Sirius XM Radio announced today that it will launch “Live from the BBC Vault,” the new series featuring concert broadcasts from the extensive and wide-ranging BBC Radio archive.

The series will debut on SiriusXM’s Deep Tracks, channel 27, on Monday, October 3 at 10:00 pm ET with a vintage BBC performance by Pink Floyd, recorded in 1973; and SiriusXMU, channel 35, on Wednesday, October 5 at 9:00 pm ET, which will broadcast a classic performance by Radiohead, recorded in 1997. Both performances will be rebroadcast throughout the week.

The following week First Wave, channel 33, will air a vintage BBC concert from R.E.M., recorded in 1985, in honor of the Hall of Fame inducted Athens, GA band who recently announced their separation after 31 years.
