Talent manager extraordinaire and music industry power player Irving Azoff, CEO of Azoff MSG Entertainment, has signed on as the host of a new show on SiriusXM’s Volume channel that promises to present “Irving being Irving – passionate, opinionated and questioning.”

“Unmanageable” will feature conversations with some of the most influential people in the music business with topics including ticket prices, technology, artists’ rights, concert safety and the current state of live and recorded music.

The show debuts April 4 at 7 p.m. EST on the Volume channel 106 with special guests Jon Bon Jovi, director Judd Apatow and CAA’s Head of Music Rob Light. 

Jon Bon Jovi is just one of Azoff’s many management clients. With a long list of other major acts, such as Eagles, Steely Dan, and John Mayer, and potential special guests on the new show, “Unmanageable” guarantees plenty of insightful entertainment. 

“Irving Azoff is one of the most revered names in the music business and the possibility of doing an unscripted, free-form show with him for our subscribers was irresistible,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “Unmanageable will be Irving being Irving – passionate, opinionated and questioning. Listeners will get a front-row seat as Irving and friends talk about music today, as it pertains to the industry and to the average fan and listener. This is a show that was made for our SiriusXM Volume channel, the only fulltime talk channel on radio devoted to talking – and arguing – about music.”

“I agree with everything Scott said,” commented Azoff. “I am a big fan of SiriusXM. Jon, Judd, Rob and I had a great time and the conversation was so natural that we forgot we were being recorded. We ended up with an unscripted conversation that delved into a lot of issues — I am sure listeners will enjoy this ‘behind the curtain’ show.”

Tune in to the Volume channel – talk-radio “that is all about the world of music and its fans” – for new episodes from “Unmanageable” throughout spring the summer.

Full disclosure: Irving Azoff is one of the founders of Oak View Group, Pollstar’s parent company.
