So I found out why Preston and Steve have gone to WMMR. Y100 did a format change to rap.

Damn... I was just about to post about that and my f*cking PC froze up.

Apparently RadioOne felt we needed ANOTHER "Urban" format in the Philadelphia listening area. I'm completely destroyed right now as I listened to Y100 99% of the time I had the radio on (only switches from it were when Dave Matthews was played).

Well, once Stern leaves, I have nothing holding me back from Satellite now. Now I just have to choose between O&A and Stern for the mornings.

Remember that Preston & Steve (and company) will be migrating to WMMR in August / September...

I have Sirius, it's pretty good. Better than the damn radio and their six hour commercial breaks.

Interesting comparison:

XM is $9.99/mo plus $2/mo if you want O&A and other stations

Sirius is $11.99/mo flat rate

So for me, the price is the same. Not sure who has the better equipement, but I know that Costco has (or used to have) a car/home pack for XM.

Yes, but no. XM is flat rate only. Sirius has deals - I got the lifetime deal, so I don't have any more bills. There are yearly or multi-year deals as well, which makes Sirius cheaper in the long run.

Sirius has better quality according to many reviews online. Sirius has 3 satellites to XMs two (both have a spare in case of problems), so Sirius should have better quality and coverage.

Look at the programming if you're going to pay month-to-month, and look at the receivers to determine what you want. I just bought a Clarion, and I'm very pleased so far with the head unit, sound quality, and programming.

And not only is Sirius getting Stern in '06, they are also getting Nascar in '07. That is, if you like listening to cars go around in a circle on the radio.

I would care, except I haven't listened to Y100 since 1998.
