Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI) launches The Schoolhouse Rockin’ Political Party, featuring legendary Schoolhouse Rock songster Bob Dorough helping young listeners understand and celebrate the electoral process and how the President of the United States is elected.
“Many of us grew up on Schoolhouse Rock and it’s a pleasure to welcome Bob to our national airwaves and share his great work with the latest generation of Americans and their parents. The Schoolhouse Rockin’ Political Party might just teach us all a few things about our political process as we prepare for this year’s historic Presidential election.”
– Jeremy Coleman, Senior Vice President of Talk and Entertainment Programming, SiriusXM
