Richard Blade Enjoys Glory Daze

Starting TONIGHT (11/16), listeners and fans of SIRIUS XM’s RICHARD BLADE can see and hear him in a regular co-starring role on the new comedy series on TBS, "Glory Daze." BLADE, who is no stranger to TV, having appeared in many programs from hosting "Video One" to writing and starring in LIFETIME’s "Long Lost Son," plays "The Voice" on the show. He is the college DJ who narrates the episodes and sets up and links many of the scenes.
BLADE was cast in the show by creator/writer/director WALT BECKER ("Old Dogs," "Wild Hogs"), who grew up listening to BLADE’s morning show on the legendary KROQ/LOS ANGELES.
BLADE appears in four of the first eight episodes and is looking forward to a second season. "They built a cool looking radio studio for me to shoot in," he said, "complete with cart machines and cassette decks. Talk about a flashback!"
The studio is very different from the computerized state of the art facilities at SIRIUS XM, where BLADE can be heard daily on FIRST WAVE (SIRIUS 22, XM 44) and on weekends hosting THE SPECTRUM’s weekly countdown show, "The Baker’s Dozen" (SIRIUS 18, XM 45). BLADE is also the station voice for SIRIUS XM’s dance channel, "Electric Area."
