    Getting ready for vacation and filling up my mini CD case for the thousands of miles I'll be driving so I was curious what other people have in their vehicles right now that they're listening to.

    *The Byrds, Sweethheart of the Rodeo
    *Charlie Daniels, Super Hits
    *Drive-By Truckers, The Dirty South
    *Government Mule, Live in Milwaukee

    Ding, ding, ding end of thread.

    XM is like the world's greatest mix CD x 10,000. Or maybe 100,000.

    You can whip up all the mix CDs you like, but there's nothing quite like hearing an old obscure favorite out of nowhere on one of the XMs.

    I have XM radio, too, but I quickly get bored with it. At this point, I just see it as regular radio, only with many, many, many more songs I don't want to listen to. And before you ask, I have it to listen to baseball games.

    Only without the baseball thing.

    Yes, there's two complete idiots on the site. :D [/violent defender of satellite radio]

    To each his or her own, but man, it boggles my mind how I lasted 32 years and three months without satellite radio.

    I get your points, IJAG and BYH, but I have enough CDs that I want and like and spent my money on and places to play them and all that jazz (or progressive rock or Motown or pop or whatever ... :D).

    I've been on road trips with friends who had them. I wasn't overwhelmed. It didn't suck, but I didn't see the point for myself.

    BYH, I've often wondered how you've lived this long as well. But that's more for your general incompetence. :)

    A threadjack from the first reply. :(

    I found a 2-CD set of the best of Dave Edmunds.  Nothing beats driving fast and listening to that really loud. Except driving really fast and listening to "La Nozze di Figaro" with Hermann Prey and Mirella Freni.

    But that may not be for everbody.  ;)

    I beg your pardon.

    You asked a question -- I gave a response. I don't keep CDs in the car anymore. I offered no other commentary on the matter, either. If I'd said "XM radio -- CDs suck" then you could make the argument that it was a threadjack. But I didn't. I just told you what I was listening to on long trips such as the one you're about to undertake.
