The benefits of Sirius/XM Radio: access to Metropolitan Opera performances

If you haven’t already gotten on the Sirius/XM radio bandwagon, what are you waiting for?  Every opera lover and aficionado should have access to the plethora of great performances offered by Met Radio.  It’s worth the $15 per month and Sirius/XM makes it really very easy to have access to their station by offering it online and for your car, but what is really cool is the little portable players that can be purchased for less than an I-Pod. I recently purchased one of these great little devices and I love it because I don’t have to wait for Met broadcasts on the radio, I have access to the radio weekly and also all of the other great stations on Sirius/XM (not to mention there is a great Classical music station and one that offers film music, as well as musical theater).

This is my little guy.  I love it.

  1. If you like Sirius XM then see their “rags to riches” story on DVD. The movie is called “Stock Shock” and it goes over the history, development, and near-death experience of the stock. I did not know the inventor of sirius xm was a woman!–well she is now, at least. DVD is cheaper at http://www.stockshockmovie.com, but the DVD is pretty much everywhere for sale.
