Grateful Dead Hour no. 614
By David Gans
Week of June 26, 2000
Conclusion of a two-parter, requested by Andy Muenz.
Featured: WMBR's original master monaural recording of the Dead's free show at MIT on May 6, 1970, with Eli Polonsky, host of WMBR's "Lost and Found" (Tuesdays noon to 2pm on WMBR 88.1 in Cambridge , Massachusetts). During Eli's appearance with me on KPFA's Dead to the World, we got calls from two people who were at the show.
Played in bitter cold on the campus of MIT, this is a powerful performance made more aggressive by the weather, a microphone malfunction at the start of "Good Lovin'," and national rage over the shootings at Kent State two days earlier.
Interview: Eli Polonsky and guests
