Sirius rocks a little less than previously thought

Well, I’ve now discovered that the NPR stations on Sirius don’t carry Morning Edition or All Things Considered. I can only assume that they have an agreement with their local member stations not to run those programs, thereby forcing even Sirius customers to support their local stations if they want those programs. Which sucks, because what I can get on Sirius is just a lot of Fresh Air, which is fine enough, I suppose, but not what I really want. Since CNN Headline News just runs their morning show, and PRI runs “Radio Netherlands” and NPR runs Fresh Air from 7:00-8:00 a.m., I can only really listen to BBC World Service. I’m not complaining about the BBC World Service, but it would be nice to have the programs I’m accustomed to.
