Default Now playing SMS?

I've been using the online channel info programs like ItsOnSirius for a few months and now my song seek functionality on my tuner is no fun. I like the ability to get notified if any of my favorite 'artists' are playing, not just one song. So, has anyone considered leveraging the ItsOnSirius data (or similar song data) to send short SMS messages to our cellphones? It would great if we could specify times to have the service active, so I don't get any messages during the middle of the night.

Is this a good idea or just something I think would be cool?

To me it seems like on an artist basis you're going to be getting a lot of messages on your phone. I think by the time your phone goes off, you get it out, open it up, read the message, chenge the channel, the song will be 1/2 over. And the ods that it's a song you really want to listen to are what, like 50% or os? I guess that depends on the artest and how much you really love them. I would say if you want to go to that length to hear an artist, to the unthinkable and buy the album.
