SiriusXM is launching a new channel dedicated comedy legend Lucille Ball. ‘Lucille Ball: Let’s Talk to Lucy’ is named after her 1960s CBS Radio show, featuring interviews with some of the biggest stars of the Hollywood Golden Era.
“Although I have been care-taking these ancient tapes for over thirty years, I had never really listened to them all and had no idea how many remarkable people Mom had talked to on these radio shows,” said Lucie Arnaz, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s daughter. “It’s a treasure trove of personal information from some of the greatest talents of American Entertainment and my family and I can’t wait to share them with the rest of the planet.”
“Few stars reach a level of worldwide fame that they need only be known by one name. Lucy is one such star,” said Jack Vaughn, SVP Comedy Programming. “Always a trailblazer, Lucy can arguably add ‘one of America’s first podcasters to her vast repertoire. Hearing her conversations with some of the world’s biggest names, full of her signature wit, charm, and intelligence, is truly a surreal experience, and I can’t wait for listeners to tune in.”
The premiere is set for Channel 104 on August 5.
