I appreciate you sending my concerns to the programming team, but honestly, they have until the end of my trial to fix it. I already RARELY use my SAT radio, I even use HD radio more - and that's free. Most of the time I use my iPod in my car, that way when I get bored I just go and delete my playlists and load new ones. Granted, it helps having 4 TB of music and video stored at home.

Well, at least we know that they're on forums looking to help people.

[OFF TOPIC ALERT]

NOW HEAR THIS Sirius XM people....


You need a station that plays Hard Rock / Metal that is a compromise between Octane and Liquid Metal.


Liquid metal is cookie monster RAHHH RAHHH!!!! GGRRRRRR crap all the time... and Octane is the new pop-hard rock which is terrible... seriously, it's garbage.


But a station that plays actual decent hard rock/metal would be kickass. Think, Slayer, Deftones, Pantera, Tool, etc... Call it the Lithium of heavy metal.

make that isht happen.

I like a wide range of music, everything from classic rock to hip hop, from motown to classical. I can't find stations on Sirius that really have a lot of music I want to listen to. Even my local radio stations have better selection, I just can't stand the 15 minutes of commercials that sometimes interrupt the programming on the "more music all the time" stations. So, I am left with my iPod. Besides, I love the looks I get when my iPod goes from Led Zepplin to Swizz Beats to Marvin Gaye to Rolling Stones - priceless

My presets are:

80's on 8
90's on 9
Alt Nation
Lithium
Octane
BPM

I can find something good on at least one of those stations.

Local radio is a joke... mindless DJ's yakking on and on about stupid crap...

I can't just plug in an ipod, I'm incapable of listening to an entire song if I have the ability to change the song.

I listen to 80's, 90's, the Joint, BPM, Highway, Watercolors, 20 on 20, Hits1, Pulse, Hip-Hop Nation, and Laugh USA. Those are presets. I listen to a few more. I usually run a channel for a good week or two. It's the same setup on my phone so I can swap vehicles.
Laugh USA can be good if on a long trip, a good laugh is good for keeping awake. I can't tell the last time I listened to FM.
Of those above BPM fits my style though, keeps me alert and focused on driving.

  • The CD slot has an audiobook loaded at all times
  • At :25 and :55 I flip to AM for the WCBS business news
  • At :26 and :56 I flip to WINS for their business news
  • At :27 and :57 I listen to traffic and weather on my local AM station
  • At :28 and :58 it's back to Sirius

Oh, and if I get bored with those choices, there's always my Griffin Technology BlueTrip AUX hooked up to my phone with Pandora.

Anal enough for you?

Ha! Cookie Monster, for the win. I never thought of that comparison before, but it's spot on. I laughed out loud.
