    Another all-music show, with a particularly wonderful musical reference to the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. This five-note musical figure plays an important part in the film's story of inter-species communication.>

    Every Wednesday, we post a program from the Grateful Dead Hour archives for your enjoyment and enlightenment. You can browse or search the playlists - by song title, show date, guest name, etc - at gdhour.com or on the GD Hour Search page, and let me know what program(s) you'd like to hear by emailing me at gdhour@dead.net.>

    Eugene 78 .. potent stuff
    What a NFA !! . The O1 . This tidbit of Dead music you aired in spring 94 is just hair raising stuff . The not fade away rips and rips and rips ; Its a MONSTER !! : ) A good mosnter , dont get me wrong .. Great Around & Around too ; These f**rs were on fire in Eugene in 78 .. !! I didnt hear the Dead hour ai think in the spring of 94 ( I wasn t familiar w the program yet } . Its really curious , the opening music on the broadcast has stuff from American B . And I obtained that Cd , i think like a month before your broadcast ( I d heard it for about a year } But i remember that spring just being in total awe at the music in it . Its one of the band s best and most perfect works Thanks for reminding me of how great it was to prepare oneself to see their first couple of shows ( for me it was that summer in ' 94 ] . I was totally pumped and the scene in Noblesville IN blew me away . I loved it . Did you get aorund to seeing a PInk floyd show that summer , Dave ?? Great re broadcast ..
