What station do you listen to on XM?

I am always looking for something that doesn't get old. Is it me or do the stations on XM seem to reuse songs and playlists more often than not?

I like Ethel the most, then Flight 26, 20 on 20, the 80's and 90's.

But it all seems to get old.

I tend to go to broadcast now to stay fresh.

Our 6 presets are Lucy (54), 20, Top Tracks (46), Ethel (47), 90s (9), and Flight 26. If those 6 miss, which is often, she'll scan through 20-30 skipping Cinemagic (even though I and the girls like it) and On Broadway.

I'll hit 80s, 70s, Fungus, Fred, and The Boneyard occasionally.

I like XM, but I fully agree that the playlists and lack of rotation become annoying.

I listen to Squizz 48 about 60%, Boneyard 20%, Virus 202 20%. I will switch to Lucy 54 every now and then. When football season starts I'll probably switch my morning drive over to ESPN 140 for the Mike and Mike show.

I'll be no help to you. I listen to ESPN (140) and Old Time Radio (164?)

In order: Fred, Lucy, Ethel, The Virus, U-Pop, Squizz, Boneyard. When my daughter is in the car I let her dial flip. It's either 20 on 20, Flight 26 or Hitlist.

In the morning it is 175 (MLB Homeplate). On the way home, usually 80s, 90s, or Fred.

I'm in agreement that the music seems to have changed for the worse lately. Perhaps leading into the merger??

I listen to the comedy channels. I've been listening ever since the death of Richard Jeni in an effort to hear his "NFL Referees" bit (still have yet to hear it). If anyone knows where I can find this online, please let me know!

this is awful to say but I hope so... cause besides The Move where the music is the most varied, every thing else seems rather stale... if the merger does happen I can't wait to listen to BBC Radio One on a daily basis.

Other Lock-ins:

Flight 26. I swear ever since the last episode of Six Feet Under. Pop songs sound so good to me.

XM202 all the time. Occasionally I'll turn on some of the sports talk stations or political talk stations.
