Free Sirius radio is the best perk that came with my new car. I'm tuning in on the way home. Thanks PJ!

I've heard the Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Andrews Sisters shows--I must still have them on poorly labeled audio cassettes somewhere--and they are all incredible fun.

AWESOME! I love me some Sirius!
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
