Head for the Vault
Here's a rainy day activity, via HerDomain:
About Vault Radio:
Bill Graham and his concert promotion company, Bill Graham Presents,
produced more than 35,000 concerts all over the world. His first venue, the
legendary Fillmore Auditorium, was home to many of rock's greatest
performers - Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Doors, The Grateful Dead,
Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton,
Bob Dylan, Prince - and the list goes on and on.
Graham taped thousands of live performances and stored the tapes in the
basement of the BGP headquarters.
These tapes and the concerts they captured lay dormant until the Bill
Graham archive was acquired by Wolfgang's Vault (Bill Graham's given first
name was Wolfgang) in 2003.
Vault Radio is now playing selected tracks from these concerts in an
FM-quality, 128K digital radio stream. Songs will be added to and removed
from the radio show on a regular basis. We will be broadcasting unaltered
live performance music from many of the greatest bands of the last 40
years. The music you hear on Vault Radio has not been sweetened or
polished. You'll be listening to what the band played that night - nothing
more, nothing less.
This is the real thing and we hope you enjoy it.
