UPDATE - 1/10@4:28PM: This is happening right now on Sirius XM's 80s on 8 (thanks Andrew).

UPDATE - 1/9@10:59AM: John at has posted a CORRECTION regarding this news; apparently Geddy will be the guest DJ on Sirius XM's 80s on 8 station rather than Classic Rewind as originally reported.

Sirius XM's Classic Rewind announced earlier this morning that Geddy Lee will be a guest DJ on the station this coming Thursday, January 10th at 3PM EST (thanks John at Classic Rewind focuses on classic rock music from the '70s and '80s, and can be heard on channel 25 on Sirius XM Radio or on Dish Network channel 6025. DJ Kristine Stone normally operates the 11AM-5PM time slot where Geddy will be guesting, and is a well-known Rush fan; her promo spots include Limelight playing in the background with Kristine's tagline of "...and then there's happy place..." Now that the Holidays are over, it looks like Geddy is picking up where he left off a couple of weeks ago, and continuing his PR blitz for his recently-released Big Beautiful Book of Bass. Geddy is expected to announce more book signing events this week, so perhaps he'll be doing that on Thursday if not sooner.
