Sirius Radio - What station do you stay on most of the time?

I've only had it on for two days and I really do like the quality of the sound. Not being familiar with all of the stations, I find that I really do flip around a lot. My wife says that I have Attention Deficit Disorder, I think I just like a variety!

So, What are your favorite stations? I like a lot of the current music like Adele, but keep going back to the 60's and groups like the Who, James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel..

Re: Sirius Radio - What station do you stay on most of the time?

I use it at work and spend a lot of time on The Loft. Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight is usually a pleasure, Wednesdays and Thursdays. He's does old school Free Form radio. Usually puts together a good set of a wide variety of music from really old to new.

Thanks - Now I have a target...

K1600 riders

Is there a way to get from one station to another without scrolling through all in between?

Just set it on 66 watercolors, then as you approach the meeting place with your buds, switch to 59 the highway.

Re: Sirius Radio - What station do you stay on most of the time?

I have Satellite radio in my truck and have been giving some thought to adding it to the bike.

I like:

The Blend
The Bridge
70's
80's
Classic Vinal
Classic Rewind


The Blend by far gets the most play!
