US radio station Sirius XM announced today that Roger Waters will sit down for an exclusive, live Q&A session with an audience of SiriusXM listeners at their studios in New York City.
"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Roger Waters" will air live on "The Pink Floyd Channel," Sirius channel 142 and XM channel 43, and Deep Tracks, channel 27, on Wednesday, June 27 at 12:00pm ET. The special will be hosted by Jim Ladd, the legendary DJ who hosts a weekday show on Deep Tracks.
The "Town Hall" special will include Waters answering a variety of questions from the studio audience about The Wall, his career, and his interest in politics. "I am looking forward to the SiriusXM Town Hall, neatly sandwiched between Montreal and Albany. Bring it on, I'm ready," said Roger.
"It will be an exciting moment to hear one of the most influential rock musicians of all time talk about his incredible body of work, as well as take questions revealing his more personal and academic interests, and to do it live with Pink Floyd fans, meeting them face to face and taking their questions," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.
"The Pink Floyd Channel" will be available Wednesday, June 27 through Saturday, July 7 on Sirius channel 142 and XM channel 43. Additionally, "The Pink Floyd Channel" will also be available as a 24/7 channel online on channel 802 and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and mobile devices beginning Thursday, June 28 for an extended period.
