    Inadvisable edit on Sirius
    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.

    9/7/73 Nassau
    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.

    Background Music During Today in Grateful Dead History Intro...
    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
    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 The GD channel is the bomb but the Sirius/XM tech is out of date, think Pandora has it on them.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

    Thoughts on Sirius sound quality
    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

Shares of Sirius/xm rose 3 cents yesterday and are now at 13 cents a share. They need someone to refinance their debt to keep them out of bankruptcy.

Liberty Media Corp. will lend Sirius/xm $530 million dollars. It also says S/xm has 20 million subscibers which means they should be bringing in, if I'm correct, over $200 million per month. I wonder why they can't get by on that? Could someone inform me?

I've posted this before, but have not seen any responses. Does anyone else have a problem with serius not posting schedules for three times a day concerts on their Grateful Dead site? Spotty at best,most of the time it's not posted. REALLY HARD to do this ,I guess.Makes it really difficult to record shows we've been at or might want because it was a great show.Lots of posts about their financial state, but none about the lack of service we get? W.T.F.? Oly- bob

I contacted David Gans and have gotten a lil brainchild of mine to come to fruition...The "Tales" on March 8th will be a special on the subject of GD Tribute bands keeping the vibe alive and well...plus turning countless post-Jerry era fans onto the magic and love of The Grateful Dead (like myself)...this particular "Tales" will include interviews with Jimmy Tebeau-founder of "The Schwag" as well as some samples of their tunes....The Schwag hold summerlong camping festivals in a beautiful campground located in Salem, MO featuring all types of great music and of course shows by The Schwag....lots of vendors...LOTS of LOVE! So yeah, tune in this Sunday and enjoy! The torch is still burning brightly and there are masses new fans being turned on due to these tribute bands...Now Gans is even on the lineup for "Springjam" April 17+18! He's gonnaq experience the beauty firsthand...plus we'll get to hear him jam....NRPS is gonna be there, so is Donna Jean...in May Billy Kreutzman is gonna be there too...i encourage any/all to come check it out...visit www.theschwag.com for further details....Stu Allen from JGB with Melvin Seals is now on lead guitar for The Schwag....his Jerry vocals are fantastic....sounds just like late 80's-90's Jerry! Check it out...and tune in to the Tales From The Golden Road on March 8th! -pugdog "In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head. Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul."

I hope our buddies at Sirius are doing well. I'm wondering if they are going to turn us on to some live Dead. I think a Madison Square Garden show would be worthy of a broadcast through-out the world and across the universe, maybe a Shoreline too!

Loved the Tipper Gore interview after she jammed with The Dead the other night. While they were doing the interview Bobby comes by and they start talking and Tipper starts a rap about the spiritual side of drumming and Bobby's like "I've heard That before", and then "I'm gonna go get a drink". Hilarious!

and thanks for the live Worchester show. My only complaint is that everything was turned up a couple clicks higher than the drum mix and there wasn't enough thunder, esp. on songs like Terrapin. As for the show, I thought One More Sat. Nite and a little four minute Johnny B. Goode encore was a disturbingly lame way to end the show. I know $100 to the boys holds about as much value as a penny does to the rest of us and they cannot understand the sacrifices their fans have had to make to attend these shows. But overall I thought they sounded pretty good and their were some very enjoyable moments.

If the Dead want to play One More Saturday Night I wish they would try doing it as a first or second set opener. I hate it when they close the show with it cause when you here the opening notes you know the show is over and then start hoping they'll play a good encore. As for Johnny B. Goode, if it's not a part of a 2- song encore, don't bother !

I keep going to Sirius and there's a spot that says to "watch this space for info on upcoming broadcasts" but there's never anything there and nothing to click on. I know the Spectrum is coming up Sat. I hope I didn't miss any other shows. What am I doing wrong????

... on Mondays at 9:00 PM Eastern time? Why can't we have the complete and uncut concerts back in that time slot? Sirius advertised that there would be 3 concerts per day. Now for some reason on Mondays we only get 2 concerts. Haven't these Guest DJ shows been rerun about 10 times anyway? I never understood why they decided to use the scheduled concert time for these DJ shows... Is help on the way David, or or will changing this be a slipknot of towering confusion? Thank you for your consideration in this matter... :^ )

the storyteller makes no choice... Howdy, I'm happy to say that my very own "Head Set" airs tomorrow (7/3) on the G.D. channel on Sirius/XM! I read short sections from my new book, Growing Up Dead: The Hallucinated Confessions of a Teenage Deadhead, and put together some other intros to accompany the tunes. All the songs are from shows between 1987-1989. The show airs tomorrow (7/3) at 5PM EST. For Sirius/XM subscribers, the Grateful Dead channel is #32... but if you're here, you already know that... Cheers, Peter

is in error... Was supposed to be 8-16-91, and the first was played as advertised. The problem is that they played the second set of 8-18-91. Is there any way to straighten this out before the replay on FRIDAY, AUG 21st at Noon Eastern Time? Thank you very much for any help, in advance! I would try to contact Sirius myself, but they are just a bit less than say, responsive...

I think Sirius responds to things written on Deadnet with songs. There have been a lot of times I've written something here and then a short time later will here a song on Sirius that seems directly related to my post and it seems like it's happened way to many times to be coincidence. I also think Ratdog and the Dead have been inspired to play a song in their sets a couple times from what I've written here. I'm sure they won't tell me though being the Pranksters that they are. Maybe it's just sirius synchronicity and strange coincidence but I like to think they're listening.

I enjoyed tonight's show, as usual. I appreciated the insights about muscians "borrowing", "stealing", "Interpreting" other artists' songs, styles, etc. This is what truly keeps the music alive, isn't it? I was especially touched by the idea that everything a muscian gleans and absorbs from other artists through research, playing or listening to their music contributes - over time - to that muscian's own voice and style as an artist. I can't think of a better example of this than Jerry Garcia, who was a true music academic - ever seeking, exploring and learning his craft. PS: Can't wait till Furthur on the East Coast!

If there's any way you can get the new Furthur song,Welcome to the Dance, into the rotation that would be nice. I hope there is a chance of a live New year's eve broadcast, or maybe a new years day re'broadcast if live ain't gonna work. Till we all fall down It'll do you fine

I can wait. From what I've heard so far, the drummers sound good, Jeff has impressed me,very enjoyable. As for John's guitar, I've found myself cringing way too much. I hope the boys can teach him a few things so I don't feel like I'm listening to a amateur copy-cat who needs to find his own musical, oh I don't know, "soul"? I hope by the time they hit the west coast I can say I've heard a vast improvement. Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you care?
