Don't mean to come across as snippy, but if you don't like Sirius' uncensored nature, then you might want to check out XM. They clearly label their stations where you will find explicit language on, while Sirius' service is really 100% uncensored. I hear F-Bombs on most channels, etc, and don't mind it at all.

My advice: if you have children or frequently have business clients in you car, then go with XM. That way you know without a doubt that your channels/DJ's will be censored. Below is directly from XM's website:

You may block access to the channels on your XM radio that frequently use explicit language (XL).

The following channels are designated explicit language:
Channel Category
41 Boneyard Hard Rock
48 Squizz Hard Alternative
53 Fungus Punk, Hardcore & Ska
65 The Rhyme Classic Hip Hop
66 Raw Uncut Hip Hop
150 XM Comedy Uncensored Comedy
153 Laugh Attack Uncensored Comedy
202 High Voltage The Opie & Anthony Show

There is no reason for crass talk by the DJs on any of the mnusic channels. The DJs should talk about the music and music only. If I wanted dirty talk there are places for that. I'm way in the corner of BMW here.

No thanks. XM is for Pussies because they have no metal station. And when they did, it sucked. None-the-less, how many broadway shows have you been to, or if you don't get to NYC traveling shows or plays for matter where they have used foul language? Never heard a swear word in Cats. So, Seth ought to watch his fockin' mouth next time! Guess that doesn't set a good example but my daughter can't read yet.

Silly rabbit, SIRIUS is for adults.


Why does this discussion continue to pop up? You know as well as everyone else here that this is UNCENSORED Satellite Radio. And that it's up to each individual DJ (Even on Broadway's Best) whether or not they decide to use foul language. That's just the way it is and there's nothing whatsoever you or anyone else can do about it. And furthermore, the usual "what about my kids?" speech just doesn't hold any merit. Here's a suggestion...if you don't consider what the DJs are saying to be appropriate material for younger listeners...DON'T LISTEN WITH YOUR KID! I don't think it takes a genius to figure that one out. With the exception of Radio Disney and Kids Stuff...SIRIUS is not designed for children. If your listening to SIRIUS with your kid do so at your own discretion.

End of story.

As a parent of a seven year old, I've had to already sit down and explain to him that sometime they use naughty words on "Broadway's Best", but that doesn't mean it's ok for him to use those words. That's worked out pretty well for us. He understands that adults can use that language, but kids should not.

Personally, I could live without the profanity on Broadway's Best, but I think that the benefit of having my son exposed to and enjoy broadway show tunes outweighs my discomfort in having him exposed to profanity at such an early age. I've learned that in our society, it's pretty much a losing battle to keep them from being exposed from profanity. It's everywhere.

Besides, Seth talks so fast, half the time I can't understand what he's saying anyway!

The lyrics for Cats were written in the early 1900's. Listen to some of the current shows like Spamalot, Producers, & Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and you'll hear explicit lyrics.

Some of us like Seth just the way he is.

What do parents do when they play something from the TONY Award winning Avenue Q? Many of the songs have profanity and deal with sex...

Hopefully, they have the commonsense not to have the kiddies around.

I know profanity can be part of everyday speech but is it really necessary? Look at Howard, while most of his topics do venture into the profane, he still tries to keep some decorum. Can't say much for anyone else on 100, except for Robin. I don't think I have ever heard her say a swear in her everyday speech.

Don't get me wrong, I am no fan of the FCC, either. I just think some people ought to choose their words a little more carefully when in a public environment.

Do you ever hear Martha swear?

Maybe you should take your own advice.

You obviously haven't listened much lately because Robin's been cursing like a sailor during some shows.

This isn't a public environment. It's a private service free from FCC rule that people are paying to hear.

Not Martha, but I've heard her daughter Alexis curse on several occasions. On both Howard and her own show...on Martha's channel.

I don't consider Sirius a true "public environment" either. You have to pay to access the service and you can turn it on and off at your own discression. And you can block channels that you don't want to ever listen to. If you "accidentally" stumble across some bad langauge, it was completely avoidable in 99.9% of the cases I'd say.
