I don't know...I remember the Garcia VS Garcia VS MountainGirl trial after Jerry jammed, Steve was at his utmost on the stand. Being very upfront yet, somehow respectful to the court. He is better when pressured or surprised. What do I know... Peace.

nice stuff. As for GD hour requests Mr. Gans, do you have any inclination to replaying the show after Jerry died? Its somber, but as I stated prior, its chock full of awesome music, and you were a soulful soothing voice when I needed it most. Just a thought. Either way, I will take whatever you are willing to share. And thanks again Dave, Rhino, GD Organization, et al. “The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”

Should be lots of fun! I don't suppose you've got the one (it was actually a Deadhead Hour, I think) where Phil was playing Charles Ives and the station manager went nuts? Or something like that? I forget the drama, but it was a fine episode.

What a great surprise!! Like JohnnyG said about the show after Jerry died, your show after Brent died did me a world of good. I could hear that again.

The Brent and Jerry tributes, as well as the Vince Welnick tribute, are high on my list for this series. Re Phil and Ives, there was a show I produced in my year of "commercial" syndication that my distributor balked at, with Phil playing a Coltrane song and a Miles Davis song. After a long conversation with a consultant, I re-edited the show to put the Coltrane cut in the last quarter hour. The reasoning is too tedious to recount. GD Hour blog Station list

Hi David, my request would be for the following program...if I can remember my cassette correctly, there was a hilarious Mutilaudio segment on there about televangelists asking for money - I always loved those segments! --------------------------------------- Grateful Dead Hour no. 14 Week of December 5, 1988 Part 1 26:33 Don't Ease Me In Lost Sailor-> Saint of Circumstance - 9/1/79 Holleder Memorial Stadium, Rochester NY Mercy Mercy Mercy - Brian Melvin's Nightfood, (Global Pacific ZK 40733, 1988) Run for the Roses - Jerry Garcia, Run for the Roses Part 2 23:26 Wharf Rat-> I Need a Miracle-> Bertha-> Good Lovin' 9/1/79 Holleder Memorial Stadium, Rochester NY There wasn't time to play the whole "Wharf Rat" and still get the end of the set in, but Garcia's last solo was so stunning I had to include it. According to DeadBase, the complete book of Grateful Dead Song Lists, 9/1/79 was Brent Mydland's 20th concert since breaking in with the band on April 22 of that year. Brand new to the repertoire were the Bob Weir-John Barlow composition "Lost Sailor," introduced in Oakland on August 4, and its companion piece, "Saint of Circumstance," which Weir sang in public for the first time in Glens Falls, New York, the night before this Rochester performance. "Mercy Mercy Mercy" is from a new Global Pacific album by Brian Melvin's Nightfood, with the late Jaco Pastorius on bass and Bob Weir on guitar and lead vocal. The song made the pop charts twice in 1967 - as an instrumental by Cannonball Adderley and in a vocal version by the Buckinghams. It was written by Josef Zawinul, who played keyboards with the Adderley Quintet and later founded Weather Report, where Pastorius became famous for his innovations on the electric bass. Weir also appears on "Fever," sharing lead vocals with Jan Fanucci. - DG --------------------- thanks David! Zeb

It's good to be here with my kind friends. It's been awhile. I think I'll just sit back, get comfortable, snuggle my toes under my dog, and see where this trip takes me. I'm new here, so I will probably get lost searching through the fog, so be patient with me. My journey is just beginning. Peace.

I am looking forward to hearing these shows. For a period of time I was living were I could not hear GDH and I missed a lot!. I am glad to see that your efforts have now become a permanent fixture here at the dead net community! No requests from me at this time as it will all be new to me! Keep up the good work.

My 4/14/71 tape was one of many tha were stolen and I've ben desperately trying to find another tape of it -mine was incomplete (as filler I had on it I had Alice D. Millionaire and Pigpen singing a recitation song about robbinga gas station with a guy named Michael). I haven't heard that show or those filler songs now since 1995 or so. So, at least now I have one song from the show. Maybe it'll be released one day.
