Sarah Burke here from SiriusXM Canada.

I’m so excited to launch a new weekly show on SiriusXM Channel #359, North Americana.  I’ll be your host for Sunday Service.  We will gather every Sunday in the name of Americana Music, to both worship our founders, and preach about new artists that you need to know. Every Sunday, I’ll catch you up on new Americana releases from the founders of folk, introduce you to emerging roots artists, and feature exclusive studio interviews & performances. It’s a look at the week that was in Americana music, and Sunday IS the day of rest, so let me provide the soundtrack.

Sunday, December 16th – Buffalo Sabres at Boston Bruins
5:00 PM Eastern – SiriusXM 219

These two clubs have a rivalry dating back decades, and now that the Sabres are once again a factor in the Eastern Conference, it&rsqu

For some reason, Aretha Franklin's death was the hardest hitting. She was not only the Queen of Soul she was an American institution. While doing some reading on her, I discovered there was also once a "King of Soul," Sam Cooke.Cooke died tragically on December 11, 1964, at the age of 33.
