PASSENGER

A couple of months ago I got a package from Candace Brightman, who was the Grateful Dead’s lighting designer for more than 20 years. The box contained a handful of cassettes she had found in a closet, and she thoughtfully sent them along to me in case there was anything worth putting on the radio. Here’s one of those tapes – set 1 of December 2, 1981 at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. We’ll hear the rest of set 1 next week (but I don’t have set 2, sorry to say). Enjoy!

Support for the Grateful Dead Hour comes from:

The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Lettuce comes to The Cap on Saturday, 4/20 with their classic funk, smooth and soulful grooves, and hip-hop-inspired beats. On Thursday, April 25, Nile Rodgers & CHIC come for a disco dance party at The Cap. The Fab Faux play fan favorites and music from the Beatles solo years at The Cap on Saturday, May 4. Every Wednesday is Grateful Dead night at Garcia’s, The Capitol Theatre’s venue-within-a-venue. Events, information, and ticketing at thecapitoltheatre.com.

Airshow Mastering, putting the finishing touches on new and classic music, including recent releases by the Grateful Dead, Mandolin Orange, Robben Ford and Bill Evans, Keller Williams, Fragile Thunder, and Victor Krummenacher.
