SiriusXM announced today that Kelly Ogden, American musician and vocalist best known for her work in the band The Dollyrots, will launch a daily SiriusXM show on October 14 on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage (ch. 21).
Ogden will bring listeners into her world by playing music from some of her favorite rock ‘n’ roll girl groups to punk rock, while also sharing her own tour stories and thoughts during the four-hour show.
“As the amount of users of the SiriusXM App increases, which allows our station to be heard by American travelers worldwide, we have decided that there are no longer any ‘off hours,’ and are going full 24/7 with DJs,” says Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, artist, producer, performer and founder of SiriusXM’s Underground Garage channel 21, Little Steven Van Zandt. “To serve our final DJ slot we have chosen Kelly Ogden, who fits perfectly on our DJ team. She has a positive vibe, is a great conversationalist, comes with first hand stories of being on the road in a rock band, and a vast knowledge of garage-rock history, which is particularly impressive given her young age. Kelly is already part of our family, so we welcome her enthusiastically in this new role.”
In addition to fronting The Dollyrots, Ogden has also appeared in or shared her voice in TV and film, including ABC’s Schooled, CSI: NY, Greek, Disney’s Brave, Easy A, The Price Is Right and Girl Trash: All Night Long. She also shares a side-project with Bowling For Soup front-man Jaret Reddick called Jaret and Kelly. The Dollyrots, an outfit that was formed with her now husband Luis Cabezas, when they were in college, have had great success with their last four releases hitting the Billboard charts. Ogden and Cabezas’ two small children even participate in the band. Their brand-new album Daydream Explosion, which was released on Little Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records, debuted on Billboard’s Heatseekers, Independent Albums and Top Album charts.
“After rocking out and telling stories on stage with my band, The Dollyrots, for nearly 20 years, I’m so excited to be on the radio doing my favorite thing—hanging out with music fans and playing rock ‘n’ roll!” says Ogden. “I cannot wait to share my mornings with listeners of Underground Garage, it’s going to be a blast whether you’re an early bird or just getting home from that all-night party!”
Kelly Ogden will be on the air weekdays beginning October 14 from 4am ET to 8am ET on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage (ch. 21). Subscribers will be able to listen on SiriusXM radios, and those with streaming access can listen online, on-the-go with the SiriusXM mobile app and at home on a wide variety of connected devices including smart TVs, Amazon Alexa devices, Apple TV, PlayStation, Roku, Sonos speakers and more.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. I travel between the US and UK seeking my dream! My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
