Good Morgan Gentle Readers,
I'm delighted with the additional choices and options and, clearly, coast-to-coast commercial free broadcasting is a peachy selling point as is the ability to pick channels by genre (you don't get to pick the tunes). But unlike much of internet streaming radio, satellite has those lame-oh DJ's that remind me of 1960's AM rock radio. Okay they don't scream as much as the Real Don Steele but they're not nearly as cool as Humble Harve or Robert W Morgan either.
To me that's two big downsides, particularly considering that satellite radio requires an upfront investment that's not insignificant and an ongoing monthly cash commitment. I love uninterrupted digital music, but it makes more sense to me in the context of my Bose equipped computer and Mrs TWC's pink I-pod, both of which are very receptive to the Beavis inside of me when he's screaming change it, change it.
We report, you decipher.
