Anyone taken a look at XM Radio lately? Here's their lineup:
JAZZ: 5 channels - "Real Jazz - From the amazing Jazz pioneers of the
'20s to the young lions making history today." (I listen to this
channel and have never heard any Dixieland); Watercolors (elevator music
type stuff); Beyond Jazz (fusion, techno and acid jazz); Frank's Place
(Sinatra and friends); and Bluesville (blues).
Rock: 14 channels (not including the "Decades" channels of the 60's
through '90's) ranging from Classic rock to alternative to punk to top
Country: 7 channels.
"Hits": 9 channels of top 40 to generic pop to movie and Broadway
Christian: believe it or not (pardon the pun) 3 channels.
Urban: 7 channels ranging from R&B to hip hop.
And let's not forget the 7 dance/disco channels, the 3 "world" channels
and yes, they even have 3 (count 'em 3!) Classical channels.
Dixieland as a subset of Jazz, forget about it! OKOM's not even on the
We have a lot of work to do.
Now I've got to go practice!
