Sirius launch Grateful Dead Channel

Former members to share hosting duties

The Dead live again on Sirius Satellite Radio’s new Grateful Dead Channel.

Sirius will launch an all-Dead, all the time channel at noon on Sept. 7 with the only known recording of the band’s July 21, 1974 concert at the Hollywood Bowl .

Founding member Bob Weir will host a show following the performance, with other members of the Dead doing host duties for the channel’s other original shows. Additional programming will feature rarities, previously unreleased recordings and archival interviews with late frontman Jerry Garcia.

The community around the music of the Grateful Dead is both long-standing and large, a fact acknowledged by Scott Greenstein, Sirius president of sports and entertainment. “The loyalty and passion of Grateful Dead fans are the truest testament to the band’s legacy,” he said.

The band’s touring shows were famously lengthy and much-recorded, so Sirius has set a high bar for itself by promising fans exclusive and unreleased content.

The Grateful Dead Channel joins the ranks of Sirius music channels devoted to one artist or band, including Elvis Radio and Siriusly Sinatra.
