Haven't checked it out. Is this in any way similar to the kinds of radio stations you get via iTunes? That stuff is not bad but it sounds 'canned' to me. I prefer the sound of live, off-the-floor, kind of broadcasts - with real people introducing the next tune, as opposed to the aural wallpaper approach as pioneered by Muzak.<br><br>Don't get me wrong - there's tons of great stuff and savvy net stations catering to niche tastes, but after only even a short period of listening, it all sounds pre-recorded and somewhat arid to me. That's only the stuff I've heard so far, mind you - maybe a half-dozen stations that I've listened to a few times over - Magnatunes, Groove Salad, Beat Blender, etc.<br><br>max

UofO is in Eugene. Oregon State is in Corvallis. Never confuse a Beaver with a Duck. <br><br><br><br>When did the National Guard turn into the foreign legion?

There's real people (DJ's) behind the music on satellite- they just don't come on as often and there's no commercials to speak of on most of the channels...I know what you mean about the internet stations- I think I hear at least 10-20 'Live 365' spots per hour... <br><br>Go to xmradio.com and sign up for the free 3-day online trial. You don't get ALL of the stations- but I believe all of the ones with music are on there. Only thing you'll be missing are the news and talk channels. But obviously you'd get them if you bought a satellite unit & signed up.<br><br>There's channels for almost ALL tastes- from the 'decades' - (40's-90's) to Jazz to Country to Dance- you name it. I tend to stay in the 'rock' group, and I'm honestly surprised how much new music I'm exposed to every day. 'Deep Tracks', which plays a lot of the stuff on artists' albums you never hear on the radio, is slowly becoming my favorite...<br><br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>
