"I hope listeners will feel as if I'm sitting next to them in their car, or on a couch in their home, and this Englishman is slapping old records onto a portable record player," stated WHITCOMB. "I'm excited to introduce styles of music like ragtime, or some old crooner, that are new and fresh to listeners, while sharing stories about life today or yesterday. I may even pick up a ukulele and strum and sing. It’s going to be spontaneous and entertaining, and the audience will learn a little more about the great treasure, the fine legacy that is American Pop Song."
"We're excited to welcome a multi-talented entertainer and renowned musician like IAN to our satellite radio lineup," Premiere Radio Networks SVP/Programming Jennifer Leimgruber stated: "Music fans from around the world will undoubtedly enjoy the unique mix of music and history that only Ian can deliver."
