I have to admit I am quite addicted to my satellite radio. A year ago it would be shocking to think that I would actually pay 12.00 a month to listen to radio but now I can’t live without it. I particularly like channel 10- “The Bridge” which plays artists like James Taylor, Paul Simon, Janis Ian, Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Reason I listen to the satellite radio over conventional radio is quite frankly I HATE commercials- so I am happy to pay to hear my kind of music my way and not listen to commercials. I don’t know why but radio commercials are just particularly obnoxious to me.
Anyway- reason I am mentioning on this site is that has become a great homeschool resource for us- My daughter and I really enjoy listening to old time radio- like Jack Benny and “The Shadow” . there is an entire channel just for old time radio classic. We also love the Discovery channel. “Kidstuff” is a god send on long car ride for my toddler- endless hours of The Wiggles, Barney and Raffi.
In rare moments my daughter can convince me to put on on Radio Disney, but this channel is just plain evil- the songs will bounce around in your head for weeks after- and believe me a 40 year old singing latest Jesse Mccartney song in the produce aisle is not a pretty site.
There are no commercials on any of the music stations ever- but on the Talk Stations they have the odd one.
