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.
Grateful Dead Hour is on every Monday at 9am and 9pm (Eastern time) on gdradio.net.

I was listening to the GDH on XM last night and I thought it was supposed to be show number 980 last night[week of 7/2]but it was 979[wasn't any Dead on last nights show which was disappointing]weird that XM's a week off.
I saw my first show in Phoenix 3-5-94 (age 15), and was totally hooked- If that wasn't enough, I taped the next Dead hour which happened to be the Playin'>Uncle John's>Jam from Oakland 12-18-93... To this day one of the finest pieces of music I've ever heard, Dead or otherwise. I think I taped nearly every Dead hour for the next five years. I still have all those tapes.
Thank you David, I can't even begin to describe how much your show meant to me!
Inspirationally touching is how I would describe how it feels for me to listen to your show. I am still buying cassettes to record the Dead Hour onto (I only have a tape player in my car.)
You always seem to play real gems that spark an attentive ear. I appreciate your wide range of "Grateful Dead related Music." I find myself repeatedly enjoying new music you introduced into my life. Thanks for all you time and energy.
Interviews are also interesting, very whole for such a short show.
I am grateful to listen from the Lou on KDHX 88.1 Saturdays at 10 pm Central. And then anytime I want, if I was home to record...............
I had heard aboat Grateful Dead all youth,but I really did not payed them much attention.Why?I do not know,but now I think it is the coolest music ever!
DG said: You're still getting plenty of unreleased archival Grateful Dead - we're about to get started on the complete 4/15/89, spread out over several weeks of course.
izzie feels loved. more Brent - yay!
I appreciate your perspective, but of course yours is only one of many.
The mission of this program from the beginning has been to explore "the wide musical world of the Grateful Dead." I think it's important to cover what's going on today as well as what's great in the archive. Ratdog is sounding great these days, and they are happy to have their music featured on the radio, so I'm going to keep playing their stuff.

David, I love and appreciate all you do and have done for us over the years. If you recall, I came to your defense when some criticized you regarding the decision to remove the sdb's last year. I love your blog and your respect for and appreciation of the Dead's music and the entire scene. I look forward to and support with donations the GD Hour on Friday nights here in NYC on Fordham's radio station.
However, I have one gripe. It is the Grateful Dead Hour, not the Ratdog Hour. I do not know if I am the only one who feels this way, but I want to hear predominately (I agree not exclusively, I enjoy the occassional other music you provide) Grateful Dead music. While I recognize Bobby is doing great things with Ratdog, I tune in for the Grateful Dead. If I want to hear Ratdog I can go see them.
Thanks for listening and I miss Jerry.
And thanks for the heads up!!!!
“The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”
