    Grateful Dead Hour no. 365

    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.

    Thank you, AK
    It's been a privilege to serve the music all these years. It's a wonderful think that someone like you can become a Deadhead from a generation and half a planet away. Gans/GD Hour blog

    By the way
    Thank you for posting these Jerry Commemoration shows David. I've been listening to them over the last two days and have found them incredibly moving. Sad, but also very hopeful and joyous. I'm twenty-four years old and live in Australia so I'm about as far away from ever seeing the Grateful Dead or being involved in the group as is possible for someone who loves the music. Needless to say I can't listen to the Grateful Dead Hour aside from the dead.net streams so I'm very grateful that they are available. Listening to this set of shows has been a great experience. I can't imagine what it must have been like within the Dead community at the time these were initially broadcast. I suppose I can't realy imagine what it was like being within the community and going to shows at all since I've never experienced it. Even so, thanks to your programme, I've been able to learn what the community was (and still is) like and have been introduced to a lot of periods of Dead music that I hadn't invested much time in. Despite all the negative vibes that have appeared in recent years (mainly due to people's reaction to all the archive.org and vault stuff), your show is a warm, friendly reminder that, in the end, it's ok to turn on the music and float away. While it's inevitable that the community won't be the same now that the band no longer performs regularly, it's still important that people work hard to maintain the culture and to educate others about the music and the history of the group, the times and the people. You've obviously worked for the majority of your life to do this and I'm sure that, even if you don't always see the appreciation, it's there in everyone who listens to your show and shall remain for as long as we listen to Grateful Dead music - forever!

    Nazism
    I don't think the woman means Jerry Garcia was interested in Nazism - I think she means that he was very interested in talking about spirituality and historical reasons for the way it developed. Or something like that...

She said she met Jerry and they talked about the spiritualism of Nazism and the influence it still has today and he was big into that!? Can someone please enlighten me if I misunderstood something here!? Nazism is Spiritual?! Jerry was into that!?
