    XM Radio's Huge Undertaking

    Beginning Friday Aug. 18 XM Radio is going to broadcast IT! The History of Pop Music:

    They are going to play virtually every song that has ever made an appearance on the Top 40 Pop charts. It will be a chronological countdown beginning in 1920 & continuing until the present day. 85 plus years of hits. From World War 1, through the Depression era, Big Band & Swing, World War 2, & Rock & Roll. Many of the songs have never been played on XM before. This should be a great showcase for Pop music & what XM has to offer.

    That sounds really cool! I have a new XM receiver sitting on my kitchen table right now. I think that announcement may lead me to call the friend who is supposed to hook it up and tell him it's time to get going!

    It will be on Channel 4 as they progress from 1920 through 1949 & then for the 50's it will move to channel 5, channel 6 for the 60's etc. etc. I'm really looking forward to this, it should be outstanding.

    I'll have to try to catch it once it starts on the 50s.

    The 50's are scheduled to begin Tues. morning at 6am EST. Right now they are into 1945. The interesting thing they have been doing is stopping the music for original radio news broadcasts of what was happening during the timeframe when the music was popular. They played the news of Victory over Europe, then followed that about an hr. later with the news of the Atomic bombs in Japan, then they had the news of unconditional surrender of Japan. They will also tell you what movies were popular, who wins Academy Awards, who wins the World Series etc. All in all pretty cool stuff.

    I would presume XMRADIO.COM would be the place to look. The series is called IT The History of Pop Music. Also, I just found out they are only going to continue until the end of 1999. So they won't be going past 12/31/99.
