SIRIUSXM RADIO will launch two channels dedicated to TOM PETTY: "TOM PETTY Radio," a limited-run channel celebrating TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS' summer tour, and a separate channel dedicated solely to TOM PETTY’s critically-acclaimed SIRIUSXM music show, "TOM PETTY’s Buried Treasure."
"TOM PETTY Radio" will launch on MAY 17th at 6p ET, via satellite on channel 111, and through the SIRIUSXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. It will offer access to PETTY's music throughout his career, from The Heartbreakers and his solo work to his work with THE TRAVELING WILBURYS and his first band, MUDCRUTCH. The channel will also feature live concert material from recent tours and some rarely heard vintage performances.
"TOM PETTY’s Buried Treasure," a commercial-free music channel, will launch on JUNE 1st, and air THURSDAY nights at 8p ET via satellite on Deep Tracks, channel 27, and through the SIRIUSXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
"TOM PETTY has a legacy of great music that began nearly 40 years ago and continues today, and SIRIUSXM is thrilled to give our listeners access to this legendary artist on two separate channels," SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said. "The limited-run ‘TOM PETTY RADIO’ channel will give our listeners access to all the music they enjoy by TOM PETTY and rarely heard live performances, and the TOM PETTY’s Buried Treasure channel will offer unique insight into one of the most creative music minds of our time."
