Sirius XM broadcasted the 100th episode of “Nordic Rox”

NEW YORK – January 23, 2009 – SIRIUS XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that Per Gessle of the multi-platinum band Roxette and music journalist Sven Lindstrom will host a two-part special celebrating the 100th episode of Nordic Rox, SIRIUS XM’s exclusive Scandinavian music show.

The best thing, however, is to put these shows together. To dig out thatspecial track we just know is happening and demands a bigger audience than just the tiny local radio station in the north of Sweden. That, to me, is what it’s all about.”

The two-part special will spotlight the 50 best Swedish songs of all time. In addition, broadcast highlights will include Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist of The Hives and rising Swedish rock star Lisa Miskovsky as well as archival interviews featuring several of the recording artists from the list.
