Sirius XM Radio announced that it will launch "Muppet Radio," a five-day limited run Thanksgiving week channel hosted by Kermit the Frog featuring new and classic Muppet music and an array of Muppets interacting with hosts from SiriusXM’s talk/entertainment, music and sports channels.

"Muppet Radio" will launch November 23 at 12:01 am ET and air through November 28 at 3:00 am ET on SiriusXM channel 145, online on SiriusXM Internet Radio channel 813 and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and mobile devices on Limited Engagements 3.

"Muppet Radio" will feature music from the new movie Disney’s "The Muppets," as well as holiday favorites from Kermit and company and classics from the Muppet archives.

The wide variety of Muppet appearances/interviews on the channel includes: Gonzo performing a rap tribute to Eminem on his Shade45 uncensored hip-hop channel; The Swedish Chef swapping recipes with OutQ’s Frank DeCaro; Kermit, Miss Piggy and Pepe the Prawn talking about life as a Muppet and growing up green with Mindy on Kids Place Live; Fozzie Bear playing a trivia game with the SiriusXM Hits1 Morning Mash Up crew; Gonzo discussing his driving technique on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio; Electric Mayhem front man Dr. Teeth and Animal musing on music they love on country channel The Highway; Statler and Waldorf -- aka the two old guys from the balcony -- pontificating on the art of heckling with Raw Dog Comedy’s Mark Says Hi; Kermit and Miss Piggy professing their love for show tunes on SiriusXM’s On Broadway; Kermit and Sam Eagle talking politics with political host Joe "The Black Eagle" Madison and Miss Piggy giving Molly and Christine, aka "The Broads," the real scoop on her relationship with Kermit.

"Muppet Radio" also features interviews with Disney’s The Muppets star/screenwriter/executive producer Jason Segel, the film’s director James Bobin and screenwriter/executive producer Nicholas Stoller. Gonzo and Fozzie will host a Muppets’ "The Green Album" special featuring covers of classic Muppet songs including "The Muppet Show Theme Song" performed by OK Go, "Rainbow Connection" performed by Weezer and Hayley Williams and My Morning Jacket’s rendition of "Our World."

"Having the Muppets take over at SiriusXM was amazing! Lots of rocking, rolling, talking, laughing…and, of course, we spilled a lot of wet sticky stuff in the control room," said Kermit the Frog. "Folks are gonna hear us in a whole new way…and we’d really love to do it again, just as soon as they repair the studio."

"The Muppets have been a wonderful part of so many of our listeners’ lives over the years, an iconic brand and truly unique entertainers," said Jeremy Coleman, SiriusXM’s Senior Vice President, Talk & Entertainment Programming, "It’s a pleasure to launch ‘Muppet Radio’ to bring back those memories and get a fresh taste, as we found when the Muppets ran from studio to studio interacting with our hosts."
