'Unmanageable' to debut on April 4
NEW YORK, April 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that Irving Azoff, the renowned music dealmaker and talent manager to some of the biggest names in the record industry, will host a new show, Unmanageable, on SiriusXM's Volume channel.
On Unmanageable, Azoff, the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer of Azoff MSG Entertainment, will host conversations with some of the most influential people in the music business where they'll dive into music's past, present and future. From ticket prices to technology, artists' rights, concert safety and the current state of live and recorded music, Unmanageable will provide an in-depth look into the business of music. Unmanageable will debut on April 4 at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT on SiriusXM's Volume channel with special guests Jon Bon Jovi, Director Judd Apatow and CAA's Head of Music Rob Light.
"Irving Azoff is one of the most revered names in the music business and the possibility of doing an unscripted, free-form show with him for our subscribers was irresistible," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. "Unmanageable will be Irving being Irving—passionate, opinionated and questioning. Listeners will get a front-row seat as Irving and friends talk about music today, as it pertains to the industry and to the average fan and listener. This is a show that was made for our SiriusXM VOLUME channel, the only fulltime talk channel on radio devoted to talking—and arguing—about music."
"I agree with everything Scott said," commented Azoff. "I am a big fan of SiriusXM. Jon, Judd, Rob and I had a great time and the conversation was so natural that we forgot we were being recorded. We ended up with an unscripted conversation that delved into a lot of issues—I am sure listeners will enjoy this 'behind the curtain' show."
Unmanageable is the latest guest-curated program to be added to the Volume channel 106, home of talk-radio that is all about the world of music, and its fans. Azoff's new program, Unmanageable, will see new episodes debut throughout spring and summer.
