House Music back on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio sign now

This petition is the result of a lack of a true House Music channel on Sirius/XM Radio and our desire to see it on the air once more.

With a major market such as the New York City tri-state area supporting House Music in such a huge way(WRKS, and WBLS), we are shocked that House Music is missing from the Sirius/XM's "Electronic Music" line up. With a channel for Progressive House/Techno (Electric Area), and Commercial Dance Music (BPM), House is left unrepresented.

At one time XM Radio had a station representing House Music. The station (The Move) played Pure Club and House music, mostly from the deeper and more underground aspects of the genre, along with extended remixes that wouldn't be appropriate on conventional, mainstream Dance radio. The channel featured club DJs and artists performing extended sets from time to time, including weekly shows from John Digweed, Louie Vega, Carl Cox and Charles Feelgood. Some of the artists they played were: Barbara Tucker, Basement Jaxx, David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Armand Van Helden, Axwell, Tiga, Bob Sinclar, Full Intention, Everything But The Girl, Kaskade, Mark Farina, Louie Vega, Charles Webster just to name a few!

The Move was removed from the XM satellite service on July 29, 2008 but continued to be available through XM Radio Online web streaming and on DirecTV channel 858. At the time, XM explained the suspension of the channel's over the air presence as temporary (to make room on the service for various specialty programming.) The company "anticipate[d]" bringing back The Move in early 2009. However, The Move did not return to the satellites and there was speculation at the time of removal among subscribers and observers that XM programming executives had no intention of reinstating the channel despite the statement made in the announcements on-air and on their web site.

At a time when so much doom and uncertainty faces the everyday person, the positive messages of House Music need to reach people more than ever!!

As we've seen in Egypt, when we come together for change, things CAN be accomplished.

The purpose of this petition is to fight for what we love. We need to use our voices (both the divas and the men) and let Sirius/XM know that House Music deserves to be heard alongside the offspring that it produced (Progressive, Commercial, Ambient)

So please, take a moment and please sign this petition and write an e-mail to Sirius/XM:

[email protected]

Let them know that you want a station similar to the Move back on the air playing House Music.

By signing this petition, you are letting Sirius/XM know that there IS an audience for House Music!

If you have Sirius or XM let them know you would cancel your subscription because they lacked a TRUE House Music station.

If you DON'T have Sirius or XM, let them know that THIS IS THE REASON WHY! Because they lack TRUE DIVERSITY in their Electronic Music line up. Something that House Music is all about!

Most people don't and won't even understand, that's why we all need to come together, to let everybody know that House Music LIVES...

And it should live on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio
