On the hunt for a new show honoring Duran Duran‘s storied, four-decade career? SiriusXM VOLUME (Ch. 106) is joining forces with the Duran’s frontman, Simon Le Bon, for all-new episodes of his weekly podcast, WHOOOSH!, delving into the music, career, and influence of the iconic, global super band whose work now spans four decades.Beginning on January 27 at 9pm ET, Le Bon will host WHOOOSH! exclusively on VOLUME. WHOOOSH! is a weekly music show featuring Le Bon chatting and playing some of his favorite records, including new discoveries. Le Bon is joined by Duran insider and band associate Katy Krassner as they discuss their latest song obsessions and new music that excites them. WHOOOSH! first debuted on Duran Duran’s website in 2020, and now moves exclusively to SiriusXM with new programs in 2021 airing on the VOLUME channel and as a new podcast.
“It all began as a lockdown thing,” Simon Le Bon said. “It dawned on me that the only music I was listening to was what I was working on, and the stuff that got me into a band in the first place. So I switched on my ears, and went on a trip down a sonic rabbit hole. What a revelation — there is so much great new talent, so much music out there. Katy is the foil that makes it all work; and so a radio show is born. WHOOOSH! — it’s the sound of your mind expanding to take on a new idea.”
