Phish Launches SiriusXM Channel Phish Radio
SiriusXM confirmed the return of Phish Radio, a channel devoted to the music of the Vermont quartet. Phish Radio first aired last summer and came back to the satellite radio airwaves this past December. Starting on Friday, June 14 at 12 p.m. ET, Phish Radio can be heard on Channel 29 and through the SiriusXM app. While past instances of Phish Radio were “pop-up affairs,” the channel seems to be around for the long haul this time around.
Phish Radio will feature live simulcasts, interviews with band members, studio tracks, songs from the band’s musical influences, live songs and more. Among the live simulcasts will be the quartet’s upcoming performances at Bonnaroo this Friday, June 14 and Sunday, June 16. Jam On, which previously held Channel 29, can now be heard on Channel 716 from Friday forward as per Bro Bible.
“My bandmates and I are thrilled to have a home at SiriusXM where Phish fans can hear music from over three decades of us making music together,” said Page McConnell. “We’re excited to make Phish Radio an extension of who we are as a band and a welcome home for fans old and new.”
“We are excited to team up with Phish and bring Phish Radio nationwide to one of the most dedicated and passionate fan bases in music history,” said Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Music Programming, SiriusXM. “The new music channel, launching live from Bonnaroo, will showcase the band’s wide-ranging library of music, as well as their iconic live performances.”
SiriusXM subscribers can listen to Phish Radio on SiriusXM radios, while those with streaming access can listen online, on-the-go with the SiriusXM mobile app or through a wide variety of connected devices. Head here for more details. New subscribers can add the service using this link.
