s channel on channel 4 last week and it was pretty good. A bit rigid -- they did the decades in order and repeated -- but nice idea. And each decade could be any song -- pop, disco, rock, rap.

Could this be similar to Super Shuffle??

So Madison and Mrs. geosync like the '40s channel. I do too. It's fun to hear the music our parents and grandparents grew up with -- and it's also nice to hear songs where the vocals aren't X-rated and aren't buried beneath synthesizers and drum machines. Through the '40s channel I discovered the music of Ozzie Nelson. I bought several compilation CDs of his music. He had a really good band. Ozzie wound up marrying one of his vocalists, Harriet Hilliard. The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet ran on radio from 1944 to 1954 and on television from 1952 to 1966.

I just posted the channel's playlist. Go look!
