Theme Time Radio Hour To Expand

Feb 05, 2009

Sirius XM Radio Inc. are expanding Bob Dylan’s award-winning Theme Time Radio Hour show to open up multiple hours of uninterrupted listening on The Spectrum channel.

Starting on Sunday, February 8th, Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour will air on The Spectrum (Sirius channel 18 and XM channel 45) for four uninterrupted hours from 4-8pm ET.

The weekly four-hour additional programming will kick off with an encore of the new show that debuted on Deep Tracks (Sirius channel 16 and XM channel 40) that prior Wednesday.

The marathon will continue with two shows from the Theme Time Radio Hour vault as well as an additional encore of Wednesday’s show.

The Wall Street Journal’s Terry Teachout said it best about the show:
“To listen to ‘Theme Time Radio Hour’ is to rediscover the sense of musical adventure that old-fashioned disc jockeys with strongly individual personalities offered in the days before big-money stations pinned their fiscal hopes to the rigid Top 40-style playlists that took the fun out of radio.”

Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour will still air at its regularly schedule timeslot, every Wednesday at 11am ET on Deep Tracks.
