Grateful Dead Marathon

From the Grateful Dead Hour:

Annual KPFA Grateful Dead marathon! - Saturday, January 28, 2006, 9 am to 1 am Pacific time - sixteen hours of fun! Webcast via nugs.net, kpfa.org, and kfcf.org.

As reported earlier, the anual KPFA GD marathon is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 9 am to 1 am PST.
We’ll have live performances from the Papermill Creek Rounders (David Nelson, Banana, and friends) in the afternoon and Bob Weir and Ratdog in the evening.
I’ve got some uncirculated GD concerts to play in their entirety, and a lot of very special treats that I’m sure you’ve never heard before. Here are some clues:

A tuba solo
Jerry playing “Sweet Georgia Brown”
Brent Mydland solo
Phil Lesh talking about “The Ivesian Stretch” (Okay, this is a rerun from
A studio recording of “Man Smart, Woman Smarter.”

The event will be webcast via nugs.net, kpfa.org, and kfcf.org

Marc Evans will moderate a chat room, as he has for the last several years, and I will post on this blog as the day progresses.

We’re still in the process of lining up thank-you gifts for contributors. We’re expecting a nice array of CDs, books, t-shirts, and who knows what else. I have a copy of the 10-CD Fillmore West 1969 boxed set that we’ll be auctioning - not sure yet how that’ll work. I might set it up on eBay with a closing date of January 28.

I have gotten word that Bob Weir and Ratdog will be unable to appear on the KPFA marathon due to an injury suffered by keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. I’ll leave it to the Ratdog organization to reveal the details of Jeff’s situation.
We still have the Papermill Creek Rounders (David Nelson, Banana, and their friends) playing live during the broadcast, and we’ll have some Ratdog recordings from their fall tour.
