All You Need Is Love: The Beatles To Play SiriusXM Radio 'Eight Days A Week'

By Barry Janoff

May 2, 2017: On June 1, people worldwide will be singing, "It was 50 years ago today, when Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play" as the iconic album from the legendary group, The Beatles, celebrates its golden anniversary.

In anticipation of that event, SiriusXM is launching The Beatles Channel, "to present unique and exclusive programming in collaboration with and fully authorized by The Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd."

Despite not having performed together since the late 1960s, The Beatles continue to have a major influence in music, one of the key reasons whey SiriusXM is launching the channel.

"We are so proud to announce the most popular band in history has joined us for their own SiriusXM channel," Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer for SiriusXM, said in a statement. "We've worked with The Beatles and Apple Corps Ltd. to create a channel that is as vital today as when the band's music was first recorded.

"The channel will be all-things-Beatles, 24/7. The soundtrack of our world, made by John, Paul, George and Ringo."

The Beatles Channel is scheduled to launch at exactly 9:09 AM (ET) — a reference to their song, "One After 909" —  on May 18. It will be included as part of SiriusXM's free listening preview program, offering 24/7 listening on inactive SiriusXM radios from May 17 to May 30.

If there is any doubt as to why The Beatles are getting a SiriusXM channel — the question is more why it took so long — one need look no farther than the group's current impact in social media: Their Facebook platform has more than 38 million followers, and there are more than 3.3 million followers on their Twitter page.

"I still remember the thrill of when we first heard our music on the radio, but I don't think any of us would have imagined that we'd have our very own Beatles radio channel more than 50 years later," Paul McCartney said in a statement. “The SiriusXM channel will have it all, 8 Days a Week."

In addition to music, The Beatles Channel will offer such programming as:

Breakfast with The Beatles: A daily morning show hosted by musician and lifelong Beatles aficionado, Chris Carter, featuring music, stories and all things Beatles.

A Day in the Life: A daily feature noting milestones in the lives and career of The Beatles.

My Fab Four: A daily guest DJ session, hosted by musicians influenced by The Beatles, celebrities, and super fan listeners, each playing their four favorite Beatles songs.

The Fab Fourum: A live weekly call-in roundtable show hosted by veteran broadcaster Dennis Elsas; TV producer and author, Bill Flanagan; and panelists including authors, musicians and fans.

Get Back — The Beatles in Britain: A monthly show recorded in and around London and Liverpool that offers the UK perspective of the Beatles phenomenon, hosted by Geoff Lloyd.

There also will be dedicated phone line — 844-999-BEATLES — for people to make requests and share their Beatles stories.

On June 1, The Beatles Channel will celebrate "Pepper Day" on the 50th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, playing the album's new Anniversary Edition stereo mix in its entirety.

The album spotlight will be accompanied by commentary by the album's original producer, the late George Martin; and by his son, Giles Martin, who produced the album's new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes from The Beatles' session tapes, guided by his father's original, Beatles-preferred mono album mix.

The Beatles will release a "suite of lavishly presented" Sgt. Pepper Anniversary Edition packages on May 26 (via Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe).

"It’s crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art," McCartney writes in the introduction for the Sgt. Pepper Anniversary Edition.
