ACCURADIO is launching three new "secret agent" music channels timed to TOMORROW's hotly-anticipated release (in selected theaters) of the new JAMES BOND movie "Skyfall."
The lead channel, "Secret Agent Radio," will be a personalizable radio station that plays hundreds of tracks from popular spy- and secret agent-themed movie and TV show soundtrack albums, ranging from 1964's "Dr. No" soundtrack (composed by JOHN BARRY) and the soundtrack album from the 1966 TV show "Mission: Impossible" (composed by LALO SCHIFRIN) to recent soundtrack CDs from TV shows like "Alias" (composed by MICHAEL GIACCHINO) and the new movie "Skyfall" (composed by THOMAS NEWMAN).
In addition, ACCURADIO will launch a station called "Channel 007" that focuses exclusively on the various JAMES BOND soundtrack albums. It will feature BOND movie theme songs by such vocalists as SHIRLEY BASSEY, TOM JONES, PAUL MCCARTNEY & WINGS, CARLY SIMON and ADELE.
ACCURADIO will also launch a station called "Open Channel D" that focuses exclusively on TV show soundtracks, such as various "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and "The Girl from U.N.C.L.E." soundtrack albums ("Open Channel D" is a well-known line of dialogue used by U.N.C.L.E agents NAPOLEON SOLO, ILLYA KURYAKIN, APRIL DANCER and MARK SLATE when using their communicators to call their headquarters), various "Mission: Impossible" soundtrack albums, plus "Secret Agent," "I Spy," "The Saint," and others.
The three channels are programmed by ACCURADIO Founder/CEO KURT HANSON, who said, "These are channels we've been hoping to launch for years. The great buzz on 'Skyfall' really 'lit the fuse,' as it were, for us to get this done."
Regarding the "Open Channel D" station, HANSON noted, "We believe that station's focus on the great secret agent TV shows of the 1965-67 era should prove very popular among the attractive and desirable Male 56-58 demographic."
