Billy Joel lands own satellite radio show

Legendary rocker BILLY JOEL is preparing to turn radio DJ for three months after landing his own satellite channel.

The Piano Man icon will share his favorite tracks with listeners on SiriusXM from next Wednesday (26Mar14), but he admits he has "no idea" what else he will be doing on the show.

He says, "There's gonna be a Billy Joel channel... They wanted me to have a channel... I said, 'OK', (but) now what am I gonna do?

"I guess they want me to program some music that I like to listen to and talk about what we like to listen to on the road, or what we do. I don't know. I guess I'm gonna wing it."

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne have also previously hosted their own SiriusXM shows.
