SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO adds another artist-specific channel with the launch of GRATEFUL DEAD RADIO, a channel dedicated to the band's music and that of its individual members. The channel, exclusive to SIRIUS, will launch this SUMMER.
"We have fans who've driven hundreds of miles to see us," said drummer MICKEY HART. "Now you can save on greenhouse gas emissions with SIRIUS without driving a mile."
Said SIRIUS President, Entertainment and Sports SCOTT GREENSTEIN, "GRATEFUL DEAD’s importance in the history of rock n’ roll is undeniable. In the '60s they helped to define a generation with their music and their creativity, in the '70s they virtually pioneered the concept of 'jam bands,' and in the '80s and '90s they were among the preeminent live touring bands. They have continued to amass a significant and extremely loyal fan base to this very day. This unique musical relationship makes SIRIUS the premier home for Dead Heads across NORTH AMERICA, and GRATEFUL DEAD RADIO will bring the band’s music into the future of audio entertainment."
BOB WEIR added, "Listen up, and listen good."
Martha Stewart Living Expands
