    It would be fine with me if they removed all the sorry music channels. They sound like crap. Never play them anymore.

    You can subscribe to a "no music" package and avoid the fees ... but if you want one music channel the fee applies to the entire package cost. And the "no music" packages are not a bargain.

    Los Gatos,...
    What is happening wig with the cost of the music industry? We were going to see a concert in Denver next summer at the Broncos stadium. Tickets were $200! Not going to happen. My stepson just got tickets to see Yanni in San Jose in June, price...$200 each.

    I think it's time to cut back on some of my XM channels, go back to music only.

    No money for artists in record sales. Music revenue, although improving, is half what it was in the late 90s. Artists are using live performances to make up the money.

    I agree though, concert costs are crazy anymore, especially for any decent seats.

    It's all relative. I pay up to $500 per Broadway show ticket on a holiday jaunt to NYC every Dec. holiday season. I'm not going to whine about pocket change I use for Sirius all year.
