Why I listen to satellite radio

Funny thing - when I worked at WMRC in Milford, MA there were a group of people who thought the satellite programming hours were local and the local people were actually on the bird!

It's like this -- I prefer terrestrial stations. When I find one that 
has a strong local programming presence (music or talk) I listen.  
Intently. When I find one that is pretty much automated, there's a 
chance that I will head up to the bird to see what's there.  80% of my 
listening is in the car in Vermont so there tends to be lots of hopping 
around the dial out of necessity.  Gotta go.  That Quarter Pounder is 
calling. <g>
