KPFA marathon thanks and links

The January 31 KPFA marathon playlist is posted here. Thanks to all who contributed to KPFA, hung out in the chat room, came to the station to take pledges – and those who weren’t able to give to KPFA but listened to the music and contributed to the vibe.

You can still contribute to KPFA, of course. Take a look at this page and see the huge list of thank-you gifts.

Thanks to:

Josh Troy, Ben Trask, Jason Spitz, Rich Mahan, and Mary Eisenhart at Rhino/DeadNet for their invaluable assistance in making the day a success.

Phone room supervisors Allison Rolls and Joseph Maurer, for keeping it together all day and into the night.

  1. Thanks David for mentioning my children’s book Grateful Dead What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been. I enjoyed the interview, and I hope many people pledged.

  2. Marc Evans says:

    As always David, thank you for your time and deadication. The 15-hours seemed to fly by this year and this certainly was in no small part because of the excellent job provided by you and all others involved. It is always a privilege and a pleasure to be able to participate and I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be of service to our community.

    We’ll see you againe next year, if not sooner.
