Grateful Dead Hour no. 794

Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

GD Hour #794 is the second installment of a four-part series featuring an interview with Steve Parish, the legendary GD roadie who was also the manager of the Jerry Garcia Band for the last decade or so of its existence. The occasion was the publication of Steve's memoir, Home Before Daylight.

Speaking of Home Before Daylight, news recently surfaced that a movie is in the works. According to Rolling Stone:

...now moviegoers can start preparing for the most acid-soaked tale of them all: Home Before Daylight, a film based on the formative years of The Grateful Dead. The movie will be adapted from a book by Steve Parish, who has some real credentials: He was a Dead roadie for 35 years.

The story, which has already been endorsed by Dead guitarist Bob Weir, will chart the history of the band, focusing on those times they chilled with Ken Kesey and Jefferson Airplane in the Haight-Ashbury days. We're totally stoked for this film, if just to see who gets cast as Grace Slick (please not Lindsay Lohan).

This show also features one of my all-time favorite Grateful Dead performances, from the second set of 5/19/74 in Portland. I was there that night, and this was one of the first tapes I went for when they let me into the vault in 1985 to get music for the radio show.

Enjoy!

I love the standard China Cat into I Know You Rider Jam. Do you have some of that stuff on The Grateful Dead Hour? I won't fade away. -Jeff in NH

REQUEST!!

Thanks to David Gans for making these shows available for download!!
... I remember hearing a studio out-take from Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder(?) of a Fire on the Mountain rap and an instrumental ... I've tried in vain to search for it on the site ... Is it possible to one day post that show, if you guys can find it??
In the mean time, I'm totally thrilled with all the choices so far ... Thank you X 1000!!!
