SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO'S GRATEFUL DEAD CHANNEL DEBUTS NEW SHOW
Live roundtable discussion show "Tales from the Golden Road" premieres January 20
Scheduled guests include Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir

Bob Weir
SIRIUS Satellite Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today the debut of a monthly live roundtable show hosted by Grateful Dead experts David Gans and Gary Lambert on SIRIUS' exclusive Grateful Dead Channel. "Tales from the Golden Road" will premiere this Sunday, January 20 at 4 p.m. ET, with an encore January 21 at 10 a.m. ET on the Grateful Dead Channel, SIRIUS channel 32.

In the premiere episode of "Tales from the Golden Road," Gans and Lambert will be joined by Grateful Dead and RatDog guitarist Bob Weir, longtime Grateful Dead publicist and historian Dennis McNally, and the producer of the Trips Festival film, Eric Christensen. The roundtable discussion will focus on the early era of the Grateful Dead and the Trips Festival, a three-day event in 1966 that involved some of the earliest Dead performances chronicled in Christensen's film. The two-hour monthly show will invite Grateful Dead fans to call in and participate.

The Grateful Dead Channel, dedicated to the music and legacy of the Grateful Dead, launched exclusively on SIRIUS Satellite Radio in 2007. The channel features music spanning the entire career of the Grateful Dead with unreleased concert recordings and original shows hosted by band members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann. The channel also features archival interviews with Jerry Garcia and contributions from Grateful Dead expert David Gans and Dead archivist David Lemieux.

I dont know about you guys, but I'd rip my ears off and smash my head off my dashboard every time I got in my car without Sirius. And that was before the Dead channel, which is the sugar in my cubes :)

vida421, what the f**k are you doing on Jambase? Really? The Dead started this whole "scene"! If it weren't for those guys, you wouldn't have this open forum to spread your negative shit!

Yes, thank God for Sirus!

I really miss the commercials on terrestrial radio. I am just not hip to who Bud Light is saluting anymore...

On the eighth day God created the Grateful Dead!!! Don't forget Jam On or Sirius Bluegrass or the Vault or that Disorder (used to be 32) is now on 70... I Love Sirius!!!

JamOn is sweet! I've had it for 3 years now and it just keeps getting better. Less Stef Scamardo and less Warren Haynes would be nice. Also if they never played the Ryan Montblue Band ever again, that would rule.

Loving the Sirius, I got it last X-mas for Howard and have since discovered Jam On and of course good times can always be had on #32. I had a loaner from the dealership the other day and had to drive around with just terrestrial, yuck. Listened to NPR when I could get a signal. Need a good song start at 17 and work down through the classic rock channels, if your still stuck #32!

Gans and Lambert. Man those two know so friggin' much about the band. I can't wait to hear more of their stories. I totally dig "This day i Dead History". Great insight to some awesome shows.

Rock On Brother...
