What the hell is Sirius thinking? Isn't 54 radio the same as the strobe? So they remove one disco channel and replace it with another disco channel brillient programming move.

Actually, the removed 1 disco channel and replaced it with Pearl Jam Radio. Then they replaced BBC1 with the other disco channel. Essentially they replaced BBC 1 with Peal Jam Radio.

Why not just put Strobe back on the sats?
Because now they have branded it with something they feel will attract more subs. SXM is all about presentation and not much about substance. This is their Sirius side talking. I remember him babbling at the FCC hearings and talking about the 80s channel and how he would choose which would stay and which would go. He said Sirius has the MTV VJs and XM has whatever XM has and we will decide which one has more recognition (or something like that). It wasn't the depth of the playlist but how the 80s channel was presented. Now they say they have Studio 54 radio. Sounds better than The Strobe or Chrome.
