Instrument retailer Guitar Center is launching “Guitar Center Sessions,” an interview/performance series featuring noted musicians, on DirecTV with a debut Aug. 21 episode featuring Peter Gabriel. The show, which will air on DirecTV’s channel 101, will be hosted by KCRW music director and “Morning Becomes Eclectic” host Jason Bentley.
The show is presently airing in 3D on DirecTV’s channel 103.
A preview page, with some teaser footage, can be found here. To pump the show, the site is offering a free download of a new version of Gabriel’s classic “Here Comes the Flood,” first heard on his self-titled 1977 solo debut.
“Sessions” promises a show with Jane’s Addiction in September.
