SiriusXM’s channel devoted to the music of Prince kicks off its limited run launch with an extraordinary never-before-heard demo of a conceptual radio show created by Prince for a Sirius Satellite Radio channel from 2005. The show can be heard for the first time ever on channel 30 and the SiriusXM mobile app on Friday, May 1st at 7 pm ET.
Created by Prince around the release of his celebrated 3121 album, the potential channel demo, 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.
