    Xm

    Ahhh... timing is everything.

    Bought XM. Got it Friday. Got it working tonight (Monday). Was told to keep it plugged in overnight (ok, for an hour, but we're just leaving it on) to connect to all the channels.

    Good ol' Fred (#44)- at 10pm they were playing The Fixx BBC in Concert. I was trying to figure out the "era" and it was Shuttered Room. So I got to hear CAMERAS IN PARIS (hint hint) as well as The Fool, I Found You, Shuttered Room and Stand or Fall before I had to pull the headphones off. My husband came downstairs and laughed at me- I really was trying hard not to wake the baby, but when I hear CAMERAS IN PARIS- and LIVE no less (hint hint July 19 and July 21 hint hint)- I'm Adam Woods reincarnate.

    Could I have turned it on at a better time?!?! Anyone else hear it? Or for that matter, what Fixx songs have you heard on XM (and not on Fred?)?

    Ahhhh....

    Listening to Fred here at work. Channel 44 on XM. And they're playing Deeper and Deeper.

    Can't beat a Fixx fix while at work!

    See? I can't stop-

    Monday morning and Channel 44 is playing Driven Out. When was the last time you heard Driven Out on the radio, if ever??

    I love my XM. Not to mention FULL coverage of Live 8 on Saturday....

    Hi Fotolinda,

    I have never had XM, but I know that Cameras in Paris feeling!!! It is not even their ultimate best song, but it always makes me giddy!
    I am the winner in any event.

    <sigh> They rarely play it lately. We can always hope, can't we?

    You're in for a treat, Your Majesty. My first Fixx show was May of last year...they just floored me. It's a special experience.

    I think the first time I saw them live was on the Ink tour. Saw them at (the now defunct) Bayou in DC. The other Linda and I saw them, then, at Jaxx in Northern VA back in... aw heck- help me out Pook!

    And since then, many many times. And every time I see them it's like it's the first time seeing them- just love them!!

    I think FotoLinda and I saw them at Jaxx in 1998. It was definitely the "Elemental" tour. ...

    And she asks for "Cameras in Paris" every time. They haven't played it yet. ...

    I don't know yet, I will have to buy mine at last minute due to some pressing family concerns going on.

    You have no idea how hard I will take this if I have to miss the show........I'll lose my head!
