You’ve heard all or most of the tracks from the amazing album Garcia Songbook by Joe Craven and the Sometimers. The band performed live in the KPFA Performance studio in Berkeley on the day of our annual 16-hour fund-raising marathon, and we’ll hear more highlights from that set in the weeks to come.

The unreleased live Grateful Dead recording we’re enjoying right now was recorded by Larry Oppenheimer. It is the first known PCM digital recording of the band. Charlie Miller restored and remastered the recording (from VHS cassettes!). Our great thanks to both men for sharing this recording with us!

Support for the Grateful Dead Hour comes this week from:

Dead and Company – Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, John Mayer, Jeff Chimenti and Oteil Burbridge – on tour from May 31 to July 6. Complete details and ticketing at deadandcompany.com. That’s Dead and Company, on tour May 31 to July 6.
