Bob Marley Tuff Gong Radio Comes To SiriusXM
The spirit of Bob Marley lives on Bob Marley Tuff Gong Radio, the new permanent channel on SiriusXM that launches Thursday, December 3rd!
You’ll hear familiar and rare recordings, woven with current artists of Tuff Gong. You also enjoy the music of artists Bob still influences as we celebrate his heartfelt works, along with spotlights on his songwriting, and his children’s music. Bob’s daughter, Grammy-winning entertainer, fashion designer and author Cedella Marley, will host her own radio series, “Nice Time”, inviting listeners into her world for an ‘upful bit’ of conversation, music and niceness. Bob’s son, Grammy winner Stephen, and grandson Skip, a recent Grammy nominee, will also host shows, offering perspective on Marley’s impact and influence
Look for additional slated shows originating from the Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica, including Jam-In, a monthly live music session featuring Jamaica’s hottest sound systems and selectors. The December edition, headlined by the legendary Stone Love Movement, will also feature the popular Jamaican comedy duo Ity & Fancy Cat. Headquartered in Kingston, Tuff Gong reflects Marley’s vision to use music as an instrument of inspiration and empowerment. The landmark compound includes a recording studio, music production and distribution offices, and the lone vinyl record pressing plant in the region.
“This year marked Bob’s 75th earthstrong and the 40th anniversary of the release of “Redemption Song.” Partnering with SiriusXM for a channel devoted to not only his life’s work but also second and third generations of artists he has inspired (including our own children and grandchildren), reflects the continuing reach of Bob Marley’s music and message beyond the boundaries of time and genre,” said Rita Marley, co-Founder of Tuff Gong International and wife of Bob Marley.
This is all needed, more than ever, right now, and made for the world community of love Bob Marley built through his renowned career. A 24/7 tribute to Bob Marley’s influential and unforgettable impact on the world!
