My cats show me lots of affection. I can't imagine my life without them now. They do plenty for me.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.
You can get most of those channels on internet radio.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 used the term "channels" when you should have used the term "artists". You literally can't get the channels outside of SiriusXM.There's a separate Beatles channel and Kiss channels that I have.
It's been a few years, but when I was last there broadcast radio was still thriving. It's just not quite the same as here. I am a fan of the German radio station Bayern 1. You can pretty well pick it up all over southern Germany. You'll find it on different frequencies depending where you happen to be. I listen to it here via the internet.Is it true that Germany has little to no broadcast radio?
Apparently it is AM radio that is defunct. Looking at the Wikipedia listing, the stations seem to be mostly DAB with some FM analog and TV channels mixed in.It's been a few years, but when I was last there broadcast radio was still thriving.
