Archive interviews with LED ZEPPELIN's Robert Plant and Jimmy Page will be aired on the "In The Studio" show during the week of October 18. Page and Plant will be heard discussing the 40th anniversary of "Led Zeppelin III" with professional radio broadcaster and rock musician interviewer Redbeard.
"In The Studio" is a weekly hour-long interview-with-music "rockumentary" which looks at the making of many of the greatest albums recorded in rock and roll history, although sometimes it spotlights the history of rock and roll bands. Redbeard interviews the musicians who created these classic albums.

"Led Zeppelin III" was recorded between January and July 1970 and was released on October 5, 1970 by Atlantic Records. Composed largely at a remote cottage in Wales known as Bron-Yr-Aur, this work represented a maturing of the band's music towards a greater emphasis on folk and acoustic sounds. This surprised many fans and critics, and upon its release the album received rather indifferent reviews. Although it is not one of the highest sellers in LED ZEPPELIN's catalogue, "Led Zeppelin III" is now generally praised, and acknowledged as representing an important milestone in the band's history.
