Well, it’s come down to this — Coke has finally bought out Pepsi.? That is, two major players with virtually the same product have decided that consolidation is really best for everyone! (Sirius and XM to Merge).? While I feel somewhat bad about the fact that they can’t make any money, maybe they should think about offering more diverse and user-driven programming choices rather than a semi-less annoying version of FM.
I was actually just sitting on the fence about buying an XM radio — solely for Sonic Theater.? Now I’m not so sure.? Our fate, as media listeners, falls now in the hands of the FCC.? May God have mercy on all of us.

After the apocalypse, there will only be one company that owns everything: Micro-Oil-Media, Inc., formed by the descendents of Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch and Saudi King Fawt.
Fortunately, they will spend billions on radio drama as a propaganda tool.
