Walter Becker the DJ on Sirius Radio this weekend!

Donald Fagen did three shows on Sirius Satellite Radio in February this year, and now it's time for Walter Becker to do the same.

It was announced on a couple of weeks ago:
Becker DJs on Sirius Radio in Coming Weeks
Pure Jazz | Classic Vinyl | The Vault | Super Shuffle |
Radio Margaratiaville | Totally '70s
And now we have the first dates and first channel. Here's what's currently on Super Shuffle's page:

Celebrity Shuffle: Walter Becker
Tomorrow 6:00 am ET
Steely Dan’s Walter Becker is dropping by our SIRIUS studios to discuss songs off his recent solo album Circus Money. Don’t miss it when Walter Becker hosts Celebrity Shuffle!

Rebroadcast: Fri., June 20th @ 1 pm & 8 pm ET; Sat., June 21st @ 12 am, 10 am & 5 pm ET; Sun., June 22nd @ 3 am, 2 pm & 11 pm ET.

"Tomorrow" above meaning Friday June 20. You can sign up for a free three day trial and hear it online. Just like when Donald was guest-DJ:ing we'll try to catch the show and report back what was being played and said.

UPDATE June 20:
OK. So I've missed the first two airings of this show ... but am getting ready to catch the third in a couple of hours. While I haven't heard a single second of the show I did manage to find a playlist that I think is complete. If so; here's what Walter played!

The Band The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
Bob Marley & The Wailers I Shot The Sheriff
Parliament P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)
Rickie Lee Jones We Belong Together
Warren Zevon Boom Boom Mancini
Eddie Money Baby Hold On
Bob Dylan Isis
Elvis Costello Watching The Detectives
David Bowie Ashes to Ashes
Spinners Love Don't Love Nobody
Walter Becker Door Number Two

Some expected names and a couple of surprises. It will be interesting to hear what Walter has to say about ... Eddie Money.
Expect another update Saturday. And let's end this one with those swinging guys and gals ready to save us all with some uncut funk!
