Right now, Grateful Dead Hour, # 363.....Knockin' on Heaven's Door..........
As the days and years go by, the ripples keep on splashing on our faces as we slip into the river.
Thank you Jerry, Bob, Phil, Billy, Mickey, Donna, Keith, Brent, Pig, Vince and sometimes Bruce. And thank you Mr, Gans for bringing this very special moment in time back to us.
Tonight's the night (4/2/2008)! WNCW's "Jar of Jam" fundraiser hits the airwaves tonight starting at 9PM Eastern (8 Central, 7 Mountain, 6 Pacific). David Gans' Grateful Dead Hour is followed by WNCW's own Dead Air (10PM - 2AM Eastern) and Cousin IT's Boot Shoppe.
Please call (800) 245-8870 during GDH or go online after 10 PM Eastern at http://secure.publicbroadcasting.net/wncw/pledge.pledgemain to support WNCW and it's deep commitment to the music of the Grateful Dead.
Let us know you're out there listening. Please join WNCW and keep the Jar of Jam opened up and satisfying your appetite each Wednesday night. Your support of WNCW's programming will help keep The Dead alive on the airwaves and streaming on the Internet.
Tune in, turn on, but don't drop out. Public radio - and WNCW Spindale - need you.
I was listening via KBCS (91.3fm in Seattle area) and heard the recent Bob/Phil/Mickey show. Your audience copy was a bit better than the one I found and I wanted to thank you for airing that.
Politics, shmolitics, they played some really wonderful music that night.

Greetings from Spindale, NC (Hub of the Known Universe),
I couldn't help but notice that A) WNCW's long-running, locally-produced, Wednesday night Grateful Dead music program (also named Dead Air, oddly enough) doesn't seem to be represented on the Grateful Dead radio forums and B) since I don't seem to be able to create a new forum (can someone contact me on how rectify that?), I'm hopeful our friend David Gans won't mind me intruding upon his forum to mention its existence and our upcoming pledge drive.
As WNCW's General Manager, I feel a "slight" obligation to do so. Please forgive me.
WNCW's Wednesday night GD programming kicks off at 9PM Eastern with David's The Grateful Dead Hour, which leads into four hours (10PM - 2AM Thursday) of Dead Air with longtime host, Uncle Dave, bringing you the finest Dead he can lay his hands on, as well as music from other bands that keep the spirit of the Dead alive.
If I was to lead you to believe that my posting of this information had nothing to do with the fact that WNCW's Spring on-air/online pledge drive starts next Sunday morning (and runs through Saturday, April 5th), I'd be lying. WNCW is proud to keep the music of the Dead on its airwaves (and streaming online) and looks forward to the enthusiastic support of Grateful Dead fans worldwide. We hope you'll tune in weekly and show your support of not only David Gans' Grateful Dead Hour, but also the four hours of Grateful Dead music (Dead Air) that follow. Whether you pledge online at http://secure.publicbroadcasting.net/wncw/pledge.pledgemain or give us a call between 3/31 and 4/5 at (800) 245-8870, we'd love to add your name to the growing list of those who support WNCW and hope to keep the music of the Grateful Dead - and the music they spawned - alive and well both on-the-air and online.
Thank you for the opportunity to bring this to your attention. We now return you to your regularly scheduled forum postings, which are already in progress.
Tune in, turn on, but don't drop out. Public radio needs you.
I'm still working on the plan for #1000.
Program #999 will be a sampling of CD projects I've had the privilege of working on - GD and Garcia boxed sets, the Persuasions' GD album, etc.
Program #1000 will include a wonderful interview with Mickey Hart, talking about the early days of GD music. Not sure what else yet.
I remember it when it was in SINGLE DIGITS....
It's coming up here soon. What can we expect? Spill the beans, man (<;) C'mon!
What special treats are in store with this momentous installment?
Yes, it's just a big round number- but we love big round numbers!
The first GDH w/ 4 digits.................... EVER!
From Tie Dyes to Ties and Back: A Denver Grateful Dead Party for KGNU's $1390 for 1390 campaign!
I'm a Denver Deadhead who wears a tie to work but still has tie dyes in my closet... I'm also a Board member on KGNU. We host the Grateful Dead hour each Saturday at 7:00 pm (hear us anywhere at www.kgnu.org, 88.5FM Boulder, 1390 AM Denver). Our recent expansion into Denver inspires this party! And by the way, we'll have a six-hour Dead special during our membership drive Saturday evening, October 20.
So come to my party to meet local Deadheads, learn about KGNU and the Dead, enjoy some microbrews, finger foods and a special brew from Amsterdam. I'll even cut off your tie if you'd like. My whole family room will have rare Dead artwork on the walls. Bring your favorite noncommercial Dead concert recordings so we can put together a collection of 20 Dead CDs for anyone who pledges their support for the $1390 for 1390 campaign (that's $58/month over two years). Bring a towel for a dip in our 8-person hot tub after dusk.
Thursday, October 25 56:30-8:30 pm in southwest Denver. Phone 303-895-5937 or email email@example.com to reserve your space and for directions.
