LOS ANGELES, CA (July 31, 2009) - The virtual airwaves will “go A.P.E.” on July 31 when Artist
Personal Experience radio stations debut from multi-platinum, GRAMMY-winning hit-makers
Christina Aguilera and the Eagles. Both artists’ respective A.P.E. Radio stations will be distributed
across Clear Channel Radio’s "iheartradio” network (www.iheartradio.com), which includes
hundreds of local radio websites; the popular iheartradio mobile app, which has been downloaded
by 2.4 million people in just 10 months; embeddable widgets; and each artist’s site,
ChristinaAguilera.com and Eaglesband.com. The Eagles and Aguilera have complete creative
control in the programming of their respective 24-hour channels, which feature exclusive material
for their fans -- including interviews, news, personal commentary, and playlists featuring their
favorite music.

When the public tunes into Aguilera’s channel, they’ll hear the singer discussing everything from
music to motherhood to fashion. The station will also feature Aguilera’s personally selected playlist
of some of her favorite songs, including a diverse catalog of artists such as Santigold, Nina
Simone, Black Sabbath, David Bowie and many more.

Similarly, the Eagles’ A.P.E. channel is set to include station host and band guitarist Joe Walsh
offering anecdotes on his early days in music, with topics ranging from destroying hotel rooms to
poignant recollections of the Kent State shootings. Music from the Eagles themselves will also be
featured on occasion, accompanied by behind-the-scenes stories about the songs. Walsh has also
selected tracks from his favorite artists including the Beatles, Allman Brothers Band, Kings of Leon,
Wilco, Sly and the Family Stone and more to air throughout the programming day.

In the coming months, many more of the brightest stars in music – including Weezer in August – as
well as up-and-coming artists, will host their own respective channels to be available on hundreds
of internet radio and digital outlets. These artist-hosted channels will allow performers to connect
with their fans in the digital realm like never before. Likewise, listeners get a closer look inside their
favorite artist’s careers.
