I recieved an email today urging all shareholders to vote on the merger via website or telephone. This means that the FCC has offered an approval based on shareholder input. I wish I could squeeze money out of a stone right now and invest it.

I actually do hole about 100 shares of XM stock, I'm still waiting to see how this all goes.

My biggest concern is that I really don't like siruis, and frankly, I hate sports and news channels which seem to be building up. I got XM for the MUSIC channels, I can go between whatever I want, and its not 3-4 decades crammed on 1 station.

Most importantly is XM82 The System, there simply are no electronic stations in the U.S, let alone good ones, and to top it off, its main DJ is zoltar who brought his show to it, best it can be.

If 80-84 go, my contract will be cancelled

I suggest you give the electronic channels on Sirius a try. Boombox has the best programming I've heard. Chill is also a good channel.

Sirius gives prospective member a 3 day trial membership.

not even close, spent an hour in a cx-7 with siruis, I'm not impressed at all, XM82 - The System is vastly superior, if nothing eles, 8 of the top 10 DJ's in the world have dedicated radio shows on XM, hell armin van buren has like 2 hours each week

I have yet to hear anything half decent on siruis.

and what bothers me the most is that satalite radio seems to be moving more towards talk shows and sports, exactly what I won't stand for even on free radio

Sirius has a revolving channel dedicated to The rolling stones, the who, and the grateful dead so far. Lithium 24 is the best 90s alternative station I've ever heard. I've had both, and Sirius is the better of the two IMO.

I do admit I found my electronic music tracks to download on XM however.

jdubs, so does XM, most of the upper 40's and low 50's

there is such a better choice of music on XM.

i'll say it again, I'm disgusted by talk shows and sports, sports above all eles, I don't finding care.
