    Didn't know where else to ask this, so I'll ask it here. I got a new car yesterday (!!!), and when I was browsing the brand new XM radio that came with it, I noticed Star Wars Radio, on station one forty-something. So, what kind of stuff plays on that station? Does anyone know? Thanks.

    It was on Channel 146, and it's a temporary channel, probably over by now. They were re-broadcasting Celebration 5 from August 2010; they said they were doing it as a feature for Thanksgiving weekend and to get people ready for Celebration 6 next summer. I listened to it live when C-5 was happening and I listened to the re-broadcast last weekend; some pretty good stuff, including a funny interview with Mark Hamill.

    Sadly though, "Star Wars Radio" is not something that is broadcast on satellite all the time. That being said, I still find satellite well worth the money, as terrestrial radio in my area sucks.

    Huh, sad that it's over, I guess. Wish it was a longer-running thing, with podcasts from different websites on it and original interviews. Oh well, hope it's back again for CVI. Thanks.

    And here I was hoping this would be a thread about the Radio Drama.

    Oh well.
