Geoff Lloyd gets SiriusXM Beatles radio show
Former Absolute Radio presenter Geoff Lloyd has secured a monthly show on SiriusXM’s new Beatles Channel.
The American satellite radio operator is launching the new channel on May 18th.
And on its schedule will be a programme with Geoff Lloyd called Get Back: The Beatles in Britain – ‘A monthly show recorded in and around London and Liverpool that offers the UK perspective of the Beatles phenomenon’.
The Beatles Channel will showcase all-things-Beatles with regular and special programming spanning the history-making careers of the band and its members: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The channel will explore The Beatles’ entire career including their hits and deeper tracks, live recordings, rarities, and solo albums, while also spotlighting musicians who have inspired, and have drawn inspiration from, The Beatles.
“I still remember the thrill of when we first heard our music on the radio,” McCartney said. “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. The SiriusXM channel will have it all, 8 Days a Week.”
Ringo Starr added: “Great news, The Beatles will have their own channel on SiriusXM. Now you can listen to The Beatles, Any Time at All. Peace & Love.”
The Beatles Channel will launch at exactly 9:09 am ET on Thursday, May 18, and will be celebrated as part of SiriusXM’s free listening preview program, offering 24/7 listening on inactive SiriusXM radios from May 17 to May 30.
