Sunday Update/Free Audio

For those with XM satellite radio, fellow blogger Bart Given is on MLB Live Weekend today.  As of now he’ll be on around 5:30pm on channel XM 175.  Times have changed in the last 24 hours.  I was included in an update since I found something people here might like to check out.

UPDATE #1:  The time slot has changed to 6:30 p.m. ET

UPDATE #2:  Rob C. has found a free trial for XM on their site.  Sign-up and listen on your computer (not just to me…)

UPDATE #3:  Bumped for James Shields, now on at 5:30 p.m.  Just tune in for the whole show!  (This never happened when I actually worked for a team…oh the life of a blogger)

Usually when you see these “free trials” it’s always with a credit card number.  Which I’ll never do.  But XM Radio only needs an email address.  That’s it.

Now it does say “7 Day Trial”, but I tried this trial last night and it says it will expire on March 31st.  Might be something to do with the end of the month messing up their system but as you can figure out, that’s not close to 7 days.  Nothing free comes without a hitch I suppose. LOL.

But it is free and I am listening to XM right now.  So if you’re looking for something new to listen to for a few days for free you can try it out.  Why not?  It’s the weekend.  Time to do stuff like this.

Music channels are pretty good.  One is Bruce Springsteen 24/7.  Only one all Blues station, by the way I have a Blues link to give out too.

The 80’s channel right now is playing an episode of Casey Kasem’s Top 40 from March 29th, 1986.  That’s a neat idea.  Dire Straits playing right now. Maybe they’ll mention what episode of Miami Vice was on that week. 🙂

Anyway Bart will be on MLB Home Plate this afternoon so if you have XM Radio or have the free trial you can give a listen.

As for audio that’s free with no expiry date here is DawgFM’s website.

They now have the internet stream up and running.  Nothing but all Canadian Blues music.  Click on the link and there you go.  Either way some free audio to enjoy on a Sunday.

Thanks again to those listeners/readers who sent letters of support for DawgFM.  The CRTC hearing is this Tuesday. Good luck to the gang heading to Ottawa.

Was talking to Tyler King after Offsides on Friday at CFRC.  Mentioned DawgFM and he logically thought there had been a blues station in Canada before.  Nope.  We know how popular ‘The Blues Project’ is on the station.  That’s on 6-8pm on Saturdays.  Very good show for those who haven’t tuned in before.

Off I go to listen to some music online.  Enjoy what’s left of the weekend.
