DAVE GROHL To Host New Sirius XM Radio Show
Sirius XM Radio announced today that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will host an exclusive, limited-run show that will air on a number of SiriusXM music channels.
"Dave Grohl Presents Sound City" will premiere this Thursday at 4:00 pm ET on Classic Vinyl, channel 26, in advance of the release of Grohl's feature-length film documentary of the same name.
The weekly series will feature Grohl telling stories about the music recorded at the iconic Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, and will showcase songs recorded there, from albums like Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush," Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours," Metallica's "Death Magnetic" and Nirvana's "Nevermind," the latter of which provided Grohl's introduction to the studio in 1991.
"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. "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."

Just caught the show... You didn't miss much in regards to Buckingham Nicks... Dave Grohl told the story we've all heard before how Lindsey and Stevie recorded Buckingham Nicks with Keith Olsen at Sound City and Mick came in looking for a studio to record the next Fleetwood Mac album, Keith played Mick "Frozen Love" from Buckingham Nicks to demo the studio and a few weeks later after Bob W. quit Mick called Keith asking about LB. He was told by Keith that Lindsey and Stevie were a package deal if he wanted Lindsey, he'd also have to take Stevie... end of story, that's how the classic FM line-up began. Then Dave played "Frozen Love". The entire sirius show is just over 5 hours long... Didn't stick around for the Fleetwood Mac part.
