    i got Sirius when he came over and still listen; usually there's at least something decent on 101, I've been listening since the early 90s, so it's a hard habit to break, though I don't feel like I've missed out if I miss a show.

    If he ends it, I'd stick around for a little bit. Some of the music stations are decent. I've found some other decent shows. But I'd probably go the podcasting route.

    You?

    I subscribed to XM in 2004 long before Howie announced he was going to Sirius.

    No way that FM radio is listenable anymore. Too many fucking commercials.

    Yup I'd be done. The cost wouldn't be worth it. Not sure cost is worth it now when he's only working 3 days a week (assuming he's not on vacation)

    Really? The ones here have really stepped up their game.
    Yes, some, but not bad.
    They have also far improved the music selections.

    I always have my phone with me though. There is nothing exclusive to satellite.
    Everything on there is from elsewhere.
    The receiver in my Jeep doesn't even have a CD player anymore.
    Under the faceplate I have a thumbdrive full of music and an a loaded SD card.

    So many choices nowadays.

    Not being critical, I'm just curious.

    I had 3 radios that I canceled years ago and told them it was because of Stern. I got the service because of him and now his show sucks, he's hardly ever there and when he was it sounds like he doesn't want to be. The dude just said wow, I don't have any counter offer for that and shut down the service. Felt good.

    I like the Grateful Dead channel and the Blues channel. I'll keep it. I wouldn't want to give Gunky the satisfaction of saying when he left the company fell apart.

    I have kept it this long (for other content) due to the fact I used to have to drive a lot because of my commute. My commute has gone from min 30 minutes one-way to three minutes one-way. So when my contract expires early next year I am done

    I need talk radio for work, Jay thomas, opie & jim are the only things I listen on sxm. Only listen on my phone, and through the car's bluetooth. The fact that some of my money is going towards that old queen annoys the fuck out of me.

    It's still the only place you're getting commercial free music without a data connection in the middle of nowhere, and they do have other talk shows to listen to.

    How can you say that with a straight face?

    SXM hardware is pure crap and nothing has changed about that.

    :dontknow: Not all SXM hardware is crap. I have two Audiovox radios, an Audiovox Boombox, multiple car&home docks/power adapters/antennas and have had 0.0 issues with my SXM hardware.

    Me too. I enjoy Lithium and Prime Country (when they don't hijack the channel for Christmas music:banghead:).
