I'm not sure if I understand you. If you are saying that Sat radio plays the same music over and over, I haven't found that to be true. Quite the opposite, actually. I have a hard time trying to find a music radio station (AM or FM) that plays music I like without assuming that I want to hear the same (old) songs over and over.
With Sat radio I've found a station that plays stuff I like without repeating songs all the time. (I can find that
too, on Sat if I wanted to, because I guess some people like "familiarity.") I also hear stuff on my Sat radio I haven't heard before, but would probably like, just like in the "old days" of FM radio.
I haven't given up on radio yet, I just don't use it for music when I have a choice. I'm also giving HD Radio a try to see how it does. FYI, I've got a CD player in the car, but don't use it all that much. (I use it a lot less now that I have Sat radio.)
