SIRIUS/XM is launching a new channel October 17, “VOLUME” which will be the first of it’s kind talk radio channel that’s all about music. Given how many podcasts there are that also talk about music, this is a smart move.

I’m especially excited for Eddie Trunk’s show “Trunk Nation” moving to VOLUME and am really excited for Scott Ian’s (Anthrax) show “Never Meet Your Heroes.” October 17 I’ll be changing a pre-set button!
