Tom Petty is getting his own radio station.
Tom Petty Radio will launch on November 20 on SiriusXM‘s Channel 31.
According to a report on Rolling Stone, Petty will open proceedings with a two-hour show in which he’ll play songs from his own career and rare live cuts from his own archive, for which he will provide accompanying commentary.
The show will also feature the radio debut of Petty and the Heartbreakers’ concert from Boston’s Fenway Park on August 30, 2014.
“We are so honored and grateful to SiriusXM for giving our fans access to all of our music, from our biggest hits to very obscure tracks only available through this channel,” Petty said in a statement. “I intend to be very hands on and supply brand new exclusive tracks as well as rarities from our vaults. Our biggest hope is for a channel that is always entertaining in the way only radio can be.”
Heartbreakers Steve Ferrone and Benmont Tench will play guest DJ slots as well as friends of the band including Roger McGuinn, Jackson Browne and Lucinda Williams.
