First Sirius zaps Electronica, Now Music Choice?

It was bad enough when Sirius canned Boombox but now it seems Music Choice has decided to merge their Dance and Electronica channels into one. I used to flip back and forth when there was something on the Electronica channel I didn’t care for but it seems like every time I tune in now, it’s all Dance all the time. What the heck happened to the Electronica? Do they break blocks up during the day?

No More Boombox on Sirius?

Great. I know Sirius and XM are trying to merge their content, especially on music but they dropped my favorite channel, Boombox. I don’t think there was equivalent content on XM so electro/breaks got dropped. The FAQ says to check out Alt Nation, which I already listen to. Alt Nation doesn’t have Boombox’s content.
