SIRIUSXM RADIO will launch a commercial-free "The PINK FLOYD Channel," featuring music, interviews and historic concert broadcasts from the PINK FLOYD archives. Airing from FRIDAY, MAY 25th at noon ET to MONDAY, MAY 28th on channel 27 -- and via the SIRIUSXM Internet Radio App on FRIDAY, JUNE 29th for an extended period -- "The PINK FLOYD Channel" will be curated and hosted by SIRIUSXM host JIM LADD.
The channel will feature PINK FLOYD's classic albums in their entirety, as well as solo albums by PINK FLOYD members ROGER WATERS, DAVID GILMOUR, RICHARD WRIGHT, NICK MASON and SYD BARRETT, live concerts, rarities, demo versions of classic PINK FLOYD songs and studio outtakes. LADD will also conduct in-depth interviews with ROGER WATERS, DAVID GILMOUR and NICK MASON.
"I can't think of a better home for the PINK FLOYD catalogue, and all the solo stuff, than SIRIUSXM," WATERS said. "How cool for all our fans and what a great way to introduce the work to new generations of listeners."
"PINK FLOYD has earned an international audience and created some of the most distinctive rock music the world has known and this channel will bring that diverse and distinctive catalog of music only to SIRIUSXM subscribers," Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said.
