Yeah!

IT has hit the 1980's! I will say it's was weird listening to the Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star" and Prince's "I Wanna Be Your Lover" while listening to the tail end of IT in the 70's, because I more consider them 80's songs. *shrug*

Factoid: Everyone knows that "Video Killed the Radio Star" was the first video played on MTv. What was the first song played on XM Radio?

Trick question! There were 71 songs that launched XM Radio, selected by the each channel's program director. Selections include The Beatles with "Revolution," David Bowie with "Space Oddity," Dave Matthews Band with "Satellite," and probably the most fitting song -- Queen's "Radio GAGA."


EDIT: "Daydream Believer" ... Anne Murray ... scared ...

Some of the stations have changed "frequencies" since then. For example, Highway 15 is now Highway 16.

Not the only change
Then there is Special X, which is only available via XM Online.

Re: Not the only change
I'm actually disappointed that I can't get any of the talk stations online. That was actually one of the major reasons I wanted XM.

I've already written them and told them. Of course, I love the service, but would love it more if I could get at least a couple of the talk stations on the computer.

Marvin Gaye's NBA performance of the National Anthem was also the first "video" shown on VH1.

Huh.
Now see, that's something I did not know.
