XM Satellite Radio will broadcast live concerts from two New York clubs: the Blue Note and the B.B. King Blues Club. As part of a multi-year agreement, XM is airing a wide variety of shows from the venues on several of XM's commercial-free music channels. Concerts include performances by Chick Corea, Aaron Neville, Jimmy Cliff, and Alan Parsons.
"We're thrilled to be broadcasting live shows from the Blue Note and the B.B. King Blues Club, which are two of the greatest places to hear live music anywhere in the country," said Lee Abrams, chief programming officer for XM Satellite Radio. "This is part of XM's ongoing commitment to national broadcasts of live music. We're giving XM listeners a virtual front-row seat at these fantastic venues." –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
