Stop Melvin Alan "Mel" Karmazin's "merge" scheme tomorrow. Pick up the phone and tell
Melvin Alan "Mel" Karmazin it's off. Then send Oprah, Snoop Dogg (The one and the only D O double G), The Rev. Al Sharpton and O&A over there to bust up Melvin Alan "Mel" Karmazin for dis-n XM like he has over the years. XM's got the quality and programming people want, there is no reason to sell out xm so that Melvin Alan "Mel" Karmazin can line his pockets for retirement. No reason at all to Uncle Tom to that white bread cracker.

Yes NAB Troll Stop the merger

*pokes at NAB* money time

It would be great to have the All-Star game streamed live on Sirius and XM- come on and get this done this week !

Not a scheme, just a simple business deal.

Wow, if this were on Sirius, I'd have to say consumers would benefit.

Hasn't Snoop been off XM for about a year now?
