I have been a subscriber to XM radio almost since it first came out.
The first time I was presented with XM radio was at the Mid-America Truck show in the late 1990's.
XM radio's first targeted audience in this area was truck drivers. Since most truck drivers cover a vast area in their travels, XM was a great idea for them. Imagine driving up to 500 or 600 miles a day and trying to find a radio station as the one you are listening to fades out. Then imagine doing this with EVERY radio station that fades out
during a 500 mile trip.
I hauled freight and drove over the road for 11 1/2 years. Of course, I subscribed to XM radio! I enjoyed knowing that I would be able to listen to my favorite radio shows no matter where in the United States or Canada that I was driving.
I did not subscribe because it was commercial free, though. So I can understand that if that is the reason you subscribed, that you may be disappointed in it.
For me, XM radio was a great solution to the problem of not knowing where the radio stations were located on the radio dial in various towns. I have enjoyed it for several years and plan on using their services for a long time into the future.
