Sounds of Summer: All the music you’ll ever need for Memorial Day Weekend

May 22, 2014

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! What’chu got planned for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday? Maybe a little early beach trip? (Careful, the water’s gonna be COLD.) Maybe a BBQ? Maybe a day on the couch clutching your iPad while everyone else is off to the beach? (Er, sorry, we’re projecting).

Well, no matter what you have planned this holiday weekend, SiriusXM has a vast array of musical options to play in the background (or the foreground if you pride yourself on being an active listener). Yep, this weekend, we’ve got everything from an Artist Confidential with the one and only Blondie on 1st Wave to Sarah McLachlan’s Five Songs of Summer on The Blend to Roger Daltrey on Bluesville.
