SiriusXM announced Wednesday the launch of exclusive programming in celebration of the Valentine's Day weekend- including pop-up channels, listener requests, special guest DJs, love songs and not-so-romantic stories - beginning Friday, February 14 at 6:00 am ET.

"Romance Radio," a limited-run channel drawing on the special talents and chemistry of SiriusXM personalities, will feature a "Valentine's Playlist" with hosts sharing their favorite (and sometimes unexpected) love songs including selections by OutQ's Lance Bass and Larry Flick, SiriusXM Patriot's Andrew Wilkow, Indie's Covino and Rich and Jay Thomas, and hosts from SiriusXM's forthcoming Business Radio Powered by The Wharton School channel.  Indie's Pete Dominick and Stars' Taylor Strecker team up for a blind-date-of-sorts to figure out the true meaning of Valentine's Day and "Military Valentines" will feature audio love notes from our men and women stationed abroad.
