GRATEFUL DREAD RADIO, for eons, has presented an eclectic blend of rock, jamband, reggae, folk, blues, country, ska, psychedelia, world beat, smart pop and so much music your ecstatic ears might pop. There are some huge changes to report: The station can be found exclusively via Live365.com now, and in addition to the usual mix of ever-changing moods and sounds, it will now include periodic special themed mixes, live broadcasts, and progressive news and talk segments. This should be cool — and it’s free for you to hear (unless you choose to buy a premium membership, which allows ad-free listening).
The new station is up and jammin’, but we kick off the changes with a special live broadcast. Join us Tuesday, Aug. 1 at 7 PM ET as Grateful Dread celebrates the birth of JERRY GARCIA with our very first live show. Don’t miss it!
NEW MUSIC ADDS: In addition to the musical melange Grateful Dread Radio has become known for over the years, we’ll be adding all kinds of fresh stuff much more frequently (because, for once, I am making all the programming decisions). Check out new sounds from RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, EDIE BRICKELL & NEW BOHEMIANS, and TOM PETTY, NEIL YOUNG’s controversial new anti-war and anti-Bush protest songs, and much more.
And coming soon: AF&O’s Progressive News Roundup, a weekly audio compendium of news and activism from the Left, which will be broadcast Fridays and re-run on Sundays starting Aug. 4 (time yet to be determined).
By the way, WE LOVE REQUESTS!
You can find the new and improved Grateful Dread Radio (aka GratefulDread Jams) at Live365. Come by, tune inm, turn on, drop us a line, and tell your friends.
