Grateful Dead Hour no. 1384

Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of March 30, 2015

Second of four programs featuring the complete unreleased soundboard recording of June 14, 1987 at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Also: a performance of “Brokedown Palace” dedicated to the memory of Calico, aka Ruby at GDTS, who passed away on March 18, 2015. I was in the studio recording the song when we got the news of her passing, and I thought about her while I was singing. Calico was a tremendous hippie role model, a facilitator of healthy good times for thousands and thousands of people. People who ordered tickets from GDTS or camped out in the parking lots of Dead concerts knew her and benefited from her kindnesses.

Enjoy!

This was my first show ever.

This was my first show ever. Can't say it changed my life. That came later with the next few dozen shows!
