Lance Bass, formerly of the pop phenomenon of the late '90s and early 2000s known as *NSYNC, has a new job that keeps him busy and on the airwaves. Dirty Pop Live with Lance Bass airs on OUTQ 106 on Sirius XM Radio Monday through Friday at 6 p.m. EST/ 3 p.m. PST. The radio show itself is re-aired on OutQ 106 at 11 p.m. EST and Sirius XM Stars 106 late night.
The greeting of “Hello my little peanuts” comes from Lance himself, the conversation coming from the usual co-hosts including Drew Pokorny and Andy Ruther, as well as Bass' husband Michael Turchin. There are a host of guests, both musical and those who come to guest host that get a chance to give their opinion on a variety of topics, some that go wildly off subject. When Lance isn't available at the helm, other hosts step in like Jai Rodriguez Ross Matthews, Fortune Feimster, Melissa Peterman and, most recently, Khloe Kardashian. Past guests include: Jeff Zorilla and Paul Katami (Prop 8 Plaintiffs), Aaron Carter, Walter O Brian, Heather McDonald, Kathy Griffin, Pauley Shore, T-Boz from TLC, Ty Herndon, Christina Millian and even fellow *NSYNC alum Joey Fatone.
Subjects range from politics and serious matters to pop culture and current news stories, including stories that happen over the weekend. Weekly segments on Dirty Pop Live include: #NewMusicParty Tuesday that plays a sample of just released songs, Wednesdays are a weekly advice segment with Kim Gravel where people can call in or email questions. On Friday there is a play list of 5 songs that the hosts can't get enough of, and weekends are “Best of Dirty Pop Live.” As well as doing the show from Lance's studio and locations in Los Angeles, the show also goes on the road to the Desert Smash Charity Tennis Event, Elevation Gay Ski in Mammoth and Elevation Gay Ski in Utah.
Lance uses an app called Periscope to give listeners a chance to see what is going on in the studio also known affectionately as the “Bastle in the Sky.” Callers can win prizes from contests on the show, as well as call in to the Dirty Pop Hotline to leave a message for Bass and any of the co-hosts or guests. Another reason that Dirty Pop Live is so popular is due to the heavy use of Twitter on the @DirtyPopLive account as well as Lance's own account (@LanceBass) to give the followers the latest on guests and subject matter for the show.
