Dead Quilt for Friend

Here is a recent story that caught my attention about the kind efforts of some deadheads helping another deadhead - 
"Today, Brian's wife, Sherri, sent me a note asking if I had any old Deadhead T-shirts, as she was going to turn them into a healing quilt for Brian.

Orlando, Florida

The featured Grateful Dead show this week on our beloved Shakedown Stream ™ is from April of 1991. It will be one of the three Dead shows from this three night stand in Orlando, FL. By the end of January, we will have heard all three of these shows from sunny Florida.

I know many listeners are wondering about the fate of Shakedown Stream™. I am very confident that the SAVE MVY campaign is going to be successful and we will Stream furthur.

The station has launched an effort to raise $600,000 by the end of January to facilitate a transition from a commercial, airwave radio station to a nonprofit, Internet-based one.
