Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of October 19, 1992

Former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten talks about his book Between Rock and Hard Places: A Musical Autobiodyssey (Hulogosi, 1992).

The program begins with an interring recording of the Grateful Dead, made by George Jackson very near to the stage on the keyboardist's side. The vocals are hard to hear, but the interaction between TC's keyboard and Jerry Garcia's guitar is prominently featured.
