    We lost the boombox (sirius) but we gained a TON of talent on BPM and Area. I for one am excited to hear the new shows and pass judgement after that.

    Boombox was one of my faves. I'll miss it but it isn't something I am going to sit here and cry wolf about, "I"M CANCELLING!!!!!!!!!!11111" :rolleyes:

    Boombox was the only station besides BBC1 to play Flux by Bloc Party, but that is the only time I ever listened to it. Does Liquid Todd still work for Sirius? I noticed they took Zeroes and Ones off the LOC page. That was a great show..

    :scratch: what show is that?

    Been listening to BPM all afternoon, and am VERY happy that they have DJs that do constant mix shows. I think this is great so far. Been listening to Skyy

    Is there a petition out there? If not, maybe time to start one!

    It played a lot of underground/indie rock music that wasn't normally heard on the channel. Liquid Todd hosted it and I knew he created Boombox and programed Chill so I was wondering if anyone knew if he was out or not.

    Overall, I definitely like the new lineup...even though we now have less dance channels to listen to. HOPEFULLY Sirius leaves BPM. WOW, what an improvement over The Beat.

    Yeah they have gutted dance about as bad as they have R&B.

    Dance List for Slacker! Off topic I know, but just thought you guys should know there is an alternative.

    don't bother. We had a huge petition to bring back Remix after they Axed it. IMO the best channel I have ever heard on sirius to date

    the more i am listening to BPM the more I'm loving the fact that the Beat is gone! At first i wasn't sure what to think, but BPM has been pretty impressive!
    At one point, they had started playing September -Cry for You and the DJ stopped the song and mentioned that this song was overplayed for the last year on the Beat....NO MORE, and moved on to the next song!...I love it!

    I notice Area has some break-beat and Boombox type dance in it's playlist. I'm liking it so far.

    Imo

    My sirius listening constists mostly of Howard in the morning for a few hours, then the rest of the day spent flipping back and forth between Area 38 and The Beat...

    I was a little surprised when the channels were remapped and my initial reaction was anger.

    However, like others have suggested, I think we may have actually came out ahead in this one. Area 38 seems to have gained some talent and BPM seems to be coming through with a good mix. Hopefully, Sirius-XM keeps the playlists deep and the talent high... I am willing to give this a chance, but if they burn the dance channels IM GONE!!!

    I couldn't possibly care less about The Strobe, it can lick my vanilla salty balls...

    Anyone know what happened to siriusbackstage.com? It has been sliding for awhile, but now it is completely dead...

    Being discussed here.

    Basically, the owner hasn't been around, and the site began to slow, and either the spike in traffic after the channel change killed it, and since the admin isn't around to care to fix it, it stayed down, OR, as most people are suspecting, the bill came to renew the hosting plan, and it didn't get paid.

    Well thank you sir for taking the time to respond, even if it was a little off topic... I am new around here and finding my way about. This board looks like a very suitable replacement for the board whose name I will not speak...

    Back to the Sirius-XM music mix up:

    Although I do believe this whole fiasco was handled EXTREMELY poorly, especially from a customer service stand point, I do hope enough subscribers stay around for them to keep afloat. With a stock price of $0.25 a share, I am afraid a little pig could blow them over. This would make my stiletto 2 a very stupid mp3 player...

    I think we don;t have to worry about SiriusXM going under terribly soon.. Long enough to get your monies worth out of your SL2, at least.

    Here's to hoping.
