Happy Anniversary, Pearl Jam! What better way to celebrate the iconic grunge band's two decades of thoroughly rocktacular existence than with Pearl Jam Radio, which starts today, October 22, on Sirius XM.
It's a walk down memory lane with Pearl Jam Radio, which will launch with a special airing of the band's 10th anniversary concert from Las Vegas in 2000. The concert can be heard in its entirety today at 6:00 PM ET. The first day of Pearl Jam Radio will also feature rarely heard highlights from the band's very first concert performance on October 22, 1990 at Off Ramp Café in Seattle.
Who needs bootlegs when you have PJR?! Pearl Jam Radio will also feature archival concerts from throughout the band's career, rarities, unreleased material from the band's personal music library and music from the band's side projects, including solo and pre-Pearl Jam music. "Pearl Jam is unique in the history of the American music scene and has released some of the most influential music of the past two decades," said Scott Greenstein, Sirius XM President/Chief Content Officer. "From their love of vinyl to their respect for their fans to their dedication to social causes, the band's continuing legacy is something we're thrilled to celebrate with Pearl Jam Radio."
Pearl Jam Radio will be available on Sirius channel 17 and XM channel 39.
Will you tune in to Pearl Jam Radio? Are you a satellite radio fan? I am. I listen daily, mostly because of Howard Stern and I used to work on Sirius' Hard Attack before it became Liquid Metal. I love satellite radio.
