Sirius Radio is haunting my car

Hello everyone. After buying my car I thought I was going crazy because I thought I was hearing whispering between songs or anytime the radio got quiet. Then I thought it was wind noise, but I heard it stopped and after intense sanity doubting followed by a moment of silence, I realized I was hearing the demo station for Sirius Radio. Is there a way to just turn it off completely so it is not possessing my other sources?

My 2010 does this as well at higher volumes - though notably, not in the phone side. Iíd assume itís a design flaw in the radio.

Canít say if it was ever fixed though. In my case, the volume required is high enough that I donít tend to notice it.
