    Weird that they’re getting rid of the new/breaking music channel, 20on20, instead of just moving it to Internet-only. It’s a jukebox so it couldn’t have been too time-consuming to program.

    They need to reconfigure BYU Radio 143 to actually load on the radios. No matter what I do or how many times I call in to support I am unable to get BYU radio on the satellite Radio.
