Default New Led Zeppelin Channel Coming to XM

I am a sirius user but this is THE RIGHT band to put on their own channel. Forget the Grateful Dead or Elvis - Zep has the depth of catalog to make a channel around...

See press release below -

News Release Issued: November 7, 2007 12:18 PM EST

Dedicated Led Zeppelin Channel to Launch Exclusively on XM Beginning November
8

"XM LED: The Led Zeppelin Channel" To Feature U.S. Premiere of "The Song
Remains the Same" Reissue with Previously Unreleased Material, Interviews
with Led Zeppelin and More

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- XM Radio will launch a new
channel dedicated to the music of rock icons Led Zeppelin on November 8, it
was announced today. 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.

XM's U.S. premiere of "The Song Remains the Same" soundtrack reissue will air
in its entirety at 12 midnight ET on November 8 with encore broadcasts airing
all day to kick off "XM LED."

"With this channel, XM has curated the comprehensive Led Zeppelin
experience," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming, XM.
"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."

The launch of "XM LED" is the first of several highly-anticipated milestones
for Led Zeppelin. In addition to the re-release of "The Song Remains the
Same" soundtrack and DVD, the band is also issuing "Mothership," a 24-track
re-mastered career retrospective; making its entire musical catalog available
digitally; and taking to the stage for a reunion performance headlining the
Ahmet Ertegun Tribute concert in London.

Led Zeppelin is one of music's most celebrated rock bands. They produced
some of the greatest albums in recording history and are constantly
considered amongst the greatest popular musicians of all time, both
collectively and individually. The band formed in 1968 from the then
recently disbanded group "The Yardbirds," when guitarist Jimmy Page brought
in Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones and began touring as "The
New Yardbirds" before changing their name to Led Zeppelin.

In 1969, their self-titled debut album was released and is regarded as one of
the pivotal records in the creation of heavy rock. They have sold over 300
million albums worldwide and, in 1995, the band was inducted into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame.

"XM LED" will be available through May 8, 2008. XM's Lou Brutus will serve
as program director for the channel. Programming information for the channel
will be available online at http://www.xmradio.com/ledzeppelin .

In a strange instance of synchronicity I was sitting here listening to Humble Pie live at the Whiskey a-go-go 1969 while tooling around the avrevforums. They're in the middle of a groovy 21 minute version of "Walk on gilded splinters" and Steve Marriot just sang a few lines from "In my time of dying." I'm glad the Zeps 'wrote' it 6 years later.

The Zeps have recorded a new song and I'm excited about it (believe it or not). I'm certain it's completely orginal and even though it's called "Catfish Blues" I'm certain they know all about catfish.

There's also an FM Led Zep channel. It's called KLOS. Whenever I hear new music there, I at first think somebody has switched the dial.

way back in the old days when you didn't have to call it classic rock the two biggest rock stations were kmet and klos. kmet was a little wilder and klos was the corporate station. kmet went away... klos remained the corporate station. i didn't listen to it then... but do now sometimes when my wife says, "i wonder what zeppelin song is playing on the classic rock station." True! Great minds thinking you know.
