Check this out:

One of the most seasoned and accomplished astronauts in history, Colonel Chris Hadfield captivated the world earlier this year when he released a series of breathtaking photographs and educational videos about life in space. You, however, probably know him from his zero-gravity version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddityâ€. Well, today he stopped the SiriusXM studios and in honor of our brand spankin’ new limited-engagement David Bowie Channel, spoke with us about how the space performance came about and performed “Space Oddity†with his feet on squarely on planet Earth:

My predictions for the next 2 Limited Engagements (Ch 108)

No proof whatsoever on this, but mainly based on the fact that these are directly related to New York City where SXM is based and seems to focus the majority of their special events around.


A SuperBowl Channel

There have been 47 Superbowls, but never have any been played in NYC until this year- very historic event for Gotham City! SXM will want to get in on this event in some sort of fashion I'm pretty sure.

Could include all musical acts preforming during the game and all pregame festivities like this:
SUPER BOWL KICKOFF SPECTACULAR
JAN 27
Liberty State Park
Tune in as the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee in partnership with Macy’s will produce the “Super Bowl Kickoff Spectacular,†a free, ticketed event featuring performances by Daughtry and Goo Goo Dolls, with additional acts to be announced, and a first-class Macy’s Fireworks show. The kickoff event, the first to ever be associated with a Super Bowl, will take place on Monday, January 27, along the Hudson River at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, and serve as the official launch to the weeklong events.
Also this may be included: FOX Super Bowl Sunday Pregame Puts America in a New York/New Jersey State of Mind - Ratings | TVbytheNumbers

Bruno Mars & RH Chili Peppers are performing at the game and there will be many others musical guests on the pregame- they could be featured on this channel.

Actually, I think a channel like SXM Hits 1 will probably have some sort of Bruno Mars weekend also.






(Transferring the discussion from the AT 40 thread)

A Beatles Channel

SiriusXM is based out of NYC and clearly programs most of its content & contests for NYC. This very, very historic event- The biggest music act in all of music history- makes their 1st ever US appearance in New York.... 50 Years Ago- The Golden Anniversary.

And think of all the various content this would cover:

Beatles Entire catalog- music from all their albums & singles, outtakes from the Anthology Boxset, all projects after they broke up like Love (Cirque du Soleil), The Naked Let it Be, etc which would be great by itself!

Ringo's solo catalog and with all formations of his All Star Band

George's solo catalog and with his time in The Traveling Willburys

John's solo catalog and with the ONO Band

And Paul- he could (and already has on XM) have an entire channel just for his solo work that could play for 24 hours without repeating 1 song!!


Put all that together and you have the Greatest Channel Ever! I can't see SXM not doing at least something for this huge part of New York History!

And maybe Paul & Ringo will sing a revised version of Sgt Pepper: "It was 50 years ago TODAY!"

Well, I can't take full credit, because none of this will actually be on any of the Limited Engagement Channels, but we have some Special Events this weekend:

Classic Vinyl’s Fab Feb: Celebrating BEATLES ALL Month on Ch 26

Sports Anthems Radio A limited run channel will feature songs often played to fire up the fans at sporting events across the country, including well-known tunes by Guns n' Roses, AC/DC, Gary Glitter and more.

Bruno Radio on Ch 3

Motley Crue Radio on Ch 39
