Here's the blurb for his Saturday night show:Saturday night
And, actually, you already pay for radio. You just pay for it with time, instead of money. You listen to advertisements, instead of the songs you want to hear. Satellite radio was originally pitched to truckers, because so often we can't find anything to listen to, but it's standard on many new cars.
Currently, in addition to their regular music programming (69 channels on Sirius), including everything from 50's to the latest hip hop, reggae to classical, CBC1 to country outlaw, they have a whole channel right now for continuous AC/DC (in honor of their first new album in 9 years), a continuous Grateful Dead channel, an all-Beck channel for a few days, etc.
And I can listen to NPR, ABC news, Fox news, CNN, CNN Headline News, Bloomberg, CNBC, CBC (where I hear "As It Happens"), and about 60 other non-music channels.
