RR, congrats on getting a G2! My only suggestion might be to take a couple of stations off the player... If you leave free space, then as you use the player more it will allocate more songs to the stations you listen to more. Otherwise it starts off with about 100 songs per station, and if you fill it to capacity, then that's about all you'll get. Admittedly, assuming 3 minutes per song, 100 songs is 5 hours of listening to one station, but if you want to play one station on your portable all day at work, you'll end up with repeats. DAB, as far as station creation/customization... there's a great station creation tutorial in the Slacker forums. It goes into the details of all of the "fine tuning" selections, which are used to add artist discovery, song selection (unfamiliar, familiar, hits), timeframe in an artist's career, etc. Also, feel free to post there about what you might not be getting out of your Slacker experience. The folks there are very helpful and always seem glad to answer any questions. As RR put it, it's a nice combination of satellite radio - with the professionally programmed stations - and internet radio, where any niche can be found (or created!) And DAB, if you're looking for holiday channels on Slacker, they have 4 professionally programmed channels. They're not in the channel listings right now, but this post from their forums has links to them.
