XM Satellite Radio today announced that they were bringing legendary music icon Bob Dylan into the fold as a music show host. Dylan’s new show will debut on their deep rock channel in March 2006.
Dylan will offer regular commentary on music and other topics on his weekly, hour long show. He plans to host and interview special guests including other artists and will respond to emails from XM subscribers.
“Songs and music have always inspired me. A lot of my own songs have been played on the radio, but this is the first time I’ve ever been on the other side of the mic,” said Dylan. “It’ll be as exciting for me as it is for XM.”
“Bob Dylan epitomizes the American music experience and his unflagging integrity and vision defines everything we hope for XM to be,” said Lee Abrams, Chief Creative Officer, XM Satellite Radio. “It is an honor to count Bob Dylan among the members of the XM artist family, and is further testimony of XM’s commitment to create original music programming that makes a difference.”
