I admit to having pre-sets on my satellite radio, but it's not instead 
of terrestrial-- it's in addition to.  On my car radio, I mainly listen 
to  the following terrestrial stations-- both WEEI and the Sports Hub; 
classic rock WZLX; both top-40s (Kiss 108 and the new Amp 103.3) so that 
I can keep up with the hits many of my students like (they all claim 
they love alternative music, but they mainly quote from pop artists); 
WBZ Radio (of course) and both WBUR and WGBH.   As for my satellite, 
since there is no longer any progressive talk on the broadcast band 
here, I listen to the audio from MSNBC and I listen to XM 127 Left (btw, 
I have always found it odd that the corresponding channel for the 
righties is not called XM Right, but rather, XM Patriot... as if the 
rest of us are not patriotic?????).  I also listen to POTUS 124 (the 
channel that gives reports on presidential politics, speeches the 
candidates gave, events they went to, etc.  Totally bi-partisan, with 
good commentators from both sides).  And when I'm in the mood for oldies 
from various decades, I punch back and forth over the 50s channel, the 
60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and Classic Rewind (which plays a lot of tracks you 
can't hear on classic rockers with tight playlists).
