Save Special X!
XM Radio announced several changes to their service at CES 2004 yesterday. The biggest news was the move to commercial-free music, which is the equivalent of a kick in the stomach to their smaller rival Sirius. They also announced some lineup changes which included… Gasp!!! The elimination of Special X from the service!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Special X, this is a channel where you can go to always hear something different. And by different, I mean
XM says that some of the programming will move to other channels, but even if that is the case, much of their programming just didn’t fit into a single category and probably won’t ever get played anywhere else. So, if you want to save Special X, send an e-mail to Lee Abrams, their Chief Programming Officer, and let him know you want to save Special X!
Hi. I found you by googling for “Save Special X” – It is my very favourite channel, and I’m really disappointed they’re axing it for more of the same old stuff.
