I have been listening to the BB station over the past 4-5 days when im in my car and im truly enjoying the station.  Unless it is pure coincidence, i believe the folks at sirius must have set up an algorithm that puts more weight on certain songs because i hear them more frequently.  if all the BB's album songs and solo songs were inputted with equal weight this would not happen.  For example, in my limited time in the car, i must have listened cumulative a total of 4 hours.  In those 4 hours over 4-5 days I heard "God Only Knows" approximately 5 times, "Do It Again" approximately 4 times, etc.  i'm not complaining but if i loaded all of the songs into my IPOD and hit shuffle I would probably have 36 hours of music before songs would repeat.  Anyone else having this experience?

Yes, and that's kind of par for the course when it comes to XM Sirius, which is why they'll never get a subscription fee from my pocket.  

Over the years, I've had several free trials, and it only takes a couple of days to start hearing repeats on the stations I like.  

I listened to the BB channel a lot during the Memorial Day Weekend, and heard a ton of repeats.

I only heard it the one time.   But, I've heard Getcha Back and Maybe I Don't Know several times.

I have heard Do it Again and Darlin a few times. Sloop John B and Surfer Girl a few times. But I have also heard I'm Bugged At My Old Man, This Car Of Mine, Crack At Your Love, Rio Grande, Full Sail, San Francisco, You and I (Denny), Cuckoo Clock, some live cuts from 1965, a Carl solo cut and Steamboat. SO yes, repeats, but a lot of cool stuff. I have heard several Mike solo cuts, too. Haven't really enjoyed them too much.

I joke...but if I was renting a car, say on vacation in Maui, I'd be all over this if offered.

I read somewhere they were going to play some alternative versions and rare cuts(?).

I've heard alternate versions of Let Him Run Wild and Surfin Sufari.   For rarities, I've heard 4th of July and Problem Child.

Late arrival to the discussion.  Mrs. C. subscribes to the service, and only recently programmed  in the Beach Boys channel.  Yes, some tracks are played more often than others, but that's a minor complaint.  These programmers go deep into the Boys' enormous catalogue, along with their solo ventures, etc.  I have to say I'm impressed and joyous to hear so much great music and so little blabbing, as I hear on most of the Sirius channels.

Yesterday:  "She Knows Me Too Well."  Wanted to pull off the road to listen!  Today, "The Little Girl I Once Knew."  Doesn't get any better than that.
