Huzzah! If the FCC approves, we’ll be able to listen to both Howard Stern and the Sox with one tiny receiver and one monthly bill. Sirius and XM are planning a merger, and if it passes regulatory hurdles, those of us devoted to Howard, Bababooey, Artie, & Co. will also now be able to get local Red Sox radio broadcasts down here in the Big Apple without having to shell out another 13 bucks a month for a second service. As currently configured XM radio has an exclusive deal with MLB while those of us subscribing to Sirius get, uh, Nascar. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. This joining of forces just might make up for a small portion of the MLB Directv disaster. If it happens. Our fingers are crossed.
