Jun 05, 2013 - 4:40 PM - by SIRIUSaboutXM
"Richard Pryor Radio" Launches on Jamie Foxx's SiriusXM channel The Foxxhole
> Limited-run, pop-up three-day channel will be devoted to almost four decades of the stand-up comedic genius' work
> Foxx to introduce legendary concerts including "Live at the Sunset Strip" on "Richard Pryor Radio"
In celebration of the five-time GRAMMY® and Emmy Award-winning comedian's life and work, and the upcoming release of No Pryor Restraint: Life in Concert, SiriusXM's "Richard Pryor Radio" will air from Friday, June 7 at 1:00 pm ET through 3:00 am ET on Monday, June 10 on The Foxxhole, SiriusXM 96
"Richard Pryor Radio" will feature uninterrupted material by the comedian spanning from 1966 through 2005. The broadcast will include material from his legendary albums including Craps (After Hours); …Is It Something I Said?; Wanted/Richard Pryor - Live in Concert; Here and Now; …And It's Deep Too!; Evolution/Revolution: The Early Years and more. Jamie Foxx will introduce legendary concerts including Live on the Sunset Strip on "Richard Pryor Radio."
"I can't think of anything more attention-grabbing than a Richard Pryor binge-o-rama. Who can laugh that long and hard? Thank god for Obamacare, because after December, broken funny bones can't be used as a pre-existing condition," said Jennifer Lee Pryor, Richard Pryor's widow. "Seriously, I'm thrilled to see Richard's extensive body of work celebrated on SiriusXM. There was never anyone like him, no one as funny. I'll be listening, remembering and laughing."
"Richard Pryor—one of my greatest inspirations and influences—revolutionized the way we perform and listen to comedy," said Jamie Foxx. "I am honored to transform The Foxxhole into 'Richard Pryor Radio' and invite listeners across the country to join me in paying tribute to a true entertainment icon."
"It's a rare treat to present 'Richard Pryor Radio' since Jamie Foxx and many of the comedians on SiriusXM were inspired by Pryor himself," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "The genius of Richard Pryor and his incredible body of work will come to life during this special takeover by one of comedy's true pioneers."
Richard Pryor was a stand-up comedian and entertainer widely known for his examinations of the American experience and comedic analysis of controversial issues such as race, sex and drugs. The multi-talented entertainer, known for his sharp wit and tongue, explored contemporary issues with humanity and honesty. On Tuesday, June 11, Shout! Factory will release No Pryor Restraint: Life in Concert, a seven CD and two DVD collection, the most comprehensive ever devoted to the comedian.
Note: previous launch was December 30, 2010 celebrating his 70th birthday

Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert
May 29, 2013 - 6:13 PM - by SIRIUSaboutXM
Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert for Oklahoma
On SXM 59 The Highway
NBC hosts "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert" Wednesday night
Usher and Darius Rucker have been added to the lineup of performers set to hit the stage for the May 29 "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert" organized and headlined by Blake Shelton.
Others set to perform include Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, as well as Grammy Award-winning artists Miranda Lambert, Reba and Vince Gill.
Usher is a coach alongside Shelton on NBC's "The Voice" and is a multi-platinum recording artist.
Usher has been ranked by the Recording Industry Assn. of America as one of the best-selling artists in American music history, having sold over 44 million albums worldwide. He has won numerous awards including eight Grammy Awards and was named the #1 Hot 100 artist of the 2000s decade.
Billboard named him the second most successful artist of the 2000s decade, with his career-propelling 2004 album "Confessions" being ranked as the top solo album of the 2000s decade. Usher has attained nine Hot 100 #1 hits (all as a lead artist) and 18 Hot 100 top-10 singles.
Rucker, who has been the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish since the band was formed in 1986, is now a certified country performer. His latest album, "True Believers," included the release of single "Wagon Wheels," which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Chart.
Tickets for the concert went on sale Saturday morning and sold out in under five minutes. The event will take place May 29 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.
The concert will be televised live at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. It will also air on cable networks Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT on either a live or delayed basis.
"Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy," Shelton said. "This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero."
The event will raise funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Working with their local community partners, United Way of Central Oklahoma will use the Fund for immediate, intermediate and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts in Oklahoma following the tornadoes that devastated Moore earlier this week.
