“There is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!

WSLR’s Spring ‘21 Membership Drive is here!
WSLR-LP 96.5 FM Sarasota, Community Radio

The Membership Drive only: 941-894-6469 office

Monday night is my stint in this year’s Spring Membership Drive, and the theme is “Community
Positive”. In light of the subject, and that this show is “Dead”-icated to live performances paying
tribute to The Dead, Jerry, or any of the extended Grateful Dead family, I have been fortunate for
many years to be able to record live local music that would otherwise be lost, so I would like to
feature recordings of Sarasota local musicians totally outside the WSLR envelope. Events that
you may have attended!

Events such as:
The Papa Schmitz Band, “Payne Park Grand Opening”, 10/6/07;
The Wirebeaters, The Old Packinghouse Cafe, 11/1/07;
Roy Schneider and “The Gentlemen At The End”, The Old Packinghouse Cafe, 2/10/10;
The Florida Mountain Boys, “Gator Creek Bluegrass Festival”, Linger Lodge, 5/7/11

And remember, too, that WSLR+Fogartyville is ALSO ”Dead”-icated to live music, and
especially live local music!
