Everyone knows Tom Petty, the singer-songwriter. But if you listen to SiriusXM, you also know Tom Petty, the music historian and cultural commentator. To celebrate Petty’s birthday on Oct. 20, Tom Petty Radio (Ch. 31) will air the first of the “Final Three” new episodes of Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure, which were recorded before his death but never aired.

Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure, which began in December 2004, was a weekly program where Petty pulled together a set of the best in rock, rhythm and blues from his private vaults, creating an hour of radio woven together with his informed, passionate and entertaining commentary.
