We’ll hear the entire 11/8/87 show over the next few weeks.

This is part 1 of a two-part interview with Tom Davis. From a May 4 post on this blog:

Tom Davis has a new memoir, Thirty-Nine Years of Short-Term Memory Loss. Tons of great Grateful Dead stories, including a wonderful description of the 2/9/73 show at Stanford’s Maples Pavilion with its sprung floor! I interviewed the Emmy-winning former Saturday Night Live writer/performer at my house a few weeks ago. You can hear it in its entirety right here (66 minutes).

The Grateful Dead Hour is made possible in part this week by:

Rhino Records, announcing the DVD release of Last Days of the Fillmore, with live performances by the Grateful Dead, Santana, Quicksilver, Jefferson Airplane, and others, plus backstage footage of Bill Graham and the musicians during the final week of San Francisco’s legendary music venue.
