This is not the primary time Sirius prospects received themselves all in a tizzy after they thought certainly one of their beloved stations was being faraway from the platform.
Mother and father all over the place are most likely nicely acquainted with Kidz Bop: the family-friendly tunes that take well-liked songs and covers them with extra tamed-down (lyrically) variations of well-liked songs with kids singing the vocals.
As a dad, it is grating and annoying for me to listen to these tunes, however even I am unable to deny the calming impact it has on kids. My little squirts love the Kidz Bop variations of “24Okay Magic” and “The Monster Mash.” Do I wish to jam spikes into my ears to make the taking part in cease? Completely. However the children find it irresistible, so I am going to play it.
Sirius XM did not absolutely cancel Kidz Bop although and it is nonetheless on the platform.
