  • 40s Junction is a commercial-free music channel on the Sirius XM Radio platform, broadcasting on Sirius XM channel 73 as well as Dish Network channel 6073. (DirecTV formerly carried the channel as well, on channel 801, but as of February 9, 2010 had dropped Sirius XM programming in favor of SonicTap). The channel mostly plays big band, swing, and hit parade music from 1936 to 1949, with occasional songs from the early 1950s. Until May 7, 2015, the station was known as '40s on 4, and programming was broadcast on channel 4 as part of the Decades lineup of stations. It was moved to channel 73 to be nearer to stations featuring similar genres of music such as jazz and standards. For the first four months on channel 73, the station was known simply as '40s, before being rebranded as 40s Junction on August 13, 2015. Channel 4 is currently occupied by Pitbull's Globalization Radio. Both the 40s Junction name and the channel's longtime nickname, "The Savoy Express", refer to the passenger train travel common in the 1940s. It also refers to the popular 1941 jazz song Chattanooga Choo Choo. The original "Station Master" (Program Director) for the channel was Marlin Taylor, with Bob Moke as Music Director. Both have since departed, and the channel is currently programmed by Human Newman. The voice of the channel is Lou Brutus, who models his announcing style after that of Bing Crosby staff announcer Ken Carpenter. In keeping with the railroad theme, the channel's logo now features a train itself. (en)
