XM Satellite Radio and cultural diversity

Some of the stations have changed:

Out: African music, World music

In: French songs (Sur La Route), and also French rap and other French innovations (La Musique)

This was done to obtain entry into the Canadian market, which among other things required appeasement of the French-language minority.  It is funny what is sometimes done in the name of cultural diversity, eh?  Let’s hope that world music makes a comeback once those horrible Christmas music channels are gone.
