    I may be in the minority but I do not care for the stations that only offer one group or musician. I would rather see quite a few other things then the ones we already have.

    Wow, thanks for such a meaningful reply. It really adds a lot to this forum with such well thought out mature posts. Maybe we should all be glad you only post .05 a day.

    I'd like to see perhaps channels devoted to great bands on a rotation, or on a daily basis. But 24/7? I do like that if I'm in a Stones/Elvis/Buffet mood, there's always something on, but the only one out of those I like is the Stones. Beatles are great, but another 24/7 channel is something I don't desire, I'd love to see them pick up a score and soundtrack channel something like XM's Cinemagic which from what I hear will be phased out.

    I enjoyed the Stones channel but they never reached deep into their album. They always kept playing the same familiar singles.

    I'd definitely love a Beatles channel... I'd imagine the royalties would be utterly insane for Sirius though.

    Put me down for a Beatles station; as well as a Springsteen. AOL has ad dedicated stations for years.

    If they just played the hits on a Beatles channel I'd be happy. I kind of feel about it the same way I do a concert. If I go see a major artist in concert, they better play the hits [​IMG]

    The good thing is, the Beatles have tons of them, almost every album - and every song on many albums - is recognizable great stuff. I would love to see them take a station like the Rolling Stone Station and break it down in a 4-way rotation of artists. Ie, Monday: Beatles; Tuesday: Rolling Stones; Wednesday (X) Thursday (Y) and then back again.

    A Beatles channel would be awesome. I agree, if Elvis has a station of his own, The Beatles can too. They have tons of material to go through. The point about having to pay major royalties is true, though. I'm sure that the guy in charge of the beatles catalog wouldn't like this idea. If i'm not mistaken, he's resisted selling their songs as mp3s for fear of less $. I could be mistaken.

    A Beatles channel would be cool, but I already have everything Beatles, so besides a random playlist on the road, there wouldn't be much benefit for me. Now the idea of a rotating 24/7 channel is interesting.

    XM's going to phase out Cinemagic?? Damn - that's always been one of my favorite channels. [​IMG]

    I love much of their music, but I would have to vote no on a year around Beatles channel.

    I think a better idea would be a one week tribute on 60s Vibrations. Seven full days of mostly Beatles music, combined with some old interviews of the Fab Four, as well as interviews of others who played an important part in their legacy.

    They were pretty much Paul's band from the Sgt. Pepper album until their breakup a few years later.

    Another very good reason to just have a one week tribute, rather than a year around channel.

    We're almost half way through November, and XM still has Cinemagic. Does anybody have an update on whether it's going to be phased out soon?

    Good!

    I'm a dual subscriber to both Sirius and XM, with a preference for Sirius. But Cinemagic is one of the channels that keeps me as an XM subscriber.
