XM at the Office - Day 1

8:00 – 12:00
Although, I have over 100 channels, I can’t make myself tune off of Channel 22 – Modern Adult Hits. This morning I have heard Green Day, Matchbox 20, Weezer, 3 Doors Down, Gorillaz, Jet, U2 and, the clincher, Gin Blossoms. When’s the last time you heard the Gin Blossoms on the radio? Every single song is like I personally picked it. I’ve died and gone to music heaven.

12:00 – 1:00

I tried to catch the Comedy and talk channels during my lunch hour but I couldn’t get a signal. Isn’t it all on the same satellite? I’m confused.

1:00 – 1:30
Since the whole point of this satellite radio thing is to find music I’m not very familiar with, I have switched over to Channel 44 – Classic Alternative and I’ve heard: The Clash, Echoe and the Bunnymen, INXS (Melting in the Sun), B-52’s (Strobe Light), Psychedelic Furs.

1:30
Can’t catch Channel 74 - Bluesville. Crap.

1:30 – 1:40
Channel 24 - Sunny: Tijuana Brass (Cabaret), Henry Mancini (This One’s for You), Perry Como…moving on.

1:40
I came back to Modern Adult Hits. My name is Laurie. I’m a Channel 22 addict.

1:42
Battery died. Didn’t bring AC adapter. Double crap.

1:43 - 5:00
More Christmas music on terrestrial radio.

But isn't 'terrestrial' radio fun when you change up the words and make a mockery of it? ;)

Jen - Floggin' A!

I think I would be on the classic rock station that played the best of the 70's and perhaps early 80's. For some reason, my taste in music failed to develop much after 1984.

Ed - If I didn't try to keep up with the new music, I wouldn't know about Vertical Horizon or Gin Blossoms or Jet or...
