Now that it appears Bob Edwards is moving to this XM radio, I'm thinking about giving it a try. Not happy about it, but...

I see they charge about $10 a month, and you gotta buy a new radio or adaptor. I stopped contributing to local NPR stations when they canned Edwards, so this could just replace my old contributions to NPR.

Anybody have any experience with XM?

My nieghbor has it - He loves it but there are some places where it cuts out for awhile
I just can't see spending a dime to listen to the radio

except for a ballgame or two i seldom listen to radio anymore. too much yak,yak,yak,yak,yak,yak,yak,! i wanna hear music not some stooopid talk or call in show and i won't pay for radio, not now not ever.
after a few hour road trip recently my cousin asked why i didn't have the radio on, my response was WHY?

Radio is all I listen to    Posted 07-29-2004 at 12:35:53       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I don't have cable, satelite or antenna up on the mountain so the
TV's only good for video and DVD. I listen to NPR for news and
music, and of course "A prairie home companion". The thing I
liked about DMX and I suspect also makes XM great is being able
to get all one genre: classical, blue grass, jazz in it's various
incarnations, regae, world beat, etc.

I love music in my car. I had my car inspected yesterday and when I got back in my car there was no sound!
I panicked; cause if anyone turns my car radio off I may have to click the on off switch fifty times before it will come on again.
That is one of the reasons I want a new car!!
Thank goodness the inspector had only turned it down, not off.
He said he liked the silence.

UH HUH, that's what I always said about TV! Now when I wanna hear music I can hear exactly what I'm in the mood for, 50' thru the 90's by the decade. Country New, or Hanks place, Gospel, or Rap. I've paid for my radio all my life, mostly with my sanity hehehe I figure $10.00 a month is much cheaper, if fact it's cheaper than this contraption I'm tied to right now.

Had something similar in    Posted 07-29-2004 at 08:55:56       [Reply]  [Send Email]
When I was at the University of Pitsburgh I had something
similar: DMX Digital Music Express. If XM is anything like that it
would be awesome! I'm thinking of getting it up on the
mountain myself. I just don't see a downside.

Yep I have and won't be without it. I've had it for about a year now, and only use it at work when I'm driving truck. (10-14 hrs per day)
If you like commentary, you'll like it, every take known to man on any subject. EVEN GLEN BECK!
I listen to alot of old time radio, and comedy, as well as the discovery channel. After 30 years of driving, I'm about music logged. This gives me a great range of channels, and usually more than I need.
If you haven't been there, go to their web site and you can see hour by hour whats on alot of the 100 channels.
Good luck

I got xm radio as a b-day gift. Got it in the car and a home boombox. My productivity at home has doubled.
I am a big radio fan, rather than tv so its good for me. There is lots of choice to keep me happy.
The radio antenna has to see the sattalite so be sude it can where you are.

No, but I'm saving my shekels in a can at home and I am planning to get it. Radio reception here in the mountings ain't too great.
Run over to the Tales board and see if you can roust out Matt. He has it in his new truck. Course, he's just a young whippersnapper and probly wouldn't appreciate Bob Edwards.
FYI, in case you didn't know it, Dish just added all the Sirius satellite music channels. I listen to #s 6035 and 6037 a lot.
