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.

Grateful-Dead-A-Thon ... Danny Thompson brings in his very own master audience tapes and the stories that go with them....
Yes incredible Reel To Reel Master tape played directly off the actual machine it was recorded on, truly jaw dropping Cal Expo Amphitheatre in Sacramento, CA May 21, 1992.
Thanks Danny that was unbelievably brilliant!

Grateful Dead_A-Thon edition -- Marc sitting in with LIVE PERFORMANCE from Studio 237
Before the Warlocks or Mother Mcree's Jug Band there was a vibrant country folk/bluegrass community on San Francisco. Music from Joan Baez, Kentucky Colnels, Bill Monroe and others help to illustrate early influences on their music.

Celebrating Ornette Coleman's 80th Birthday (3/09/1930). Rebroadcast of 3/18/2001w/ guest V. Pedevski surveying the works of Ornette. The original show contains many album tracks and very interesting discussion on the background of the recording sessions and Ornette specifically.
This is a tape (two actually) that I've been carrying around for sometime waiting for the right opportunity. There is no better time than in celebration of Ornette's 80th birthday to do this.
A full album side of classic comedy from Mr Ed the Talking Horse, and the story of Ed The Song Writer
