live earth bulletIn a move that pretty much covers the bases for media on July 7th, XM Satellite Radio has announced plans to broadcast 27 hours of Live Earth concerts from over 100 artists. From the release,

“XM’s live coverage will begin at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, July 6, on XM’s main Live Earth channel, “Live Earth All Access” (XM channel 40). “Live Earth All Access” will feature around-the-clock coverage with highlights of the most memorable performances, backstage interviews and more, throughout the day.

    Mr. Gore should have also called Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel. This would like stir the young starlets into a hottie-off for the sake of the planet. If Edwards or Obama make it into office, then Al could head up the EPA and then use “ScarJo” as a kind of Nico to his Lou Reed.
