    Sirius will start Halloween programming on Sunday, October 26 on channel 113.

    SIRIUS Satellite Radio - Your Halloween Soundtrack

    SCREAM 113
    For a ghoulish Halloween, tune in to SIRIUS Scream 113 from Sunday, October 26 to Sunday, November 2. The channel will feature spooky songs and sound effects, Halloween stories from SIRIUS Stars and personalities (Martha Stewart, Deepak Chopra, Jay Thomas and Cousin Brucie, among them), Halloween-related interviews and features, listener comments, and more. And on October 31, Scream 113 is the place for your sound track for Halloween with 24 hours of blood curdling sound effects … Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

    I have not seen an announcement from XM yet.

    Ewww, I am scared already! LOL

    Thanks for the announcement, I will check this out for sure!

    I have the Mannheim Steamroller, Halloween, Halloween Creatures of the Night and Halloween Creatures of the Night Part 2 on my iPod. It more or less new age, but it is creepy as hell and with gapless playback pretty darn cool.

    Very cool. I'm gonna crank up my FM tranmitter and hide a boombox in my spooky front yard. Maybe somewhere near my grave with Howard Stern's head digging out. (no joke)

    Last year I sat outside to hand out candy and had Sirius Halloween blaring for all the kiddies.

    Was "Scream 113" streamed online last year? Will it be this year? I'd love to use my Stiletto via wifi to creep out the trick-or-treaters...

    And they should fix that FYE banner...they're not getting their money's worth...

    Good idea. I would love to do that but I don't get any kids around here. I love too far in BFE

    I felt bad (sort of) for the one little kid. He was pretty young. He got freaked out.

    The one time I handed out candy it was at my, at the time, Fiance's house. We painted a jack-o-lantern on it and had the mouth cut-out. The bowl of candy was sitting in front of the mouth and I was in the box. She was about 1/4 of the way from the street to the house and I was 1/2 way up. She was disguised as a bush and jumped up at the kids; that way they didn't expect anything to be up with the box. Well, all went great until I made a kid cry and the mother knocked the box over, throwing me off my chair and onto the driveway.

    Needless to say, I stopped grabbing the kids' hands. Instead I just moved the box and yelled.

    Here is XM's Halloween schedule:

    XM Gore 134
    October 26 - October 31
    *All day and night October 31, 24 hours of blood-curdling Halloween sound effects

    For 24 hours on October 31 we will broadcast thrilling Halloween sound effects, making them the perfect catchy, creepy, fun atmospheres for Halloween parties at work or at home, to listen to in the car driving around the neighborhood trick-or-treating and to play in the house and front yard as trick-or-treaters come over.

    The same channel must be on both XM and Sirius. The announcer is saying Sirius Scream 113 and XM Gore 134.

    Ewwww.... I guess that is what we have to look forward to when they merge these channels.

    Last year XM did "Igor". It was all music no celeberaty babble and stories and crap.
    It was a pretty good channel. Since they obviously trashed the XM version, not sure why they couldn't have just made it Scream on both systems.

    I hope they don't trash Holly.

    I listened to this on my car XM radio tonight ... it sucks. The stories are boring. They fill it with stupid sound effects. And the station ids are horrible. On top of that there is no pad data. Song & Artist always show as "Happy Halloween".

    If my son didn't like this channel I wouldn't listen again.

    I agree...

    Listened for 10 minutes on my way home.. 2 stories and I was through..

    I think its pretty cute. I have enjoyed several stories by DJ's and others. The music is cool too.

    Oh well different strokes for different folks! The fact is there just isn't a whole lot of Halloween Programming.

    Did you ever listen to XM's Igor channel last year? It had the music, proper PAD data and was a very good channel.

    I could live with this channel if they got rid of the crappy "scary" sounds and the station ids. Some of the stories aren't that bad but they intersperse it with crap. Also they don't need to do 1 song, 1 story. 5-1 would be a good song - story ratio.
