Any word on the merger rumors in the coming year? I was pleased to see in last month's Rolling Stone (or was it Relix?) a write up of the new Dead Station. In the article, Bobby mentioned that the only other 24/7 Dead channel was an on line station on radioio.com . I have tuned in to that for the time being and I have really enjoyed it for the time being. Is there any input from the Dead organization into the radioio station? I look forward to eventually getting Sirius, but for the time being, I'll be utilizing the radioio life line and my XM AirAmerica Radio.
Ch 32 is all Grateful Dead; however, I listen to ch 17 Jam On almost as much. There's a good bluegrass channel too. It's a good deal, especially if you drop cable tv and get DISH network.
After having it for 2+ years now, and w/ the addition of GD channel, I can't imagine NOT having it. Sports, news, Howard Stern, etc... are worth the price of admission, but add in the great variety of commercial free music - and it's no wonder that terrestrial radio is lobbying so hard and spending millions trying to block the merger of XM and Sirius. It makes a great gift, too.
His job is to shed light, not to master...
you can't go wrong!! Grate music all the time :)
Just wondering how everyone rates the sirius radio experience? Looking at the radi for xmass. Thanks
I have to say that once I got the tape thingy to hook the Sirius direct to my stereo in the car the sound got way better. Also when you do this make sure to turn off the transmitter so the signal passes analogly to the tape heads not wirelessly thru the FM. The transmitter did not work so well in LA where there are stations upon stations and not a lot of free air.
I am very pleased with the service and the station. I had the Dish network way before I got the player for my car so I have enjoyed Sirius for a long while now. With the addition in the car I can jam on when I have to get to work. I have listened to regular radio two times since I got the car stuff.
I just miss Bill Walton!! His One More Saturday Night show was great! The way Bill tells a story you really got the picture in your head! I hope that they can work it out, I do not know what happened, but I sure miss it.
Sometimes I have noticed that they just played the same song, I am not sure that it the same version or not I have not paid any attention to that.
Rock on and have a Grateful Sirius experience!
They're playing same song[Victim Or The Crime]for the 2nd time in the last 20 minutes[something's messed up there].
My wife and I threw a halloween party last night (admittedly, I'm more than a little hungover at the moment), and while the trick-or-treaters were out, we had our Sirius tuned to the Halloween channel (scary sound effects; screams, sirens, organ music, etc.), but after that the soundtrack was the GD channel. How cool to have a marathon of halloween shows! Great idea... I assume that the programming for new years will be along the same lines...
Look forward to it!
ps - I also look forward to hearing your headset, jb123!
