As part of the Sirius XM Merger, DJs Bohdi and Grant Random were brought over from the now defunct XM station SquiZZ, as well as Big 'Uns, a countdown of the top 15 songs of the week on Saturdays at 2 pm, Sundays at 12 pm, and Wednesdays at 6 pm (all times Eastern). Octane, however, began taking on the playlist of Squizz after this, while still using the channel's S020-FM callsign on Mediabase.
