David Gans, the host of the weekly syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour, will celebrate his 25th anniversary in broadcasting on Saturday, when he hosts the annual 16-hour KPFA Grateful Dead fund-raising marathon which will begin at 12 p.m. ET. Aside from streaming live music from the band's forty year career, Gans will also preview two new Grateful Dead releases: Road Trips vol. 3 no. 2 (a show from 1971) and Crimson, White, and Indigo, a DVD/3-CD package featuring the Grateful Dead concert on July 7, 1989. Peter Rowan and David Nelson are also scheduled to drop by the studio for the show. The broadcast can be heard on KPFA and via web casts at Nugs.net, Gdradio.net and Kpfa.org.
“If you love live music,” Gans said, “then you must support KPFA.”
