Liberty Media Corp. will lend Sirius/xm $530 million dollars. It also says S/xm has 20 million subscibers which means they should be bringing in, if I'm correct, over $200 million per month. I wonder why they can't get by on that? Could someone inform me?
what a sigh of relief!
"In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul."
The deal went through yesterday[somewhere around $500 million]so Sirius/XM is fine for the next year or 2.
That seems like a good fit for both parties involved. Hope it goes through.
Good to know you got shoes to wear when you find the floor.
They're working with John Malone of Liberty Media[Directtv]to try to work something out btw.
Shares of Sirius/xm rose 3 cents yesterday and are now at 13 cents a share. They need someone to refinance their debt to keep them out of bankruptcy.
Word has it Dish Network or Directtv are looking to take over XM/Sirius so bankruptcy might not be their only option.
I'm a bit concerned reading TxJeds comment above... Any truth to that? I, for one, would go into a sirius depression if it were to ever go away.
I'm glad this thread is here... I have a space to voice my appreciation for this station and the guy (that means everyone) who does what they do there...
Everyday, first thing i do when i get to work is put on my headphones and start streaming. Meetings get postponed or avoided because they take me away from my computer and the music that fills me with joy... i have to plan my bathroom breaks between songs and shows... people think i'm nuts when they catch me playing air guitar, dancing in my chair or sometimes singing out loud despite my best efforts not to... but it's all good and hasn't gotten me fired yet : )
One of the best parts of this daily experience for me (besides Today in GD History... LOVE that show...) is the station's ability to bring back the thrill of being at a show...not knowing what they're going to play next... and playing the guessing game... I can name that tune is 3, no, 2 notes.... WOO HOO I knew it!!! It's that comforting thrill like recognizing then embracing a long lost friend. These voices...that sound... like being in love. It's the sweet anticipation of what's coming next...and knowing that no matter what it is, it will be sweetness to the soul. Every song brings back great memories and quite simply, brings me comfort.... havin' a high time, livin' the good life...even if it is while i'm 'at work'. HA! if they only knew they paid me really good money to jam to dead tunes all day long!
So THANK YOU sirius 32... from one of your biggest fans, Janet from CT
"it goes to show you don't never know"...
Does anyone have another source for the schedule on concerts broadcast 3 times a day ? I've tried repeatedly to find out why the schedule is not updated or posted at all. I've put on a message on this site through feedback but have gotten no response. It's really frustrating to not know what shows to record in advance, we only have so much hard drive, I just want to know what's upcoming so I can record the shows I went to.Does't seem like a lot to ask since we do pay for this service! Serius is useless as far as caring about customer service or input, I've talked to at least 3 live bodies there(itself not an easy feat) and all have assured me that someone would get back to me, what a joke! Any help would be appreciated
It would be kinda cool if they would broadcast one show or more llive on the GD channel. From what I understand, Jimmy Buffett is going to broadcasting all of the shows on his upcoming tour live on his Radio Margaritaville channel on XM. That would be the best of course but I don't think it will happen that way with The Dead. But maybe they do like they did with NYE on play the show the next day.
