I'll post this in both Forums.

Well,,,,,I'm scared to purchase either one for fear of making the WRONG choice.

I like Guitar BLUES.

I lean towards Walter Trout, Muddy Waters, Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Roy Rogers, Albert King, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Gary Moore or SRV (This is my short list) type of Guitar blues.

Any opinions on who delivers the type of Blues I'm into?? XM or Sirius??

Harley,

Go to www.sirius.com and lick on "Listen" at the top of the page. There's a 3-day trial.

There's a fine Blues station 74 but I only listened to it a few time. Not enough to know if it's for you. But it's worth it to check it out online for free and see if it's your style. Good Luck!

Xm has the same free trial. I did a quick comparison and found that each has only one blues channel so it would be a toss up in my opinion.

SIRIUS, however, has exlcusive rights to the broadcast of the National Blues Festival, a once a year event.

Well, there you go, I think it would be a no brainer at this point, get Sirius!
