Chris Rock and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, two great tastes who taste great together, are teaming up to launch a limited-run radio station. The Sirius XM channel, christened Red Hot Chili Peppers Radio, will launch June 15 and run through June 21 in anticipation of The Getaway’s release. Rock is set to host the station, which will feature music spanning the band’s career, as well as commentary and songs that they handpick. Rock is evidently a dedicated Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, having inducted the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. So, the gist: Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chris Rock will rock hard to rock music on the radio. Nice.
