No, I don't want to duct-tape an iPod to an XM radio receiver

Gadgetfilter: One portable device that plays mp3's and gets satellite radio. Does it exist? Will it exist in the future?

mr. junkbox loves listening to talk radio (especially BBC and This American Life, though he'll listen to people talk about almost anything really). He lusts after XM radio or Sirius, but he also hauls a CD player around with him to listen to his favorite music.
The last few years, I've been hoping for a device that would do both; is it out there? Do they have them in say, Japan, and maybe they'll be available in the US in another year or two? Or is such a thing unfeasable for technical or market reasons?
I'm thinking that it's time to go ahead and get him an iPod, and let him use Podcasts to get his talk radio fix. Time to stop holding out, or is there still hope?
