Listen to the river sing sweet songs...

Greybeards and newbies alike will appreciate the music on Saturday, February 3, when David Gans hosts the annual KPFA Grateful Dead Marathon from 10 am to 1 am Pacific time:

KPFA webcasts all the time, and so does our simulcast station KFCF. For the Marathon, we'll also be carried by nugs.net for maximum global bandwidth.

Live music by The Waybacks (at around 4pm pst); other surprise guests may appear.

Music will include some classic unreleased live Grateful Dead (natch!); an April 1986 performance by Kingfish with Bob Weir; Bob Weir and Ratdog from the fall of 2006 (which we'll be offering as a premium for those who contribute to the station); musical highlights and interviews from the American Beauty Project, a tribute concert that took place in New York January 20 and 21; and various other rarities, interviews, etc.

We'll have a 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.

For those who want even more: archives of Gans' weekly Dead to the World radio show are now available.
