The KPFA Grateful Dead Marathon will take place Saturday, February 3, 2001 from 9:00 am until 1:00 am. It will be webcast globally via DeadNet, with help from jamradio.com and Sonic Focus. The music for this year's marathon is shaping up nicely. Given the amount of stuff that's in circulation these days, it's hard to come up with things that no one has heard, but I think I have a few items that will impress the hardcore completists. Mostly, though, I'm just concentrating on making it a day full of great music, "collectible" or otherwise. You'll hear the complete concert of 5/26/77, which has never been in circulation in soundboard form; the complete 8/27/72, from a source other than the circulating "Betty board" tape; some rehearsal material from 1990, including a nice performance of "Good Night Irene"; and lots of great music -- complete sets and shorter pieces -- from all over the Dead's career. I have an hour or so of music recorded March 17, 1975 at Bob Weir's studio, during the making of "Blues for Allah," with Ned Lagin, grand and electric piano; Jerry Garcia, electric guitar; David Crosby, electric 12-string guitar; Phil Lesh, bass; and Bill Kreutzmann, drums. It was Ned's 27th birthday. Some pretty incendiary playing. This will be featured in the early evening on Marathon day. Ned will be in the studio to introduce the music and talk about his time with the Dead and other stuff, probably around 7:00 Pacific time. More Crosby action: in the afternoon, Steve Silberman will bring in the delightful "Kids and Dogs," a Jerry Garcia-David Crosby duet with multiple vocal overdubs by Croz; and we'll also feature several other Crosby-Dead collaborations. You can listen and pledge online at <http://www.kpfa.org>. KPFA broadcasts at 94.1 in northern California, and also through KFCF 88.1 in Fresno. Both <http://www.kpfa.org> and <http://www.kfcf.org> will have high-quality MP3 feeds. The main feed will be through SonicFocus: <http://www.sonicfocus.com/kpfa/>. There will be a live chat room at that site. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org -- I'll be online throughout the day and night. To pledge the old-fashioned way (and get a premium, such as the "Best of the Grateful Dead Hour" CD), call 510-848-5732 or 1-800-439-5732.

I attended plum's reading in Berkeley last week, and I bought a book, too! This is: good stuff.
Cynthia Dyer-Bennet (cdb) Wed 13 Feb 02 11:10
I'm looking forward to hearing her interview on WEST COAST LIVE (http://http://www.wcl.org/) I went to last Saturday's show, which was broadcast live from the Raven Theater in Healdsburg. Sedge Thomson is a lively, playful and articulate interviewer. This should be a great venue, Cynthia Heimel!

I was on West Coast Live about 6 years ago. It's a lot of fun! Have a ball! I thought it was especially fun meeting the other cool guests.... (For me, it was String Cheese incident!) They're also pretty good about archiving the shows.... <http://www.wcl.org/realaudio/WCL19960831.ram> I'm on from about the 40 minute mark on (as the Mystery Guest!) Nothing on your same scale, but I've got two book signings on the same day this weekend. 11 am Brown U. Bookstore, Providence, RI 2 pm Barnes and Noble Warwick, RI For more info, check my schedule webpage: <http://www.acmeclown.com/schedule.html>

Seattle but not Portland?! WTF is up with that???
David S. Greene (dsg) Tue 17 Sep 02 11:09
See, you don't have an MLB team. You need one of those.
pointy, but rarely undeservedly savage (vard) Tue 17 Sep 02 14:04
sure, rub it in. We don't have Sephora either, in case you hadn't heard.
Steve Bjerklie (stevebj) Wed 18 Sep 02 13:09
I don't think my daughter has heard that, <vard>. And when she does, she'll be out of Portland faster'n a Boggsie line drive. Sephora is the queen of her dreams (and the dark blot upon my credit card). <ohmy>, I'll be seeing you at the San Francisco reading. Let's talk a bit afterward if you've got the chance, eh?

Not quite a tour, sort of like an event... Starting January 30, author David Shenk will be joining us in Inkwell.vue to delve into the difficult and distressing subject of Alzheimer's, and to discuss his best-selling book, "The Forgetting -- Alzheimer's: Portrait of an Epidemic." If you want a preview of what we'll be talking about with David, check this out: On Wednesday evening, January 21, PBS will air "The Forgetting" -- a documentary on Alzheimer's inspired by author David's book of the same name. Of the documentary, David says, "It's a very powerful film that puts most of its focus on the experience of families dealing with Alzheimer's. There's also a taste of the history and a little bit of science woven in." It'll show at 10 p.m. Pacific Time on KQED, San Francisco, and will air again the following Sunday, January 25, at noon. The show airs on the east coast at 9 p.m. Eastern Time. For those of you in other time zones, check your local PBS schedules: http://www.pbs.org/tvschedules/

from revbilly.com The Rapture Interruptus Revival April 26 - May 1 In Northern California The fundamentalist plan "The Rapture" is now in progress. People are vanishing, yanked up into another world. These believers are disappearing into SUV's, idling between super malls. They believe, though, with the Playstations in their dashboards, that their Ford Expeditions are climbing straight up cliffs and jumping fjords and running with wolves. That's Heaven's final ad campaign: Consumers on pixilated interstates up Mount Everest. Those of us left behind will die in the Hell and rising Floods of the over-heating planet. Children, welcome to the The Rapture Interruptus Revival - we shall hit the Rapture right where it hurts. We shall slam the Rapture into Reverse. We shall sing "Stop Shopping" between the consumer and the car catching them in the Parking Lot Of No Return. We plan a new kind of performance art, a curving choreography designed for on-ramps. Exorcisms of Bad Traffic are now being taught in 24 hour all-night shifts at the Slow Consuming School of Divinity --WE RELY ON WORD OF MOUTH!
