Aretha, Monkees Sent Into Orbit Via XM Satellite

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Rhino Records, the label famed for its exhaustive
reissues and boxed sets, and XM Satellite Radio are teaming to produce a
wide range of exclusive music and pop-culture specials based on the Rhino
catalog.

The two companies are developing in-depth programs about Ray Charles, the
Monkees, the Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello, Aretha Franklin, Chicago and
Dwight Yoakam, among others.

“This is a way to bring attention to the Rhino catalog,” says David Dorn,
senior VP of new-media strategy for Rhino.

The programs — which will vary in length from 90 minutes to a few hours —
will be heard exclusively on various channels across XM. The specials will
feature extensive between-song programing including interviews and
historical press-kit materials.

Lee Abrams, chief programing officer for XM, says that almost all of its
music stations that are not focused on current catalog will air Rhino
specials.

XM is expected to air about 50 Rhino specials between now and year’s end.

Dorn says that roughly half of the specials produced for XM will be tied to
Rhino’s release schedule. However, he says that Rhino and XM will also be
looking to give new life to older boxed sets and collections that never got
exposure through terrestrial radio.

“Music discovery is music you haven’t heard before,” Dorn says, pointing
out that music does not have to be newly released to seem fresh to consumers.

Abrams agrees. He says that XM and Rhino have similar philosophies. “One of
our slogans internally is: We believe in careers, not just hits. This
allows us to open up artists’ catalogs.”

XM is looking to programing features like the Rhino specials as a selling
point for its service against terrestrial radio and rival satcaster Sirius.

The company, which offers 68 channels of commercial-free music, currently
claims a subscriber base of 2.1 million.
