Get more of the Fab Four than ever before with a Beatles-only radio station coming to SiriusXM

Beatles fan? So is the rest of the world. Everybody from babies to old nans loves themselves some Fab Four, which is why SiriusXM’s latest move is pure genius.

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.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr gave the new station their official stamps of approval.

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.
