Grateful Dead[edit]

He has been working as the Grateful Dead's audiovisual archivist and CD/DVD producer since September 1999. He was put in charge of the Grateful Dead's vault after the August 1999 passing of original Grateful Dead tape archivist Dick Latvala.

He has also produced several CD releases by Jerry Garcia.

Lemieux hosts a daily radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio (Channel 32) and XM Satellite Radio (Channel 23), Today in Grateful Dead History, in which he selects a segment of music from that day in the Grateful Dead's history and explains its historical context and other information relating to the selection.

Lemieux is also the editor of the Association of Moving Image Archivists' quarterly Newsletter. He is on the Board of Directors of the Victoria Film Festival in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, where he has been on the programming committee since 2003, and for which he writes film notes for the festival's official programme guide.
