When I bought my new car I had a trial version of XM Satellite radio. I enjoyed it most when traveling and I wasn’t familiar with local stations; I could always get my favorite XM stations. When the trial period expired I didn’t bother purchasing it because my Tuscan also had Bluetooth where I could play Pandora radio or my iPod wirelessly from my iPhone. Around Christmas I got what had to have been the 20th phone call from XM trying to get me to purchase their service but for $20 bucks a month I thought “Nahhh, I’ll just save that money.” The saleswoman asked if cost was a factor and I told her “Yes, it’s Christmas and I’d rather spend that money towards gifts.” So low and behold I got the service for a mere $4 a month! I’ve been enjoying it ever since 🙂
One of my favorite stations is AltNation XM 36. It plays the latest alternative rock as well as some old favorite songs from bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and Phoenix. They even played AFI the other day! I love all of the music, however the DJ’s are morons. I can’t stand Madison who is on everyday. I usually just flip to another station for a few minutes then flip back to the music.
Here’s a list of my top 5 favorite songs right now:
Goin’ ’round this roundabout
Take me to your best friend’s house
I loved you then and I love you now
No, you didn’t have to stoop so low Have your friends collect your records And then change your number Guess that I don’t need that though Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
