I've been hosting a weekly GD two-hour radio show for over ten years, and I'd like to share the set lists here, but I see that the forum has been locked. Why is that?
Sixteen hours of Grateful Dead, an unreleased Jerry Garcia Band concert, and some fresh rehearsal recordings from Ratdog! Plus a live performance by David Nelson, Eric Thompson, et al. Broadcast live on KPFA (94.1 in Berkeley) and KPFK (90.7 in Los Angeles), and webcast via nugs.net, gdradio, KPFA, and KPFK.
Berkeley’s pioneering listener-supported radio station, KPFA, presents its annual Grateful Dead fund-raising marathon on Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 9:00 am to 1:00 am PST. Host David Gans promises a bounty of unreleased and previously-unheard music by the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, and related artists. There will be a live performance (musicians TBA) from the KPFA studio. THe marathon will be webcast on kpfa.org, nugs.net, and gdradio.net
RIght now we're auctioning off some wonderful photographs (and an opportunity to become a chocolatier for a day!). Bidding is open now, and the auctions end on February 6. Please take a look at the items and place your bids in the comments section of each post.
Years ago my local radio station skipped over the GDhour show, which featured 5-17-77 end of first set. A top High Time in my opinion. I had recorded the other portions and was looking forward to that show because of the Sunrise and High Time. I missed out, but emailed him and he replied & eventually I got a copy of that program in the mail. Kind of funny, this is the first time I used this forum to post a comment and when I was checking my GDRadio app on my itouch, guess what show is playing right now 5-17-17 thanks again. You provided many enjoyable Sunday nights in Columbus, Ohio for me.
Really looking forward to the Atlanta show clips from 1990...thanks for that, & everything you do to keep the great recorded memories alive !!
BTW, here is the current station list with broadcast days and times for the show.
If you can't get it on the air, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Ill tell you how you can hear it online.
Those are scheduled for August 7, 14, 21, and 28. Enjoy!
Looking forward to a return posting soon of the Grateful Dead 4/3/90 concert segments. GD Hour #'s 762, 763, 764 & 765 ! A nice show at the old Omni in Atlanta, GA.; Always enjoy the wonderful magic you replay for us in the time capsules found here on the GD Hour, Mr. dgans !!
