Dave Grohl to Host SiriusXM ‘Sound City’ Show
As if he didn't already have enough to do, Dave Grohl has picked up another new gig: Host for satellite radio provider SiriusXM, where the Foo Fighters frontman will be behind the mic for a limited-run series titled 'Dave Grohl Presents Sound City.'
As astute readers have probably already guessed, Grohl's show will tie in with his upcoming 'Sound City' documentary, which takes a loving look back at some of the many classic songs and albums recorded at the legendary studio of the same name. If you think devoting a film and radio show to a defunct old studio seems a little excessive, never fear: Grohl has plenty of material to work from, as Sound City played host to a long list of acts that included Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, and Tom Petty (not to mention Nirvana) before closing its doors.
"I'm so proud of the Sound City film and beyond excited for the world to see what I've been working on for the past year," Grohl said in a statement announcing the show. "Even before that, though, I'm grateful to SiriusXM for giving me the opportunity to share all this great music and to let people know what got me excited about Sound City in the first place."
'Dave Grohl Presents Sound City' is scheduled to debut this Thursday (Nov. 29) at 4pm ET on Classic Vinyl, channel 26, with subsequent shows airing on different channels. See the full schedule below:
