Tom Petty on SiriusXM

Tom Petty on SiriusXM

Tom Petty died last October, but his voice and music live on at SiriusXM.

For many years, Tom Petty hosted an hour long radio show on XM, and then on SiriusXM, in which he played old rock and roll and blues music from his personal collection. The name of Tom’s radio show was Buried Treasure, and it aired once each week on the Deep Tracks channel.

Now you can listen to Tom Petty on 2 different stations on SiriusXM.

You can try the Tom Petty Radio channel on which they play Tom’s entire catalog along with many live performances from his decades on the road. On this station, they also sprinkle in some episodes of Tom’s old Buried Treasure shows. Some members of Tom’s band, the Heartbreakers, host shows on this station now.

If you have the SiriusXM app, you also have access to the Buried Treasure channel which is dedicated to playing Tom’s old Buried Treasure shows non-stop, 24/7.

I listened to a lot of Tom Petty before and after his death, and it is still tough to believe he’s gone – possibly because I still hear him speaking often on SiriusXM.

Aside from being a great songwriter and being the front man for an excellent band, Tom was simply an interesting dude. There are, or were, a handful of very interesting, smart, and authentic classic rock guys that always seemed to have something to say when interviewed. I’d put Tom Petty in that class, along with Pete Townshend, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison.

If you haven’t already seen it, I recommend the documentary film about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers titled Running Down A Dream. It is available on Netflix. The film is almost 4 hours long, but it is worth every minute of your time.
