Week of September 5, 1988
This week we hear a November 1987 interview with Jerry Garcia by Mary Eisenhart, a longtime Deadhead and a good friend of mine who is also the forum manager here on Dead.Net. The full transcript is posted on Mary's web site; portions appeared in BAM Magazine, and Mary was kind enough to allow me to broadcast parts of it in the very first episode of my nationally syndicated radio show, the Grateful Dead Hour.
This program is being circulated in the DeadNet forums. Click here to find out more and sign up for a copy if you're interested.
An important note about this interview, from Mary's post in the vine topic:
....this [interview] certainly highlights the difference between doing interviews for print (which this was, originally) and broadcast. Let's just say if you INTEND to do an audio interview, learn from my lame example and do not say "uh-huh" at 30-second intervals.
My commercial syndication deal lasted exactly one year. Since September 1989, I have distributed the Grateful Dead Hour myself to a combination of Public, college, community, and commercial stations. The complete station list is here, along with a list of other Grateful Dead radio programs.
