NEW YORK, March 19, 2013

NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI)
announced today that it will launch "The Girls' Room," a limited-run channel
featuring music by all-girl bands, beginning Friday, March 22 at 3:00 pm ET on
SiriusXM channel 17.

"The Girls' Room" will feature music by all-female bands spanning the 50s,
60s, 70s, and 80s including music by The Shangri-Las, The Supremes, The
Go-Go's, Bananarama, The Angels, Martha & The Vandellas, The Dixie Cups, The
Bangles and The Chiffons as well as solo females who had the "Girl Group
sound."

The Girl Group genre has played a big part in the history of American pop
music beginning in the early 1960's, changing the history of rock & roll. 
From the street corner harmony of The Shirelles to the New Wave beat of the
The Go-Go's (the first all-girl band that both wrote their music and played
all the instruments); from the Motown soul of The Supremes to the disco hits
of Expose and the teen anthems of Lesley Gore, SiriusXM's "The Girls' Room"
will have it all.

"From the early days when all-female groups were seen as novelty acts, to the
more recent decades that has seen their remarkable influence cemented, girl
groups helped change the face of popular music and we want to cast a special
spotlight on their work," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content
Officer of SiriusXM.  "While we play music from women's groups across many of
our commercial-free music channels, Women's History Month is a great time to
recognize this music with a special channel that will take listeners into the
talent and depth of all-girl groups. The range of music will show the
influence their work has had on generations of listeners, regardless of
gender."   

"The Girls' Room" airs beginning Friday, March 22 at 3:00 pm ET and will run
through Monday, March 25 at 3:00 am ET on SiriusXM channel 17.
