    Hey David, just wanted to check in. Listening to the show. Fun so far!

  2. Brendan Riley says:

    Hey David, what’s the best show played by Reconstruction? Have a great Marathon! Keep up the great work. Been listening to this for many years since 1986.

  3. Laura says:

    In years past, I’ve encouraged relatives and friends, who like the Dead but aren’t card-carrying Deadheads, to listen to the marathon. They’ve all subsequently commented that they listened for awhile and didn’t hear much, if any, Grateful Dead.
    I haven’t heard any Dead since early this morning. Plenty of nice music, but not really what I’d call a GD marathon.
    No offense. Love you. See you later.

  4. Jeff Strahl says:

    The 10/29/73 Other One is OUTSTANDING!

    And thanks for the 9/16/89 Jerry Band show, wasn’t anywhere near there, but in Yosemite, celebrating my 42nd birthday, fun to hear a Jerry Band show from that date for the first time.

  5. Jeff Strahl says:

    Hmm, posted this earlier but disappeared.

    The 10/29/73 Other One is OUTSTANDING.

    And finally i got to hear a Jerry Band show played on my birthday, i.e. the 9/16/89, thanks.

  6. The Other One says:

    Stream coming though loud and clear here in Bahrain. Thanks for doing this David. The KPFA GD Marathon is like the Super Bowl on the Deadhead calendar! : )

  7. Hi David, loving the tradition of these marathons, and on a rainy day!
    Thanks always!

    Hi –

    I saw a real good show in Dec ’78 in Nashville – drove all nite from Austin.
    Joani Walker was there w/ few friends hauling in her equipment half concealed under coats. They were front row. I met her – called her later – she sent me a great tape w/ some bonus stuff. Nice lady.

    What a party, with the in studio band – you all sounded like you were having fun….
