You would think that Sirius would give me the time of day... wouldn't you? Guess what? They wont so much as throw me a tiny second hand wet chewed bone.
I invite you all to continue to pile onto this thread. Tell your friends, spread the word, and I will make sure to send it to Sirius. That being said, you guys can add this link to your emails as added proof, you don't need me to do it!
ok, Ill pile on!
I subscribed to Sirius over XM BECAUSE of Boombox and did a LIFTIME subscription! Yep, Im a little pissed about this. Alt Nation is cool, BPM and Area are ok but they just aint (sorry, native Texan here) cuttin it.
Boombox and Backspin had a really different sound, very original programing, I listened at work everyday
Bring back Boombox and Backspin, make an old(er) nice guy happy and fix your f**kup please. You dont want to end up like US auto makers do ya?
Thanks, Big J.

PS, I did email Sirius and got a real reply, lots of words that sounded good but said nothing.
I am so disappointed with the new lineup! I called today to cancel both of my radios, but kept one after the CSR told me they would be adjusting the channel lineup after the first of the year (no info on what stations they will bring back). I did drop the other sub in hopes that would help send the message, but kept one in hope of hearing boombox again one day. I plan to get rid of the remaining radio subscription in Feb if they do not bring back boombox. Might as well listen to free radio, rather than pay to hear the same thing on sirius -- since they got rid of anything unique and just play mostly mainstream.
GIVE US A REASON TO KEEP OUR SUBSCRIPTION, SIRIUS, PLEASE!!!
for what it is worth..... Emailed support AGAIN and linked them to this post. Hopefully they are actually paying attention and not just routing any complaints to a big pile of "who gives a @#%@"
I just took it upon myself to go drop off an opinion or two on as many finance boards as I could find about my opinion of the SIRI stock. I let them know that I as well as many other upset subscribers would be canceling and they might take a big fat revenue hit in the very near future. I would encourage you all to share your opinions with Sirius's valued shareholders as well. I'm sure they would like to know how we all feel about the service now.
My Letter to:
I am writing with the utmost frustration at the recent changes to your channel lineup. All of the original channels have been shelved for yet more top 40/rap/rock main stream music. The very same music I can flip to terrestrial channels and hear for free… and TRUST ME we have enough to flip thru so you don’t have to hear commercials so you’ve lost that edge too. I personally am a fan of electronic music… So you are probably thinking “we have Chill, Area, and BPM” well two of the stations are identical. My station of choice was Boombox. The sub Genre played on this station was original and not found via any other format/source. I was advised to check out Alt Nation but have found it to be as close to Boombox as opera is to gangster rap.
I have been a customer for several years happily listening but now I will be calling to cancel my subscription due to poor choices made by Sirius XM programming managers.
P.S. I noticed there is quite a movement growing on the internet because of this. The same tech savvy base that launched Sirius to what it is today. My advice is that you listen to the people that raised you to what you are today if you want to continue to be successful in the future.
And yes, they did recommended a show on AtlNation gear towards BoomBox, but they didn't say when it'll be aired.
Since BoomBox was dropped I no longer listen to Sirius. Hmm... maybe I should cancel my subscription and save my money.
