Hey Now...

Not sure where to put this, but I stumbled on this interview with Jerry from '87, thought I'd share a link. Enjoy...

I'm really enjoying the GD

I'm really enjoying the GD channel on XM . It's just about the only good thing that has come out of the merger of the two services. I like the Today in GD history segment and I am sooo happy that there are no DJ's on the channel. Most of the Sirius channels that were put on my XM radio detract from the service as whole with yapping DJ's telling you to upgrade your radio subscription package. These pitches to get you to upgrade can range from annoying to obnoxious. At least on the GD channel, it's just about the music.

feedback

I don't see the "Feedback" emails. If you emailed me directly, I apologize for not answering.

I wish I knew what to tell you. Sirius XM doesn't seem to be very good at putting information online.

concert listings on sirius

I can't seem to find a reliable source for concert listings on the Grateful Dead channel on the sirius Dead site .Sometimes it's there, but most of the time it's not, makes it difficult to set up a deck for recording.I've asked David Gans via feedback but no reply.Is there an alternative place for this info?Any help would be much appreciated.

Re-Upped

I had let my XM subscription lapse until Sirius bought them out. Of course, as soon as I found out that there was a GD station, I started it back up, and have NO regrets. Now I don't have to rely on my iPod all of the time. Don't get me wrong, you can fit a shitload of Dead on an iPod, but it's the gems, and the mix, that makes the station work so well. Now all is well on my daily commute.

Live DJs

The decision was made before I came on board, but I think it's a reasonable one. Let the music speak for itself most of the time.

Thank you DG!

Thanks for the reply David. Hey - sure hope you make it back to Pittsburgh sometime. We had a lot of fun playing after your show at the Thunderbird. Maybe next time you'll sit in w/ us? Hmmmm???? ;)

Take care and keep them sweet tunes a-crankin' on my XM!! MORE 80s STUFF!!! (HUGE Brent fan, right here!)
