    Sirius-XM Radio, a pay service, is now censoring their music channels as well as some talk.

    Here is proof that they are doing so,
    SIRIUS Satellite Radio - Sirius Satellite Radio Channel Guide, Sirius Radio Channel Guide, Sirius Radio Station Guide

    To complain, call

    888-635-5142 - Sirius Customer Service

    888-927-74653 - (Call Monday starting at 5:40 am EST)(The number for the Howard Stern Show)

    212-584-5100 - Sirius Employee Directory. Use it to get in contact with Karmazin, Mel and Greensteen, Scott.


    Help spread the word, Howard could be censored next.

    List of sites to spead the word to:

    XMFan
    Wackbag
    Orbitcast
    DigitalRadioForums

    If anyone has more post them please. Don't let them get away with this, we pay for this and they are ripping us off.

    Fight for your right to uncensored radio!


    Also, any Opie and Anthony/Bubba/Ferrall/Jay Thomas/Covino and Rich/other talk fans that want to contribute with the show phone numbers, I encourage you to do so and I will add them to this first post.

    Sorry, but I don't catch your drift.

    Both Sirius and XM have had "family friendly" channels since day 1. They weren't marketed as family friendly but it was known that certain stations would air only the clean version of songs so that those stations can be used as demo channels in stores. The only difference is now, it's explicitly stated that these channels don't contain offensive language.

    Note in your linked channel lineup that certain stations are missing: Faction, Shade 45, Howard, Sirius Stars, the explicit comedy channels like Foxxhole, among others. Those were always your stations that contained offensive language prior to the synergy of the XM and Sirius lineups and they still are the channels with explicit language.

    I noticed Octane censored Stand by Candlebox. I heard it a few days ago and it wasn't censored then. I'm not too concerned as I've heard plenty of other uncensored stuff since the merging of the programming, but for me personally, it's really annoying.

    I sent Sirius XM an e-mail about it. So, who knows? :)

    In the past I have noticed Squizz may have a censored and uncensored version of the same song in the system...I never really make anything of it.

    I think it's a mixup of censored songs in the system. It's never consistent. I hear 95% uncensored stuff since the merger, I think they are just re-organzing things, I still hear primiarily the uncensored versions.

    Ah, good point. Didn't even think of that.

    For what it's worth, Sirius has a list of the channels that they don't censor. They publish it on their website --> List of Uncensored Channels on Sirius

    Anything that is censored on those channels most likely wasn't done on purpose...

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH it's to beef up their offerings in the "family friendly" selection.

    This is bullshit. Fuck the family friendly! What the hell is going on here??????
