SPECIAL TRIBUTES TO RAY CHARLES THIS WEEKEND ON SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO

NEW YORK (June 11, 2004) -
SIRIUS, the premium satellite radio provider known for delivering the very best in commercial-free music and sports programming to cars and homes across the country, will present several special tributes to the legendary Ray Charles, who died on Thursday, June 10th.

The music and life of "The Genius," as he was justifiably known, will be the focus of these special weekend programs on SIRIUS Satellite Radio:

FRIDAY, JUNE 11 & MONDAY, JUNE 14 // NPR NOW & NPR TALK
"Fresh Air" on NPR NOW // 106 remembers Ray Charles with a 1988 interview with him conducted by host Terry Gross on Friday, June 11 at 2 pm and 8 pm ET, repeated on Monday, June 14 at 6 and 8 am ET. The program will also air on NPR TALK // 107 at 7 and 9 am ET.

JUNE 11-13 // STANDARD TIME
All weekend, SIRIUS commercial-free music channel STANDARD TIME // 75 pays tribute to Ray Charles by playing his many memorable hits as well as unforgettable performances culled from his almost six-decade career.

JUNE 11-13 // SOUL REVUE
All weekend, SIRIUS commercial-free music channel SOUL REVUE // 53 features Ray Charles music and remembrances, and presents a one-hour special, "Ray Charles: The Soul Years" on Sunday, June 13 at 9 pm ET.

JUNE 12 // PURE JAZZ
"Ray Charles: Genius + Soul = Jazz" features highlights from his vast jazz repertoire, including the sounds of Ray on piano, organ and saxophone, on commercial-free music channel PURE JAZZ // 72 throughout the day on Saturday, June 12.

Because Ray Charles' music encompassed several genres, SIRIUS commercial-free music channels which will also feature his music throughout the weekend include:

SIRIUS GOLD // 5

SIRIUS BLUES // 29

THE ROADHOUSE // 35

SIRIUS DISORDER // 24
