May I tell you all how much I am thoroughly enjoying my Sirius Satellite Radio? I had no interest in getting it. I am an NPR girl for most of the day. However, I am also a Howard Stern fan, and can't bear to imagine not hearing him in the mornings once he leaves regular radio at the end of the year. It wasn't until we moved to this town and quickly discovered how abysmal the radio stations are here (the only decent one is a HIGH SCHOOL station, for Christ Sakes!)that prompted us to buy it 6 months early.
WELL, there is a station called 1st Wave that takes me back to my extremely happy, carefree and fun college days (as opposed to the sucky 18 years prior to college and the humdrum of Real Life now. There is NOTHING better than sitting out on my deck on a Friday evening listening to Depeche Mode, The The, Wall of Voodoo and New Order. Even better--a radio show on Friday Nights hosted by Fred Schneider of the B-52's. It's like the perfect mix tape from an old boyfriend.
Equally exciting is the announcement that Martha Stewart will soon roll out her station. I will be able to let my inner domestic diva out with a dose of Radio Martha.
I may be too busy to listen to Howard when he finally comes over...
