SIRIUS hosts Beatles special

American satellite radio network SIRIUS XM Radio is to launch a new weekly three hour show dedicated to the music and legend of The Beatles.

The show will air on Little Steven’s Underground Garage SIRIUS channel 25 beginning this Sunday, September 14th.

Breakfast with The Beatles will be hosted by renowned Beatles expert and longtime host Chris Carter. The show will feature classic Beatles hits, album tracks, B-sides, live recordings and solo material recorded after the band’s split in 1970 as well as rarely heard gems. Breakfast with The Beatles will also include insights from The Beatles themselves, special themed related shows, weekly features, including Beatles covers, and music influenced by the band.

"It’s an honor to have Chris on our channel. We already play more Beatles music than any other radio channel so it fits in perfectly. Chris hosts the original Breakfast with The Beatles which started 25 years ago and is often imitated but the original has never been equaled. He belongs with us," said “Little Steven” Van Zandt.

“SIRIUS proudly welcomes the most important rock band in history to its lineup of world class audio entertainment,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SIRIUS XM Radio. “The Beatles have revolutionized both music and popular culture forever, and inspired the many generations of artists whose work is the foundation of SIRIUS' own groundbreaking music programming."

Host Chris Carter has had the honor of personally interviewing Beatles Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Pete Best. Carter has also appeared on various television programmes and news shows discussing The Beatles, including ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Entertainment Tonight among others.
