SiriusXM Radio Expands its Pink Floyd Channel
Sirius XM Radio announced that it will expand the reach of its channel with legendary rock band Pink Floyd. Beginning this month, SiriusXM’s Deep Tracks channel will simulcast SiriusXM’s exclusive Pink Floyd Channel Monday through Friday from Midnight to 1:00 am ET and for six hours on Sunday nights starting at 6:00 pm ET.
Additionally, SiriusXM’s Pink Floyd Channel, previously available solely as part of SiriusXM Internet Radio, will now be available 24/7 via satellite as part of SiriusXM’s extended commercial-free music channel lineup. Beginning Tuesday, July 23rd, SiriusXM’s Pink Floyd Channel will be available to listeners via satellite on channel 311 on theÂ SiriusXM LynxÂ andÂ SiriusXM EdgeÂ radios, and in select vehicles.
“SiriusXM has been the home of the Pink Floyd Channel for some time and we’ve been happy there online.Â However, now the channel is being expanded, which is great news as it means we’ll all be able to get it when we’re stuck in traffic,” said Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters. “Reaching out in drive time, love it! It could even conceivably have an impact on road rage. Though I find as I grow older and wiser I am tending to rage less at all the cretins on the roads.”
“We are happy to expand our relationship with Pink Floyd, bringing even more of our subscribers the chance to listen to their rich catalog of rock music,” Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “The expanded programming availability of Pink Floyd across SiriusXM channels brings subscribers the great iconic works of the band and its members, music that has made them some of the most influential and distinctive musicians of our time.”
The Pink Floyd Channel is curated by SiriusXM host Jim Ladd, the legendary free-form DJ who has been conducting interviews with Pink Floyd since their first visit to the United States in 1979. Ladd hosts his exclusive weekday free-form rock show featuring a unique blend of musically-themed sets, interviews and more on Deep Tracks, channel 27.
The Pink Floyd Channel is an example of SiriusXM channels created with iconic and leading artists, including Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Radio, Ozzy Osbourne’s Ozzy’s Boneyard, Pearl Jam Radio, Eminem’s Shade 45, Willie Nelson’s Willie’s Roadhouse, B.B. King’s Bluesville, Elvis Radio, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville, Siriusly Sinatra, TiÃ«sto’s Club Life Radio and Neil Diamond Radio.
