John Mayer's SIRIUS XM show: A sneak peek

Posted on

Guitarist. Singer-songwriter. Occasional stand-up comedian. Very occasional wearer of a Borat-style mankini. Is there no end to John Mayer’s talents? Seemingly not. And this Wednesday at 6 p.m. EST you will be able to hear the pop-bluesman try his hand at the ol’ record-playing game in the course of a special guest DJ session on The Spectrum, SIRIUS channel 18 and XM channel 45.

The Music Mix can reveal that the platters which matter to Mr Mayer will include Billy Preston’s “That’s The Way God Planned It,” Bell X1’s “The Great Defector,” Death Cab For Cutie’s “Marching Bands of Manhattan,” Fleet Foxes’ “White Winter Hymnal,” Mayer Hawthorne’s “Strange Arrangement,” and “Tangled Up In Blue” by Bob Dylan. Mayer also performs on the show and you can hear a clip from the man’s soundcheck below during which he covers both Skid Row and Extreme

Check out the clip and tell us what you think. Did you buy Mayer’s recent, chart-topping, collection Battle Studies? Will you be checking out his SIRIUS show? What say you about his musical taste?
