Today marks the one-year anniversary of Eminem’s Shade 45 channel on Sirius Satellite Radio, and the Rapper will be on the air to celebrate. The channel officially launched last October with a live concert broadcast of Em’s Shady National Convention in New York City. Now, Eminem will be on Shade 45 throughout the next several days to talk about the channel’s success over the past year, his forthcoming greatest hits album, Curtain Call, and other new projects that he has in the works. Fans can catch the Rapper along with host Lil Shawn during The All Out Show with co-hosts Rude Jude and Lord Sear from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST today. Eminem can also be heard with morning show co-hosts Cipha Sounds and Angela Yee on Friday, October 28 from 8 a.m. to noon, and on Saturday, October 29 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. during G-Unit Radio with host Whoo Kid.
“I can’t believe that Shade 45 has been on the air for a whole year, cursing until our hearts’ content and playing our favorite music,” jokes Eminem. “What a fucking accomplishment. Now everybody get back to work.”
Some of the highlights from Shade 45’s inaugural year were in-studio interviews with Donald Trump, Jay-Z, Jessica Alba, Kanye West and Tommy Lee, songs specifically written about Shade 45 by Eminem, 50 Cent, Common, Proof of D12 and others, the launch of House Arrest Radio, a weekly show hosted by G-Unit member Tony Yayo while he was under house arrest, and the world-premiere of 50 Cent’s The Massacre CD on Shade 45.
