XM Satellite Radio Headquarters Tour - June 25, 2004 - 10:30 am
XM Satellite Radio is the "cable TV" of radio. Its subscription service is heard by a new technology of consumer receivers now available in cars and individual radio sets. You can listen to the programs nationally - from the east/west/north and south without changing your station. It is the latest in radio technology. XM's headquarters is located in Washington, DC. They have a 2 billion dollar state of the art facility. Veteran announcer Bobby Bennett is the program director for the "Soul Street" channels. He hosted the tour and solicited interviews from some of the artists who were in attendance for a radio show commemorating the 70 years of the Apollo Theater. Above is a photo (courtesy of Clyde Frazier, Sr.) of the recording artists who were in attendance that day.
