Backspin Old Skool Rap and Hip-Hop


I've got this cool XMP3 player and a year's subscription to XM Radio.  I pipe it through the Bose SoundDock II digital music system I got for Christmas to set the music free.

There is lots of content to choose from.  There's a Disney channel for the kids, a top 20 channel for my wife and everything for me, from comedy to news to grunge to hip-hop.  One station, however, gets more of my listening time than any other, and it might be surprising which station that is.

It's channel 65, Backspin.  It plays "old skool rap and hip-hop" and I can't get enough.  I listen while I work and groove to old Ice-T, Eric B. & Rakim, Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC, Sugar Hill Gang, Slick Rick, Salt-N-Pepa, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys and whatever.  I love it.

A wicked XMP3 player promotion I wrote about is still going on until January 31.  Click over for details.
