Re: Re: Re: Re: XM or Sirius I got one Fo Xmas !!!
Sheesh. I just don't know. I signed up for the 3 day freebies from both XM and Sirius - and neither one has exactly bowled me over in their choices on the classic rock channels. Obviously both are far superior to regular radio, but when I flip on "Deep Tracks" or "The Vault" and hear Genesis and Supertramp, I am pretty darn disappointed. The blues channels on both seem better, though - I've heard Elmore James and Sonny Boy and Muddy and even Mayall/Clapton. I was excited to see that XM has a channel called the Village (I cut my own musical teeth in the Village listening to the folkies) but disappointed in just about every track I've heard so far (well, there was that Carolyn Hester song, I have never heard her on a radio - but they sure picked a lousy one). Yikes. I have to make up my mind so I can do this tomorrow guys!!! What to do, what to do.

Well I don't much about either really,and when Ive talked with people they say about the same as Ive seen posted here 50/50 xm or sirus,the only reason I picked xm is I have it on my computer and have been able to down load anything I want includin 601, so when my wife asked me last week what I perfered I said xm I don't know if its better or not its really a filp of the coin !!But when I went home last night she come up with a off the wall thing why she needs my truck and why I hafta take hers,so shes gonna have it installed before I get home friday!! I think!! what if she really needed my truck and I ain't gettin nuttin!! That would be a HOOT!!
This morning I flipped on the XM folk music channel - wow, Tom Paxton, Taj Mahal, Odetta, Joan Baez, Loreena McKennitt and the Incredible String Band. Sold! Oh wait, it's for J.J. and he doesn't like folk music all that much.
