One thing about the convergence of the Grateful Dead and technology--there are lots and lots of podcasts and local radio shows about the band, the community, the music...

St. Louis Dead Shows

St. Louis has a strong community of deadheads and are lucky enough to be home to a few fantastic, long-time treasured Dead cover bands - Jakes Leg, The Schwag. The local independent radio station here is KDHX, and they have an awesome Dead/ Jam-oriented show on Tuesdays from 12-2:00 hosted by the one and only Drea:

Various Dead and Dead-Related Shows

I keep a list on my website of what I think are the best English language radio stations. These are ones that have a Grateful Dead or Dead-related radio program.

Before the list, let provide the caution that all of these are from non-commercial college or community radio stations. Any could change schedule or disappear at any time. While I will provide the link to each station's home page, be aware many of these outlets are often not good at posting timely updates of their schedules. I have also included the non-commercial stations that run "The Grateful Dead Hour."

KPFA's Dead To The World - Wed 8-10pm PT

KPFA Berkeley's Dead To The World is still going strong Wed. nights from 8-10pm Cali time. It's on 94.1 FM in the greater Bay Area, 88.1 FM in the Central Valley, 97.5 FM in Santa Cruz, and everywhere. Tim Lynch took the reins from David Gans full time three years ago (after co-hosting the show for a long time). It's usually GD in the first hour and a mix of jam, grass, groove, and Americana in the second hour, with live acts on the air as often as possible.

Re: Favorite Dead Podcasts

I stumbled onto Endless Boundaries Jam Radio a few years ago. It's a four-hour replay of a lcoal radio show in the NJ suburbs of Philadelphia. The hosts do a great job of weaving classic Grateful Dead jams into reggae, world music, jam bands, classic jams, and all kinds of fusion angles from jazz-rock to folk-roots.

TRUCKIN WITH THE DEAD - Radnomy Internet Radio

Unique mix spinning around the Music of the Grateful Dead along with other Jam Bands, Rock"n"Roll, Folk Rock, Electric Blues and other sweet sounds. Mostly live, Deadhead friendly this is NOT a "classic rock" station. NO same old stuff or hairband noise anywhere.
