QUICK TAKES

Enjoy 'Breakfast' via satellite radio

September 09, 2008|Randy Lewis

"Breakfast With the Beatles," the long-running L.A. radio staple devoted to the music of the Fab Four, makes the jump to satellite radio starting this Sunday, when it premieres on Sirius XM Satellite Radio as part of Little Steven's Underground Garage lineup.

The show, broadcast in Los Angeles on KLOS-FM (95.5) and hosted by Chris Carter, will go out Sundays at 6 a.m. Pacific time on Sirius XM Channel 25, (with a repeat at 9 p.m.) while remaining in its 9 a.m. slot at KLOS. Each show will be different, Carter said Monday.

"It's an honor to have Chris on our channel," Underground Garage host "Little Steven" Van Zandt said in a statement issued Monday. "We already play more Beatles music than any other radio channel so it fits in perfectly."

Carter added: "The Beatles saved rock 'n' roll and Little Steven saved rock 'n' roll radio. I'm honored to bring the world's greatest band to the world's greatest station."

One reason the show had never been streamed or picked up by satellite radio previously is that digital radio stations are restricted from playing more than a few tracks from the same album or by the same artist within a three-hour period. A special waiver was required to allow "Breakfast With the Beatles" on satellite radio.
