Sirius Blues vs BB King's Bluesville
I am by no means a blues expert as I just started listening to it a few months ago, but I was curious to see what everyone's opinion of this switch is. I am a Sirius subscriber so I had been listening to Sirius Blues until recently. So far, I haven't been disappointed and have been enjoying the new version of this channel.

So far, I find the Bluesville going deeper and back further into the history of the Blues. But frankly I miss some of my returning favorites... Freddie King, Albert King, Otis Rush, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Solomon Burke, Robert Cray, Albert Collins, JEric Clapton. I know these guys are some of the more "commercial" blues greats. But I thought Sirius Blues worked them in more frequently while still preserving tons of variety of the station. Now I predominately just hear artists and songs I've never heard of. Again... I like to hear new stuff... just not all the time. Bring back some of the Blues staples!
