Eddie Vedder to Host New Show on SiriusXM's Pearl Jam Radio
On the heels of last week's announcement of Dave Grohl's "Sound City" show on Sirius XM Radio, today the network announced that Eddie Vedder will host a new, limited-run show on its Pearl Jam Radio channel, one of SiriusXM's original artist-branded channels dedicated to artists.
"The Eddie Vedder Radio Show" will premiere on Wednesday, December 5 at 5 p.m. ET on Pearl Jam Radio, channel 22.
On it, listeners will hear Vedder play "many of his all-time favorite songs, from early punk rock influences to unreleased material from his personal archives," according to a press release. "The Eddie Vedder Radio Show" will also feature Vedder discussing his musical influences and contemporaries who inspire him as well as him sharing personal stories about his 20-plus-year-long career.

"Eddie has been the voice of a generation and a voice with a conscience and we are happy to have him take up residence here to do his own show," "Eddie's record collection could tell some stories all by itself, let alone with Eddie at the helm," said SiriusXM president/chief content officer Scott Greenstein. "We know our listeners will enjoy hearing this one."
Pearl Jam Radio features archival concerts from the group's career, plus unreleased material from them and the individual members' side projects and pre-Pearl Jam efforts.
After each broadcast, "The Eddie Vedder Radio Show" will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App, or online at siriusxm.com.
