Is XM or Sirius the Answer?

Thursday morning I wake up, shower, get dressed and then climb into my car for the trek from the e-wife's house to to her job. (We still are cool....I think.) I turn the dial to my usual radio show and damnit it's format was changed! WHFS is now noventa nueve punto uno el Zol. The longtime alternative rock station with the Sports Junkies in the morning is now an all latino station. Now, in the big picture, this is great for Baltimore/DC region radio because the only other latino station was 92.1 which didnt get much of a signal except for in pockets of the region. The competition is needed. However, now the Junkies are back on their old station, but in a different time slot and on a DC only station. Damn. Now I have to go back to listening to typical "morning zoo" shows with a staff that usually consists of the main person (anchor, I guess), his/her counterpart, and a washed up comedian. Oh joy. Not to say that the Junkies weren't too different, but the sports emphasis gave it a testosterone kick I like. All my DC and B-more peeps out there; any suggestions? Has this happened to you with a radio station as well? This last time this happened to me was when Olivia Fox was fired from WKYS for reasons unknown. **Sigh** And what the hell is a "zol"?

It sounds like you're boohooing. That's why I ask.

Santa brought me Sirius for Christmas and I LOVE it. I love it for two reasons, the first is that if I don't want to listen to people talk (And I usually don't.) I don't have to. The second is because I am a Howard Stern fan and anti-censorship...so I am supporting both. While Howard isn't on Sirius, he will be soon.

Got to Sirius.com to see what's playing. I vote for Sirius.

Zol... take off on Sol... which means sun... I shouldn't have to tell you this.

I hate morning shows. They all suck. And BK has no hate on Latin music even if he needs a little help dancing to it from time to time. I welcome the change. I used to love HFS...but hadn't listened to it in forever. Anything to give LaMega competition.
