If you’re kicking yourself because you didn’t get to see The Dead on their red-hot spring tour, you have one last chance to see them—at the Rothbury Festival in beautiful rural Michigan, on July 4. After that, it’s highly unlikely the group will perform together again in 2009, though most of the band members will all be criss-crossing America in different groups this summer.

Another Merl Saunders interview from the GD Hour archive. This program contains the same "Mystery Train" we heard in past week's podcast; at the time of this interview (1990), it had not been released; Merl gave it to me on a cassette as a special treat.
