yahoo - Grateful Dead channel on XM (57) is playing last night's show NOW
it's also on Sirius, don't know the channel
I was there, but arrived as Phil & F were wrapping up with Help/Slip/Franklin's
excellent show, went till around 2:30 AM
Sure would be nice to be able to be in Florida or elsewhere on New Years and listen to the live New Year's show, like in the old days (radio broadcasts)... That would fit in the budget.since traveling to CA is not in the budget at this time. Wish I were there, am in spirit.. I can almost hear it.. Maybe next year, huh?
Just think, a world wide simulcast, streaming on every media??? What a concept.. Can it happen?
Peace and Happy New Year to everyone!!!
better comes after worse... de-"W" the world. Oh, guess we're on our way...
maybe everyone's headed back to the Civic.
I have one ticket available for each night that I need to get rid off. Due to unfortunate circumstances, I will not be able to make it out to San Francisco for the shows. The tickets were purchased through Grateful Dead Ticket Sales mail order. I am looking to get rid of them at cost. If interested please send me an email Thanks.
