It appears that the format on XM Radio’s Boneyard has definitely changed. Their new format is, “Classic Rock that is Hard and Heavy”. Over the last couple of days I have heard heavy cuts from Motley Crue, Metallica, Megadeth, Rush, Aerosmith, The Cult, Black Sabbath and more. I can’t say that I have heard anything that truly falls under the hair metal envelope, so that is one major change to the Boneyard.
Still no sign of the familiar “Bone Me” either.
The station seems to be a little heavier than it used to be, but I have heard no new songs on the Boneyard and that is a complete disappointment.
Hopefully, it will get better as time goes on, but it is definitely not the same.
If you are an XM Radio listener, you have probably been anxiously awaiting the return of The Boneyard, to XM Radio. Wait no more! The Boneyard has returned to XM Radio Channel 53!
On the drive home tonight, I heard Iron Maiden, Scorpions and Aerosmith. I didn’t hear the familiar “Bone Me”, but I am hopeful that the station will return to the format it once had. Time will tell.
XM Hard Rock Fans….Sirius XM has been changing stations over today, as
they try to align their two satellite networks.
XM41 The Boneyard became Hair Nation.
XM44 Fred became First Wave (Classic alternative music from artists like Depece Mode, U2 & the Smiths)
XM46 Top Track became Classic Vinyl (Classic Rock from the 60′s and 70′s)
XM47 Ethel became Alt Nation (New alternative rock from artists like The Killers, Green Day & Weezer)
XM48 Squizz became Octane (New hard rock from artists like Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold & Slipknot)
XM49 Big Tracks became Classic Rewind (Classic Rock from the 70′s & 80′s)
XM54 Lucy became Lithium (Alternative and grunge music from the 90′s)
The Boneyard will return to the XM dial in January on XM53, the current home of the 24 hour AC/DC Network.
Sirius and XM subscribers can view the channel changes at the links below.
Last night, Eddie Trunk announced that XM41 The Boneyard is going to be removed off of the XM Radio Dial. Last night was the last show of Eddie Trunk Live of 2008. Sometime before the end of the week, The Boneyard will disappear off of XM41 forever.
Before you start screaming………………this is a temporary move as Sirius XM are juggling stations. Starting January 15th, The Boneyard will return to the XM dial, on channel 53, the station that currently holds the 24 Hour AC/DC channel. For you Sirius listeners, you will also get The Boneyard on channel 19.
While I hate to see my favorite station disappearing off of the dial, and as much as I think this is a boneheaded move by XM, I am glad to see that the station will return bigger and stronger, broadcasting over both satellite networks. Eddie Trunk Live is scheduled to return on January 19th.
