Jerry plays pedal steel guitar and Phil sings harmony on “Looks Like Rain”!

Phil:”That’s Keith. He’s our new piano player. He’s been with us for quite a while now – part of the family, you might say. Actually, he’s our old piano player – we just didn’t know it for a long time.”

Very special thanks to Peter Brydon of Barlovento Chocolates. Peter was a printer before he was a chocolatier; he brought both of his products for us today: a mint -condition Jerry on Broadway poster that he printed in 1987 (which was already claimed for a $200 donation), and an assortment of his chocolates for the phone room staff. My favorite is the Venezuelan dark chocolate bar with Fleur de Sel! Please visit the Barlovento Chocolates web site and check out their story and their products.

  1. Bob Witcher says:

    kicked out of chat room again with a recurring error, will the GDHour chatroom be open?

  2. TR says:

    I hope so too. DNC can’t do things in “real time” Its easier to follow the conversations here much like using one of those instant messenger programs. and that wouls solve the problem, if we had a single host to post our comments…

  3. john says:

    gdhour chatroom is open… come join the fun!

  4. Paul Scotton says:

    Does anyone know if it is still possible to get Dick’s Pics as discs? All I see on the website is downloads. I’m ready to round out my collection and help David/KPFA but I’d much prefer to have discs.

  5. david says:

    I’m sure they are selling the discs. I haven’t checked the site and right now I am dealing with some major distractions, but I’m sure they are selling discs!

  6. Paul Scotton says:

    I guess #s 25 & 36 are available only as downloads. How about this, if anyone has those available in good condition and is willing to sell them to me, I’ll match the original price for them as a contribution to KPFA.

  7. IRENIE says:

    yay! yay! yay!
    for David and KFAY-AY-AY!

  8. oatmealbananaraisinchoclatechipcookie says:

    I had the pleasure to see wavy’s last birthday party show last year in SF w/ kimock, chris robinson, baby gramps, melvin seals, and Martin Fierro among tons of others. Man!!! Martin blew somehorn man, that guy is unbelievable…made me go back and listen to a ton of LOM, official releases and various other things. you gotta see him play if you haven’t.
    so…got any of my man martin at wavy’s show? or LOM? or even better…suprise me.

    -also any of that old sonic mash up stuff that david did would be cool, “make your $100 vow of faith NOW…it’s not to me…it’s to God”…sure.

    thanks everyone.

  9. Drew T says:

    Burns Valley sez, “Great shit, dude!”

  10. Paul Scotton says:

    re: Bush, Obama, and voting

    Amen David. Amen.

  11. JohnnyRider says:

    third time is the charm.

    that was a great Good Lovin!

    Looking forward to the big jam from the II set.

  12. katrinka says:

    Thanks for the High Time and Casey Jones (Jerry solo – working up the songs)

    omg , great china rider , from my second show,, jerrs rippin

  15. MAXROD says:

    sounds great here on the Isle of Staten…God Bless mentor and guiding force

  16. Richard in KC says:

    amazing day of music..

    thank you so much for doing what you do!

  17. Drew T says:

    This UJB is blowing us away. Thanks David!

  18. John Downunder says:

    Greetings again to all Deadheads from Sydney, Australia on a sunny Sunday afternoon. This is my 4th? Marathon and it’s great to part of a certain kind of global village. With all this talk of Deadheads for Obama – we have just changed our government to one which is on a much more human level, e.g. the new Parliament opens this week and there will be an official Government apology to our Aboriginal people for their suffering on Wednesday (Tuesday your time), something the previous rotten government refused to do for 12 years. Just as Howard & Bush were on the same conservative trip, so will PM Kevin Rudd and President Obama be kindred spirits on the liberal side of politics. But it’s time for you guys to do your half of the equation – so GET OUT AND VOTE! NO EXCUSES THIS TIME.

  19. Drew T says:

    Right on, mate, and good on you folks for dumping your clown. (Yeah, “clown” is putting it much too nicely, but I’ve used up my four-letter word allotment.)

  20. Paul says:

    Hey David. Great stuff. Just bought something from the GD online store but the invoice date says 2/10. This normal? Just want to make sure 10% goes to KPFA. Damn, just love this Sugaree. Thanks man!

  21. John Downunder says:

    Hi Drew. We had nearly 12 years of using old and inventing new 4 letter words for the “clown.” GWB called him “the man of steel” (which in Russian translates as “Stalin”! – how appropriate) but in the end, John Winston Howard lost his government, his party leadership, his Prime Ministership, and even his own seat in the House of Representatives (which has only happened once before to a PM). Let that be a lesson to the clowns in your White House!

    Isn’t this 1977 stuff great?!

  22. Drew T says:

    Hi right back atcha, John. I fear our current clowns will retire in comfort and oblivion — which is better than some posssible outcomes, but much less than they deserve.

    This whole day of music has been incredible. Hey David, let’s do this more often! (Ducking.)

  23. ilona says:

    Good work, David!!!

    I’m fading, and I have to be up early Sunday.

    Goodnight, and thank you!

  24. Peter T in Oakland says:

    Thanks for all of it, David; you’re nearly as amazing as the music. The Jerry home demos were a real treat, and there have been many memorable moments from the ’70s. Thanks also for the “Bluegrass Signal” plug; and, yes, you got the time and frequency correct! Onward …

  25. ike says:

    Great Marathon! Didn’t realize it was going on today but caught the tail end of it thanks to the stream. Thanks for all your hard work, David. You must have some idea of how much you’re appreciated by deadheads all around the world.
    Peace and love from South Korea!

  26. SIRMick says:

    Thanks for a Grate day of music David.

    I’m looking forward to listening to the archived sections that I couldn’t be there for live.
