Metallica returns to satellite radio

Greetings. I received the following announcement in my email Inbox regarding Metallica's return to satellite radio. Personally, since hearing that Metalllica had a dedicated channel on XM Radio, this was something I was really looking forward to when signing up with Sirius last fall. I was slightly disappointed to discover that the dedicated band channels on XM weren't carried over when the XM and Sirius channels merged last november. Only slightly though; it seems that the Mighty Mat are given their due on several of the Sirius rock/metal channels that i regularly tune into. However, when i read this email from Sirius, I was furiously rubbing my hands together with glee. According to the Orbetcast blog, it looks like this channel will be around for about a month. I'm all in it, and always hoping that Sirius/XM will bring back the band channel for "All Metallica" at some point. Until then, starting this Saturday, I'll be enjoying the Manditory Metallica any time of the day or night. Enjoy.
