Sirius / XM Holiday Lineup

The new merged Sirius/XM Satellite Radio lineup begins today and while I was updating my Sirius favorites on my Dish Network DVR I noticed that Cinemagic (formally an XM station) was playing Holly, a Christmas station. My program guide still says Cinemagic but the song details pop-up correctly lists the Holly info - I imagine the program guide will update eventually.

So I surfed over to the Sirius website and found this...

Ch. 81: Contemporary holiday hits mixed with selected traditional favorites. Listen for Bruce Springsteen, Amy Grant, The Carpenters, Mannheim Steamroller and more. Holly will air beginning on November 12 at 12 midnight ET through New Year's Eve, December 31.

Holiday Pops
Ch. 79: Beloved carols sung by the greatest classical musicians of all-time, including the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Luciano Pavarotti, Boston Pops and Leontyne Price among others. Holiday Pops will air November 27 through Christmas Day, December 25.

Radio Hanukkah
Ch. 3: A celebration showcasing Hanukkah music and Jewish culture. Radio Hanukkah will air beginning the first night of Hanukkah on December 21 starting at 12 midnight ET to December 29.

Bing Crosby Christmas Radio
Ch. 113: A non-stop broadcast of more than twenty years of vintage Bing Crosby holiday radio specials, featuring a wide variety of Crosby's beloved music — including his most popular recording ever, "White Christmas" — and special guests like Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Bob Hope among others. Bing Crosby Christmas Radio will air beginning December 15 at 12 midnight ET to Christmas Day, December 25.

Dish subscribers, like me, should get Holly and Pops but I don't know about the other two.
