Kirk,

I couldn't agree more! I rented a car from Enterprise (yuk, yuk) when I went back home for my Dad's funeral a couple of months ago, and the trip back was all to OTR of science fiction programs... X-Minus One, Science Fiction Theatre, Inner Sanctum, and Escape!

If I were to shuck out $25 a month for one of these things, It would be pretty much for that. Certainly, the thing that keeps me away from it is the fact that I know Howard Stern is on it too...

I have XM in my new Elantra and I love it! My commute to work used to be filled with poor FM reception and areas with NO reception. Now I drive to work with no interuptions in the sound. I also like the talk and news radio in the morning when I am driving home from work (I work graveyard). I also like the uncensored aspect to some of the stations like 'The Virus" with shows such as 'Opey and Anthony'. Great stuff

I forgot to mention that I am still in my free 3 month trial with XM. I have been offered another 3 months for only $4.99 a month. After that the normal cost is $12.95 a month. I am going to take the additional 3 month offer and most likely will continue after that. If I lived in area where i could recieve good FM reception I would probably not be as impressed.
