You know it. I have had sirius for about two years and on 17, you would hear a dead tune every once in a while. Now 24/7. As a matter of fact listening to it now over the PC.
Good stuff,
PEACE,

Is the merger with XM still on the horizon?

I pay like $12 a month.

I believe the whole monopoly thing was holding up the proposed merger, last I heard. Don't know any more than that.

My brother and I have a family plan and I pay $8 a month. Its worth every cent- 24/7 Dead, PLUS Howard Stern, as brilliant as ever, blues channel, jazz, EVERY NFL and NBA game, minimum commercials, etc, etc. I haven't listened to "regular" radio in over two years.

I could never go back to regular radio. I love Sirus.

I listen to Howard Stern, Blues Channel, Jam station, coffee house (original acoustic music),some jazz and of course THE DEAD CHANNEL!

THey have a station that plays deeper cuts from classic albums which is great too.

Well worth the money.

Listening to a great 11/20/73 show right now on Sirius 32. I love it because they play full shows. I pretty much listen every waking hour I am not working or playing music myself...I HIGHLY recomend it.

Sirius is FANTASTIC.I purchased my original unit to listen to Howard Stern and when we bought new cars this year we were sure to have Sirius as a feature.

Theres always something fantastic on. Of course I enjoy Howard Stern as well as Raw Dog comedy,Tons of he best, unedited comedy bits. Ch.32 the Dead channel, ch.43 is backspin I think? they play some pretty good ol'skewl rap for when I'm in the right mood. 72 pure jazz, 74 blues.. could go on and on.. If you pay monthly i think it's 12bux, subsequent subscriptions are less (9$ i think).
Once you have it you wont be able to drive w/out it. When I travel I always make sure the rental car has sirius. Well worth the $$.

Stern can lick my nutsack.

We get it(sirius music) along with our sattelite dish channels. Thing that bugs me about it is they never give the date on a particular version being played unless it's a whole set. Another thing I get sick of is when they only play one portion of a combo like scar/fire or Help/slip/frank.

This must be a function of how the satellite is set up to show channel, artist, song. I get the dates and location of almost every song. The only time it doesn't show up is when it is an album cut.

In addition to everything everyone else has talked about, I get all the NFL games and you can listen to the home team or visitors broadcast. Very nice...

Oh yeah, that 11-20-73 show was over the top...
