KGNU Boulder/Denver Sponsors Deadhead Party in Denver

From Tie Dyes to Ties and Back: A Denver Grateful Dead Party for KGNU's $1390 for 1390 campaign!

Hi all,

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 deadhead@kgnu.org to reserve your space and for directions.

Twilight Zone or What??

Thanks for your quick reply David ...

I'm actually stunned by the sense of entitlement and all of the negativity ... the "All or Nothing" attitudes that have surfaced on the tapers section posts. It is interesting that some of the most venemous postings are from people stating that this goes against everything that this community stands for ... well, so do the assumptions, ultimatums and personal attacks that comprise these posts. It has been encouraging to also see some cooler heads prevail (such as yours). I guess it's natural to "assume" cause and effect, when a change w/no explanation occurs. ... I couldn't help but think of an old Twilight Zone episode ... life imitates art and vice versa!

Oh My God!! I only have a closet full of GD CDs and Cassettes !!! ... I guess I'll continue to listen to 'em while I await another official release to purchase!!!

Thanks again.

Keep it up and keep it spinning, Dave.

You and I are quite aware that longevity, necessitates that patience becomes a second natured virtue.

I'm glad I have all the wacky tunege one man needs on them 10 inchers that I can throw on the ol' 3340S there over my left shoulder when things get goofy in the ionosphere, or the new fangled fobs and knobs of today hit the rough patches in Glitch Road.

And in closing: I know you don't need to hear this, but much appreciation for this... here.

My hideout in the reeds of the all-encompassing pond of ether.

We'll know more soon

I'm in New Jersey mixing a CD this week, and I found out about this change Monday morning, the same time everyone else did. I don't have a lot of information at the moment, and it's not my place to make a public statement about it in any case, but I can assure you it's a good deal more complicated than it might appear.

I've been working with these people at Rhino and the new DeadNet for several months, and I believe they have great respect for the music and the community. It hurts me to read the violent and venomous posts I've seen from some people in these pages, although I can understand why folks are upset. I agree that it's a bummer the change was made abruptly and without explanation, but I trust that there is a reasonable explanation and we'll hear it soon.

Download or Stream? Not so merrily ...!!

Hello David,

I can't thank you enough for all the deadication you've shown these past decades with the GD Hour and books and music ...
I'm a fan!!

So, what's up with the GD Hour podcast? Is it now a thing of the past after it barely got started? I was so happy that I could finally(?) give up all of the cassettes that have piled up over the years in place of these digital files. There are some pretty ugly things being written over on the taper's section ... And there has been no clear answer as to whether or not this is a policy change with the site or simply a technical glitch due to the new streaming software.

Do you have any answers? Any light you can shed on this situation would be greatly appreciated.

Either way, keep up the great work!

Sorry about that.

Taking the GD Hour off XM was part of the deal Rhino made with Sirius. I had no say in the matter.

I'm sorry to have abandoned you over there, but it appears the two satellite services will merge before too long and then we'll all be together in the stratosphere.

I heard last night that XM

I heard last night that XM won't be carrying the Grateful Dead Hour anymore......taking it away from XM was a boneheaded move imho. Whoever made the decision to move it needs to rethink that idiotic decision imho.

Old GD Hour podcast on DeadNet

The beautiful new DeadNet today introduces a new weekly feature: podcasts from the Grateful Dead Hour archive.

Analise Dubner created a beautiful image for the landing page.

First up is program #793, the first of a four-part series featuring an interview with Steve Parish on the occasion of the publication of his memoir, Home Before Daylight.

There will be a place for comments and requests - I'll be very happy to get input on which programs from GD Hour history you'd like to hear. You can search the GD Hour log archive here and/or here.
