Soul Town is a soul music radio station operated by Sirius XM Radio, broadcasting on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 49[1] (previously 53), XM Satellite Radio channel 49[2] (previously 60, where it replaced Soul Street on November 12, 2008) and Dish Network channel 6049(previously 6053), until Sirius XM Chill took Dish Network 6053 and Sirius XM Radio 53. Until February 9, 2010, it was on DirecTV channel 842, but all of DirecTV's Sirius XM programming was dropped in favor of Sonic Tap by DMX.

The channel concentrates on soul and R&B music from the 1960s and 1970s. Its definition is expansive, including black artists from the 1960s in various not-quite-soul genres as well as a few white soul artists. On-air personalities include Carol Ford, Ken "Spider" Webb, Jeff Foxx, Tanya Simpson, and Wanda Ramos.
