{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The '60s on 6 (or just The '60s) is a commercial-free, satellite radio station on the Sirius XM Radio platform. It plays music from the Classic hits, hits from the second half of the decade. Airing on XM since 2001, the channel became available to Sirius subscribers replacing '60s Vibrations on November 12, 2008, following the merger of the two companies. The station currently broadcasts on channel 6 of both services, as well as on Dish Network channel 6006. Lou Simon is currently the program director for the channel.

Like the other decades channels, The '60s on 6 attempts to recreate the feel of Classic hits radio. They use similar DJ habits, classic PAMS jingles, period slang, and news updates. The channel was also used for XM's annual Classic hits music chronology, IT.

Appropriately, the logo features a peace sign for the zero in its logo.

As of 2008, The '60s on 6 was the fifth most listened to station on the XM service, with a cume of 581,300 listeners per week, according to Arbitron analysis.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref>
