Help with "recession bar" graph

Hi,

I was wondering if someone might assist me in the construction of a 
"recession bar" graph.  This type of graph is often used in economics 
to depict interesting sub-periods on a time series graph. .For this 
type of graph, the user would specify one or more intervals of 
interest. Each interval would be depicted by a shaded vertical column, 
the width of which spans the regions of interest (image a series of 
possibly irregularly spaced vertical grid lines, with shading in 
between). For an example, see 
http://www.cepr.org/data/eurocoin/recession/

I've been trying to figure out a way to get gridlines to do this in 
LIstPlot. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mark
