SiriusXM will pay tribute to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell with an evening of special programming Friday night.
The Cornell tribute will begin at 5 p.m. ET on Howard 101 with a Sternthology — the daily show collecting memorable moments from the Stern’s broadcasting history — devoted to the singer’s appearances on Stern’s show. It’ll continue at 11 p.m. ET with a rebroadcast of a 2014 concert commemorating the 20th anniversary of Soundgarden’s Superunknown that took place at Manhattan’s Webster Hall and was presented by Stern.
Stern had a well-known love of Cornell, first mentioning him on-air back in 1994, according to a timeline on Stern’s website. Cornell appeared multiple times on the show beginning in 2007, including once in 2011 when he performed a tender, acoustic version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
