    I commute in and out of Toronto every day with the rest of the "herd" and am curious what the rest of you commuters listen to on the way to and from work?

    I head for work at 6:30 AM and drive home at 4:00 PM (EST). Any suggestions? I'm open to any sort of programming whether it be talk, music, or mixed.

    1/2 hour to work - I listen to Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio, especially during football season. During the commercials, which there are many, I listen to music, usually in the pop category.

    1/2 hour back home - strictly music, often times in the rock category. Or one of the Walk the Dog channels. :icon_smile:

    In the morning, Norton and Friends on XM202 is great. (Sirius 197 via THE BEST OF XM)

    The Drive

    To work about 25 minutes: Either 70s on 7 or Escape--especially when I'm driving on snow and ice here in Minnesota...

    Home: 70s on 7 or Hannity.

    +1 O&A is a great talk program, and gets me off to a good start most mornings, laughing at one thing or another.

    In the AM I listen to The Opening Drive on Sirius NFL 124 , it can sometimes sound like Giants Radio, when it does I switch to 120 ESPN and listen to Mike and Mike in the Morning (but they have like 20 minutes of commercials / breaks an hour).

    At 10:00 am I can't stand Adam Schein (NFL 124) so I tune over to Colin Cowherd on ESPN 120. When he goes off, I listen to music (70's, Coffeehouse, Spectrum) until 3:00 PM

    At 3:00 pm I listen to the best show on Sirius, Moving the Chains with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan, they are on until 7:00 PM.

    I have a 40 minute commute. Most mornings, I listen to the last hour of the Chris Moyles Show on BBC1, because between Moyles and his crew, and the amazingly bad British taste in pop music, something will make me laugh.

    If Moyles is on vacation, I'll either listen to Mike & Mike on ESPN Radio, or the local sports-talk guys if something interesting is happening. CNBC has gained some time during the recent economic troubles.

    In the office, it's mainly The Spectrum, with diversions to The Loft or E Street Radio, and sometimes World Soccer Daily on 125(?).

    On the way home, it will be one of the following - First Wave, Lithium, 70s on 7 (although I liked Totally 70s better), Outlaw Country, Backspin (when it comes back), CNBC, CNN, Siriusly Sinatra, Underground Garage, or the stations I listen to in the office. Depends on my mood, and what's playing when I flip through my presets.

    I went through a phase of Howard and Raw Dog, but tired of them. And I listened to 60s Vibrations pre-merger, but I don't care for 60s on 6. (60s-style DJs. Urgh.)

    I'm going to give Willie's Place and Bluesville some time in the new year.

    I have an hour and a half commute everyday to work and an hour and a half back. When working dayshift, I listen to the last part of Afternoon Advice replay on 99, on the way home I listen to the Covino and Rich replay or music. When working nights I listen to the last part of BTLS on my way in and CNN news or music on the way home.

    I feel your pain... The commute in and out of Toronto is a nightmare too. Moving closer to the office this year sometime.

    I usually cycle between Top 20 on 20, KISS, Pop2K, The Pulse, Mix, and SiriXM Stars Too.

    If it's the afternoon rush hour drive on wednesday, I tune into America's Talk for Leo the Tech Guy. His AM/XM Show is a bit dumbed down compared to his This Week In Tech podcast (which is targeted towards geeky computer people instead of a wide audience), but I still enjoy listening to him answer (or at least try to) people's tech & computer questions.

    It takes me about an half hour both directions to go to work. But I mainly listen to Howard Stern in the morning and the ride home I either listen to Octane, Liquid Metal, The Highway or some other station.

    Doctor Radio and NPR are my big ones for commuting in the mornings. Then in the afternoon I move on to CNN and/or Music depending on the time of the day and how far I am traveling.
