What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Drummer has Radio Gig"
SiriusXM is offering a glimpse into the Black Keys world as Patrick Carney debuts a new radio show. The drummer of the Grammy Award winners will host "Serious Boredom", a new free-form monthly show, on the satellite radio provider's SiriusXM channel. Carney kicks off the show on 12/20/12 with music he was into in HS. He hopes to have a specific theme for each show, but is free to present whatever material he wants. In January 2013 the show will air each first Thursday of the month and will center on labels and cities (as of now)...
