These are interesting times to be a satellite radio fan. Yeah, there’s that merger hanging over the industry’s head (let them merge, I say), but Sirius and XM are now experimenting with artist-specific channels. XM LED, which launches today and lasts through next May, is a Led Zeppelin-only channel that will features every damn thing the band has ever released. OK, maybe not all those bootlegs you can find online, so maybe I should say damn near everything.
The surviving members are really getting the Led out. I’m listening to Mothership right now and you’ll soon be able to buy the band’s complete discography from iTunes. A fun time to be a fan of “that crazy white boy band,” as my mom described them some years ago.
