That's funny! I think all fans know about the promotions (should I say various promotions). We get it! The best way to really sell Sirius's would be a nice discount on those Stellito's but I've heard they've been selling very well so there is little chance of that...S50s going super cheap, though and I would jump on it if it wasn't for Internet radio. I see no point in taping the show right now...If I miss it and can't catch it over the weekend, oh well! Although I should point out right now I'm listening to Wed's show (one of the best ever since the move!) for the third time. Lucky me!

Yea, I got one of the calls, trying to sell me an add-on subscription. Was kind of pissed about it since it's my cellphone. But there are more important things to worry about than this, at least for me.

I got the same thing. I thought that was pushing it a little far.

It's bad enough all the Sirius music channels are voice-tracked, but when even their sales calls are voice-tracked that's where I draw the line.
