    Lots of channels being axed and merging with Sirius.

    Beyond Jazz is gone :(
    I think XCountry will be gone. Double :(

    XM is getting Jam On and the Grateful Dead channel.
    Lots of other shit happening.

    I think their financial position doesn't allow them that kind of time.

    Fuck I'm into that Beyond Jazz channel. It's chill and has a very ecclectic range of music as opposed to these fucking one artist stations. Grateful Dead. Ugh. And Ethel has been shit since the merger.

    XM tech support just told me 202 could be one of the channels being axed as I have a trouble ticket opened on why the 202 preset will not stay.
    I was told they may not being doing anything because they are going to be doing away with channel.
    Bbbbboys maybe going away or at least to different channel?

    Contract or not lets not get caught sitting on our butts.

    The Grateful Dead channel has already gone better than the AC/DC channel, considering it has been around for a long time (at least a year, longer maybe?) on Sirius. And I am excited to finally be getting another jam band channel since they took away the one XM had.

    Meh, get an ipod if you want to listen to music.

    I wouldn't worry about the Virus going away - Worst case scenario they move them to a common channel on both platforms, everyone has to change their pre-sets, and Sleeves has to update the sweeper. No big deal.

    Whatever the channel number ends up being, I can't imagine the virus being on dual channels after the reorganization.

    My guess, The Virus will be on 99 so it's close to Howard. Or 102.

    Also, based on today's USA Today ad, RawDog is coming to XM (replaces XM Comdey channel), so this mean you can listen to Jim Breuer on XM.

    I'm hoping that XM get Sirius' Outlaw Country.

    It is more gooder.

    Shooter Jennings has a great show followed by Mojo Nixon.

    Yes, but it might also mean Unmasked will get cancelled. :(

    I doubt it.
    I can't see it costing all that much money.
    And I thought that Ronnie said last week that they had plans for some new interviews.

    Seconded.

    Outlaw Country sounds cool... I've always said if you don't got Mojo Nixon, then your station could use some fixin'.
