Boombox was a Breakbeat and rock remix radio station on Sirius Satellite Radio created and programmed by DJ Liquid Todd. Notable shows on the channel included "Automatic Static" with DJ Icey on Friday nights, an old-school lunchtime show with DJ Red Alert, the "Flash Mash" with Grandmaster Flash and "The Liquid Todd Show" which aired weekday afternoons.

The channel was canceled when Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio merged in 2008.[1] Currently Liquid Todd hosts a two-hour speciality show with a similar format called "Boombox Radio"[2] on the Sirius XM channel Alt Nation.
