Ac/Dc Radio is apperently only a short term event, but who knows, maybe they'll wait to bring it back after they've merged the music channels. So we'll either get one version of it or the other.

I miss it and I fail to understand the logic of putting AC/DC on the Punk channel. Why not Classic Rewind or about two other more appropriate picks.

AC/DC will be there until January 2009.

The Punk station from XM is gone, too.

Thats why i was hoping that when January comes around, they'll put punk back on both services. either under Fungus's name or Sirius Punks name. Or maybe they'll just make the channel disappear completely. :(

There still is no word if they'll be back. I did see a petition somewhere to save the channels.

Don't forget to send an email or 2. It does seem that someone does read them, even if things don't go your way. Not hearing anything just helps them to decide they did the right thing.

I feel bad for you "Punk" fans. However, as an avid AC/DC fan, I am extremely thrilled that, with other bands and singers getting their own channels, AC/DC got theirs too. Now generally speaking, I question the logic of 24/7 band/singer channels. However, they are there, so I'm glad AC/DC got one of it's own.

I'm sure it'll be back in January. After all, they haven't changed the name of the channel.

*Sirius subscriber. I can't speak about XM's programming.

I don't. And with the upcoming channel merger, if other channels die, I hope this one remains on the scrapheap in favour of perhaps one I listen to that has been canned.

Fungus had some of the best specialty shows of any satrad station, past or present, Sirius or XM. Aside from the inustrial show (that was always grossly misplaced on Fungus), there wasn't one that I would miss if I could possibly manage.

I'm still holding out some hope that a punk station will return in January, and that the still-employed Lou Brutus will be back in the saddle again. But the one thing I'm not holding is my breath.

Its already confirmed that this is not going to happen. Boneyard will return in place of AC/DC in January.
