Tom Petty Curates His Own Radio Station

Share This:

Petty use-thisFollowing in the footsteps of Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and the Grateful Dead, Tom Petty is the next rock legend to launch his very own SiriusXM satellite radio channel. The aptly titled Tom Petty Radio premiered on Friday, November 20th on channel 31 of the radio network, as well as through the corresponding smartphone app and streaming website.

The Grammy-winning performer and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer himself will play curator, sharing more than four decades of material from his career – from his core Heartbreakers catalog to covers, exclusive live tracks and tunes from side projects like all-star band the Traveling Wilburys. Just a few tidbits we’re promised include interviews with Petty, special guest DJ sessions hosted by members of the Heartbreakers and stars like Lucinda Williams, Jackson Browne and Roger McGuinn, as well as the worldwide radio debut of Petty and the Heartbreakers’ concert at Fenway Park in Boston on August 30th, 2014.

The rocker’s currently weekly SiriusXM show, the eclectic Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure, is now entering its ninth season. Both new and archival episodes of the critically-acclaimed show will continue on the new channel. For more information, check out SiriusXM’s website.

As well, Palladia will offer a Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers programming feast on Thanksgiving Day! It’s all part of Palladia’s 24-hour Tom Petty Thanksgiving Takeover.

The 24-hour programming will include the world premiere of the new concert film Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at Fenway Park, directed by Martyn Atkins, plus Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers concerts, documentaries, festival appearances and music videos. It begins at 7:00AM EST on Thanksgiving Day.
