Streaming the Dead in Iraq


I enjoy receiving emails from the listeners of Shakedown Stream. Emails from Streamers in different countries around the globe are especially fun. It is very touching when they come from places I least expect. For example...

"JER BEAR, 
 JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW IM LISTENING TO YOUR SHOW ALL THE WAY OUT HERE IN IRAQ, I BET THAT'S A FIRST! I DO MY BEST TO GET THE SHOW WHENEVER I HAVE ACCESS TO AN INTERNET SIGNAL LONG ENOUGH TO DOWNLOAD IT. MY FAVORITE DEAD TUNES ARE ALWAYS CHANGING, RIGHT NOW THEY ARE: ALHEA, GDTRFB, WEST LA FADE AWAY, BIG BOSS MAN, SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD, ONE MORE SATURDAY NIGHT, MORNING DEW, BLACK PETER, I'VE BEEN ALL AROUND THIS WORLD, AND 
> COMES A TIME. I USUALLY LISTEN TO THE SHOW WHEN I'VE GOT SOME DOWN TIME OUT HERE AND TOTALLY IMMERSE MYSELF IN THE MUSIC, CLEAR MY MIND OF MY CURRENT SURROUNDINGS, AND IMAGINE WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE IT MUST HAVE BEEN TO HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN AT THE SHOW! THE GRATEFUL DEAD ARE A PURE EXAMPLE A GREAT AMERICAN BAND. THE BOYS CREATED SOMETHING THAT COULD NEVER BE DUPLICATED AND WILL LIVE ON FOREVER. 
 KEEP ON DOIN WHAT YA DO JER BEAR!!! 
 GRADY J."
