    Grateful Dead Hour no. 354

    Week of July 3, 1995

    Grateful Dead/Pink Floyd
    BRICKSHAKE #7

    Grateful Dead 8/1/94 The Palace at Auburn Hills MI
    LIBERTY


    August 1, 1994 was Jerry Garcia's 52nd birthday. I have a vague recollection of a playing card-themed backstage pass or maybe some other party favor...

    "Brickshake #7" is a piece of digital audio art that sort of shuffles the Grateful Dead's studio recording of "Shakedown Street" (from the album of the same name) and Pink Floyd's "Just Another Brick in the Wall" together like a deck of cards. I've done other pieces along these lines, including one that combines seven or eight different artists' performances of "Hard to Handle." I call the art form "Mutilaudio," and you can hear more examples at https://www.dgans.com/mutilaudio/ .

    You can browse and/or search the Grateful Dead Hour program logs on the show's home page, gdhour.com. Let us know if there's a particular show you'd like to hear, and feel free to post requests and comments here or by email to gdhour [at] dead.net

Alright! Another one of my favorite GDH shows from long ago. I played this tape over and over the night Jerry died. A few months later, I accidentally erased it, yikes. Beautiful "Stella Blue", one of the best I ever heard. Also love that "Liberty". Thanks!

thanks for the killer 94 digital dead....those card themed "party favors" sound interesting...i can just picture a little 1cm X 1cm "postage stamp" (lol) with playing card themes on them...the art on most of those little stamps is gallery worthy...the ones that wern't licked that is....saw many themes in my day..my favorite being a wolf howling at the moon...then having phil sing "just like tom thumb's blues" at the same show...."steal your voice and leave you howling at the moon"! thanks again dave for getting these GDH shows up and archived on dead.net! look foward to next week!

http://www.deadlists.com/posters/1990s/19940801.html Re: the music here, I still can't get the streaming to work, but this week's selection got me curious about 8/1/94, a show I'd never heard before, so I downloaded the corresponding parts of the audience recording that's on archive.org. I'm sure it sounds better in the version in this GD Hour, but however you listen to it, it's real nice stuff. I love the jam leading into Watchtower. I'm a big fan of Drums/Space in the '90s, and this bit of Space is a perfect example of why.

Hey David Gans, these last few weeks have really been my first exposure to your radio program because of my remote location (the Cascade Mountain foothills of Oregon) I can turn on my radio receiver and not get any station or signal.Now, that I have downloaded or streamed the 6 or 7 installments posted on this site over the last few weeks, I can honestly say i have become a respecting fan. The Steve Parish interview was completly amazing and this weeks installment (I'm mid Stella Blue now) has me emotional with joy. Truly Great Radio ! Thank you for your hard work,imagination, incredible memory recall and innovations. Peace On Earth, JurassicBlueberries

David G: Amidst my harsh criticism of the business practices of the site operator, I DID NOT mean you any disrespect. You have been a champion of the cause and have brought a lot of fine music that none of us would have ever had the ability to hear. I am in Philly and have diligently recording your show to HiFi VHS and have quite a collection that is played regularly once transferred to CD, Thanks again for the music.

That totally sounds like those tapes I used to make at home with an old tape deck and record player when I was 12. I would patch together snippets of songs, usually the weird parts, into one long piece. I imagine if I had continued to do it with today's technology, it might sound something like yours. Maybe I should revisit it and send you a sample. You might get a kick out of it. Alas, those childhood tapes are long gone. we all shine on

Cutting tape is a venerable composition technique going back to the '40s. And William Burroughs was noted for it, too. Big fun! GD Hour blog Station list

Hiya David, JurassicBlueberries.com is the name of my oregon domiciled "cyber-blueberry nursery", where I propagate, grow and distribute 11 varities of Vaccinium corymbosum, grown in the fertile mckenzie river valley of western oregon. my customers include, roof top gardens in new york city, air conditioned green houses in the mojave desert, even select citizens of lush, green mount tam that desire to grow their own and "stuff their faces" with high quality fresh blueberries. Again, I would like to thank you for what you do, as my blueberries and I require sunshine, rain, acidic soil and fresh grateful dead music in order to thrive and grow. please let me know if you have space,time and the desire to grow a free specimen, as I would be thrilled to send you a plant or two to start your own "jurassicblueberries garden". peace on earth, love and massive JurassicBlueberries

My wife is the farmer in the family. This year we've got several varieties of tomatoes, plus the usual herbs, figs, and two lemon trees that are never without ripe fruit for her cooking needs. I'll ask her if she thinks blueberries would work here in Oakland. We eat tons of 'em here, fresh when they're in season and frozen the rest of the time. GD Hour blog Station list

I agree w/David.Tell us about Blueberries please! I have two plants here that are not doing too well, and would love to hear tips from an expert! ie: water, sun, planting season.

Greetings all,My suggestion for planting northern highbush blueberries in the bay area would be wait till October when the plants are dormant. Prepare the planting area by digging out a 2’wide X 1’ deep hole my best advice is to plant the bare root bush with a 50% mix of your native soil mixed with 50% Peat moss (found at any organic supply shop or home store) pine needles or rotting sawdust also work in a pinch (all varieties of Blueberry plants are acid loving) During the first year as the plants become established it will be important to not let them dry out during the dry months so provide ample water. Each spring leaves come, followed by flowers, followed by berries; sun, and water during this time is important for berry production (so water at least weekly). The best spot to plant your berries is an area that gets lots of morning sunshine and perhaps a little relief from that late afternoon, early evening high heat. Blueberry plants have small root zones, enjoy good drainage and don’t like to be crowded by other plants. All of my northern highbush cultivars are self pollinating but much prefer to be cross pollinated by at least one other variety. The bay area’s biggest challenge is winter chilling hours (these are hours where temps are below 45 degrees) needed for berry production. I typically suggest plants with lower chilling hour requirements for best results and yields. If you have blueberry plants already and they are not producing well (I suggest putting them “on the bus” and providing them with more Acid in their soil (peat , pine needles, sawdust) and always remember to stay away from the “Brown Acid”. Additionally there is no need to chemically fertilize or spray your plants with chemical pesticides ever. Pass here and go, you are on the road to “blueberry heaven“.
