David Gans GDForum Interview, September 14th, 1999
On 9/14/99 at 5:46:32 PM PDT, David Gans joined us for a chat in the medium-chaos of the GDF Enhanced Conferernce Room. David was about to embark on a solo tour, and also fielded a multiplicity of questions about the Grateful Dead Hour that he hosts, the passing of Dick Latvala and the future of the Vault, the upcoming 5-CD Box Set from the GD (co-produced with Steve Silberman and Blair Jackson), and of course, just about anything else the GDF heads felt like talking about. Enjoy.
[PS from Geoff: This log is quite raw, and may contain many typos, as is the case with live chat. Please email me with important corrections.]

DG: The boxed set is coming out November 9.
OceanDead7: I disagree!! One hour is not nearly enough
GrateMGL: well that it would be the Grateful Dead Two Hour?
OceanDead7: ; )

Jackolyte5: To much of anything is just enough.

DG: No Hog. We couldn't do it all!
DG: I play a Rick Turner guitar - Renaissance model.
JReino: David, will you be playing Philharmonia again in Dec? any insight as to who will be there?

DrPoopP: that E! documentary was bad
GG: ask David about something he's involved in: his tour, books, the GDH, the box set
Luckyben7: the dramatizations were real cheap
GrateMGL: the re-inactments were hilarious

GG: dot's me!
GrateMGL: i play in a band my own self ~ i find it hard to switch to a one man show
MitchCF: David you were awesome when you sat in with fungus in pittsburgh
DG: I love playing in a band, but I really enjoy the solo stuff.
DG: To tell you the truth, I wanted to get away from the "Dead cover band" thing for a while,
TennJed228: David you should get 10-27-79 on GDH.
GG: sitting with fungus? I hope you sprayed micatin first!
Media69: Any chance of getting a stronger outlet for the Dead Hour in NYC
DG: and establish myself as a songwriter anbd singer in my own right.
Media69: WDHA is hard to get
DG: I still do some Dead songs, of course -- I love 'em!
GrateMGL: i hear that ~ Wharf Rat is grate acoustic it works really well
DG: Can you get WFUV, Media69?
Hexfest: What kind of beverages do you prefer?
Media69: even worse
DG: I think I did play 10/27/79 on the GDH a while back.
Iko8369: FUV comes in weak
SugarMg27: A mix of covers and your own is very cool
Capthubie: We lost the gdh in Rochester
Media69: what about Q104?
EMoore9121: 12/26/81 my first show will you get to it on GDH
DG: Yes, Grate - Wharf Rat is fun to sing solo. I sometimes intertwine it with a Los Lobos song...
DG: "One Time One Night."
Reidfarmer: off-subject, but "Sultans of Swing" is one of my alltime faves
GrateMGL: i love that song
Luckyben7: David when and where was your first Gd sHow????
DG: Mine, too, Reidfarmer! Playing that with Phil Lesh was a blast!
Media69: Stevie Nicks Wails
DG: Nmy firest GD show was 3/5/72

GrateMGL: yeah she's on FOX right now
DrPoopP: Stevie Nicks....hehehe
DG: I thoguht WRUR was doing the GDH in Rochester?
GrateMGL: NYC central park ~
DG: w2ere you there, Reidfarmer?
Reidfarmer: no, got it thru GDH
Phenario: David, are you a mentor to anybody to take over the GDH...in case you ever get tired of doing it?
Reidfarmer: blew me away
Capthubie: You know I had heard it on there but thought they stopped I`ll have to check it out
TennJed228: Just since I got it I have had many people ask to trade 10-27-79
SugarMg27: Dave, how many sponsers does it take to get GDH on the air?
DG: Interesting question, Phenario. I am not mentoring anyone...
GG: you'll have to pry David's cold dead fingers off the GDH I think!
DG: But I'm not planning to retire any time soon, either!
TennJed228: Did you put We Can Run, or Easy to Love You
EMoore9121: Just checked 3/5/72 looks like it was a fun show
Phenario: can I volunteer??
DG: I can't anser tthat here SugarMag. Email me - email@example.com
Media69: Who is at the helm of the archives since Dick Latvala passed on?
DG: John Cutler is still in charge of the archive.
Phenario: good...we don't want to see you go
DG: I don't really have a place for you, Phenario. VERY small operation here.
Media69: Any hints on what the next one will be?
DG: No idea. Everything is on hold til this boxed set is done.
Media69: how come they dont release more Dicks Picks frequently
GG: he could camp out on your lawn, eh? ;-)
DG: I think Dick left a lot of suggestions...
Reidfarmer: not even an era?
GrateMGL: hey Dave at at least you produce it every week ~ Cutler sits on a goldmine ~
DG: There wa s plan to increase the DP rfreqwuency to 4/year, I think, but...
GG: I think they release DP pretty frequently as it is
Jackolyte5: Do you think that a Dead Disc of the month club would work or is that to much?
DG: I think that would be fun, but I don't run the zoo :^)
GrateMGL: i think thats a grate idea
Media69: They should put out more Sweeny, lots of shows i would like to get on CD
GrateMGL: turn all of that good stuff over ~
Reidfarmer: almost too fast for me:-)
GG: I'd like to see another release like "Dozin'" which I know rubs some the wrong way
DG: Three or four a year is cvool, as long as they also put out videos, other vault releases, maybe some more comp
Reidfarmer: still trying to digest side trips vol 1
Jackolyte5: I thought that was good. Kind of the highlights of a run.
SugarMg27: Dave, I love the books you've written...any plans for more writing any time soon?
DG: - uh, compilations.
CosmicKC: Phil talked about making every recording avaliable. You think that is possible if they ever open Terrapin?
GG: I think we want the quality to remain high, right?
GrateMGL: well if i hear another cd out there with Walkin Blues ~ lol
Media69: i agree Sweeney, that was a great release i thought
TennJed228: Us Brentheads need shows too!
GrateMGL: Well just as long as the quality is passable
Media69: the box set is a compilation though
DG: No more writing for me any time soon. I'm concentrating on my guitar playing and songwriting.
Sjerbobphl: brent was great!
Mw3323: right on tenn
OceanDead7: As with anything else.....as high as possible!
Luckyben7: brent was my favorite era
Luckyben7: than pig
Mw3323: mine too
DG: I would like to see more '80s and '90s releases, too, but again : I dont' run the zoo.
DrPoopP: mine too!
Media69: David how is the Rock radio situation in SF, i am sure you are aware of the WNEW situationin NY
Sjerbobphl: count me in 85 was the year
GrateMGL: THe zoo ~ thats a good word for it ~
DG: I pay no attention to commerical radio in the bay area.
GG: care to entertain a Phil and Friends Question Dave?
TennJed228: 79 and 80 were good but then there 89' hmmmmmm
Reidfarmer: what kind of an animal are you?
DG: Ask it, Sweeney -- buyt I know next to nothing about P&F.
GG: I think Jorma steals the show on the released CD
Capthubie: I always thought that Warlocks show in hampton with the Dark star was the best and sickest of them all
Media69: I thought you were a DJ at one of the top outlets?
DrPoopP: Dave were you at the Greek shows and if so what did you think of the Tons of Steel?!?
TennJed228: Do you like Brent?
DG: I haven't heard it!
OceanDead7: I would like to see early 80`s 10-16-81 especially
GG: just being a critic
BrtWood: No shit!! ventura rocked!!!
DG: I have not seen a Phil and Friends show.
OceanDead7: and anything from 66-71
