“I’ve listened avidly to VOLUME since its premiere on SiriusXM and I’m beyond thrilled to be joining this awesome team,” said Zappa. “I look forward to sharing my unique point of view with all of the VOLUME listeners and hope their seat belts are fastened for the insanity that is Rocktails. Our show is all about having unfiltered conversations about my favorite thing to talk about — music — because music is the best.”
