I meant to post about this last week, but Sirius has been promoting Big 4 Radio with the main bands being Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. I don’t know how long it’s going to be on for, I thought it was over yesterday, but it’s still on today and every time I turn to Sirius Internet radio channel 812, it’s still on and playing Metallica. Also, as of May 8th, it looks like they’ll be starting a Metallica music channel. I don’t know how long it’ll last, but I have to say, it’s about time they did something like that. I’d love to turn to a specific station, whenever I wanted and hear Metallica!
Metallica Presents: Big 4 Radio
Now on Satellite Radio (Liquid Metal, Sirius Ch. 27 and XM Ch. 42) hear Metallica Presents: Big 4 Radio, a commercial-free music channel featuring the music of four of heavy metal’s biggest legends: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax.
