Lucy contains the most important and well known songs in the history of Alternative Music. This channel is located on channel 54 on XM Satellite Radio and channel 838 on DirecTV. The channel is programmed largely under the watch of Music Director Bill Hutton who pulls most of the music from the hits of the alternative rock music genre of the late 1980s through now. Lucy is a DJ-free (and commercial-free) channel that relies on quick humorous promos that often poke light fun at their target audience.

Channel history

The channel premiered on XM on February 1, 2004 describing itself as "Alternative music is nearing its 25th year and where XM's Fred mines the library for the deep stuff, Lucy will focus solely on the biggest, most important songs in Alternative's history. 100% hits from the late 70's Bowie through the New Wave and Grunge eras to the defining songs of the late 90's. One after another... nothing but the monsters of Alternative." The first song played on Lucy was World Party's "Ship of Fools".

Artists you'll hear on Lucy:
*Pearl Jam
*Smashing Pumpkins
*Alanis Morissette
*Third Eye Blind
*Green Day
*Beastie Boys

Playlist modifications

In January 2006 XM began to alter the sound of the channel by adding current modern rock hits to its playlists and referring to the channel as a work in progress. The change was not warmly embraced by the majority of the audience and by June 2006 XM abandoned the changes returning the channel to its prior sound.

In June 2007, as part of an overall XM management shift in philosophy towards the biggest hit songs on their channels, the playlist was altered so that the biggest hits, that are aired on Lucy, went from a repeat cycle of 60-72 hours to 30-36 hours.
