So, this girl is definitely digging the recent merge of Sirius Radio & XM.

But what I'm not happy about, is that Sirius has done nothing in the way of contacting us users to let us know what the changes are. One would think a new channel guide - at a minimum - is something that we could've had sent to us.

But no. I've not received a thing. So, I've been figuring it out myself; well - at least channels 1 through 31. I don't often go further than that unless I get a song alert for Country. They put Country way down in the 60's and it's a pain surfing down there. So, I have certain artists and songs on alert and when I get one - I click over.

Here's what I'm really liking thus far.... I love that the early numbered channels (4-9) are now the originally XM based channels. There's a 40's music channel, which is one of my favorites. I love, love, love music of the 40s. I'm also finding that the other generationally based channels are playing a better selection than they used to, which is why I'm really enjoying them now. I used to truthfully, just blow by them because they sort of played the same things over and over. It's definitely much more eclectic now.

The heavy metal/indie rock channels are better now too! There's more of them and a better variety, which I'm really liking.

The most important thing of all is that they kept "The Coffee House", channel 30 -- all acoustic station. I think I'd have to rethink my subscription options if they changed that one. I haven't had the chance to check out if there are any new New Age/Celtic or Classical channels, but I will.

What this girl really wants to know though....will I get MLB now too?? I have the NFL channels, but seriously -- I want my MLB!!!

We have XM. I lived on the MLB channels late last season.
