Grateful Dead Marathon!!!

I was just bloggin' 'bout it, but David Gans wants everyone to tell their friends about the Grateful Dead Marathon on KPFA on Saturday. And I don't want to let David down...

Over @ his GD Hour log blog, he said:

Do me a favor - please let your friends know about the annual KPFA Grateful Dead marathon this Saturday, 10 am to 1 am pacific time. The more listeners we have, the better it’ll be for KPFA. This is a fund-raiser for America’s first listener-sponsored radio station. It’s also the station where I do a two-hour program every week called Dead to the World, and where we get to present live music absolutely free several times a year.

The details are posted on DeadNet, but I’ll repeat them here:

The annual KPFA Grateful Dead marathon takes place this coming Saturday, February 3, from 10 am to 1 am pacific time.

We’ll have live music from the Waybacks, and possible surprise guests.

Broadcast live on KPFA 94.1 fm in Northern California and KFCF 88.1 in Fresno CA

Featured will be unreleased music from the Grateful Dead archive (with thanks to David Lemieux); highlights from a benefit show 4/28/86 with Bob Weir and Kingfish et al; highlights from the recent “American Beauty Project” show in New York City; new music from Wake the Dead; and more.

Playlist and program notes will be updated as the day progresses right here at

Live chat room hosted by Marc Evans:
Many parties have contributed gifts for those who pledge support for KPFA, the nation’s first listener-sponsored radio station. Featured premium will be Grateful Dead Live at the Cow Palace, New Year’s Eve 1976, just released by Rhino Records.
