So I bought a Myfi about 3 weeks ago, and I primarily bought it to listen to Opie & Anthony + Ron & Fez (can't stand Horid Stern and his l35bian + f/\rt antics...BoooOOring)

I thought to myself that the music was a great bonus, becuase I'll be able to tune to specific stations which showcase what I love such as say:

Interpol; Radiohead; Sneaker P1mps; Jeff Buckley; Massive Attack and so on and so forth for that genre.

I also love the older metal stuff like Metallica; Megadeth; Overkill etc..

Love Duke Ellington; Basse; Coltrane; Miles; Parker...

Enjoy the hell out of Wagner; Liszt; Debussy; Ravel; Stravinsky; Rachmaninov

I also really like the more popular rock stuff which was born from the drudges of Seattle, which goes by the name grunge rock..what else...

Classic Rock

Acid Jazz

Experimental

Choral

I guess my point is that, one would THINK that whith a format such as Satellite radio, you would easily see channels laid out in such a neat and tidy fashion, right ? Well, I can't say that I listen or play around with it all the time but, when I do, I've found XM's programming to be rather sloppy and unintelligent.

I might not have given it enough time, so for now I'll just say that I'm not fully impressed with the PD's choices, and think that I could do a MUCH better job than he/she/them.

I actually have to go but, I'd like to discuss this with anyone who has XM. Please:

Discuss.

(And I will give specific examples later)

I've had XM for about a year and a half; currently I have an XM2Go.

For me, the programming has been all right overall. But the electronica stations play amazing music. They just barely got The System (82) back on the air after playing hideous Christmas music. I'm sure you would like the stuff they play. I've heard Massive Attack and the Sneaker Pim ps on it many times.

I've had XM in my home now for about 3 mos and I love it. I especially like channels 70 and 110. "The Swing Seat" with Wynton on Saturday mornings is particularly enjoyable. The only real problem is the variation in fidelity between the channels.

Frank, you're one of the few people on this board whose post count consists entirely of spam.

It would have been much better if you had simply posted all of those in one post or just linked a channel guide, but even then it would still be off-topic as a channel listing was never put into question.
