Just thought I would start up a topic talking about satelite radio.

Do you have it?
What do you think of it?


I got it because their is about 3 stations in the area... One of them is decent but I get it on the satelite radio and the two others are a community radio and a retro radio... Plus they are all in french and well french music, let's just say it's not my favorite.

My uncle also has it but he lives up in Wabush, Labrador. So once you get out of city limits you complety lose the one radio stations.

I've had Serius for two or three years now. I got it when I had to commute about 60 miles a day, one way. Even though I no longer have that particular job, I've kept the Serius because I could listen to new music months in advance of regular radio stations, and I could listen to a huge variety.
My sister in law has XM, and has tried Serius. Of the two, she seems to prefer XM. Oh well. gk

My radios all use antennae aka rabbit ears. Frequently when I stand in front of the radio it goes all static. Hmm. I must produce electrical interference.

No don't have it won't get it. I can get enough free on air and internet and my personal collection. If I did I would have to get the one that doesn't pay Stern.

Yes Howard Stern, don't want hijack the thread but I find him an abusive person. He makes $$ off of people with weakness by exploiting them.

I have had XM for about 8-9 years now. I use to be in collections and spent alot of time traveling. Since I stopped spending as much time in my car I did cancel it.

I enjoyed.

I use XM which is pretty nice.

It is nice when you travel you don't have to find another radio station.
