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!)

Track info

I have been fighting the good fight about track info since Day One. Problem is, all he different receivers handle that info differently and it's not possible to make all the information available to all sets.

Still working on it.

I can't explain the repetition of Keller's Loose Lucy :^) but I like it too!

DITTO

GADEADHEAD & Ted (hey that sounds like a great duo - you guys should think about hitting the road together! hahheeee)....

I agree - it'd be awesome to see WHERE & WHEN these wonderful selections were played. ALSO - as cool as Keller is, I've heard his version of "Loose Lucy" twice in the last 2 days...sheeesh... ;)

You still da MAN, Mr. Gans - hope to play w/ you again sometime soon!!

Amen Ted

Although I am thrilled that the GD channel is finally on XM, I sure wish the date and venue would be listed as each song is played. (XM unit and on line player)

Hang in there Sirius XM

Yesterday's KC Star business section indicates finances are tight for the merged satellite radio company. Regarding either on-line service, it would be GRATE to have the date of the song playing, in addition to the name of the song. My portable Sirius unit picks up the date.....

ratdog show

I missed the live broadcast of Ratdog cause the day of the show Sirius kept announcing that a Dead show was coming and not the dog. was all set for the re-broadcast last night and instead they play a Dead show. finally been listening to it this morning, Crazy Fingers was good. It's good I wasn't near a computer last night. S.O.F.
