David Redfern/RedfernsThere’s a whole lotta Led Zeppelin coming to a television near you.

This Saturday, AXS TV is devoting an entire day to Led Zeppelin-related programming, beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET with the 2008 documentary It Might Get Loud. The film examines the background and guitar-playing philosophies of Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, U2‘s the Edge, and bluesy rocker Jack White. It also brings the trio together for a fascinating show-and-tell roundtable discussion.

Next, at 3:00 p.m. ET, Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant takes center stage in Robert Plant & The Sensational Shape Shifters — Live at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption, recorded in 2016. Plant and his backing band of crack musicians offer acoustic-focused versions of Zeppelin classics like “Black Dog” and “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” plus standout tracks from Plant’s solo career.

The classic 1976 concert film Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same airs at 4:00 p.m. Recorded at Madison Square Garden, the dazzling set features the band at the height of its power.

Plant returns at 6:30 p.m. ET for the PBS-produced special, Soundstage: Robert Plant & The Strange Sensation, offering funkier versions of Zeppelin standards, solo tracks, and a cover of Jimi Hendrix‘s “Hey Joe.”

Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, is featured in Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar, airing at 7:30 p.m. ET. Hagar and his band The Circle, featuring Jason on drums, perform a headlining set at Florida’s SunFest.

Finishing off AXS TV’s Zeppelin-fest, settle in at 8:00 p.m. ET for a rebroadcast of the Classic Rock Awards 2016, featuring appearances and performances from Page, Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett, Aerosmith‘s Joe Perry, Richie Sambora, Johnny Depp, Cheap Trick and more.
