The Loft is a music channel on Sirius XM Radio, broadcasting on channel 30 and Dish Network channel 6030. It features a format of eclectic adult album alternative music, occasionally branching off into more freeform music and talk programming.
Until November 12, 2008, it broadcast an acoustic rock format. The Loft changed formats to what sounded like the now-defunct SIRIUS Disorder and Fine Tuning by that time, with the acoustic rock format broadcast on its sister channel, The Coffee House.
Mike Marrone is the channel's programming director and primary on-air voice. Franny Thomas and Meg Griffin are also heard regularly.
Featured programs on the channel include:
- The Loft Sessions - a series of live performances recorded at XM's studio facilities.
- Your Roots Are Showing - featuring modern roots rock.
- Lou Reed's New York Shuffle - replays of freeform shows hosted by the veteran rocker
- David Johansen's Mansion of Fun - a freeform show hosted by the musician and actor
- Disorder - a freeform show hosted by Meg Griffin
