Hello from the Broads, yes Molly and Christine

Hello to all our listeners,
Thank you for waiting so patiently thru all the best of's. We are still in negotiations with Sirius XM and miss our live shows. So much happening with Lost, American Idol and The Bachelor...
Thank god bikini girl didn't make it thru, do you like the new set up for the final 12? They are only taking the top 3 and then going back for wild cards? Confusing?? Molly thinks this season of Lost is boring, things need to start happening...lil cheesy for Molly! How great is The Bachelor? How about that episode with Naomi with the bird. Christine is not sure how she feels about Molly and Melissa being in the bottom 2 but we shall see because next week DeAnna returns...

Keep checking the website for updates, whether it is blogs or a pod cast on where are they now. Hang in there with us! We miss our listeners and Molly even misses the peanut gallery!!!

What are the broads doing right now:

Molly wishes she could drink wine but instead is eating Christine's turkey Chili and complaining about her stomach being bloated!!!

Just discovered the Broads a couple of weeks ago. I'm a 41 year-old mom of two who lives in Memphis, TN and who find the Broads so fun to listen to!

Yippee for Broads!

I think the Broads are still in contract negotiations with Sirius XM. I heard they are going to once a week. I'm sure they would have loved to be talking about Christian Bale right now.

I heard that too so hopefully they'll be back soon. Come back Molly and Christine!!! We miss you!!!

I'm glad that I started making my own "best of" on my tape recorder. I figured I would do that just-in-case somehting happened. I wish I started doing this a few years ago.

What the heck is up with the missing Broads...Hey XM executives... I am one of THOSE listeners that will cancel two XM accounts if the Broads are cancelled. Dr. Laura SUX who wants to listen to that Bit@h for hours on end...not me.

Well, I guess the Broads still aren't back. I just read that Sirius is one of the companies that my not back it past 2009. Well, at least I can listen to salad days best of's :o)

Well, repeats are still playing, but XM has taken them off the list of hosts for their channel. So it doesn't look good. Broads - can you please tell us what's going on??? We're dying without you!!!

I was pissed at the fact there were no more repeats, as i work nights and connot here the live show. I was going to cancel my subcription to XM but instead went and bought a Skyfi3 so i could record the show. Now I am reading they might not be back. Not happy XM! If the Broads are not back on a daily bases I will cancel this time for sure, 2 subcriptions. What the hell is going on!

PS: XM exec's. If I wanted Sirius programming I would have bought a Sirius radio. Broadminded is the reason I started a subscription in the first place.

I miss the broads too! I KNEW this merge was a HUGE mistake! I loved the old XM. If its not broken why try to fix it??? I am so mad and what sux is that we cannot control it. If I wanted Sirius I would have gotten it! We did not ask for this. They are going to lose listeners! I listen to the music too and have some great songs recorded BUT I NEED BROADMINDED!! I THINK THEY DESERVE THEIR OWN CHANNEL. IF THEY CANCEL THE BROADS THEY WILL REGRET IT. A AVID LISTENER SINCE 2005.

Anonymous said...

I really wish Siriusxm would bring back the Broads or at least tell us what is going on. I listen to the Broads everyday while at work and they continually make me laugh. The Dr. Laura show is just depressing and I get a headache if I listen to her as she wines. Please bring back the broads.

Anonymous said...

I hate not knowing what The Broads are thinking about current events. What a loss!! I'm sure the decision-makers are a bunch of grown up frat guys in suits with business degrees who know nothing about what listeners want. (nothing against frat dudes or business guys who are fans...you know what I mean).

What is going on?? I LOVE BROADMINDED! I had a bad feeling when I heard the "best of..." again. Please bring Christine and Molly back!!

Christine and Molly, please let us know what is going on with you if you are not able to come back. We love you!

I hope Howard Stern is happy. Because of his $100 mil a year, a lot of people are going to be out of work. He should be like the soap stars and take a pay cut so people can keep their jobs. I'm sure the exec's at Sirius will be taken care of with millions.

I miss the broads. I have been listening to them for two years. I love their take on things and their recap on IDOL. I miss them. I will cancel my XM, it is one of the only channels and programs that I listen to. XMSirrius need to get thier act together and put together programming that people listen to and is different from the same old thing on radio. I can't listen to one minute of Dr. Laura.

I'm close to just canceling even if XM doesn't cancel the Broads. This is rude to the fans to not let them know what is going on. We are the ones that are paying them.

I agree. If they are not back on Monday 16th, LIVE. I am cancelling my two accounts. Broads let us know what is up. I dont' have Facebook to find out what is going on. I just went on XM website and looked at the host bios and The Broads are not listed. Give me a break...Dee Snider and Dr. Laura on the same channel...WTF??? That channel looks like a snore fest...All the new host are a bunch of NYC old people....YAWN.

So much for the power of paid radio! I knew it would suck when these two "merged" and Sirius "took over" XM. Now they don't even have the common courtesy to let the "old XM" listens know what is going on with their favorite show?? What a bunch of BS! Come on XM "former execs", reach down and grab a pair and stand up for the folks who matter-and it ain't the AS* your kissin' at Sirius!! Where the H*** are our Broads!!

This is bordering on just plain rude. I understand if there are negotiations or some other legal crap going on but could the producers or programmers or SOMEONE at least say what the hell is going on? At this point I'd take a "programming is being adjusted or contract negotiations are in progress" B.S. message, just so I know the Broads are alive and well. Although to be honest it is nice to hear Shari back on the really old re-runs! I miss her so much! For the love of God, please let us know what is happening to this show!!!!!

P.S. Sirius sucks and that's why I originally bought XM. What a joke. The jokes on me.

Frustrated Fan said...

Called XM Sirius yesterday to cancel my subscription, and got talked into keeping it for two more months. They told me that there would be a lot of scheduling changes in the next few months. No reassurance, of course, that Broadminded would be on the sched., so I may still cancel.

Doesn't anybody know somebody connected to the show who can tell us what's going on?

I am with all of you. My XM has gone insane. Okay, cancel the repeat but to replace it with back to back same episodes of one hour shows???? Or 12 hours of Deepak Chopra. I respect a lot of the the new programs but don't screw over Broad listeners with less and less and expect us to renew a subscription only to hear the same stuff looping over and over.

Get your jobs done and get the Broads back - now!

I couldn't find any current info on their myspace or website or on xm.com, so glad to see you guys here!

I have to listen to Cosmo radio now, as the only decent substitute, and decent is a lose term. UGH!

Oh, I WILL cancel if there is no broads. I have no problem with that.

I don’t yet have anything that I can tell you yet, because, as you know, we are in business discussions with Molly and Christine. We won’t be able to say anything publically until those discussions are concluded, but we’re all working to conclude them as fast as possible, and I did want to respond to your letter to at least tell you that.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the Broads!
It is the main reason we keep our subscription. Will have to reconsider if the monthly budget wants to continue to put out for XM any longer. With MP3 players in our cars, we don't need the music channels like before. I believe that the secret to XM radio success is to keep shows like BROADMINDED scheduled!

You need to bring the broads back ASAP, I am tired of the same ol run of the mill radio you're playing there is more to satelite radio than Sports and News. How many of those channels are there get rid of one and bring back the broads EVERYDAY. Sports and News we can see on TV, XM had a good thing going and now it's all F@%#ed up.

I joined the masses and sent my email to everyone on the list, too. I was polite, but really emphasized to them how popular the show is and how many people subscribe just to hear the Broads.

I know they are still in negotiations, but it can't hurt for them to realize how many fans this show has. My weekday afternoons are just not the same
and after all of this crazy stuff with idol and the bachelor - I keep wanting to hear how Christine and Molly would respond.

Maybe the podcast is the way to go. I would definitely download and listen to any podcast the Broads would do. I would even pay with the money I would save from my cancelled xm subscription. (he he)

Hi Vanessa,

I get what you are saying, but it would break every confidentiality rule of negotiations for me to discuss any intricacies or project time frames. As a business, we have strict procedures that govern when and how we can announce agreements. It kills me not to be able to tell you more details, but all I can do is ask for patience. Hang in there!

I want them to broadcast later in the day, like they did originally.

I'd like Shari back on the show, at least part-time. (She's a much better interviewer/listener than Molly. Sorry.)

And I do not want the Broads on the same channel as Dr. Laura. The broads belong on a raunchier channel at a raunchier time!

I also called on Monday of this week and spoke with Teresa at 877-967-4672 x. 36619 but she wasn't much help either. She did give me a three month credit to my account and told me she was putting me in "the spreadsheet". As she explained it, that is where the programmers see who calls and why.

If the Broads don't come back, I will more than likely be canceling. What was a great station to listen to most of the day is now like listening to nails scarping a chalk board.
I HATE HATE HATE Dr. Laura, and the rest of the shows are all crap.

I called to voice my complaint to XM the other day and was told that Take 5, the station that the Broads were originally on was not "owned" by XM.

Any station that broadcast a commercial, even those stupid 800 # products are owned by someone. Who that "someone" is no one could tell me.

My guess is the Broads are not necessarily negotiating with Sirius XM but with the "someone".

So. does it even matter if we call and email all?

Keep up the emails and phone calls, it is working! Hopefully only one more week of reruns and the Broads will be back. Fan support is SO important we must keep the Broads on the air!!

I was told to write directly to channel 155 and let them know my concerns. I wrote: the Broads are the only show on 155 that makes me laugh and forget about these trying times! Also they are the only show I listen to on 155 except 11:00am hr. of the abc news.

The Broadminded show is no longer on 155 line up!!

Good Luck Broads! We miss you and all of your great guests and your funny banter!

I have been an XM subscriber since july 2004. I have 4 radios. I will disconnect all 4 radios and tell everyone I know that "XM does not listen to its subscribers about programming issues" if you don't bring back The Broads. Yea, you can take it as a threat. Boycotting is my only option to make clear my discontent with the lack of Broadminded in the afternoon. Please put them back on the air!

Each day I turn on 155 at 12:00, hear the into for "best of" and turn it off. Who wants to listen to ancient shows??

This should be last week of reruns (keep your prayers going and your fingers crossed)so be patient.

I will not renew my subscription if the broads are cancelled. First you cancelled my favorite music channel and offer flight 26. (yuck!)now this. Forget it!!! I am done!

I sent my emails to everyone that twinmom said. I haven't gotten a response though. If the broads are gone I am too! I have been pissed since the merger screwed up al the channels that I liked and the music that I listened too. This really bites!!!!

here is my latest reply:
Dear Roxanna,



Thanks very much for expressing your support for Molly, Christine and BROADMINDED. I appreciate your taking the time to write.



I don’t yet have anything that I can tell you yet, because, as you know, we are in business discussions with Molly and Christine. We won’t be able to say anything publically until those discussions are concluded, but we’re all working to conclude them as fast as possible, and I did want to respond to your letter to at least tell you that.



Thanks again for putting a good word in for The Broads.



All the best, Jeremy

Give me a break...how complicated are these negoiations. I am canceling tomorrow. I am tired of waiting one more week....one more month. F-all of them XM, Sirius and the Broads...Ciao forever paid radio. You all are a bunch of suckers waiting thru 2 months of reruns............

Aymee said...

who (anonymous at 1:54) is telling us this might be the last week of reruns. Show yourself are you legit or just someone screwing with us??? Probably someone from sirius wanting us to keep paying for nothing just so they can keep feeding us bullshit!

THIS SUCKS......

Anonymous said...

I received the exact same e-mail from Jeremy last week. I am waiting one more week before I cancel.

The new format on 155 totally sucks. I enjoy GMA but now that's it. Doctor Laura is so bad for women, Barbara Walters is so old and insignificant and who the hell is this Deepak guy? IAMS Pet hour? Give me a break.

Here's a suggestion for Sirius XM move the BROADS to the Cosmo station. At least they will be relevant there.

Sorry to say, I think we've lost our Broad's... I called the Broad's 800# to leave BITHCY message again, and there machine now say's Welcome to the "PULSE" and to leave a message for one of there DJ's.... I'm cancelling me subscription to Sirus..... you suck the BIG POLE......

I finally got 2 responses to the emails that I sent yesterday. I don't think that it's looking too good. Here's what I got:
From Zellner, Jon" Jon.Zellner@siriusxm.com
Sorry about the Broadminded show. We did have to make some difficult decisions about some of the shows on certain channels. Unfortunately, the audience on Take 5 was relatively low and some of the costs associated with that channel became tough to justify.

Thanks again for writing. Please direct any future programming comments directly to me.

Best,

Jon

All the best??? The best would be to put the Broads back on the air!!!!!!!!! Screw them and their bullshit stories!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I think because of fan response they will be back on the air, maybe next week. I noticed today that they are repeating a much more recent show with just Molly and Christine, I think that's a good sign. Keep up the emails and prayers and keep your fingers crossed!

I hope so. This was a lot of work for the fans to be doing this sort of thing in times like this. The higher ups should already know what the fan base is like for all the shows and not make us frett over the threat of them cancelling Broadminded.

Anonymous said...

After the 2 responses that I received that were very contradictory (3 posts ago) I emailed Jeremy again to have him clear up the "confusion." This is the email I just received from him:

Sorry for the confusion, we have a lot going on. Our agreement is up with the Broads, we'd very much like to keep them if possible and are in negotiations for a new deal, and are running best-of shows while we negotiate. Fingers crossed for a good and quick resolution.

All the best, Jeremy

It's just more BS!!!

This blows...Sirius is just lying so they don't get a wave of people canceling their subscriptions. They are just leading the listeners on while they spirl into BK...

That's too bad. It sure doesn't look good. The Broads are by far the best thing on XM-Siris. I enjoy the music stations but the only talk worth listening to is Broadminded. I've been a listener since 2006.

Leslie in NJ said...

Yes!!! Hurry up and come back! You are the only reason why I have XM in the first place!!! The POD Casts may be the way to go! I will download the only problem is that we will not be able to interact. Jason you are missed also!!

I just came across this blog and was happy to find it! I find it hard to believe that Sirius is still in negotiations with the Broads after all this time. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK.

If Broadminded is suppose to be back next week, they should be able to announce something on Friday via the blog. I will be disappointed if they keep us holding on through the weekend with wondering thoughts.

Oprah is refreshing her channel on 3/17, so maybe the Broads will be back on by them. This is getting beyond rude by all people involved.

Someone with more energy than me needs to write Ryan Seacrest and let him know how much good the broads did for his show. Ive been watching for years and without the commentary from the Broads, its lost its luster for me. Im rocking the "LOST" Netflix now. If you havent yet, you should.

I really miss the broads. i just discovered they cancelled the best comedy channel - national lampoons comedy radio. They played funny crank calls from different comedians, etc. I want the OLD XM BACK! The broads need their own channel. I LOVE music but I need other things to listen to as well. WHY did they merge??? I hate this. :(

We hope we am reading the last inputs correctly and the Broads are back on for good! The present line up on Take5 is painful to listen too. Keep GMA and the Broads and bag the rest! We want live Broads and then a repeat show later in the day so we all can hear them either once or twice. It is worth it.

Here's my email today from Jeremy:
Hello,

Forgive the mass letter but I wanted to update you on the Broads since you took the time to write us with your support for the show. If you missed it, Molly and Christine got on the air for a few minutes yesterday at the beginning of their show to announce that they will be returning with live shows on this coming Tuesday. They announced that their new arrangement is that they will be on every weekday, again starting at noon, live from 12-2pm Eastern Time with a showcase of favorite moments from 2-3pm and a brand new replay of the show weeknights from 8-10pm Eastern, for people who can’t hear them midday and would like to listen later in the day. And they announced that they’ll be added to the Sirius lineup as well as the XM lineup soon, doubling their potential audience. Between the new replay and the Sirius addition, they will soon be reaching many more of you, more conveniently than ever before. Please tune in on Tuesday if you can. Thanks again for your support of Molly and Christine!

All the best, Jeremy

I'm not sure why there are so many comments slamming Dr. Laura. What does she have to do with the Broads getting their contract together? I'm not her biggest fan, but I don't think she had anything to do with us being stuck with "best of" for the last month and half.....

Anonymous said...

Dr. Laura sucks a$$. Why should we PAY to listen to her "holier than thou" crap on subscription radio??? How many people do you know that have naked tasteless pics on the internet, but go on preaching like they're God. She is HORRIBLE and needs to go. Did you notice how when she first came to XM, she would take calls from gay callers. I have never in 10 years heard her take a call from gay caller, but she sold out to satellite radio and had to have broader appeal. She constantly runs women down and makes excuses for me to be cheaters and wifebeaters....That is WHY she needs to go!!!!

Having said all that, I hope they can get their website updated, it's woefully outdated.

Hugs & Kisses broads!

Glad the Broads are back.They are the best thing XM155 has going for it. The changes Sirius made were the reason for the decline in listening. The other shows are really bad, especially Depoc!!!

Anonymous said...

Sirus/XM needs to stop the hesitation and allow the Broads to continue with this very entertaining show. It is the reason I have my XM. This show helps me move through my workday with ease. I've stopped listening over the past two weeks because the reruns are now being rerun multiple times, very annoying!!!

Anonymous said...

Thanks Twinmom for your 2/24 blog, noting the email addresses of the execs of Sirius/XM. I just emailed them ALL to let them know that many of us will cancel our XM account if they do not give their customers what we desire, the same slots and times that the Broads were broadcasting before all this craziness. some of the addresses did come back as not sendable but 3 of them are good. Also, thanks Broads for the update since XM customer service would not respond to any of my emails, inquiring as to where the broads are.
