LANGUAGE IS A VIRUS
I had a request to play something from the original KFOG Deadhead Hour, which started in November 1984 and where I did my first radio show on February 18, 1985.
This episode is typical of the sort of thing I was doing in those days: the first half is "Money Changes Everything," an audio collage of music snippets of political and cultural stuff from TV and radio. The second half is an interview with John Barlow, Bob Weir's songwriting partner, in which he plays some of his favorite songs and we talk about writing, philosophy and of course the Grateful Dead.
You can browse or search the Grateful Dead Hour program logs on the GD Hour web site. Let me know if there's a particular program you'd like to hear, and feel free to post requests and comments here or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for listening!
