I'm still not a subscriber, but since Boombox is gone, I try to listen an hour or two after 5 at work on most days. (We're not supposed to stream during business hours.)

I listen to slacker just about everyday. My favorate station on slacker has to be party metal. It reminds me of how the old boneyard on xm was 3 years ago

I would say at least 6 to 8 hours a day minimum. Even more on those days when I am on the road a great deal.

I have now turned about 10 people onto Slacker and they all have subscription with either a G2 or using their iPod Touch or iPhone for the service.

Just for the record all these folks are former sat radio subscribers who have canceled! Sometimes I wonder why I don't cancel as I hardly even listen to sat radio anymore. I think I listened to some news on their this afternoon for first time in a couple of week. I think the only real reason I keep it because of Doctor Radio and the NFL. If the NFL does what MLB did by coming up with an application for the iPhone, I might just cancel my service totally!

I'm sure the NFL will soon do what MLB did. Even now you could listen to local game coverage on am radio.

They already have a similar deal with Sprint. They could spread it out to the iPhone and Blackberry if they wanted to.

Probably 6-8. Something is going into my ears all the time at work, in the car, and at the gym. I still listen to talk and news shows occasionally though.

1 hour a day during my commute to/from work. Sometimes on the weekend I'll listen for 2 hours at night while tweakin my stations. However I still listen to Sirius for about 4 hours on the weekend, but I could replace that with Slacker time if I really wanted to.

I'm listening 2-3 hours per day mostly with the G2 using the headphones. I wish I could use the home dock more with it's great sound, but life is taking it's toll right now.
Thanks again Hank for introducing me to internet radio.
