Week of September 18, 1995
The last of five programs produced after Jerry Garcia's death in the summer of 1995.
Two days after Jerry died, the Fillmore was opened up and Deadheads invited, by word of mouth, to come in and mourn together. I collected a great variety of stories and expressions of grief, more of which are included in this program
"Bird Song and "Brokedown Palace" are from a live broadcast on KPFA in Berkeley (my home station). Danny Carnahan and Robin Petrie subsequently broke up their act; Carnahan went on to found an excellent band called Wake the Dead, specializing in Celtic-style interpretations of Grateful Dead songs, often intertwined with jigs and reels. The band has released three CDs.
