What's the best radio service?

We currently have XM but only because the unit was a birthday gift. Is there something better?

I read some review a while back where the chap said that allof the stations he tested rolled through 2 or 4 hour loops - is that correct ???

I hate commercial radio because I detest talk & I detest hearing the same track played 60 times a week

I ain't gonna pay money to hear the same track 60 times per week

I haven't noticed that, but my attention span is somewhat short of 2 hours. More like a Cocker Spaniel's.
