    And in the email, it says Click here for our new channel lineup! So I click and this is what I saw.

    Do you see HOWARD STERN anywhere?​

    you should reply and say that you don't see stern and ask if he's still there. when they say yes, tell them no thanks.

    I don't understand how they are going to sustain this business. It's just too fucking expensive for what you get - and all the music channels sound like SHIT compared to just streaming bluetooth in your car.

    Who in the fuck is paying 15-18$ a month for this shit. The $20 for 6 months I can see - but not the regular subscription rate - not these days, anyway.

    He's an embarrassment. He's not worth bragging about.

    No. Here while back when they said old radios would be back on for two weeks, I figured "What the hell?", and went looking for mine.
    I found it. When I canceled I threw it behind the seat in my pickup. The screen was smooshed.
    Maybe I can talk them into sending me a free radio I can sell on ebay. :hhh:

    The music sounds the same to be, Sirius, Bluetooth, usb card, and headphone jack. The only time I notice a difference is with terrestrial radio which sounds slightly worse.

    My biggest problem is that the songs seem to be on a 4-5 hour loop. I mostly listen to Lithium, Octane, and the Sinatra channel.

    That's what Adam Schein looks like?

    Not what I expected at all.

    I can still remember the first song I heard on Sirius in July 2005 before Howard came over. That was before they brought all the program managers over from FM who knows that the Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Stones, yada yada yada, only had 4-5 songs worthy of airplay in their knowledgeable(?) opinions.
    Hey, they been in the bizznizz. All we are are music fans. What do we know?

    Oh, and here's the song. I probably hadn't heard it in 20 years. And you won't know it at all... :D

    There's one thing that always bugged me about their music channels like 70's on 7, and 80's on 8. What ever shithead they use to program them, they can never get the era or the artists correct. Like this shit, they play that song "Spooky - Classics 4" from 1968, and play it on the 70 channel.

    [video=youtube;DZJo5nu2wso]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZJo5nu2wso[/video]

    But they don't use the original, they play the shitty 80's remake from the "Atlanta Rhythm Section" So nothing is right as far as the music or the time frame.

    If they say they are serious about music, get it right! It sounds like Gary is the music adviser over there.

    Well, they have Adam Schein in the promo and Sirius has an one ugly Jew per e-mail marketing campaign rule.
