At this point, they've all been replaced with turnstiles.
Ha!

Honestly, I was pretty curious about the list.
I tuned in for about an hour and a half yesterday. Everything was going fine till they played some country sounding solo Bon Jovi. I forgot to switch back.
I'll try it again later today though.

That's the thing. They definitely play a bit of country-pop, and pop-pop, both of which I'd like to skip. But the wife likes the pop songs, and it's the trade-off to getting hours of mostly decent music provided to you, in a really wide variety of genres and time periods.

On Sunday mornings, I've made a tradition of playing Margaritaville Radio. Probably every 4th song I can do without; it's either country, or an overplayed Buffet song. But overall, it sets a nice mood, and it's not the same old everyday stuff. There's live songs, Jimmy doing a cover of something good, songs from other artists, or other artists doing covers I haven't heard. And it's all in that island/ country/ jazz-pop/ folk-pop/ jam-band/ drinking-song general area. It's nice to stretch a little bit.

Do I have a special treat for you all! I noticed that when I restarted my SXM stream to play Stay At Home radio, it actually flipped through all the songs between the time I stopped and restarted. Today it did it again, but this time I caught it on video. Enjoy.

Listened to StayAtHome radio doing errands this evening in the car. Kind of an oxymoron if it is on a car radio is it not? I notice they are using an MLB play by play channel. If MLB does their stupid play all games in Arizona in a giant bubble thing this year this channel may become used.

My son thought the channel was pretty good (he liked Road Trip Radio a lot) if you were home and not sick. I suggested they have a second channel "Waiting For Death Radio" for those that were. He thought that was pretty funny. But we both have sick senses of humour.

I never bothered to see what channel they used. An MLB channel makes sense.

I tuned in for a while again yesterday. It’s a decent change of pace.

I didn't specifically ask, but sure, I'll take it.

It's definitely heavy on Buffet, but I don't think to the degree in that list. Also, I think there are other artists thrown in, not shown here. I don't recall hearing Lyle Lovett more than once in a 2 hour period.

We all collectively closed the door on Stay at Home radio this week. I can only listen to Katy Perry, Wang Chung, Bobby Mcferrin, and Jonas Brothers so many times. They kept throwing in new stuff, but the baseline playlist wasn't broad enough.

I've been listening for a few minutes in the morning when I boot my computer, but it usually doesn't stay on for more than a few songs before I change stations.
