Dead-air-rose_small

Truckin' ! - Rick Miner with Barrett-Jackson Auctions talks about the 1949 Studebaker which will be auctioned off on Sunday (1/19). The truck known as "The Dred" was owned by Owsley Stanley and used by the Grateful Dead to haul their equipment to shows in the late 60's.

The late Robert Hunter would often send lyrics to his friend, David Nelson. One of the last batches included lyrics to a track titled: Movin' Right Along. Barry Sless plays lead guitar on the new song. He talks about the lyrics and the relationship between David Nelson and the Grateful Dead.

50 Years Ago This Month -
The Grateful Dead were “Busted Down On Bourbon Street.” On January 31st, 1970, the group's hotel room was raided and the entire band got arrested on drug charges. However, the experience would go on to influence the lyrics of “Truckin’“, one of the Dead’s most iconic songs.

80 Trips Around The Sun For Phil Lesh! 
The band's bassist has announced a three-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.

25 Years Ago This Month 
Jerry Garcia escaped injury when he lost control of a brand-new BMW and smashed into a retaining wall on U.S. 101 in Marin County. The bummer part was it wasn't his BMW. His BMW was getting maintenance at the dealership so the car he crashed was the dealerships loaner car. (1/19/95)

Week 04 // 49'ers - The Team and Truck

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:59

We throw out some Grateful Dead and San Francisco 49'er stats because there's a few fans, right? Plus, the band's old 1949 equipment truck

Dead-air-rose_small

The Details:
((Olompali is pronounced All-Um-Paul-E))
We talk with the director and the producer of "Olompali - A Hippie Odyssey." 
In the mid-sixties, a wealthy businessman decides to "drop-out" of society and start a hippie commune. They formed their own school called Not-School, experimented with mind-altering substances, and threw parties attended by the Grateful Dead, Hells Angels, and hippies. Sounds like an average weekend at the radio station. . . 
For the 49'er fans - there's probably a few of them, right?
Barrett-Jackson's recent collector car auction sold the Grateful Dead's old equipment truck - A 1949 Studebaker! Get it? A 19-49!? 49'ers!? Flag on the play!?   
The truck sold for $29,700.00

An interview with the Barrett-Jackson guys:

Okay, for the 49'er fans
 - Levi Stadium loves their football. The San Francisco venue is breaking attendance records. The record-breaking turnouts at the stadium include: 
The National Championship Game with Clemson and Alabama  
Last November's 49'er / Green Bay Packers game
And Saturday's 49'er / Vikings game

Beyond that, the records are held by the Grateful Dead's 50th Anniversary concerts: Fare Thee Well

But Deadheads can't beat out the Hulkamaniacs. . . 
The record for the most people at Levi’s Stadium is WrestleMania 31

Week 05 // Rock Poster Artist Wes Wilson Passes

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:59

Featuring Grateful Dead shows where Wes Wilson designed the posters. Commentary from rock poster collectors and historians.

Dead-air-rose_small


The Details:
Concert Poster Artist, Wes Wilson, has passed away.

Wes Wilson pioneered what is now known as the psychedelic poster and generally acknowledged as the father of the 60s rock concert poster.

In '66, he designed the poster for what would become The Beatles' last major live performance.

In '67, one of his Grateful Dead posters made the cover of Life Magazine.

In '68, he received an award from the National Endowment for the Arts for “his contributions to American Art.”

Time magazine credited him as a leading poster artist.
The Chicago Tribune called him "founder of the hippie poster movement."
The Daily Californian described him as the most "widely known poster artist in the country."

His posters — noted by many for their "dazzling contrast" and near-illegibility to those without "psychedelic eyes" — have featured The Doors, the Grateful Dead, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, the Grass Roots and more.

Later, his artwork was exhibited at the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and more.

Wes Wilson’s style of filling all available space with lettering, of creating fluid forms made from letters, and using flowing letters to create shapes became the standard that most artists followed in order to put “psychedelic” in the art.

Historians, journalists and fellow artists credit Wilson with launching an entire art movement — and the fluid block lettering style that became synonymous with the '60s — as the father of the psychedelic rock concert poster.

Wes Wilson reportedly worked until his passing, creating poster art for Moonalice. Wilson was 82.

The show features commentary from many leading rock poster historians and collectors.

Week 6 // This week in Grateful Dead news

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:58

The band got air time in the big game, jerry's guitars are going back on stage, a politician stretched the truth about his Grateful Dead connections...

Dead-air-rose_small

The Details:
The group, Dark Star Orchestra, recreates the Grateful Dead concert experience. Their guitarist will play two guitars once owned and used by Jerry Garcia. A Martin D28 acoustic guitar a Fender Stratocaster — nicknamed “Alligator”
The shows are set for February 14th and 15th at The Warfield in San Francisco.
Both guitars were recently won at auction by Andy Logan. We chat with the guitars' new owner
https://deadairradio.org/2019/12/28/alligator-guitar-auction-andy-logan-giles-moon/  

In anticipation of Phil's 80th Trip Around The Sun (3/15), the Grateful Dead's bassist will recreate two of the only shows The Grateful Dead played on Phil's Birthday! (3/15/69 & 3/15/90). Phil Lesh’s Dead birthday shows are scheduled for Feb. 10 and 11 at Terrapin Crossroads.

Grace and Frankie, a Netflix Original Comedy, saw Frankie—played by Lily Tomlin— get in an argument about her Deadhead credentials! The "headier than thou" battle took place at a silent auction for a pair of Jerry Garcia‘s sneakers. Her opponent? A well-to-do character played by Michael McKean.

When the San Francisco 49'ers scored a touchdown in the big game, the music before the commercial break was from the Grateful Dead! Yes, the opening riffs of Bertha was used to segue from the game to commercials!


Bill Weld, former Massachusetts governor and who is now challenging President Donald Trump in the GOP primary, says he fooled people about his passion for the Grateful Dead.
The politician told The Boston Globe that they were his favorite musical group. He shook hands with the band backstage at one of their Boston Garden concerts. He even wrote an ode to Jerry Garcia in the Globe after the Grateful Dead frontman’s death in 1995. He was perhaps the state’s top “Deadhead.”
Recently he spoke about how he cultivated his Deadhead reputation to muddy his political image and appeal to the Bay State’s “ethnic” voters during his first campaign in 1990.


We hear something from the band's recent release out of the vault - Dave's Picks 33.

Plus, something from a Kansas City show - not because the Chiefs won the big game but because their baseball team announced their first ever Grateful Dead Night - May 22nd. Royals fans will be able to get a Grateful Dead Dancing Bear Bobble-Head!

Week 08 // The Hits Just Keep Comin'

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:59

The Grateful Dead now have 100 albums that have charted in the US and the hits just keep comin' - the band has plans to release a 15-disc box set

Dead-air-rose_small

The Grateful Dead have now charted 100 albums in the U.S.
The band's latest release, Dave's Picks 33, debuted at Number 45 on the Billboard 200 which makes it the group’s one hundredth title to break into the all-genre tally that ranks the most popular full-lengths in the U.S. every week.
Even some highly successful groups don’t make it to 10 charting titles so 100 is nearly unheard of. These days, the Grateful Dead rarely miss the Billboard 200 whenever they have something even slightly different to share with fans, and quite a few of their more recent releases have landed inside the upper half of the chart, beating out new projects from rappers and pop stars of today.
The Hits Just Keep Comin'
A 15-disc box set titled: "June 1976" will be released next month. With five previously unreleased shows from that hotly anticipated tour, June 1976 will revisit this dynamic chapter in the Dead’s history. 
In October of 1974, the Grateful Dead took a break from touring. The following year - 1975 - they played 4 "pop-up" shows. In June of '76, after a year and a half of taking it easy, the band was back on the road! 
The band started the month of June with two shows from Portland, OR which haven't been released. 
The Summer East Coast Tour had 17 shows: 
- 9 of those shows will now be officially released
- 6 of those shows have been partially released
- 5 of those shows will be on the new box set
- 3 of those shows have been previously released in their complete form
- 3 of those shows have never been released
By July of '76, the Grateful Dead were back in California.  
Grateful Dead fans love stats like that so it should come to no surprise there's a Grateful Dead Scholars Caucus. Every year in February some of the most nerdiest and headiest fans gather in New Mexico to talk about the Dead.

We're diving into the new 15-CD box set: June 1976!

Dead-air-rose_small

We're diving into the new 15-CD box set: June 1976! 
People who pre-order the set get singles or "selections from" the set. The box will be officially released March 20th! 


How's that social distancing going?
Also worth mentioning, COVID-19 aka the coranavirus, has forced Bob Weir to postpone his tour, Mickey Hart has cancelled some of his appearances, and Phil Lesh had to cancel his birthday shows over the weekend. So far the virus hasnt impacted Dead and Company tour dates. 


Record Store Day, originally set for April, has moved the date to Saturday, June 20. 


Record Store Day, taking into consideration the recommendations of doctors, scientists, the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the need to be good citizens of both local and worldwide communities. 


This year's release from The Grateful Dead will be just what the doctor ordered! The May '77 Buffallo show!

Week 13 // Covid-19, 76 & 90

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 58:00

We have Covid-19 coverage in the Grateful Dead world and some great tunes from '76 and '90!

Dead-air-rose_small

The Details: 

We get into a hefty jam from the latest box set: June 1976!


NBA Hall Of Famer, Famous Deadhead, and goofy basketball commentator, Bill Walton gives us a PSA on Covid-19!
. . . we also hear from an album where Walton wrote the liner notes. You think his play-by-play is interesting!? Wait until we share what he wrote in the album!



We pay tribute to producer Keith Olsen who passed away on March 9th, at the age of 74
He left behind an impressive body of work that includes over 200 production credits and work on countless hits. Including: Ozzy Osbourne, Santana, Scorpions, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Rick Springfield, Whitesnake, and Fleetwood Mac. Actually, he's the guy who got Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to join Fleetwood Mac! Oh and he produced Terrapin Station for The Grateful Dead.

In the program we talk about 'Peak Grateful Dead Eras.' 1977 comes to mind and it should be noted that Keith Olsen made the two drummers rehearse & tighten up - so he really helped shape the band's sound that they took on the road that year.


Another great Grateful Dead era: 1990! It's the 30 year anniversary of the Spring 1990 tour. We get into some of those sounds.


Quarantine and Chill? 
Here's an idea: Check out Long Strange Trip: Motion Picture. 4-hour documentary on the band. Many fans and people are checking it out. We hear some of the interview we did with the director.

Week 14 // Social Distancing & Deadheads

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:58

Shows that have a unique audience participation connection

Dead-air-rose_small

Social Distancing and Deadheads. . .


Shows with unique audience participation. For instance:


We hear a show where nobody was allowed in the venue. The show must go on!?  


One performance where over 100,000 people attended.


A performance where 3-million watched.


Official Releases featuring Audience Recordings.


We hear a show where people thought the performance was over but really it was only the end of the first set. The non-English speaking fans had to have somebody translate. Some fans stayed.


With social distancing, there's a new meaning to the term: "Take A Step Back" - A classic instance where the band encouraged audience members to 'take a step back' so fans wouldn't get crushed in the front row. Some fans listened.

A Beatles cover that got played in 1969 but not played again until 1990!


An acoustic highlight that was released last year for Record Store Day. The annual event which celebrates locally owned Record Stores happens every April. . . but this year. Record Store Day has been pushed back to June 20th.

What is COVID-19's impact on musicians who live for being on the road? Fans who enjoy live music? What is the Neuroscience of Social Distancing?

Dead-air-rose_small

What is the impact of COVID-19 and the musicians who live for being on the road? Fans who enjoy live music? What is the Neuroscience of Social Distancing? David Meerman Scott, co-author of "Fanocracy: Turning Fans Into Customers and Customers Into Fans," bridges the "space" between fans and artists. 

We also check in with The Garcia Project, a tribute band that recreates Jerry Garcia Band shows. They have a new album: Spirit: A Loving Tribute To Jerry Garcia And The Spiritual Songs He Performed."

Week 17 // COVID-19 Cancellations & Quarantine Entertainment

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 58:00

Dead and Company's summer tour has some cancelled dates and the release date for the Grateful Dead comic book has been postponed. But every silver lining has a touch of grey...

Dead-air-rose_small

The Bad News...
Dead & Company
, the latest Grateful Dead spin-off band, will not be playing their scheduled July shows at Folsom Field. The University of Colorado-Boulder has canceled all on-campus events until August due to the coronavirus.


- The Boulder shows were supposed to be the band’s fifth appearance at Folsom Field.
- That was the kickoff to the band’s summer tour.
- Their first show (2016) was the first time in a very long time where live music was back at the venue.


Stop the presses!? 
A Grateful Dead comic book / graphic novel: "Origins" takes an in depth and personal look at the formation of the band. The release was set for this month has been pushed back to June.


But there's Good News!
The Grateful Dead have announced a new streaming concert series “Shakedown Stream” that will feature a weekly live stream of one of the band’s classic live performances on the official Grateful Dead YouTube channel.


Bob Weir
will launch the Weir Wednesdays free livestream replay series which feature past Bob Weir and Wolf Bros performances.


Dead and Company
is doing One More Saturday Night - a Dead and Company show from their vault.


Each of those events are for Dead Heads of all ages to virtually congregate during the challenging days the world currently faces and connect in a familiar way, via the music of the Grateful Dead.

Wait!? I thought TV was bad for you!?
First off, is YouTube actually TV!? Secondly, we check in with David Meerman Scott. He wrote a book titled Fanocracy: Turning Fans into Customers and Customers into Fans. He discusses the neuroscience and benefits of watching a video and knowing other like-minded fans are doing the same activity.

Week 21 // Bob Dylan Covers

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 58:01

We celebrate Bob Dylan's Birthday! The legendary singer-songwriter was born May 24th.

Dead-air-rose_small

We hear Dylan covers with lead vocals from just about every member in the Grateful Dead! Jerry, Bobby, and Phil! Plus, some sweet Jerry-solo/side project stuff. 
Here's an interesting thought: When Jerry did his solo stuff, why did he play some Dylan songs that he never performed with the Grateful Dead!?

We get the answer from the author of "The Tragic Odes of Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead: Mystery Dances in the Magic Theater" . . . the author is also a professor so prepare to be schooled! No pun intended...

 
The author of "Dylan & the Grateful Dead: A Tale of Twisted Fate" tells us about the not-so-incredible album: "Dylan & The Dead" and the incredible Dylan and Dead show at Giants Stadium which was released last year.

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 58:01

Due to the spread of COVID-19, Record Store Day has spread into three Record Store Day "Drops." This year's releases will be sprinkled throughout the rest of the year.

"Sugar Magnolia" made its live debut on June 7, 1970 at the Fillmore West in San Francisco
X-Factor!
On June 12, 1980 the Grateful Dead performed at Portland Memorial Coliseum in Oregon just weeks after nearby Mount St. Helens erupted leading to the most deadly and economically destructive volcanic eruption in the history of the United States. According to legend, just as the Dead lit into “Fire On The Mountain” in Portland, Mount St. Helens had an aftershock and exploded once again.
. . . we check in with a Portland author and hipster, James Kirkland, about his new book: Fire On The Mountain - it's part of the Bill Walton Mysteries. Walton - NBA Hall Of Famer and former Portland Trailblazer. 
More Bad COVID-19 News: 
We get an update from a professor in Canada about the impact of COVID-19 on his campus. Also, he "lectures" us on his new book: "The Tragic Odes of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead"

Week 24 // 2020 Releases...so far

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 58:00

We made it to the half-way point of 2020. What a long strange trip it has been!

Dead-air-rose_small

Not only have we had some very crazy situations but we have had some crazy good releases from the Grateful Dead. So far - two shows from the band's vault, an incredible box set, shows re-issued on vinyl, and we've been getting unreleased shows on YouTube! 

If you're sick of 2020 already, we go deep in the history books. Before the Grateful Dead were named The Grateful Dead, they went by the name The Warlocks... The first Warlocks show was May 5th 1965 but the first show with all of the members, who would later become the Grateful Dead, took place was June 19th 1965. We hear something from an 1989 show where the band actually went back to their roots and promoted the show as: "Formerly The Warlocks"

Week 25 // Workingman's Dead 50th Anniv.

From Cory Daniels | Part of the Dead Air - Unofficial Grateful Dead Radio Program For Official Releases series | 57:59

On June 14, 1970, the Grateful Dead released Workingman’s Dead, an album that was unlike anything they’d ever done, one that showed the world a new side of the Dead.

Dead-air-rose_small

This week, we're playing live recordings of songs that were released on the studio album. 
On July 10th, the band will release a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition with an unreleased live show! Not only will the album be remastered but also available as a Picture Disc Vinyl Record! 
Many of the songs that are on the album were written by Robert Hunter. Last year, the man joined the great jam in the sky but he was born on June 23rd in 1941.

Dead-air-rose_small

Just when you thought this year couldn't get any crazier... The Grateful Dead have announced their own line of deodorant... We talk with the owner of the company who has created these five new scents. The new products include: Skull & Roses, Uncented, Sunshine, Timber, and Workingman's. North Coast Organics is operated by a son and mom team. The son shares how he went from "Rags to Riches" or "Smelly Rags to Tye-Dye" and how the co-owner, his mom, deserves all of the credit. 


The stroll down Shakedown Street continues...


There's a new book- "DEAD STYLE: A LONG STRANGE TRIP INTO THE MAGICAL WORLD OF TIE-DYE" An in-depth look at the influence of the Grateful Dead and hippie culture on contemporary fashion and street style by GQ’s style-in-the-wild correspondent and fashion expert: by Mordechai Rubinstein aka Mister Mort. The book will be released July 7, 2020

Beyond Description:


Workingman’s Dead turns 50!
A newly remastered version of the album also comes with an unreleased show recorded in 1971 at the Capitol Theatre. The Deluxe Edition of Workingman’s Dead is set for release on July 10 as a 3-CD set and digitally. The album was a commercial breakthrough for the band. After Workingman's Dead, the Grateful Dead were no longer "just a live act." Since the album was such a success, the new discovery of studio outtakes is giving fans a fly-on-the-studio-wall trip back in time. . .


Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Workingman’s Dead comes THE ANGEL’S SHARE, a revelatory audio discovery of more than two-and-a-half hours of unreleased studio outtakes from the album’s recording sessions. Compiled from dozens of 16-track reels that were recently discovered in unlabeled boxes, the collection includes outtakes for every song on the album, which have been unheard since they left the studio over 50 years ago.


WORKINGMAN’S DEAD: THE ANGEL’S SHARE is only available to stream but you'll hear tracks on the radio program!
