Post Great News and Talk Lineup!

I've been with Sirius for A couple of weeks and I love the News and Talk lineup. NPR, BBC News, CBC and WRN are all great plus Bloomberg is on 24/7. I still love XM but I wanted the best of both.

I haven't had A chance to listen much to the sports yet but I'm looking forward to it.

Great to have this radio service!

NPR is a big reason why I originally got Sirius. That and Sirius Left are my two favs outside of H100 and 101.

Compared to AM/FM's lineup...well, there is no comparison. Most of the critique around here is about tweaking the lineup to one's own personal tastes. That it's a great lineup, better than you can get over the free airwaves, is a given!

The NPR channels and Sirius Left have turned out to be my favorites, as well.

I had no idea how much really good NPR material was on the network but not played locally.

Exactly. Local stations usually just play a few of the NPR shows. Or, in the case of Houston, like 3 and the rest is classical music.

I usually listen to Hannity and Levin but I must admit NPR has some pretty good programing. In the short time I've had Sirius I've become A regular listener to Diane Rehms and Talk of the Nation.

They took Diane Rehms off the local NPR station here where I live A few years ago. Thank God for Sirius!

My only complaint is I wish there was a way to add "All Things Considered" to the NPR lineup.

I enjoy the talkshow they have but too many times when I tune in to listen I get sports instead of the talk show. I have been told that XM does not pre-empt the talk streams
Is that true

Can someone recommend some outstanding shows on NPR? I like Alex Bennett, Lynn Samuels, Howard Stern and can appreciate good talk radio whether left, right or no wing. As for NPR, I used to listen to Car Talk but lost interest since my car never seems to break down. For some reason I haven't checked all the NPR choices out yet and was wondering if anyone had any favorites they could recommend to give me a head start. Thanks.

Some of my favorites are: On the Media, Radio Times, Humankind, Justice Talk, Talk of the Nation and there is a show called Supreme Court Oral Arguments, which I am not sure...it could actually be on C-Span...( maybe someone could clarify this)this show replays historic oral arguments made before the supreme court

Yes it's true. I also have an XM subscription. They have A block of channels set up for baseball, hockey and collage sports. That would be the one thing I don't like about Sirius but I guess with only so much bandwidth space to work with they are doing the best they can.

I like both and I won't complain

Thank you for the feedback I decided to return my Sirius radio and give XM a try. I just picked up a pionner inno at wal-mart. I enjoyed the talk radio on sirius but one of the reasons I got Sirius was the local station would have sports instead of talk and I did not realize sirius was the same way
