The review in MacAddict tried one in San Francisco and agreed that it took a while to find a clear frequency, but they were eventually successful. I use 88.3 for my CD changer in the Bay Area.

I had supposed clear frequencies (in the "88s" as well) , but they always floated in some damn other station. Ultimately not worth the hassle for me - but other cities may be better...

Well this old thread was slightly depressing regarding the prospects for tiki/exotica music on satellite radio, but hope does spring eternal. I found this article interesting and even a bit encouraging, and with some practical info. as well:

I admit I didn't search TC thoroughly to see if this has been posted on before, but the "On The Rocks" channel on XM is alive and well, online only I believe. I've known this for several years really, but haven't tuned into them in a long time. But tonight I listened to the channel and I'm quite impressed. I've heard Stanley Black, Walter Wanderley, Louis Prima, and a great Lambert-Hendricks-Ross version of Caravan.

Well, it appears that XM has yanked On The Rocks for good. So much for a good thing.
