SiriusXM Canada announced today it will host The Tragically Hip Town Hall, featuring Rob Baker, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gord Sinclair. The live discussion and interview with the band will air on June 30 at 7pm ET on SiriusXM Canada, the Hip’s Facebook page, and The Tragically Hip Radio on SiriusXM Canada channel 757.
The broadcast will later be available on demand on The Tragically Hip Radio, available to subscribers with SiriusXM Streaming. The channel will also be taking over SiriusXM’s ch. 173 from July 1st through to the 5th.
On the special Town Hall, Baker, Fay, Langlois and Sinclair will be chatting live from their homes with SiriusXM’s Jeff Leake to reminisce about the band’s long history, past Canada Day shows, and what each are currently working on, including Baker’s new weekly show “Front of the Bus” on The Tragically Hip Radio.
“The Tragically Hip Radio showcases curated music from across the band’s vast catalogue, including live recordings from the band’s personal vault; archived interviews and track-by-track sit downs,” states a SiriusXm release. “Throughout the takeover, the dedicated channel will feature never-been-aired live recordings from New York’s legendary CBGB, Gino’s in Stockholm and Parkpop in The Hague, Holland.”
