The broadcast will also be available through the SiriusXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.

The special guest DJ will be available on SiriusXM On Demand beginning Thursday, July 23 through the SiriusXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. The guest DJ session will also rebroadcast on SiriusXM’s 1st Wave, channel 33.

    I would have LOVED to go to this but I don't have XM/Sirius so I couldn't even enter the contest to win tickets. I just personally find the set lists for these promo shows to be more interesting and consist of more of what I really want to hear. Am I correct that you have to be a subscriber to hear this when it airs?? If so, that's too bad, but hopefully someone here will report back.

    I heard him introduce Snow in Vegas yesterday on the Coffeehouse. I could enter but have no means of going, of course! I'd love to attend one of those types of performances some day.

    I heard part of the the DJ show on 1st Wave today. I loved hearing David playing The Beat and Madness. Also, the Specials, Fun Boy Three, and New Order.

    Sorry, all, I did not get the chance to hear this in full yet. My air conditioning was OUT and it was 100*F here - gross!! So I waited in the air conditioned car for the repairman, but even David Gray couldn't win the battle over cool air! I have heard various parts of it replayed, so maybe sometime soon I can hear the whole thing. It was just David alone. These are the songs I know he played:

    Falling Free (the radio's digital display said Falling For You :confused:)
    (probably more songs here)
    See the Sea

    Then he took questions from the audience and there was probably a song or two after that.

    There were a couple of interviews between the songs and David talked a LOT! One thing I hadn't heard him say before is that he rewrote Falling Free after he fell in love :)

    One of the questions that I heard asked by the audience was what are his two or three favorite songs of his. He said BOTHA, Nemesis, and Shine. I think it sounded like Nemesis is his most favorite. And he said that, as we all know, you have to hear it at a gig to truly appreciate it. I would like to hear all the audience questions that were asked.

    That's all I've got for now!!

    Thank you Vicki. Much appreciated.

    This sounded so interesting right when it was announced and apparently it is. So any info about a replay would be great. There was no way of getting a trial subscription while travelling but from home that's always a possibility.
