Following in the footsteps of his grunge brethren Dave Grohl, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is getting his own SiriusXM radio show. “The Eddie Vedder Radio Show” will be a limited-run series featuring Vedder’s “all-time favorite songs, from early punk rock influences to unreleased material from his personal archives” mixed in with personal stories and social commentary and maybe even some tips on maintaining your ukulele.
“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,” said SiriusXM president/chief content officer Scott Greenstein in a statement. “Eddie’s record collection could tell some stories all by itself, let alone with Eddie at the helm. We know our listeners will enjoy hearing this one.”
The show premiers Wednesday, December 5th at 5:00 p.m. ET on Pearl Jam Radio (channel 22) and will also be available via SiriusXM On Demand and the Internet Radio App post-broadcast.
