A number of years ago, David Gans interviewed me on his Grateful Dead Hour radio show, asking me to talk about audience tapes, and the Wall of Sound in particular. We played and talked about the Dillon Stadium 1974 AUD, one of my favorite tapes (just waiting in the wings for an upcoming review here). Well, my luck continues..
I figured that most of the GDLG readership would be interested in knowing that their trusty DeadListening tour guide, icepetal, is going to be featured on the radio this weekend. I was invited to appear on “Bring Out Your Dead,” the weekly Psychedelic/Dead-based 2 hour radio show that broadcasts on East Village Radio, a live 24/7 streaming radio station based in New York City. The show airs each week in the late night hours each Saturday (okay, very early Sunday morning) from 2AM – 4AM EST. And fear not, they also provide podcasts of all shows, so you can download, or even subscribe (as I do) via iTunes or your favorite player and listen whenever you want.
This week’s show will feature Grateful Dead music that I handpicked for the evening, and a mid-broadcast interview with the show’s weekly host, Jeff Conklin. We pre-recorded the show last night. In the interview Jeff asked me about how I got started down the path of collecting shows and transferring masters in the late 90’s, the history of archive.org, and Dead shows in general. You can hear why I generally prefer writing over speaking as I rewrite history, misrepresent old tapers I’ve known, and cloud the facts for a good 15 minutes or more on the air. A great time was had by all! :-)
You can check out the upcoming play list for this weekend’s show (September 20, 2008), and get set up for the podcast at the Bring Out Your Dead home page. The podcast will be available as quickly as 10 minutes after the show finishes up at 4AM, Sunday morning.
