Drove up to NY in my Renault Le Car with John Ade, Ralph Gardner and Tom Allen and stayed with John Ade's brother in Tarrytown. It was a great road trip. After one of the show we went to a bar full of college girls. One of them liked my hat and wore it all night but I did not get lucky.

My 2nd Grateful Dead show. The only show of the run I attended and it was certainly one to remember. A really fun show played really well. This is the show Phil strolled up to Bobby's mic before the beginning of the 3rd set and said, "We haven't taken requests for 15 years and we're not about to begin now." I've always hoped this show (in it’s entirety) would be released. The Radio City and Warfield shows are historic and showcase the GD at one of their many peaks in the Grateful Dead timeline.

#3 for me...

This was my third... We got our ducats from a 'ticket broker' up on Route 23 in Bloomingdale, NJ... This was a Saturday night - a school night - I was now 17 and a senior in High School... Not being the best stuident, I had to be content with trying to get to shows on weekend nights (funny how, almost 30 years later, I still have to try and hit shows on weekend nights, but for different reasons :) )

Anyhoo, this was RADIO CITY! Plush red carpet! Art Deco elegance! Big gold statues! Humongous stage drapes! Full-service bars on each floor! My gawd, we were in HEAVEN! Me, Pete up from school in WV, Gerry, Chrissy, Michelle and Melissa... We took a bus in from Jersey, but the show ended so late we had to call my brother up to come drive us home, as the buses stopped running after midnight, or whatever time it was.... Trippy drive through the tunnel, with bro Jeff not so happy. Hey man! Don't harsh our buzz! Man, what a scene... Show is immortalized by the Franklins Tower (again, 3 for 3 now!) which appears on Dead Set, and the acoustic To Lay Me Down, which is on Reckoning....

Oh, how sweet it was...
