Tailgating with SiriusXM

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Everybody likes to have a good time.  I’m no exception. I’ve always believed that music can take any experience to the next level.  Tailgating before sporting events or concerts with the right music gets you in the right frame of mind for the fun to be had at the event.  Musically, tailgating has come a long way from simply listening to the pre-game show on the radio – from listening to a cassette on a tape player to CDs to mp3 players today.  Each development was meant to open listening restrictions.

With cassettes, you could only listen to one side at a time, then with CDs, you could listen to one album at a time.  MP3s allowed us to listen to artists’ entire catalogs on one device, but my favorite way to get myself excited before any event is SiriusXM Radio.

The depth of music on SiriusXM is almost unmatchable by anyone’s personal library.  All the live concerts and rare outtakes are pretty much impossible to get on your own, not to mention some tracks played on satellite radio which were released direct from the artist’s personal vault.  This, to me, is the best thing about satellite radio – to be able to combine rare versions of our favorite songs unheard before by the public, the album version we all know and love, and the live version that was played just last week all in one place.  So, of course,  when I tailgate before a game or concert, SiriusXM radio is involved.

For me, on almost any occasion Bruce Springsteen and E Street Radio is appropriate.  That will be especially true when Bruce and the E Street Band come in to town and blow the figurative roof off of Wrigley Field this September.  I live on the top floor of an apartment building a few blocks from Wrigley Field.  September in Chicago usually features perfect weather for BBQ and tailgating, which go great together.  I’d love to be outside enjoying the weather and grill, but of course, I  need to be within earshot of my Sirius radio and E Street Radio.  I could grab my Sirius boombox, but I want to be able to hear it everywhere, including inside even when I might be outside tending the grill.  Unfortunately, I can’t blast my inside stereo so I can hear the music outside, so I use the Whole House FM transmitter to relay the signal to my FM boombox that I’ve got playing outside next to the grill.  With music playing everywhere, whether I have to go inside and get the burgers for the grill or I’m outside grilling them, the music is constant and I don’t miss a song.

As E Street Radio plays song after song, the debate begins as to whether or not Bruce will play that song tonight.  Then a live version of “Born to Run” comes on and of course he’s going to play that one, but the version I’m listening to is from the concert he played the previous week.  No place else can you get the kind of variety as you can on SiriusXM.  I love the genre choice on SiriusXM and then, within each channel, the variety of songs and artists played on a daily basis.

Of course, getting pumped up doesn’t just pertain to a Springsteen concert and E Street Radio.  I also used SiriusXM when I was back home in Philadelphia tailgating for a Flyers playoff game.  While I doubted I would hear the Rocky theme, “Gonna Fly Now”, on SiriusXM, (although it was possible if I was listening to Cinemagic) Classic Vinyl and some 70s on 7 did the trick.  Using my Sirius radio with the car kit playing through the car speakers along with a little portable grill and some adult beverages, our tailgate had it all.  To me, all three of those components are essential, but if I had to take one away, the last thing I’d pick would be my Sirius radio.  I don’t need to have a burger or something to eat while tailgating, nor do I have to have an adult beverage to get excited or ready for the event.  I DO, however, need to have some music playing.  Of course, I have my iPod, but there are only so many songs on there and some genres are lacking and it can’t compete with the catalog on satellite radio.  I also like the unpredictability of the songs of satellite radio as compared to my iPod.  I know the extent of my iPod library, but any song could play next (within the parameters of the channel) on SiriusXM and that is kind of exciting.

So, as Summer gets into full swing, SiriusXM is an integral part of tailgating and summer fun in general.  I’m one of those people who views music as a soundtrack to our lives.  I’d love to read your own tailgate stories and what SiriusXM channel is your favorite to listen to while tailgating.  Whether it is Jam_On before a Phish or My Morning Jacket concert, Ozzy’s Boneyard before a Metallica concert, Hip Hop Nation before Jay-Z takes the stage, or just Lithium before seeing your favorite team dominate their biggest rival, I want to know what gets your juices flowing while tailgating.
