Sirius Satellite Radio announced the launch of the highly anticipated Grateful Dead Channel. The channel will include rare and unreleased performances, original shows hosted by Grateful Dead founders Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, as well as rare archival interviews with Jerry Garcia.  It will make its debut 9/7 at 12 pm ET on Channel 32 with a rare concert broadcast of the band’s 1974 performance at the Hollywood Bowl. 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. The channel will also feature contributions from Grateful Dead expert David Gans, as well as Dead archivist David Lemieux, who will provide a unique look into the Dead’s lush past with daily insights.
