The Grateful Dead will live again next week on Sirius as the satellite radio operator rolls out a channel dedicated exclusively to the band. At noon on Sept. 7, the channel will go live with one
of the Dead's most famed performances: live sets from 1974 at The Hollywood Bowl.
Along with recorded music, The Grateful Dead Channel will also have unreleased live performances and
programs hosted by founders Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. In addition, listeners can expect to hear interviews with singer/guitarist Jerry Garcia, who died 12 years ago.
The new channel joins a growing roster of 24-hour channels on Sirius that are devoted to a single band or artist, including Elvis Radio and Siriusly Sinatra.
