Sirius XM rules, without a doubt. I mix it up a bit too. Since I am in my fifties, my favorite music is anything 80's.

Yes this ^^^^^ I am still in my thirties but the 80s on 8 is one of my favorites.

I love my Pandora app combined with unlimited data. I have several stations saved but my obsessions is Whiskey Myers radio. They're a lesser known band but dang do the have some good tunes. Also on the station, I have Chris Stapleton, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Turnpike Troubadours, Eric Church, Pat Green, and some other bands. A lot of them are good Texas country/rockabilly bands and I've definitely got some trucking tunes mixed in: Jerry Reid and CW McCall!

A lot of octane or liquid metal, although recently I've been jamming out to Elvis radio. But I rotate the first two mostly. Then I'll either check in on some sports and see what the hell is going on, then I'm back to octane... may be addicted to octane. 😂

I absolutely love my SiriusXm Radio. So thankful that Prime has these in our trucks all we do is activate and pay for the subscription. Definitely makes the long hours of driving go by so much easier. I listen to a wide blend of music and talk radio depending on my mood that day. Here lately though I have been plugging my phone into the radio and actually listening to a lot of different podcasts. The Trucking Truth Podcast being one of those.

Not being a very tech savvy guy, I didn't realize I can plug my phone into the radio for podcasts. I just assumed it was a USB charging port lol.

I'll hafta fumble my way through figuring out how to listen to TT podcasts on there.

Oh, and as to my listening preference, I'm all over the dial.

Willy's roadhouse

70's, 80's, 90's

Bluegrass

Octane

Hair nation

As much as I love music, and it's funny now that I think about it, but I don't listen to much while driving. It can be distracting to me.

I had an XM subscription a couple years ago, but I stopped it after the intro price went away and didn't miss it.

Then for a while I had Spotify premium and loved it, but they started doing this stupid thing where every track faded into the next. "Gapless playback" is what they call it. I get it, I was a DJ back in ancient times. But guess what? There's supposed to be a period of silence between tracks when you're listening to Beethoven, or to Sonic Youth or Bob Seger or whoever for that matter. Unless you want to imagine you're driving your truck while there's a rave happening back there in the sleeper, I guess.

So now I just tune in whatever local station I can find, usually during the wee hours if I get sleepy. Coast to Coast AM is still entertaining sometimes, but I miss Art Bell. Classic Rawk does the best at keeping me awake. ("Rock that really rawks!" "Timeless Classics!" Still cracks me up to hear "timeless" attributed to Led Zeppelin.)

I'm the exact opposite. If I don't have music playing in the background to ground my brain, my mind would get distracted.

When near larger metropolitan areas, I find myself listening to classical music, usually on NPR. I find it exceptionally calming, and sort of a palate-cleanser for my ears. Then I go back to my 60s/70s/80s mix.

When I get to an exit, or I'm in congested traffic/big cities I will turn down the radio. While I can tune the noise out from time to time. I find it best to not have the distraction there to begin with.

Doing ok I guess. Feeling pretty burnt out lately. We've been running 2800-3200 miles a week except for the week we go home, but even that week pushes 2000 miles. I'm in dire need of a vacation I think.

But all in all, we're still very happy with CalArk although it's time for a new truck. Poor Dex has just about had it.
