XM and JALC Plan Collaboration

XM Satellite Radio and Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) recently announced their plans to collaborate in order to broadcast daily live programs from the Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City.

Starting in June, XM will move into JALC recording studios and will broadcast on a wide range of channels, such as Real Jazz and On Broadway. XM will also record and broadcast live concerts from the Frederick P. Rose Hall’s venues. The studios will also broadcast special features from XM’s news, public radio, sports, kids, talk, comedy and entertainment channels, though they will continue their talk radio shows originating in Manhattan. New episodes of the XM series “Artist Confidential” and “Then…Again…Live!” are also part of the new programming.

The partnership of XM and JALC will expand the satellite radio’s presence in New York City and will work to create, produce and promote new jazz programs. Though the radio station will broadcast from the studios at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the studios will also be open to the recording industry at large. XM also broadcasts at its main headquarters in Washington D.C. and in Nashville at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The XM music channels that will be broadcasted from JALC include the traditional jazz repertoire on Real Jazz (XM Channel 70); Frank’s Place (XM Channel 73), which plays standards performed by Frank Sinatra and other singers; On Broadway (XM Channel 28); the modern jazz channel Beyond Jazz (XM Channel 72); and the New Age music channel, Audio Visions (XM Channel 77).
