New overnight Jock on Sirius Hits One
He is not really new, but Mikey Piff, who has been on the SH1 morning mess, he did (or voice tracking) the over night shift last week? He has not been added to the sirius web page, but I was told that Sirius has a goal to have a jock on 24/7 on Hits one. Will it be Mr. Piff? .. He is using a little catch phrase.. "It's Mikey Piff on the overnight satellite", How cute... Sirius Hits one had been jock-less overnight for a little under a year now. (he has not been on the air this week)

Starting soon, Martha will join some of here old Mtv buddies on Srius 8 "The Big 80's" The darling of MTV, Martha Quinn, was cute, with a girl-next-door look and exploding with enthusiasm.

Martha was the originator of "music news" on MTV.
She was born on 5/11/59 in Albany, New York and studied at Colgate University and New York University and received a BA in Broadcasting. While in college, she hosted three different radio shows and interned at WNBC radio. During her stint as an MTV VJ from 1981 - 1986, she also hosted a rhythm & blues show on WNYR in New York City.

Sirius oldies stations getting some new sounds..

(Sirius Gold Jingle)
Sources at Sirius tell me that Cousin Brucie will be on Sirius 6 (60's) Wednesdays and Saturdays nights. Brucie will host a Thursday talk show, no word as of yet on what channel.

Norman N. Nite will Broadcast RocknRoll Hall of Fame Sirius 5 (Gold), changing to Wed- Sun.

Brucie and Norman (both ex-WCBS FM'ers) are not a fan of not having callers and request live on the Air, so I'm told that sirius will let them be able to take LIVE calls on the music show, along with Brucies talk show. Also look for some changes on how both oldies station sound music wise, it looks like Brucie will have input on music programing for the oldies stations.

"Radio Chick" Leslie Gold, Gains Satellite Following
The Associated Press gave the Radio Chick some good PR in this story. REBECCA MILLER, Associated Press Writer, tells us that "The Radiochick Show" on Sirius Satellite Radio frequently invites female guests to strip in the studio and leads such segments as "20 Questions with a Hooker" and "Wheel of Wifebeaters." You can listen to the chick weekdays 10a-2p est on Talk Centeral 148. My source at Sirius tells me that the "Radio Chick" show is growing, and they are looking at marketing her, in the NYC area. Her show when it was on FM had a big following, and many people have pick Sirius, because of Leslie. Sirius knows that there are a good deal of chick fans that have no clue she is on Sirius.. So look for some ads to pop up in the NYC area..

New sirius gear

Tuesday, July 19, 2005

New SIRIUS radio gear for that caught my eye this week -

SIRIUS SR-H550 - a SIRIUS component receiver for your home stereo system.

SIRIUS DBS Combiner/Splitter - this is cool, allows you to mount the SIRIUS Outdoor Home Antenna on your roof without stringing any additional cable *IF* you have satellite TV already installed on your roof. You hook one end of your existing cable run into the combiner, along with the satellite tv dish and the sirius antenna, then inside your house you use the splitter to break out the signals apart again.
