Sirius Satellite Radio has just announced that banjo player Ned Luberecki has assumed full-time host duties on the Sirius Bluegrass channel 65. Previously Ned hosted weekends only, but he can now be heard from 6 am to 12pm ET weekdays in addition to his weekend show from 3 pm to 9pm. Luberecki’s programs are produced at Sirius’ Nashville, TN studios.
Luberecki said, “I’ve been involved in Bluegrass music for close to 30 years now and have always been a radio junkie. Hosting the morning show on the Bluegrass channel for SIRIUS is a dream come true!”
In addition to his SIRIUS radio programs, the Nashville resident is currently the banjoist for Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, and teaches private lessons at World Music Nashville and the Gibson Bluegrass Showcase.
