SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO has set the launch date of the GRATEFUL DEAD Channel. Heard exclusively on SIRIUS, the channel will feature music spanning the GRATEFUL DEAD’s long and celebrated history.

The GRATEFUL DEAD Channel will make its debut on SEPTEMBER 7 at 12p ET on SIRIUS channel 32 with an extremely rare concert broadcast of the band’s 1974 performance at the HOLLYWOOD BOWL in LOS ANGELES. This performance will be followed by a special show hosted by BOB WEIR, the first by a member of the GRATEFUL DEAD on the new channel.
