GRATEFUL DEAD RADIO all day (still) till MIDNITE

Marc at the wheel of the Bus,

Let's kick off our BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR PHIL with a little local flavor, from the bands first shows at the Nassau Coliseum>> September 8 1973 , a nice chunk of the second set .... super SBD with massive bass and Phil's backing harmonies.

A few days later, (the next shows) are down in Williamsburg VA at William and Mary University .. what makes this show special is the Horn section that joins along to begin the second set. We check that out ....

Our next segment should be called "UnPhiltered" as we explore Phil's composing style with a journey to the Sixth Street Studio Session while rehearsing for Mars Hotel .. we'll examine the evolution of Unbroken Chain & Pride Of Cucamonga.

Early Phil ... OK, how 'bout when he was a College Music Student? May 1959 from a recital of the College of San Mateo Jazz Ensemble and Bigband. Original composition from our featured birthday boy ... Young Phil and his Trumpet.

Movng on with the concept of "Phil Lesh Bass Innovator" we cvisit the recording sessions from late winter/early spring 1974 Mars Hotel. This rare tid bit has six different tracks illustraing the development of Lesh's tune "Unbroken Chain"; "Pride Of Cucamonga", too.

Next, the complete performance from June 25 1981 -- Jerry Garcia Band w/ Phil Lesh live from Santa Cruz, CA. In 1981 Phil sat in for John Kahn on a few occasions, like this one, this is not a highly circulated recording and thanks to Jay Jay Hance we now have it to share.

Hopefully this segment can illicit furthur discussion towards how innovative the grateful dead have been ....
