SiriusXM will once again revive Phish Radio beginning on Friday, June 14th—just in time for a live broadcast of the three Phish sets at Bonnaroo this weekend. While the two previous iterations of Phish Radio on SiriusXM were limited-engagement pop-ups, this time, Phish radio is here to stay.
Phish Radio continues SiriusXM’s trend of creating music channels with iconic and leading artists. Other artists with dedicated SiriusXM channels include The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Pearl Jam, Eminem, LL COOL J, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.
Phish Radio will play music from the band’s extensive career, including their vast catalog of live songs, studio tracks and musical influences. Listeners will also hear recurring shows hosted by band members and live broadcasts from their 2019 tour, as well as exclusive interviews and commentary from each band member.
“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 keyboardist Page McConnell in a statement along with the announcement. “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.”
