Grateful Dead Hour no. 1280
By David Gans
Week of April 1, 2013
First of two parts featuring an unreleased live Grateful Dead performance recorded June 8, 1969.
I played this on the annual KPFA Grateful Dead fund-raising marathon, and I invited blogger/historian Corry Arnold to tell us what he knows about a most interesting weekend at the Fillmore West. Here is his blog post about it. That phone interview is included in this broadcast. We'll hear the rest of the set in next week's program/post.
Interview: Corry Arnold
Grateful Dead 6/8/69 Fillmore West, San Francisco
TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT (with Wayne Ceballos et al)
Jackie Greene, The Grateful EP SUGAREE
Every Wednesday, we post a program from the Grateful Dead Hour archives for your enjoyment and enlightenment. You can browse or search the playlists at gdhour.com or on the GD Hour Search page, and let me know what program(s) you'd like to hear by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for listening!

and the link to Corry's blog. Fantastic detail! There's a wonderful post from Wayne himself towards the bottom of the posts from 4/24/2010 where even he's not sure of the exact events that night. lol :) A good time was had by one and all and, as far as I'm concerned, that's what time spent with the Dead has always been about. Celebrating life like no one else.
