Blues music icon B.B. KING will begin hosting his own weekly music show for XM RADIO beginning in SEPTEMBER 2008. The program will feature a broad range of blues and gospel music hand-selected by KING, along with stories about the artists and other personal anecdotes from KING's career. In anticipation of INGg's hosting debut, TODAY XM relaunched its dedicated blues channel "Bluesville" as "B.B. KING's Bluesville" (XM 74).
"I love the blues and am looking forward to sharing my passion, stories and my favorite music with all the folks who listen to XM, one of the few places where the vibrant sounds of the blues still thrives," said B.B. KING.
