Shakedown Stream is devoted to the Grateful Dead. Week after week, we stream entire Dead shows. We are diverting the current this week to a whole complete Jerry Garcia Band show from 1977. Such a detour has occurred only once before on Shakedown Stream. Maybe we are engaging in phenomenology.

Last week's "Jerry Treats" was delicious, yet, we Streamers want more of Jerry sweetness. Join me this week as we continue to celebrate the life and music of Jerry Garcia.

Inspiration Move Me Brightly

This week we celebrate the life of Jerry Garcia. He would have celebrated his 70th birthday this past August 1st, however, ... and this August 9th is the 17th anniversary of Jerry's death. Shakedown Stream will feature a cornucopia of Jerry's 30-plus years of music. No specific plan or road map is necessary for where we are going. The wisdom of the Stream will take us to a different time and space. Together we will experience a streaming memorial to the music and scene we all love.

Join us for a special episode of Shakedown Stream and get your annual fill of Pure Jerry on
