Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready will preview tracks from the group’s upcoming double-disc concert set “Live at Benaroya Hall” via a live, one-hour radio broadcast beginning 8 p.m. ET Sunday (July 25). A band spokesperson confirms such outlets as WBCN Boston, KNDD Seattle, WWDC Washington, D.C., KOMP Las Vegas, XTRA San Diego, WRIF Detroit and WMMR Philadelphia will carry the program.
In addition, McCready was interviewed by XM Satellite Radio for broadcast on the Ethel XM47 show, which will air Sunday at 7 p.m. ET and Monday at 10 p.m. ET.
Due Tuesday, “Live at Benaroya Hall” is Pearl Jam’s first release since splitting with longtime label Epic, and will be issued via the band’s own Ten Club fan organization with distribution by BMG. The largely acoustic set was taped Oct. 22, 2003, as part of a benefit for the Seattle-based aid organization YouthCare.
In related news, Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard is scheduled to appear Tuesday morning on KNDD’s Morning Alternative show.
