While we go about raising funds for Community Radio KBOO 90.7 FM on Grateful Dead and Friends, we will continue on our journey into 1972 Portland Oregon history. As you know, on my last show we began playing a 4 disc Grateful Dead Soundboard show from the Paramount Theater here in town on July 26th 1972. It was later to be named "The Schnitz".  So tell your friends who listen on line what we are up to here, and we will all have a good old time with the Good Old Grateful Dead. And please support Community Radio KBOO!!!

Former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart on his new Smithsonian Collection of the world's music

program date: 
Sat, 10/15/2011

Most of you are familiar with Mickey Hart for his decades of work as one of The Grateful Dead's drummers. 

But did you know about his work with the Smithsonian Institution, specifically with their Smithsonian Folkways music label?

Well earlier this week, the Smithsonian released the Mickey Hart Collection featuring 25 albums drawn from ‘The World,’ a series Hart curated that incorporated his solo projects, other artists’ productions, and re-releases of out-of-print titles. Six of the twenty-five albums form the “Endangered Music Project,” a collaboration between Mickey Hart and the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which presents recordings from musical traditions at risk.

And on this week's installment of Grateful Dead &  Friends, Mickey joined us live to talk about the Collection, his new band, tour and forthcoming album.

You can freely download 10 files and stream 25 others from the Collection and watch a behind-the-scenes tour of Smithsonian Folkways with Mickey.

Hi All! 

Welcome to the second time in a row Begonia Studios Presents has been broadcasted on the 27th of the month! This was a very special month for the Grateful Dead and family here in the Great Northwest! March 7th saw the Kingfish reunion at The Goodfoot lounge on S.E. Stark in Portland, and a Prankster oriented "Acid Test" was held at The Mt. Tabor Theater on S.E. Hawthorne on the same night! This was of course just a little warm up for what was to happen the next night at The Portland Memorial Coliseum. We saw "Furthur", The latest attempt to describe the undescribable make a stop here. One big noticable change for this band is the introduction of John Kadlecik of Dark Star Orchestra (Jerry Slot).  We were fortunately able to get a good copy of the show, and we were able play the entire first set plus the first two songs of the second set for this weeks instalment of Grateful Dead and Friends. Judging by the volume and content of the phone calls recieved in the air room, I would say that everyone was pumped to get to either re-hear this show, or like myself, hear the show for the first time.  (I wasn't able to go this time)  We started the show with three cuts deadicated to my three Grandsons (!) Ethan, Kyle, and Carter.  A Horse Named Bill and Teddy Bear's Picnic from Garcia and Grisman's Not For Kids Only, and Monkey And The Engineer from the 1981 release Reckoning. Next we heard a cut from The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco 11-19-66. A rippin' Cold Rain And Snow. At this point, My partner in crime Tom Chiles and I settled in for a very well played first set of Grateful Dead Music. The set list will prove my point!  Don't forget about our 12 hour Grateful Dead Marathon on May first 12:00 noon till 12:00 midnight. It is a "Listener Request" marathon, so send in your requests to kboodeadshow@gmail.com SOON! See you next month, and we'll finish Furthur 03-08-10!!

Today's show featured much of one night out of seven at the Academy of Music in New York City, in a run that were final 'rehearsals' for the soon-to-be (epic) tour of Europe.  Two other nights (28th & 25th) from this same run were compiled into Dick Picks 30, so you know there's something about this batch of shows, the only ones ever at this venue.

  This show began with two nice tunes from the famous Keystone 7-10-73 in which from two shows a live album was culled from.  This period is arguably Garcia's peak period as a guitar player in which he was playing at a very high level with three totally different bands!!  The 'blues' jam exemplefied how alot of the songs were born from with the "Blues For Allah" album, long open ended jams leading to a structured tune.  The 5-15-70 is another fine example of 1970 GD and is dedicated to the memory of Ron McKernan(AKA Pigpen) in which 3/8 is the 37 year anniversary of his passing and ironically, the same day as the Furthur show at the Coliseum.  See ya' next month!!

Greetings Fellow Space Travelers!

Well, Here we are at the end of February!  My Oh My how time flies! We began this busy broadcast period with a cut dedicated to the late Doug Pete, who was a real fan of the song "Into The Mystic". In his honor, we aired the cut from a KSAN fm broadcast from 09-05-71 featuring no other than Van Morrison.  Introducing "Van The Man" was Tom Donahue. After that, we celebrated the 41st anniversary of the Ultimate Dark Star recorded on 02-27-69 at the Fillmore West. This is the Dark Star that all Dark Stars are compared to. This steller recording was circulated long before the release of the box set documenting the famous 1969 Fillmore West Run, and still stands tall to this day.The segment began with a beautiful Mountains Of The Moon, and glided effortlessly into the familiar notes of Dark Star that most deadheads recognize in the form of the album "Live Dead".  Tom (Chiles) and I felt privilaged to be able to once again bring this wonderful version of Dark Star to our listeners, especially since it is the anniversary of the performance. Grateful Dead just doesn't get any better than this!!! Next up, we ventured back to the year 1989 to relive a Henry J. Kaiser show recorded on 02-05-89. This recording really reflects the "funky" atmosphere of the Kaiser (formerely known as The Oakland Auditorium). The band truly feels right at home here in front of a "hometown audience",  and that comes through the music as well! This show features the breakout of two new songs. In the first set "We Can Run" had it's debut, and in the second set, "Standing on the moon" made it's first appearance. Many listeners called in to comment that "We Can Run" was the worst that they had ever heard. My guess is that the song was so brand new that it had not even been played more than maybe two times. One of the legendary aspects of Grateful Dead is the fact that they were not afraid to try out very new songs in front of thousands of people. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not! After a "Memphis Blues" tease, Weir played a very nice version of "Desolation Row" that really made me forget all about  the sloppy reading of "We Can Run". This recording was downloaded from www.bt.etree.org and was our Download Of The Week. I would like to remind all of you that we will have our 12 hour Grateful Dead Marathon on May 1st, and it will once again be a "Listener Request" fueled event. Submit your request by April 1st.  to www.kboodeadshow@gmail.com . We look forward to hearing your requests, and "show stories"!  See you next month!

Comments

I love dead

 I always listen to your dead program on sat!

Great!

Stefano...from Rome, Italy.

 

Solo Jerry At Passaic, NJ

Hey there Sun Lee/ GD&F DJ's...

First, thanks for volunteering. KBOO is the best, thanks to all you wonderful volunteers.

Second, I wanted to make a new comment, this somehow seems to be a reply. Whoops! My skills at these things are pretty slim, my apologies....

Third and main point: I LOVED the (solo acoustic) Jerry set last week, but when I clicked on the link in the PLAYLISTS tab, it played another (GD electric) set. Did I do something wrong? Or perhaps the link is wrong?

I'd love to have access to the Jerry set. Please advise!

Thanks & happy new year to all....

 

 

 

 

Play more GRATEFUL DEAD dammit!

 Hey Sun,

How many GD songs did you play today performed by the Grateful Dead? I counted four (five if you include Hey Jude.). Play more GD man, it's called the "Grateful Dead and Friends" not "Bands who wish they were the Grateful Dead."

I like the show and I like KBOO but I (and most of my friends who also listen) want to hear the GRATEFUL DEAD, not Furthur, not Widespread Panic, or some local jam band. GRATEFUL DEAD, more please. We don't want to hear other bands playing Grateful Dead songs (Widespread Panic) but the actual GD playing GD music.

Thanks.

Rodrigo

 

 

GD marathon

I'd like to request some shows for the GD marathon this weekend. I'd love to hear 12-31-83 Civic Aud  and/or  8-28-82 Veneta OCF grounds. Do you have the SBD's from the Further shows from Oakland w/ John Kadlecik. -thanks, Jakester, Vancouver, WA

Saturday 8/22/09

Duane, sorry I missed your email/show. Perhaps we can schedule another time to do it. Life has been way hectic, but will slow down soon :o)

Chris

The Grateful Dead

Hey, Duane!

Caught your show today for the first time since moving back to the NW after a 33 year exile in Wyoming. In early 1969 (40 years ago!), I was a senior at Columbia River High in Vancouver-new the year before from Connecticut-and not allowed to driver over to Portland after dark. My girlfriend really wanted to go to a concert at this place I'd never heard of to see two bands I'd never heard of. Her Mom consented to drive she, I and her younger sister over and pick us up afterward. Great concert, great bands, great venue-though as a suburban teen, I was a bit shocked by the older hippies and some of their behavior. We, as minors, got kicked out about 10 or 10:30, but it was a memorable evening. The Grateful Dead and the Quicksilver Messenger Service at The Crystal Ballroom!

Enjoyed your show, and will catch it again. Thanks, Beau in Vancouver

Matt's Birthday today!!!!!!!!!

When I spoke with you I did not know it was your special LIFE Day!!!! Wish you peace, joy and good vibes for your DAY and beyond!! Namaste' Sheri Hoffman (your pesky cd addict). A very Happy BirthDAY and many more to come!!
