Re: Free XM Again

Got a call from XM/Sirus yesterday. They asked me how I liked the service and since my trial is about to expire (after 14 month) and offered me some promotional rate. $4.99 per month for 6 month. I declined, because I was mainly interested in traffic which was an addon.

Odd thing for me is that even free I don't think I'd listen to it much. Sure, a large number of stations, but nothing really struck me as special. Perhaps I have odd tastes or something -and to hear ads on the stations to boot really makes me not want to pay for it. I thought they were supposed to be ad-free (?)

Oh well, glad it is there for those who actually enjoy it. Rather wish I could have chosen an HD Radio - I wonder what they sound like and if stations are any better/different...

It's funny this has come to the top again because I've been listening to XM exclusively since the beginning of November, mostly to avoid having to hear commercials (particularly political ones!).

You may remember that I had slammed the quality of XM after getting it for the first time in my LEAF. Well, now we have an XM radio in the Volt too, I now understand that it's not XM that's at fault...it's the crummy receiver in the LEAF.

That said, I am still willing to settle for poor quality audio (which I've made tolerable by adjusting the equalization a lot) over radio filled with commercial breaks and/or content I'm not interested in listening to.

I find myself going through a bit of a nostalgia kick at the moment, so I'm listening (in order of interest) to 70s on 7; 80s on 8; 60s on 6; and 90s on 9. I've also saved the two French Canadian stations, which I typically listen to when I'm going through one of my "I'm really going to become fluent in French" fantasies.
