Rosie McGee, Dancing with the Dead

Later October is simply lousy with tremendous Grateful Dead shows and at this point, it's very much a toss up as to what I'll play.  68?  72?  74?  76?  77?  78?  83?  89?  90?  91?  Tune in to know.

Plus I'll interview Rosie McGee, author of Dancing with the Dead, her new e-book largely about her life (1964-74) connected to The Grateful Dead and specifically Phil Lesh, her boyfriend from 1965-69. Learn where her name comes from (not birth), how the liner photos for Live Dead were shot, just how much fun Rancho Olompali was and much more.

 Tune in for a great show. Featuring a special acoustic show that the Grateful Dead played for alter-abled children at the Mill Valley Recreation Center. Apparently they were opening for Santa Claus. The date of the show is 12.6.80 and Betty just set up mics to record since there wasn't a PA.

We'll also visit the 5.19.74 from the Memorial Coliseum. If you don't know this show, be sure to listen, because it's got some great music.

Also playing some Widespread Panic and whatever grabs my attention.

Hope you'll tune in.

As it's a transitional weekend, we're trying something different on Unbroken Chain this month:  LIVE MUSIC!

Cody's Wheel is headlining the upcoming 3-night Prankster's Ball at the Bobwhite Theater following the (now sold out) Furthur shows and will play about an hour in the middle of this week's show. Count on hearing some cool non-GD stuff.

And as a prelude to my shift during our October 6th Grateful Dead Marathon, I'll also feature some Grateful Dead from transitional times.

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.

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!!
