    20 currents and nothing else? Sounds like a revival of the Hot Hits format.

    Hot Hits was only successful because there was no Spotify or Apple Music at that time. They need to interject some personality into that station quickly if they plan to offer something that an AI-generated algorithm can’t.

    Sounds like the “20 on 20” station that was on XM a few years back. I think it got carried over to SiriusXM, but I don’t believe it’s around anymore.
