XM’s Greatest Hits during IBMA week

Studio Special, XM Satellite Radio’s weekly program of live performance and interviews with bluegrass artists, has a mix of their most popular shows set to run during IBMA week.

Instead of one new show, airing multiple times over the course of a week, the shows starting tomorrow (9/22) will feature a different encore program each time the show airs through September 29.

Here is a breakdown of IBMA week episodes of Studio Special:

FRI, September 22 at 8:00 a.m. – Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver
SAT, September 23 at 11:00 a.m. – Rhonda Vincent
SUN, September 24 at 6:00 p.m. – Steep Canyon Rangers
MON, September 25 at 8:00 p.m. – Mountain Heart
TUE, September 26 at Midnight (technically Wednesday morning) – Cherryholmes
THU September 28 at 3:00 p.m. – Blue Moon Rising
FRI, September 29 at 8:00 a.m. – Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder (new show)

Times above are Eastern.

All of these shows will include live (in studio) performances, and interviews with XM’s Bluegrass Junction host Kyle Cantrell, and can be found on XM Channel 14.

On Wednesday (9/27) they will run an encore of the 2005 IBMA Awards Show at 6:00 p.m., and will have coverage of the 2006 Awards from The Grand Ole Opry House on Thursday evening (9/29) starting at 9:00 p.m.

UPDATE 6:00 p.m.: The Ricky Skaggs show on 9/29 is not an encore, but a new show that will debut that day, and run through the following week.
