Dead to the World
8:00 PM Pacific Time: Wednesdays
Dead to the World began life on KPFA as the Grateful Dead Hour. When host David Gans was offered a second hour in 1995, he agreed on the condition that he be allowed to play non-Dead music as well. “No problem,” said the management, and so Dead to the World was born. Tim Lynch began co-hosting the program in 2000, and took over as primary host in 2015.
Guest hosts Phil Osegueda, Sally Philips, and KPFA Music Director Luis Medina present a special program on the British Blues of the 60’s on Dead to the World at 8 pm. Featured artists in this two hour special include John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Savoy Brown, Cream, Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green and many others.
