RODNEY BINGENHEIMER LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
“I’m so honoured to be on the same SiriusXM channel as Little Steven,” said Rodney Bingenheimer. “He has also championed some of the greatest music of our time, both past and future. With both of us now at the same channel we’re gonna keep great music alive. Especially for me, being on at an earlier time, I can have more listeners who don’t have to worry about missing work or school the next day. To be on in Primetime on the East Coast as well is also exciting.”
“Rodney was one of my first calls when I started the channel,” said Steven Van Zandt. “We are honoured to have him. This is where he belongs!”
Rodney Bingenheimer’s SiriusXM show will premiere on Sunday, July, 16 at 9:00 pm ET, 6:00 pm PT, on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage, via satellite on channel 21 and through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.ca.
