Assuming this is true, we are back into the clear. I can't tell you how happy I am, I'm going to go for a run in this cold weather just so I have a reason to listen to sirius again.

They are also offering Sirius customers who already have a life time membership, to get the best of xm on the life time for 100 dollars.

If this works out I'm on board. Man it feels so good that they are listening to there customers!

Hi Michael,

We're still settling in after the channel rearrangements and i'm taking into account what all our customers are saying. Happy to give you some new info.

Covino and Rich - I've added a replay of their 12n-3p show, 6p-9 (eastern). I'd love to get their fourth hour back and am talking to the guys about it - there are scheduling issues with the shows they do for music stations for sirius but i'm hopeful.

The censorship issue was a temporary glitch of rearranging some of our music stations. The only stations going forward that carry the radio edits of songs are the two stations with high kid listenership, Hits One and The Heat.

Thanks for the feedback, and particularly for supporting covino and rich and bubba. Stay well, Jeremy Coleman

I was all excited after reading the OP, but when I was listening today. I still heard censored songs, a few more uncensored but songs that were uncensored before the merger that are censored now.

Same here.

Octane last night, Kid Rock song was uncensored. Not a fan of hip hop, but turned it on today and it was uncensored.

Listened to Lithium this afternoon and Radiohead's "Creep" was the censored radio edit version.

My understanding is that it's going to take some time for the DJ's to weed out the censored songs and get them replaced with the uncensored version.

My theory is that if Sirius had the song that wasn't censored then they should be playing those. However if the stations got deeper cuts from the XM side that where censored, it might be awhile before those are updated.

Hopefully they get this worked out ASAP.

I believe it even says on D*'s channel line up that hip hop is uncut, but then sometimes D* doesn't always have the correct information up :rolleyes:
