XM Satellite Radio News

MY CURRENT FAVORITE CHANNEL:
XM54 – Lucy (‘90s Alternative)
U2, The Cure, Foo Fighters, Bush, Nirvana, Green Day, Dave Matthews Band, The White Stripes, The Replacements, Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Coldplay, Beck

MY CURRENT SECOND FAVORITE CHANNEL:
XM44 – Fred (Classic Alternative from the ‘70s to the early ‘90s)
Crowded House, Ramones, Violent Femmes, Bauhaus, The Smiths, Jesus & Mary Chain, Joy Division, X, Social Distortion, Talking Heads, Blondie
They play lots of classic punk but not so much that it wears me down like XM53 (Punk/Hardcore/Ska) does.

MY FUTURE CHANNEL ADDICTION:
XM59 – 24 hours of Led Zeppelin

There is a regular radio station here that has already switched to the holiday format. Christmas music from November 1 until Christmas Day. Gah.

Please tell me that you don't actually listen to the Christmas stations right? You were just listing them so that we'd know where not to go (until about 2 days before Christmas. :)

Is Satellite Radio expensive? I could use some good music.

Jen - I can't believe it's already November.

Coach - You know, sometimes I'm just in the mood. To tell you the truth, I tried to tune into the Christmas channels a few months ago. :)

40 Forever - Heck no! It's cheap...about $12 a month and worth every penney.

Like Jen, we have a station that has already switched formats. I love Christmas music, but I need snow on the ground before I can get REALLY in the mood.

Not that I am jinxing myself or anything.

We have XM on the DirecTV, but we haven't used it that much - may have to look it up.

Grimm - Definitely check it out! You guys are such a musical family. Julia will love it, too.
