    Grateful Dead Hour no. 962

    Week of February 26, 2007

    First of a three-parter featuring the second set of New Year's Eve 1990.

    Around the time I was putting this show together, I spoke with guitarist Bob Weir about the 1976 New Year's Eve CD that was about to come out, and Bob told me a great story about an encounter with Bill Graham at the 1990 show. Graham was, of course, the legendary San Francisco concert promoter who put on a wild pageant at midnight every New Year's Eve from 1976 until 1990. You'll also hear a bit of the radio broadcast, including the voices of hosts Ken Nordine (who celebrated his 90th birthday this week - happy birthday, Ken!), Bari Scott, Jack Ellis, and me.

    Oh, and the wonderful Branford Marsalis sits in with the Dead for pretty much the whole second set.

    Enjoy!
    - DG

    The music:

    Grateful Dead 12/31/90 Oakland Coliseum Arena
    NOT FADE AWAY->
    EYES OF THE WORLD
    DARK STAR

    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.

    New Years Eve, 1990
    Thanks - great show. Interesting mix - one of the few where Bobby's guitar is relatively easy to pick out. Cheers, keep up the great work!
