Our own dgans is a programming consultant for the new channel!
A few months ago, I was listening to Alligator being played on Sirius XM. About halfway through it, another song started playing, abruptly ending Alligator. It was jarring and certainly not what we expect from a radio station that pretends to understand its listeners. I went to the Sirius website and complained but never received a reply. I don’t know whether anyone else has noticed any bad edits from Sirius, but if you do, I encourage you to give ‘em feedback.
Interesting organ playing from Keith from the Nassau Coliseum on 9/7/73 during the Truckin' jam going into drums. I'd never heard this before! Tune in today during the GD History segment at 6 pm central, or anytime if you have an internet log-in subscription.
So Many Roads Conference Co-organizers Nicholas Meriwether and Michael Parrish will be talking about the conference today at 2PM PDT on Sirius XM's Grateful Dead channel on the channel's talk show, Tales from the Golden Road, which is co-hosted by Gary Lambert and David Gans.
I am wondering if anyone knows what the song/date is for the music played in the background while Dave is doing his intro on today in grateful dead history on SiriusXM. I don't mean the late 60s Dark Star but the music that sounds like a supercharged Fire on the Mountain jam but with early 70s guitar tone/phrasing. I actually emailed DL about this but the music is added by SiriusXM people and he doesn't listen to the show. Anybody know what I am talking about??? It's driving me crazy so somebody please help me out! :)
They offer a sound quality upgrade but why shouldn't it all be high quality? Sirius is living in the past. The GD channel is the bomb but the Sirius/XM tech is out of date, think Pandora has it on them. Sucks I am a lifetime Sirius subscriber. No wiggle room when it comes to the poor quality of their product. 24/7 GD music is nice but thats all I like about Sirius.
Just my opinion. And thats nothing to shake a stick at
The two vehicles I have (2014 VW and 2013 Ford) both have Sirius in them
I am not an over the top audiophile, but the sound quality on the GD channel satellite broadcast is poor. Very Compressed, muddy and un-dynamic....it is painful to listen to at times, esp on the live material
The internet feed at home evidently has a higher bitrate and sounds a whole lot better, crisp and clear
I want to support the band beyond description and really enjoy the programming (esp Tales of the Golden RD). It would be grate if GDinc could work with sirius to improve the sound quality of the broadcasts, as my gut is telling me it is not the source material, but rather the satellite transmission
Good stuff from 10/30/73
I would like to hear 10-18/19/20-1974 very clean on GD radio Siris
Next weeks schedule is out : 8/14/81, 7/26/72, 5/25/74, 10/12/77, 10/21/71, 4/15/89, and a 3/22/87. Tonight's 9/7/73 is very good.
It's Monday night and the web page for this channel is not yet showing the 7
concerts that will be rotated out this week. It's nice to know what's coming ...
