Jon Stewart to Host 20th Anniversary Retrospective of Nirvana
Jon Stewart has signed on to host a Q&A “Town hall” with the surviving members of Nirvana, in celebration of the 20th anniversary release of the seminal Nevermind. On September 24th, Stewart will preside over a two-hour radio special on SiriusXM’s Lithium Channel.

“SiriusXM's Town Hall with Nirvana” will be recorded in front of a studio audience, and will include quondam Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic, and Nevermind producer Butch Vig.

"This is our way to honor the artists who, with the release of Nevermind, influenced a generation and marked a change in the course of music history no generation will ever forget. Our 'Town Hall' series offers our listeners a rare chance to meet some of the most important and influential artists of our time,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM.

In addition to the Town Hall hosted by Stewart, SiriusXM will launch a dedicated Nirvana channel Nevermind Radio “on Friday, September 23 at 3:00 pm ET on channel 34 and will feature the music of Nirvana's entire career, including their three classic albums, B-sides, rarities and live performances. The channel will also feature celebrities in various fields sharing their thoughts on Nirvana and their influence. Nevermind Radio will air through Wednesday, September 28 at 12:00 am ET,” stated a press release.

Nevermind was Nirvana’s second studio album, and arguably considered the most influential record of the past two decades. On April 8, 1994, Kurt Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home of a self-inflicted gunshot wound-he was, yes, 27 years old.
