The Deadpod

Feb 8, 2008

This week is a very special Deadpod, as it marks the start of our Winter pledge drive for our community radio station, KOPN 89.5 FM as well as for the Deadpod. Musically, we'll continue where we left off last week - we'll be listening to most of the second set from RFK Stadium, June 10th, 1973. This is truly classic Grateful Dead - Eyes of the World into Stella Blue, a Big River, Here Comes Sunshine and a great Dark Star are some of the highlights of this fantastic set..
In the second part of the Deadpod I talk to Gary McKinney, musician, and author of a new novel, Slipknot, a murder mystery whose main character, Sheriff Gavin Pruitt, is a Deadhead. The novel explores his philosophy -influcenced by the band of course, and a classic confrontation of self interest verses the environment..
Best of all I have ten copies of Slipknot to send out to anyone interested in reading this great novel who makes a contribution to the Deadpod of $20 or more. Just drop me a note and I'll gladly send you a copy - this is a really fun read and I know you'll enjoy it.. (You can find Slipknot on or at

Other premiums for this drive include five copies of Donna Jean and the Tricksters new cd,

and five concert CDs from Ratdog's summer tour.. I'm also hoping to get at least five copies of the brand new GD cd, Road Trips vol. 2 which features performances from the fall of 1977. If you're interested in these as a premium for your contribution of $50 or more just drop me a note and I'll let you know what I have available..

I really count on and value your contributions and want to thank you in advance for your consideration and your support..
