This arrived in the e-mailbag sometime last night. Presented in a slightly modified version.
"To celebrate the release of their new live concert film and album Celebration Day, Led Zeppelin is teaming up with DIRECTV and Lone Star 92.5 FM for a special simulcast over downtown Dallas at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21. "At that time, the DIRECTV Blimp, a airship similar in appearance to those used in legendary Led Zeppelin artwork, will broadcast the new live video of the bands classic track Black Dog on its one-of-a-kind LED screen while at the same time Lone Star 92.5FM will play the song on air."
[It's about this time that I started having a desire to rewrite Black Dog's lyrics to something like "Hey, hey, traffic/I don't see you move/ they're doing this at rush hour/what're they trying to prove?" But I digress.]
"The track is featured on Led Zeppelins Celebration Day, which chronicles the bands 2007 concert at Londons O2 Arena."
That's not the only stunt Lone Star 92.5 (a k a KZPS-FM) is doing connected to this. Check this out.
Granted, you can see the video in question on YouTube, but let's not steal anyone's fun. Instead, I present a video-free version of one of Led Zeppelin's more underappreciated songs -- and one of my favorites from the band. From Physical Graffiti:
