Sirius XM to Offer Limited Time David Bowie Station
Sirius XM announced that fans of David Bowie will soon be able to get their Stardust-fix via satellite on a brand new all-Bowie channel. Subscribers will have access to the limited-run station starting October 30 through November 12. In conjunction with the November 5 release of Bowie’s forthcoming album, The Next Day, the network will premier five unheard songs from the expanded edition of the album over the course of the station’s limited run. Sirius XM will also broadcast demos, rare performances and covers by bands like Nirvana, Beck, Duran Duran and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The pop-culture icon is the most recent artist to achieve satellite-takeover status, joining the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones among others who have been honored by Sirius XM with their own channel. Pearl Jam, The Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett and Bruce Springsteen are the only artists with their own full-time channels.
