So, I got Mark his birthday present a little early... Sirius satellite radio. It was hard to decide whether to get him Sirius or XM. XM has the better equipment but Sirius has the better programming.
Sirius also features Radio Margaritaville, which is a plus for me
... although I'm a bit disappointed because before they had Radio Margaritaville they had Vacation Radio, which was different. Vacation Radio played a mix of Reggae, Tropical, Calypso, Hawaiian, Beach and more. Radio Margaritaville plays country, rock, pop and Buffett.
I like Radio Margaritaville, but seriously, how many Buffett songs in a row can one person listen to? (Parrotheads, don't answer that.
) Plus, I'm not much of a fan of the pop and country stuff they play. I think I would have enjoyed Vacation radio a lot more. I sent them an e-mail about it.
Other than that, it's a lot of fun having all these stations with no commercials. The 80s stations (my other favorite genre besides trop-rock) are awesome
