They call that "throwing you a bone". Cats think it is hilarious to use that metaphor.

It is amazing cats can get anything done given that they sleep on average 16 hours per day.
My cats show me lots of affection. I can't imagine my life without them now. They do plenty for me.

Why pay for radio? No stupid commercials.....they drive me nuts. I do have sat radio free on both c-band and ku-band dishes but I like Sirius as I can run it all on 12 volt both home and car and because of various channels I can’t get on the bigger dishes.

As others have said, I like SiriusXM mainly because of the content, ...and I can't stand listening to commercials! With normal radio, it is impossible to find stations like: The Tom Petty Channel, The Beatles Channel, The Grateful Dead Channel, The Phish Channel, Deep Tracks, Watercolors, Real Jazz, Bluegrass Junction, Symphony Hall, etc.

Sirius is like everything else, ...some people will think it is worth it, while others will think you're crazy for spending money on "radio that you could get for free".

You can get most of those channels on internet radio.

There's a separate Beatles channel and Kiss channels that I have.
You used the term "channels" when you should have used the term "artists". You literally can't get the channels outside of SiriusXM.

You perhaps falsely assume that all you have to do to have an artist-centric channel is to play music by that artist. The closest approximation I can think of is the syndicated radio show Breakfast with the Beatles.
