I picked Boneyard to start us off for week 2 of WTD in honor of "Mini-Kiss" coming to play here in Toledo this summer.

Boneyard!
Hard and heavy classic rock.

Walk this way and hop on the crazy train for big, hard, heavy classic rock. Ozzy, AC/DC, Judas Priest... it's the music that shook you all night long and rocked you like a hurricane!
Artists You'll Hear AC/DC, Van Halen, Metallica, Rush, Judas Priest, Aerosmith, Kiss, Guns & Roses, Ozzy Osbourne/Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden


This holiday weekend:
The Memorial Day 3-day 3-way
Friday 5/28 @ 6 pm ET - Monday 5/31 @ 6 pm ET
The Boneyard’s gonna play 3-ways (3 in a row by your favorite bands) for 3 days. While you’re grilling out, drinking cold ones and enjoying the unofficial start of summer, crank up these vocals, riffs and solos!

My biggest complaint with the old channel Buzzsaw was that it overlapped way too much with Classic Rewind, and they played too much Pat Benatar and Bob Seger. That's not the case with Boneyard. This is a good hard rockin' channel!

Only complaint is that they repeat the same artists plenty.

I listened to this for awhile today, but this is not one of the typical stations I would listen too. I am really not that much into the heavier rock tunes. I did hear several songs that I have not heard in a while, so that was good.

I can't really say much about repetition because I'd have to listen for awhile to find that out and I don't see myself doing that.

I give it 4 stars because of hearing some classic hits I've not heard in a while.

I know there is has got to be some other Boneyard listeners out there, come on guys give us your feedback, what do you think of this channel?

I seldom listen except for Eddie Trunk on Monday nights. The artist repetition is too much for me. The old XM Boneyard was MUCH better. If only they would appoint Eddie program director of bring back Kevin Kash.

Yes, Eddie Trunk rules. (Mondays 6pm -10pm est.)

I like the channel as it is not what I listen to regulary but is in my channel surfing rotation.

3 of 5 stars

Too much repetition at times, even by specific song. I played boneyard the majority of a week-long fishing trip to the U.P. Other guys on the trip don't have Sirius/XM. They liked boneyard until the repetition became evident. A song that was "wow, haven't heard that for a long time" turned into "they are playing that again?". Could go a bit deeper into the albums instead of playing the top one or two tracks. They seem to do that with the more often played artists like Van Halen and Rush.

This is the type of music I listened to most often when I was in Jr High & High School :)

All the stoners did, right? :right:

Anywho, it was nice to hear the old standard again, plus a few I've never heard before. The selection was very good. Music from Rush to Mega-something-or-other. Van Halen to Metallica.

I think the afternoon DJ did a pretty good job. I give it 4 out of 5 Stars :cool:

So I've been listening to Boneyard more than I thought I would. It's the same artists (for the most part) that my local fm station drove into the ground and spoiled for me years ago. But they play a ton of stuff I haven't heard in forever.

There is a lot of artist repetition, just like the fm stations, but Boneyard plays a lot deeper selection of those artists. Songs that fm won't ever touch. I do wish that they would spread it out more, but I found that since at least they don't play the same top 3 ac/dc, who, zep, ozzy songs, that I can listen for a couple of hours before I feel the need to change channels.

So I did make it a preset on the lower end of my list. I'm finding myself listening for a couple of hours at a time a couple of times a week. And since they play the songs that fm won't play, I'm giving it 4 stars.

Sounds: Classic metal & hard rock

Positives: Note this channel is now Ozzy's Boneyard and it represents much more like I would've expected Margaritaville to be. There's an Ozzy song followed by many songs from other classic metal artists with an occasional Black Sabbath then Ozzy back to back. They even had a "computer isn't picking the music" moment when a Dio song played, and the DJ talked about Dio's time in Black Sabbath then played a Black Sabbath song with Dio at the healm.

Negatives: While lots of different songs are represented from the artists (with the exception of Living Colour who apparently only ever recorded Cult Of Personality), the pool of artists is limited

Blastability: Very High. This music rocks

Overall: I think the channel is still decent because it hasn't changed much from when the new merged Boneyard channel started. However if you heard the original XM Boneyard, you'd know that this channel has the ability to be way better with an extended stable of artists and the addition of new music ("Breaking Bone") to the classics

On the other hand, if you heard what Sirius Buzzsaw sounded like prior to the merger, this is the most perfect station ever created. :D
