OFFICIAL SHOW NOTES: LINEAGE: SBD > GD Master 2" 8 Track RTR @ 15 i.p.s. (two decks) > GD Vault 1" Mixdown
Safety RTR @ 15 i.p.s. > MCS 24 bit/96 kHz ADAT > SSSB (SHNTOOL used and verified); this show was "simulcast"
on Duke University's FM campus radio station; any/all necessary editing, fades, noise reduction, hiss
elimination, phase shifting, time smear correction, digital jitter elimination, equalization, quantization
noise elimination (when converting audio sampling rates for CD-R or DVD mastering), and/or any other
processes, were all digitally performed at 24-bit/96 kHz sampling rate at Serafin Station Studio B using the
"Harpoon" editing software V1.084.782


As the "first show released in 2003", I figured I should make it a hell of a show to what I hope will be a
hell of a year.  I hope you agree with me that this show hits the nail on the head.

This is a little-known "set of factoids" about this show, which is almost always overlooked in the major
"publications and set list" of Grateful Dead shows: this concert was simulcast over Duke's on-campus 50 watt
FM radio station!  On the date of this concert, the University's FM station (which was 94.7 MHz at that time)
broadcasted it live; it's low power transmitter allowed it to be received by FM receivers within a 0.5 mile
radius of the University grounds (per their FCC license).

Many years later, in May of 1984, Duke University "donated" their RTR copies of this show to the Grateful
Dead's Vault, when the station was undergoing renovation.  Almost all of the oldest or "worst condition"
equipment was being totally replaced with (at that time) "state of the art eight track cassette decks" and PCM
decks; a brand new mixing consoles was designed and built by their engineering department students; and even a
small, but very nicely designed, "live studio" was added, where bands could perform a song or two if they were
doing interviews (live or for future broadcasts).

To make room for all of this renovation, the station needed to "clean house" of all their archived RTR (80%) and cassette recordings (20%); these were recordings that the station personnel felt they longer were either required to keep (per FCC rules), or the large quantities of stored RTR/cassette media were no longer of any "musical and/or historical" value to the University as a whole.  There were literally 1,500 RTR and cassette total recordings which were auctioned off (to past and present Duke University students and faculty only!), to help to defray the costs of the new equipment, and the renovation and expansion; any of the media which were not auctioned off were DESTROYED, not simply tossed into a dumpster.

But, there were NO Dead/related concerts or interview recordings auctioned off!  The students and faculty who ran the station agreed that rather than destroy the media that contained this parti
