So I got a great deal on an XM Radio MyFi. It’s basically an XM radio Walkman. Granted here on Long Island, it’s not that usefull, but in the city it’s great. Major metropolitan areas have land-based repeaters, kind of like cellphones do, to provide coverage where satellite reception is low or impossible. The main reason I wanted these units though is because they can time shift, and more importantly, be programmed to record at specific times.
Often when I listen to Opie and Anthony, I wind up hearing the same bits during their replay since I catch the same parts of the show, so now I’ll be able to record the show, and during all my driving or hanging out @ home, I’ll be able to listen to the entire show, stopping it when I get out of the car and resuming it when I get back in.
Unfortunately, I will be cancelling my XM subscription. At least for 30 days while O&A are suspended. I bought XM radio specifically to listen to O&A because I want to listen to over the edge radio. They were suspended for just what I wanted the service for, so I expect that XM will give me a refund for the 30 days. If not I think I’ll cancel my subscription for the month that O&A is off the radio. The music channels are good, but not worth paying for and I’m not really a Ron & Fez fan.
