The story behind the posters
 
In 1979, KGNU began broadcasting its highly popular Grateful Dead Rare Tape Specials on the last night of its semi-annual fundraising drives.
In 1984, local artist Bruce Campbell dropped by KGNU and asked then station manager Greg Fisher if he could donate some original art for the upcoming pledge drive. Greg suggested that Bruce create a poster for the big Grateful Dead Special, and the rest, as we say, is history.
Since then, KGNU has offered a unique commemorative poster to everyone who calls in to become a member of KGNU during each Grateful Dead Special.
These colorful and intricate posters were created by mainly local artists throughout the years and were created using various media including hand drawn art, computer generated art, photography, mechanical overlays,and cut & paste.
KGNU is now offering some of these posters for sale at $10 each. For those folks who can pick them up at our studios in Boulder there is no extra charge. For any orders that we have to mail, add $5 shipping and handling per order. Each poster has a name and number, please use both when ordering. Pay either by credit card or by check.
If sending a check,send your order along with payment to: KGNU, 4700 Walnut St., Boulder, CO 80301. Make checks payable to KGNU. Do not send cash.
Many thanks go out to all of the people who have supported the Grateful Dead Specials over the years by becoming listener members of KGNU.
We couldn't have done it without you.
