    Grateful Dead Hour no. 409

    Week of July 22, 1996

    Vince Welnick brought a delightful pop sensibility to the Grateful Dead. He was instrumental in the return of "Here Comes Sunshine" to the Dead's repertoire, but he was unable to persuade the Dead to bring back "The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)," the band's very first single (which they wrote and recorded after completing principal recording of their first album because executives at Warner Bros. Records didn't "hear a single").

    TRUE BLUE

    Interview: Vince Welnick

    Affordables 10/31/92 Oakland Coliseum Arena
    HERE COMES SUNSHINE->
    CHILDREN OF THE FUTURE->
    THE GOLDEN ROAD (To Unlimited Devotion)

    Weir-Welnick-Kaiser 8/27/94 Fukuoka, Japan
    BABA O'REILLY->
    TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS->
    ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER->
    LOVELIGHT->
    ONE MORE SATURDAY NIGHT

    Not sure if it was official, but the Fukuoka band was rumored to have been called "Special K and the Cereal Killers." A band with almost the same lineup performed 2/14/95 at the Fillmore under the name The Valentines. I'll get that show posted here soon.

    Enjoy!

    Every Wednesday, we post a program from the Grateful Dead Hour archives for your enjoyment and enlightenment. You can browse or search the playlists 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.
