“Big 4 Radio” and “Mandatory Metallica”


I meant to post about this last week, but Sirius has been promoting Big 4 Radio with the main bands being Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. I don’t know how long it’s going to be on for, I thought it was over yesterday, but it’s still on today and every time I turn to Sirius Internet radio channel 812, it’s still on and playing Metallica. Also, as of May 8th, it looks like they’ll be starting a Metallica music channel. I don’t know how long it’ll last, but I have to say, it’s about time they did something like that. I’d love to turn to a specific station, whenever I wanted and hear Metallica!


From Sirius:

Metallica Presents: Big 4 Radio


Now on Satellite Radio (Liquid Metal, Sirius Ch. 27 and XM Ch. 42) hear Metallica Presents: Big 4 Radio, a commercial-free music channel featuring the music of four of heavy metal’s biggest legends: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. The channel’s launch leads up to the long-awaited Big 4 Show, which will feature the four pioneering bands performing together for the first time in the United States, on April 23 in Indio, California. For more information, visit Metallica.com.

The limited-run channel will also feature highlights of archival interviews with various members of the four bands, as well as Metallica performances at previous Big 4 shows. SiriusXM listeners will also hear on-site reports from the Big 4 Show.

Metallica Presents: Big 4 Radio is available on SiriusXM Internet Radio (Sirius Ch. 812 & XM Ch. 90) as of April 16, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (Sirius Ch. 27 and XM Ch. 42).

On Sunday, May 8, SiriusXM will launch “Mandatory Metallica,” the 24/7 Metallica music channel, including music from the band’s entire catalog, rare cuts and songs from Metallica’s Big 4 concert performances. “Mandatory Metallica” will be available for an extended period on SiriusXM Bootlegs on SiriusXM Internet Radio, and through the SiriusXM App.
