Interview: Corry Arnold of Lost Live Dead

Part 2 18:49

Dead and Company 6/18/17 Fenway Park, Boston

A two-“Dark Star” show – my kind of GD radio!

The Corry Arnold interview was recorded during the annual KPFA Grateful Dead fund-raising marathon on March 11. The voices of Tim Lynch and Joe Burke are heard briefly during the conversation. Lost Live Dead is a seriously deep dive into the history of the Grateful Dead and related musical enterprises – well worth a regular visit.

The 6/18 Dead and Company show is available for download in a variety of formats. All the other shows from the current tour are also available at
