And since Arbitron's customer base may depend on the perception that 
radio listenership is not declining, it is probably to their 
advantage not to report bad news.

I also noticed on the Sirius website that they are offering a 
lifetime subscription (the life of the radio) for $399 thru Jan 31. 
I'm quite tempted, especially considering the recent loss of one 
format in the area, but I think I'll wait until I buy my next car.
