But Norton is beginning to become a bit of a radio brand; he recently began hosting The Jim Norton Show on Sirius XM. And today, he premiered a new music show on the satellite provider: Jim Norton–Obsessed on the Boneyard. The show will feature the hard classic rock characteristic of The Boneyard channel (Sirius channel 19; XM channel 53), which will focus on one theme each week.

Today’s theme was “first songs” from various hard rock albums. Upcoming shows will include “Songs I Play When I Want my Girlfriend to Leave the Room,” “Favorite Title Tracks from Albums,” and “Favorite Cover Songs.” All are promised to feature songs from rock giants Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, and Metallica.

You can hear Norton’s show every Wednesday at 11 am EST; rebroadcasts happen on Fridays at 9 pm and Sundays at 9 pm. Go here and here for more info.
