The Prince Channel also to feature Guest DJs Naomi Campbell, H.E.R and The Revolution
Radio Facts: This Memorial Day Weekend, listeners can hear an encore broadcast of an extraordinary audio performance: a never-before-heard demo of a conceptual radio show created by Prince for a Sirius Satellite Radio channel from 2005. Created by Prince around the release of his celebrated 3121 albums, the show, running more than two hours, features songs from his unparalleled catalog, personal favorite selections by other artists, mixes, interviews, and a peek into his legendary vault of unreleased studio and live recordings. Prince collaborated with DJ Rashida, who hosts the show, with Prince joining throughout. Immediately after, Prince’s original house DJ, DJ Rashida will take over the turntables to deliver a new, exclusive 2-hour mix.
The Prince Channel has been helping fans get through this thing called “life” with the late music icon’s career-spanning hits and exclusive content since May 1, and now listeners can catch even more specials from an all-star lineup of noteworthy guests as they play their favorite Prince songs and offer exclusive commentary.
The Prince Channel — which plays music from the GRAMMY®, Golden Globe and Academy Award® winner’s iconic catalog, from early recordings to his biggest hits — will feature special Guest DJs from stars including H.E.R., Maxwell, Maya Rudolph, Naomi Campbell, The Revolution, and more throughout May. The Prince Channel is available on the SiriusXM app in the Hip-Hop/R&B category.
