Human Rights Groups Decry The XM/Sirius Merger

While the full approval from the Federal Government’s Antitrust division is still pending, the proposed merger of the nations two Satellite radio operators has hit a new snag. Activists are now up in arms about leaked reports that in order to limit duplication, the two companies will physically merge selected staff members as well.
The proposed combination of Sirius Jam_On afternoon host Stef Scamardo and XM Fungus program director Lou Brutus, reportedly leaves Scamardos husband, guitarist Warren Haynes concerned (although the mutation likely will remain a big booster of the Mule). Meanwhile, Jam_On’s Jonathan Schwartz will be fused with an XM DJ of the same name, who in a fortuitous turn of events, hosts XMs High Standards channel.

As result of these complaints, it now appears that an alternate proposed amalgam of Sirius Jam_On and XMs The Boneyard will be postponed pending proper parental filters.
