Q & A with XM's Bill Wax: Getting in on the Ground Floor Bill Wax & P.W. FentonProgram Director Bill Wax may have gotten in on the ground floor, but in this case the ground floor is located about 22,241 miles above our heads.Bill works for XM Satellite Radio.His programs get transmitted from XM's two satellites, lovingly named "Rock" and "Roll," to the entire North American continent.XM Radio is a subscription service.Public radio folks call that "listener support." I first met Bill Wax in Memphis, Tennessee in 2003 when we both accepted "Keeping the Blues Alive" awards from the Blues Foundation--me for my website, and Bill for XM's Blues-based advertising campaign featuring B.B. King. In an effort to learn more about this potential market for independent producers, I interviewed my friend (and fellow Blues lover) Bill Wax. P.W. Fenton: Bill, let me start by asking you how you started in radio? Bill Wax: I first started in radio in college as a freshman doing an oldies rock and R&B show in 1966.Wax: I have been program director for two community radio stations, KOPN in Columbia, Missouri from 1978 to 1982, and KBOO in Portland, Oregon from 1982 to 1985.Wax: I would say there are opportunities for independent producers to get their work on XM.Wax: I am not sure I can speak for the plans of the other formats, but in the next few years there should be more staff positions opening on each channel as we grow closer to profitability. Fenton: So tell me a little bit about your corner of XM Radio. Wax: Bluesville is a 24-7-365 nationwide Blues music channel.Wax: I usually tell folks I work half a day at XM.Wax: We are technically capable of having a program produced off site, but we have not yet moved to that model.Wax: I get paid a full-time salary for my work at XM.Wax: There is, at this point, some limited amount of funds for outside programming.Wax: As a former member I am always happy to be of service to AIR.

Tad Robinson's Blues Journal - Live from Bluesville XM

a special recording session at the world-class recording facility at XM Radio headquarters in Baltimore - for Bill Wax's Bluesville
We were invited to XM by Bill Wax, the host and program director of XM's blues programming. Bill runs a wonderfully eclectic blues show called Bluesville on XM, spinning about 400 blues songs a day. He told me that he currently has 12,900 songs in his rotation to choose from. Bill Wax is one of the most serious, knowledgeable and inspired DJ's on the scene anywhere in the world of blues; a true champion of blues music. The songs will be put into rotation on Bluesville for a while getting some serious airplay thanks to Bill Wax.
