The Grateful Dead Hour Confirms Annual Marathon
Longtime The Grateful Dead Hour host David Gans has confirmed the initial details for the 28th Annual KPFA Grateful Dead Marathon. This year’s celebration will take place on Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 9:00 am to 1:00 am featuring previously unheard music by the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, and related artists. In addition, the event will feature an auction of Grateful Dead memorabilia including fine art photographic prints and a live in-studio performance by a soon-to-be-announced special guest.
Gans has produced the nationally-syndicated radio program The Grateful Dead Hour since the mid-1980s. He has been a programming consultant and on-air host on SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead Channel since its inception in 2007.
