I am with you. Boombox was one of my favorite channels. I love Mash-Ups and Rock-Remixes. They are totally better than the music that they are playing on Octane sometimes. I mean seriously, Alice In Chains & Nirvana on Octane??? I can hear that SH#T on FREE Radio. At the very least it belongs on their 90s alternative channel since its 15 years old!!!! Who the hell is running these channels anyway? It cant be Jose or DJ Liquid Todd?? Those guys are awesome.

Anyway, yeah, im not happy about boombox being gone. And even the bigger joke is that on the new Channel flyer it says something like if you liked boombox check out Alt Nation. LMAO Someone at SiriusXM is smoking some great dope.

Count me in. What's the point of sat rad if you can get 10 channels that play Led Zep and none that play Crystal Meth.

I listened to 34/BB everday. I miss it. I would support a petition. I think I already did send some kind of petition that was floating around here on this right after the big switch.

I'm in on this one.

Boombox was a great channel and I loved the mashups and breakbeat. How this was even considered for the chopping block when we have around 9 classic rock channels is beyond me.

This was the only station of it's kind.

I picture old guys like Scott Greenstien and Mel Karmazin sitting at a table trying to figure out what channels to cut and saying "how are boombox and area38 different? They're not, let's axe Boombox."

Pisses me off.

Maybe they let the Stern gang make the decisions. More Leslie West!!!, when is Train coming back in??? A quote from a show last week talking about the grammy selections -- "Coldplay? what have they done lately, weren't they popular years ago?". Even Booey didn't step in to say that they have one of the top selling (downloaded?) offerings this year as well as doing well on their tour. If it wasn't released in the 60s/70s (except by Springsteen) it probably isn't worth having on a channel.

Maybe someone should let Howard know that boombox was one of the only outlets for hearing the chemical brothers, which he liked to listen to when working out before the Sirius days. "I love that robot music...".

-Mel: "Disco? A seventies channel plays disco?"

-Programmer: "What about classic dance?"

-Mel:"Like Gingers Rogers?"

-Programmers"Like 80s dance stuff? Like Exposé"

-Scott: "Um, the 80s channel, jerk! Well just repeat the same Denney Terrio special each week! And what is Exposé? Sounds dirty and we won't play dirty stuff! No bad words!"

Jesus! Always good to have rich WASP (Jewish...same thing as far as music savvy) millionaires make these decisions!

This is still crap. Ones and zeros isn't enough, and it's on the wrong station too!

Who has Mel's phone number?

It's time to talk to him directly.
