Satellite radio will highlight George Carlin

June 20, 2011 - 11:14 AM

NEW YORK (AP) — The late George Carlin's comedy will come alive again this weekend.

Sirius XM Radio Inc. said Monday it will air a special channel devoted to Carlin's comedy this weekend. Carlin died three years ago, on June 22, 2008, at age 71. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the making of his album "FM & AM."

The channel will air several of Carlin's routines, including the classic "Seven Words You Can Never Say on TV." Because it is a subscription-based satellite radio channel, Sirius has no problem playing the profanity-laced routine.

"George Carlin Radio" will also include interviews with the comic's daughter, brother and business partner.
