On The Road Again

On February 8, 2010, in Favorite Music, by admin

So I find myself this time of the year on the road back and forth in Central Texas attending BU basketball. With a round trip drive totalling nearly 250 miles by the day’s end, I spend a lot of time in the car driving, so I find the need for entertainment.  The wife unit works on the way down and often on the way back, so I am on my own. Now most of you know my musical tastes as hard rock, with a heavy emphasis on the 80’s hair bands. But this, like any other form of music, can get old real quick.  Thank God for Satellite Radio. With the nearly 200 channel offering, I can tune into most anything I wish.  So what, pray tell, is the music/content that I listen to?  It may surprise many of you:

  • Spa Channel.  Yes, you heard it.  This station plays nothing more than the unusual, but relaxing music you would get during a massage….(OK, no jokes here)
  • Jazz Channels.  There are several on Sirrius. While I tire of them quickly, they are always enjoyable for a bit.
  • Classical Channels. Again, there are several choices here.  I stay away from the opera channel, (considered and grouped with the classical channels on Sirrius).  I would rather be shot.
  • Comedy Channels. A good change from music, and generally very funny.  They play clips of many varieties, and each clip lasts generally no longer than 3-5 minutes, perfect for my Adult Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Coffeehouse Channel. This is for singer, songwriters doing mostly accoustical sets of music. I leave this station when they start doing covers of Beatles songs, because, as most of you know, communist me hates the Beatles, in any form

If you see a trend of music that generally relaxes, congratulations, you got the word! What I do not listen to may surprise you as well:

  • Playboy Channel. Because there is only so much of chicks talking about going down on eachother that you can take before it gets very old.  I guess I never did understand the allure of the 1.900….chat lines
  • Country Stations.  And there are a shit load.  Just say “no” to country
  • Classic Rock Stations. This is largely because classic rock was/is so overplayed, its like, enough already!
  • Howard Stern. Consider him very funny, and as you know, I love irreverant humor, but he too is over-exposed and it gets old. o much of anything just gets old…and he has been out there a long time now talking about fake jugs, midgets, and fart jokes. Let it go Howard.

So that is a little summary of my Sirrius radio tastes.  We have a total of three lines for our cars and home system….I just like the product.  Oh yeah, I really appreciate that you can pick up BU men’s basketball on 161 for the away, non-televised games.  Oh yeah, I really like not being bombarded by commercials as we as Americans have way too many commercials thrown at us daily. (Check out the Sirrius radio ad at the end of this post….lol)
