"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 12:00 pm ET. The special will be hosted by Jim Ladd, the legendary free-form DJ who hosts SiriusXM's Jim Ladd Show weekdays on Deep Tracks.
The event is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, intimate gatherings with iconic musicians and studio audiences of SiriusXM listeners. Previous "SiriusXM Town Hall" specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay, Ringo Starr, Renee Fleming, Gregg Allman, Usher, Ronnie Dunn and the surviving members of Nirvana.
Hosted by Jim Ladd, who has been conducting interviews with Pink Floyd since their first visit to the United States in 1979, 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 Waters.
"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. "And who better to lead the Town Hall than our Jim Ladd, a DJ who has championed the free-form rock format that Pink Floyd is such a great part of and which SiriusXM continues to support today."
"The Pink Floyd Channel," curated and hosted by Jim Ladd, features vintage concerts, special interviews and the entire Pink Floyd catalog, including their classic albums in their entirety, recently remastered and released as part of the "Why Pink Floyd?" campaign (www.whypinkfloyd.com). "The Pink Floyd Channel" also features solo albums by Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and Syd Barrett, live concerts, rarities, demo versions of classic Pink Floyd songs and studio outtakes.
