Comments: Live From RDU, It's Wednesday Afternoon!

Hope you took advantage of your chance to get the "UNC National Champs" t-shirts while they're available!

Can you tell any difference between XM and Sirius when the volume is increased to a high level? I suppose that it would be difficult to notice differences if you have road noise in the background. Was it the station choices that you preferred with XM?

I never could stay awake through Ascent of Man no matter how hard I tried. The material was fascinating, but his delivery was coma city.

Marc, I'm afraid I'm unable to comment upon the quality of their signal or the receiving equipment. My comments were related to the stations, the playlists, and the annoying habit of some Sirius DJs to inject their left-wing politics into chatter between songs. Jeez, what's the point of paying for that crap when you can already get it for free.

As for Mr. Bronowski, well, it's tough to argue with Kevin's assessment, but the appeal of the material for me is strong enough to overcome his slow, sleep inducing delivery.

Charles, the link for "Civilisation" shows it in VHS format. Am I missing something?

Kerry - Link changed to something that does actually have DVDs of Civilisation available, though it appears to be a European import, so check your DVD player carefully for compatibility.
