Hello, My name Is Karen~GDB-SEPA~. I am the new kid on the Block at Grateful Dead Books. I am An East Coast Transplant from So Cal, for 5 years now, I love all kinds of music and have seen many , many bands. I was lucky enough to have older bros help shape some of my music taste and even luckier to have been able to have gone to my first Grateful Dead concert when I was 14 in 1976. I am the mother of two, have two cats and a dog and a wonderful boyfriend. I majored in Broadcasting and had a really sweet slot in college radio, and worked for a brief period at KLOS in Los Angeles. With luck in the new year to come, I will be on the air somehow - maybe internet radio. I love sharing music and talking about it with others.

I have this wonderful Grateful Dead book that was my companion for many years. It was produced and created by Cynthia Bassett, Paul Grushkin and Jonas Grushkin. There are many memories just lying in the pages of this book. It contains 210 pages of Deadhead letters, photos drawings and everything in between. A lovely part of any Deadhead collection. Enjoy
