Streaming in Scotland

We have a friend and fellow streamer from Scotland. Check out what he had to say in his email to Jer Bear - the host of mvyradio's Grateful Dead show "Shakedown Stream" 

Jer Bear,
Discovered the Stream June of this year - pick up the podcasts here in Scotland. Love the length and the comments by your good self. You are basically my soundtrack to the weekend.

Saw Grateful Dead in England (Bickershaw Festival) in 1971 or 1972, in Edinburgh around 1980 and again at Wembley Arena England 1990. Still a few Deadheads in this part of the world

Thanks for keeping it going.

Paradise Waits in 1984

The featured show this week on Shakedown Stream is the 2nd night of a three night run at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. Last week, we enjoyed the 1st night - Friday the 13th with a full moon with a Dark Star encore - How Sweet It Was! WE go forward to the next night with a Help>Slip>Franklin's 2nd set opener and special guest Matt Kelly on harmonica. 

This show does not receive great reviews, but may reflect some tiredness from Jerry and the Boys from the night before. However, we are still in the Scarlet>Fire - Help>Slip>Franklin's - China>Rider reverie this month. 

What kind of deadhead are you? 

A real truth is never based on facts or labels anyway. The Truth is a plural - ongoing changing thing. The conversation continues to expand.

1984 - Next weeks featured show on Shakedown Stream is the 1st night of a three night stand at the Berkeley Community Theatre. We are paying 
attention to the Scarlet>Fires, China>Riders and Help>Slip>Franklin's - they are the most popular opening tunes for the 2nd sets of 1984. 

"After the second set the band left the stage and the lights went down and they unveiled some large screens. Everyone was filled with anticipation because they started showing photos af Stars, Galaxies, Planets, and the like. Then Phil came out and stepped up to the mike and said, "We're going to do something special for you; one night and one night only.""

The Stream continues to wind around and through the live music of the Grateful Dead on every week.
