On the 18th of May the popular satellite radio provider will launch a dedicated, 24/7 Beatles channel. Perfect listening while you’re prepping yourself for the upcoming 50 year anniversary of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Want to hear The Beatles 24 hours per day, 8 days per week? You’ll finally be able to with a dedicated Beatles radio station courtesy of SiriusXM.
The Beatles Channel will contain a variety of programming, including a daily guest DJ session from a well-known Beatles fan, a weekly airing of Beatles-related live recording, ‘name the song’ quizzes and a call-in number that allows fans to share their special Fab Four stories. The channel will be available to non-subscribers for free preview listening through the end of May.
“I still remember the thrill of when we first heard our music on the radio, but I don’t think any of us would have imagined that we’d have our very own Beatles radio channel more than 50 years later,” McCartney said humbly in a statement. “The SiriusXM channel will have it all, ‘8 Days a Week.'”
“Now you can listen to the Beatles, ‘Any Time at All,'” added Starr. “Peace and love.” – Rolling Stone.
