{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} 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.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> Its former channel (as The 40s and 40s on 4) is currently occupied by Pitbull's Globalization Radio.<ref>"More changes at KRTH, big band station replaced with ‘Pitbull’s Globalization’" from Los Angeles Daily News (August 31, 2015)</ref>

The channel often billed itself as "The Savoy Express on Track #4", a reference to the passenger train travel common in the 1940s. 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 for it on Bing Crosby staff announcer Ken Carpenter. To match, the station logo now features a train itself.
