After more than 30 years in the business you tend to have quite a library of audio. I’m uploading as fast as I can so stay tuned as more and more appears on the site.

GRAMMY Audio


At XM Satellite Radio we became the official satellite radio partner of the Recording Academy in 2006. As such we broadcast hundreds of hours of GRAMMY events – especially during GRAMMY week each year in Los Angeles.

In 2007, we became the first to ever broadcast the GRAMMY Pre-Tel Awards Ceremony

49th GRAMMY Pre-Tel Awards Ceremony Hour One February 11, 2007


We were able to broadcast events that not only had never been broadcast before, but events that most people (even in the industry) had never even heard of. Some of these, like the salute to Jazz, featured some of the most stories recording artists of our time.

The Pre-Tel Awards While the big thing during GRAMMY week is the actual televised GRAMMY Awards ceremony, more than 100 GRAMMYs are handed out in a ceremony that takes place just prior to the television broadcast – hence the name “Pre-Tels” or pre television. XM was the first organization ever to broadcast this event.

2008 Winner’s Tour For the 50th Annual GRAMMYs we had a contest for XM listeners and an XM employee to attend the GRAMMYs and get backstage access. One of the things we did for the winners was take them on a tour of the Staples Center and LA Convention Center to see what what was happening days before the actual ceremony.
