SIRIUS Launching Led Zeppelin Station

Recommended Posts

It's only going to work if they can play bootlegs, solo stuff, Yardbirds etc.

Let's hope they have an expansive focus with the format.

The last time around they played all the studio stuff from Zeppelin as well as solo. Their official live releases were also included. As far as bootleg material, I did hear selections from Zurich in 1980 and Southampton in 1973. :cheer:

Can anyone recall, if XM played any other unofficial recordings live or studio when XMLed was on the air earlier this year?

With this re-launch it's possible something's up. The last time occurred around the time of the O2 concert. :unsure:

I'm pretty sure it'd be illegal if they played bootlegs.

Illegal because Sirius/XM members pay money to listen to the station.

If the station was non-profit, then I believe bootlegs would be allowable.

...

And since it's only for 2 months, I think it'll still work. As far as the expansiveness, I don't want to hear any Yardbirds stuff unless it was a song Zeppelin eventually re-made or re-did in some capacity (concert or recording).

Solo stuff would be cool too.

Well,then someone better tell Bruce Springsteen,because they play boots of his shows all the fuckin' time.I'm not just referring to a song here and there,I'm talking about complete concerts.At one time,I thought it was very peculiar,because Bruce is famously um,"finicky" about the quality of shows to release to his fans officially-kind of like someone we know ;) -but Sirius has pretty much carte blanch, in regards to what they play.From what I heard,they put up a pretty good sized chunk of change for the privilege.

Maybe Led Zep turned down that particular part of the deal.

Yeah it's hard to say what's legal nowadays.

I just listened to the first 20 minutes of the station's launch.

It sounded like they were going to play:

-all studio recorded material and live albums (of course)

-some unreleased live stuff

-solo stuff

-interviews

So this is nothing we didn't guess already, but just straight from the actual station.

The first 3 songs were:

Rock n Roll

How Many More Times

Whole Lotta Love

It seems like it's drawing a lot on Led Zeppelin nostalgia. Prior to the 6pm start of the channel, there was a looping sequence of Led Zeppelin cuts along with an announcer saying stuff like:

(not direct quotes)

-"The Zeppelins are coming. All citizens are advised to stay in their homes and watch the skies."

-"The Ministry of Defense expects the Zeppelins to be over us at 6pm. What they want is unknown"

It is on Sirius 12 and it started today at 6PM Eastern time. I happened to be in my car and heard the start up. Very exciting. Looks like my satellite station is going to remain on 12 for the duration. :cheer:

If you have a paid internet subscription to XM, it seems you can't get XM Led. Channel 39 is not listed. :boohoo: Earlier in the year when the station was on XM, it was available via internet. Over on Sirius now however, Channel 12 is available on the internet, so I cancelled my XM subscription and now going for Sirius for this reason. :thumbsup:

When I first turned on Channel 39, I temporarily lost my signal (I was in my car), then the screen blinked "LOADING" for about 10 seconds before it came on. I found that strange. Sorry you had trouble but I think Sirius may be better anyway.

My radio is permanently on Sirius 74 (Blues)--does this mean I'd have to actually *gulp* change channels? :o

Rain Song from the 1980 "Over Europe" tour is currently playing. Pretty sure it's from Zurich on June 29th. I've had the station on for a few hours now, and this is the first so called rarity I've heard. I love the 1980 versions of this song and this version is one of the best. Something to do with Jonesy's mellotron I guess. :thumbsup::piano:

Kentuckygirl, the same thing has happened to me lots of times, but only in the morning when I'm driving to work, and has only happened on XM 54. I'll have to see tomorrow morning if it happens on XM 39.
