KPFA marathon and gig spam

My main purpose in writing to you today is to get the word out about the annual KPFA Grateful Dead fund-raising marathon, scheduled for Saturday, February 19, 9 am to 1 am Pacific Time.

Lots of information about it on my blog: http://cloudsurfing.gdhour.com/kpfa_gd-marathon_2-19-2011

I am hoping to raise $50,000 in this 16-hour event, and of course I am hoping each of you will contribute something.

In advance of the marathon broadcast, I have put up several items for auction. Some of them are on Facebook, accessible through this page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=185116574852376

For those who aren't on Facebook, there are many other items up for auction on my blog: http://cloudsurfing.gdhour.com/archives/tag/kpfa-auction

Items for auction on the blog include:

- a gift certificate for a meal at Bocanova, one of our favorite restaurants in Oakland
- Hartman Electronics' Envelope Filter (a guitar effect), designed in consultation with guitarist Mark Karan (who will perform on the marathon with a special band)
- A photograph of Jerry Garcia, taken on 9/28/75 by Jon Sievert
- two art prints by Mark Erickson
- An original, sealed copy of the limited-edition Postcards of the Hanging: Grateful Dead Perform the Songs of Bob Dylan, with the bonus disc
- and more to come.

How you can help with the KPFA Grateful Dead marathon:

- Please spread the word! Lots of info here: http://cloudsurfing.gdhour.com/kpfa_gd-marathon_2-19-2011
- Take a look at the auctions on Facebook and on my blog, and please make a bid or two.
- Listen to the broadcast on Saturday, February 19 (webcast outlets are listed on the blog page linked above)
- Give money to KPFA!

Thank you for your support. I am on the Local Station Board of KPFA, so my desire to ensure and promote the health of the station is even greater and more enthusiastic than ever before (and I've been doing this fund-raiser for 25 years).

And now, the GIG SPAM!

New recording

I have a new release to rave about!

FestivaLink.net presents David Gans & Eric Rawlins: Desert Wind, Rollin' River

Players:
David Gans (guitar, vocals)
Eric Rawlins (guitar, vocals)

David Gans and Eric Rawlins have been making music together, mostly at parties and occasionally in public, for more than 20 years. Recorded before a live audience in David's living room in Oakland, this album includes original compositions and many of their favorite songs by others and highlights the warmth of their musical friendship over time.

Recorded by Stephen Barncard
Edited and mixed by Jeremy Goody at Megasonic Sound, Oakland CA
Mastered in HDCD™ by Dave Glasser at Airshow Mastering
Photo by Earl Crabb

The title, "Desert Wind, Rollin' River," is a line from one of Eric's wonderful songs. Five of the songs are mine, three are Eric's, and the rest are favorites from 20 years of Sing Things, including two by Kate Wolf, two by Rodney Crowell, one by Jackson Browne, three by Nanci Griffith, and the old Don and Juan number "What's Your Name?"

Travelin’ Man
I Wish It Would Rain
Waltzing Across Texas
Caroline
Cherokee Rider
Going Back to Georgia
Kilkelly

Leavin’ Louisiana
