Things I learned about SiriusXM Radio

We had a Ford Focus for 4 days and it came with SiriusXM Radio. It was an interesting time, but I’m still not sure that service is worth $10 – $20 a month. Here’s a handful of things I’ve discovered about the service and myself:

  1. There really is no need for a Grateful Dead station or a Bruce Springsteen station for that matter.
  2. Chris Matthews sounds even more insane when you’re listening to him and not watching him.
  3. Soul Town is possibly the best radio station ever created.
  4. The comedy stations are truly not funny.
  5. There are too many commericials, considering you’re paying for the service.
  6. Classical music while driving is dangerous for me.
  7. The Jazz station would be better if it was KJZZ.
  8. Countdown with Keith Olbermann is not made for radio.
  9. Nina Blackwood and  Swedish Egil are still alive.
  10. 80s Music > 90s Music.
  11. I am so over Pearl Jam, U2 and R.E.M.
  12. Traffic in Phoenix, Detroit and Las Vegas sounds worse than LA traffic.
  13. The Coffee House station increased my roadrage.
  14. The reggae station, The Joint, is nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be, but they do need to kick back on the Marley.
  15. The Latin stations are infinitely better than what’s played on broadcast.

That’s about it…for my listening choices. I thought it pretty neat there was a station that played Showtunes, but the ones I listened to I own already. I wonder though, what others get out of the service.
