Satellite music service Sirius held a phone vote of listeners to "elect a new head [get it?] of state". The winner will be played all day long on Sirius Jam, a purportedly (and mostly) jambands channel, one of 65 the service offers. In a race between Phish and the Grateful Dead, the Dead reportedly won. Email Sirius and tell them you want a recount, or an absentee ballot! The Dead are fine, sure, but we want a full day of PHISH on Tuesday, either as we celebrate victory or fall back in shock. This is a heated, energetic, full-of-fire election. It's soundtrack's gotta have fire! :)
Trey asked in a HeadCount PSA, and we're asking now - be sure to vote next Tuesday, regardless of who or what you're voting for. JUST DO IT!
Vermont Public Radio will air an hour-long documentary on October 27th at 7 pm EST, which will also be streamed online, which explores the band's unique approach to music and its audience, and during which drummer Jon Fishman shares perspective on the band's final moments. For more information, see www.vpr.net.
If you use Verizon and made calls at Coventry, you may have roaming charges for calls that were routed through Quebec (Canada) even if Vermont is within your call area. For some fans, this has meant as much as $55.00 is excess charges. Be sure to check your current bill, and to contact Verizon for a reversal if you were incorrectly charged in this manner. (And thanks to Jim Kapp for the info!)
