XM RADIO will launch a new channel dedicated to the music of rock icons LED ZEPPELIN on NOV. 8th. The new channel, "XM LED: The LED ZEPPELIN Channel" (XM 59), will feature the band's complete audio catalog, interviews with band members and other unique content that celebrates the musical contributions of LED ZEPPELIN. On the day the channel launches XM will also offer the U.S. premiere of the forthcoming re-issued two-disc soundtrack for the band's landmark concert film "The Song Remains the Same," which features six previously unreleased songs from LED ZEPPELIN's 1973 MADISON SQUARE GARDEN shows.
"With this channel, XM has curated the comprehensive LED ZEPPELIN experience," said EVP/Programming ERIC LOGAN. "Often cited as a primary influence for a who's who of modern day musicians, LED ZEPPELIN is one of the most important rock acts from the last half-century and 'XM LED' will provide fans with the sounds and insights that have made them such enduring rock icons."
