360 Minutes

This could be interesting...from a press release:

Dave Kendall, the creator and former host of MTV’s "120 minutes," will host "Party 360 with Dave Kendall" on SIRIUS’ First Wave channel. SIRIUS listeners will hear Dave play 360 minutes of alternative party songs every Friday night.

"Party 360 with Dave Kendall" will be broadcast on First Wave SIRIUS channel 22 each week on Friday nights at 6 pm ET.

Dave joins original MTV veejays Martha Quinn, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter and Nina Blackwood who also host shows on SIRIUS. Dave Kendall created, produced and hosted MTV's "120 Minutes" from 1986-1993. The show is credited with bringing artists like Midnight Oil, Sinead O'Connor and The Cure to a mainstream audience. After 120 Minutes, Dave went on to produce various music shows for radio and television and also volunteers for Rejoice Urban Development Foundation, an A.I.D.S. charity, in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

First Wave broadcasts the first wave of alternative music from the era that defined alternative. On the channel, SIRIUS listeners will hear The Clash, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Echo & the Bunnymen, Morrissey, New Order, The Police, Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones, REM, The Smiths, Squeeze, Tears For Fears, U2 and many others.

Unless the rest of the schedule has changed, this should lead nicely into "Party Out of Bounds with Fred Schneider" at 9pm ET.
