Bob Marley, Queen, Coldplay and more get their own SiriusXM radio stations

Beastie Boys, Queen, and Bob Marley will each be the focus of their own limited-run channels on SiriusXM, which will also bring back a Prince channel dedicated to the “Purple Rain” singer.

Michael Jackson and Coldplay will receive weeklong tribute channels starting Wednesday, July 15th, the satellite-radio service announced Wednesday.

The Beastie Boys channel launched earlier this week, and will run until Wednesday until July 21, featuring “classic bangers, deep cuts, rarities, and live recordings” and a series of guest Pass the Mic DJ sets from high profile fans of the rap icons.

Coldplay Radio, meanwhile, began broadcasting on Wednesday (July 14), running through until July 21.

The station will air a different ‘Live in Technicolor’ concert performance every night at 8pm ET, while the band themselves will each host episodes of Songs That Made Us Who We Are, running through their biggest influences. Guest DJs including Beck and Dua Lipa will choose their favourite Coldplay songs.
