A Streamer's Choice

Our theme for next month starts us off on the right note. It is "A Streamer's Choice!" That's right - the tables have turned from last month's Jer Bear's Choice. Now you are all on the Hot Seat.  Your vote will pick the featured show every week in January of 2011. What a perfect way to start the New Year - give the deadicated listeners of Shakedown Stream the ability to direct the Stream.  

Every week, go to ShakedownStream.blogspot and vote for the Grateful Dead show of your choice. I will put together a group of shows for your voting pleasure from a particular tour. For example, next week select a show from April of '82. The show that receives the most votes by Monday afternoon will be the featured show.

This week ...

Shakedown Stream this week continues with the Jer Bear's Choice theme. It is an opportunity to look for live Grateful Dead material in those hard to find places on the shelf. I have been choosing live shows that are incomplete and would never make it as a "featured show" on Shakedown Stream. I am clearing the shelf before we start the new year. 

  • Also in the news, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart sat in with Sammy Hagar this last Saturday night for a holiday benefit show in their backyard - Mill Valley, CA.  
  • Billy K and the 7 Walkers are on tour and played in New York City this past weekend.
  • Phil & Bobby's Furthur are gearing up for their New Year's shows in San Francisco, CA.   
  • Peace - Jer Bear

Jer Bear's Choice

December is Jer Bear's Choice month. 

As we come to the end of the Year and 

cycle through another rotation around 

the Earth, I will look through various 

odds & ends from some of 

those hard to reach places in my Dead 

collection. There is so much live material from the 

Grateful Dead that is incomplete, but, does not get much 

attention. Therefore, we will suspend the "featured 

show" format and explore those live Dead tidbits for

December. It is a time for us to reflect on our lives 

and connect with our loved ones, dear family & 

friends, but also listen to some Dead stuff from 

those hard to reach places.
