XM on TV

Yep! DirecTV has made the switch on their music portion from Music Choice to XM stations. Now, I liked the Music Choice stations just fine myself, but I have to admit I was pretty excited about the XM offerings.

It's been about 5 days, and so far, so good. I haven't had a chance to listen to it much, but I like what I've heard so far! I'm rather fond of the 60s, 70s, and 80s -- along with a smattering of the 90s AND the 40s! Why I bypass the 50s, I don't know... just haven't listened to them much.

Haven't delved into too many of the specialty stations, but I can tell I'm going to like what I see so far. I'm more a fan of classic country (and I never imagined myself ever saying that when I was 16), and they have a station or two of that, plus a couple of alt-country stations. I like bluegrass too (never imagined myself saying that one either), and they have a couple of those. Not to mention the other stuff.

Oh yeah. This is gonna be good!

I'm not sure if you've changed your blog's color scheme to green, or if it's just my envy.

MUSIC CHOICE is wonderful in itself, but I too would trade it in a second for XM. My kingdom to have "60s on 6" at the touch of a remote (you know I'm a jingle geek....). The "50s on 5" channel is also pretty good - our little diner here in town plays that one.

And to have "The Bob Edwards Show" ..... ooooooh, I'm calling Comcast right now.
