EWTN on XM for XMAS

I got a note in my inbox today letting me know EWTN will be on XM Radio this Christmas Eve. Here is the message from EWTN's online newsletter:

Here's a special treat if you're an XM Satellite Radio subscriber!

On Sunday, December 24 (Christmas Eve) the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network will provide a 7-hour Christmas Special to XM Satellite Radio for broadcast on XM Live channel 200! From 6pm - 1am (ET), XM subscribers will hear the Solemn Mass of Christmas Eve celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI from St. Peter's Square in Rome, The World Over Live Christmas Special hosted by Raymond Arroyo, and the Solemn Mass of Christmas Eve from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.

* If you would like to hear EWTN Radio on XM permanently, contact XM Satellite Radio and passionately and consistently request XM to permanently add EWTN Radio to their line up. Always include your XM subscriber number! For further information, please email EWTN's Radio Marketing Director, John Pepe, at jpepe@ewtn.com

The EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network is honored to bring you continuous Christmas programming on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! You’ll hear live Masses from Rome, Washington DC and here in Alabama, joyous music from around the world, special Christmas editions of many of our live shows, and much more!

This is a nice gift from XM, since EWTN is sorely missed on that system while SIRIUS has 2 catholic stations now. I for one will be contacting XM with my subscriber number to let them know how much we need EWTN on their service. Call even if you don't subscribe and tell them you might if they carried it. Who knows, maybe we'll get something accomplished.
