Jack White and Third Man Records will appear on the History Channel’s ‘American Pickers’

Former White Stripes frontman Jack White and the studio for his record label, Third Man Records, are scheduled to appear on the History Channel at 9 p.m. EST on Monday (Jan. 9).

White will be featured on the show, “American Pickers,” which follows two men — Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz — as they travel across the United States and “scour the country’s junkyards, basements and barns for hidden gems,” according to the show’s statement. The show attempts to shed light on the antique business and various the ins-and-outs of the industry.

In the upcoming episode, Wolfe and Fritz stop by White’s studio and label headquarters in Nashville to negotiate with the guitarist over memorabilia, including the photo booth featured in the music video for, “Hang You from the Heavens,” by White’s band, the Dead Weather, reports Pitchfork. For more information on the program, visit the show’s official website.

White’s other alternative rock band, the Raconteurs, are currently on hiatus, and they don’t have any imminent plans to get back together. Raconteurs drummer Patrick Keeler recently checked in with Audio Ink Radio to reminisce about the first time he heard Nirvana’s, “Nevermind,” album. “That definitely changed the way I looked at commercial music at that time, for me,” he said. “I wasn’t into many new bands at that time, because nothing really appealed to me. Finally, I found something new I really loved. It changed my view of popular music from what was out at the time. I got to see them during the ‘Nevermind’ tour, and that was awesome.”
