The Live/Dead album on The Golden Road, Friday March 27

Hiya Radio Landers!  Join us for a special broadcast on the Golden Road of Live/Dead, the ground breaking improvisational masterpiece recorded live at the Fillmore West & the Avalon Ballroom in the Spring of 1969 by the Grateful Dead. The show will air live at 6:30 pm on March 27 and is also available for live streaming and subsequent archive listening at KDRT.org.

This album is still regarded by even the most dedicated fans of the band's sounds as a perfect representation of the Dead at their absolute peak in the late 1960's, and in total command of their ability to switch rhythms and change time signatures on the fly.  Included in the broadcast will be THE definitve version of "Dark Star", the incredible pairing of "St. Stephen/The Eleven" and what is perhaps Ron "Pig Pen" McKernan's best recorded performance.

The Grapevine: When You Pick Up Da Funk!

Come join a special broadcast of The Grapevine on Wednesday, March 18th at 6:00 pm for the KDRT debut of some exceptionally righteous Soul + Funk by Lew Hopson.  This album just landed at KDRT and without a doubt, serves the sound previously laid down by James Brown, Tower of Power, Otis and even Sam Cooke for the good side of soul music.  

We'll be playing a good portion of this new release from RudeLab Records so be sure to hang close to your radio, turn it on up!, and dig the sounds on KDRT!

Here's a little more info on Lew:
