Shakedown Stream is a weekly Grateful Dead radio/podcast show hosted by Jer Bear. It is 4 to 5 hours in length. The first hour is a mix of old, rare, new, favorite and interesting songs of the Grateful Dead. Then Jer Bear plays a show - in its' entirety - selected from their 30 years run from 1965-1995. Afterwards, some more chestnuts may be played to help listeners ease on out of the Stream.
Join us this week on Shakedown Stream™ as we celebrate the success of the SAVE MVY campaign. This week's episode will be an array of various selections of Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart Band, Phil Lesh & Friends, Bobby Weir and, of course, Furthur. It is a gratitude show to display my appreciation for the dedication, enthusiasm, brilliance, fun-loving and bright-light support from the Streamers week after week. http://www.mvyradio.com Shakedown Stream™ Tuesdays @ 5pm EST IN the Stream, every time and all the time.

Thousands of faxed formed were submitted, according to venue officials." Read Complete Article
