I resisted for years, but bit the bullet with this last truck purchase,
and found that when Traveling back and forth 500 miles to AR, and being
able to stay on the station du jour the entire way without having to
continually scan for something worth listening to every 100 miles, was
worth the coffee money/month.
Particularly like the coverage, both in content (still love to listen to
Car Talk) and in location.
AAMOF, Too bad cable TV isn't more like XM radio...
I got bored with the Sirius/XM stations after a few months. We had it as
part of Dish's satellite package, and I had it on all the time like a
radio. I'm apparently not in their demographic aim.
My solution is to build a music library (from CDs, I refuse "soft
ownership" like MP3 downloads) and put it on my phone. The van supports
audio over bluetooth (whatever that profile is called ?A2D2?) which means
any time I'm in the van the music plays. I get stuff I like, and don't
have to keep listening to a station that's more about talking than music.

You know, all this talk about comforting one's ear, with music, no matter w
hat the occasion.... maybe we should sing to ourselves, sing what we like,
at the moment, and not have to worry about tuning in to the best station or
whether the next radio song will be suitable.
On a related note: Sometimes, after creating/building a project, someone w
ill comment that the idea, workmanship, project is unique... "How do you do
that?" I tell them there's a secret, to that kind of woodworking, and, o
f course, they want to know the secret. So, (looking both left & right, to
make sure no one else is listening) I whisper in their ear, the secret:
So, to solve your working or traveling musical needs, simply "sing" to your
Ditto. I only buy "soft" audio books, which I'm not likely to listen
to more than once.
My vehicles are supposed to have this but it doesn't work. Bluetooth
devices, whether operational or not, also screw up voice navigation. I
have to connect via USB and that's a PITA. On long trips I will put
the iPod in the car but for every day it's not worth it.
I don't trust "trust us, we'll make your purchased license always
available". If I've got the professionally made CD, then rebuilding a
lost digital collection (as unlikely as that is) is possible even if the
company I purchased the CD from is gone.
Plus, if I ever decide I don't like a CD (want a copy of Brian Wilson's
Smile?), I can sell the CD later.
