LOS ANGELES — In advance of his performance of “The Wall” on Saturday at the Los Angeles Coliseum, British rocker Roger Waters stopped in on veteran rock deejay Jim Ladd’s nightly show on Sirius XM on Thursday to announce the launch of a Pink Floyd channel. The new channel is slated to launch May 29 on the satellite network.

The channel will carry Pink Floyd concerts, interviews, rarities and will air the group’s full recorded catalog.

“I can’t think of a better home for the Pink Floyd catalogue, and all the solo stuff, than SiriusXM,” Waters said in a statement. “How cool for all our fans and what a great way to introduce the work to new generations of listeners.”

The channel will run May 25-28 on Sirius XM channel 27, and return June 29 to July 8 on Sirius Channel 142 and XM channel 43. It will be available online full-time on channel 802 and for an extended period for smartphones and mobile devices on the Sirius XM Internet Radio App.

Ladd is a longtime advocate of Pink Floyd and was recruited by Waters as the narrator for his 1987 concept album “Radio K.A.O.S.”
