Ozzy Osbourne Gets His Own Radio Station

Since satellite radio launched, it’s provided an opportunity for a number of well-known recording artists to turn DJ, hosting their own stations with a mix of personal stories and their favorite songs — including Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam, Eminem, and Willie Nelson.

Now you can add Ozzy Osbourne to the list: the heavy metal legend has partnered with SiriusXM to create his own channel, called Ozzy’s Boneyard. According to a press release announcing the deal, the station is set to launch later this year and will feature “classic hard rock and metal music from artists like Black Sabbath, Metallica, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Pantera and Van Halen.”

Ozzy sounds excited about the deal — he’s quoted in the press release as saying “After everything I’ve been through in my career I never imagined I’d end up with my own radio channel on SiriusXM. This is f*****g amazing! Does this mean I can play whatever I want?”

SiriusXM President Scott Greenstein offered a slightly more sedate statement, saying “No one represents the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal more than Ozzy. We know Ozzy’s Boneyard will be alive and kicking.”

As if that weren’t enough excitement, the SiriusXM announcement comes on the heels of news that Ozzy has reunited with his bandmates in Black Sabbath for a new album and world tour in 2012. No question about it, it’s a pretty great time to be a fan of the Prince of Darkness right now.
