Interview: Howard Weiner, author of Dylan & The Dead

Cory Daniels interview with Howard Weiner

Grateful-dead-logo_02_0_small A Tale of Twisted Fate chronicles Bob Dylan’s rapid ascent to immortality as the preeminent songwriter of his time, and contrasts that with the Grateful Dead’s long strange trip, during which they went from being a psychedelic band with a cult following to the most popular touring act in America. When Dylan & the Dead launched their historic 1987 tour, Dylan’s popularity was declining and he was out of touch with his muse. On the other hand, the Grateful Dead basked in the unexpected commercial success of their hit MTV video “Touch of Grey.” Inspired by his time with the Dead, Dylan experienced a rebirth as a performing artist. A Tale of Twisted Fate explores the influences, innovations, and legacies of the iconic careers of Bob Dylan and Jerry Garcia.

Dave's Picks Volume 24: Berkeley, CA, 8/25/72 | Grateful Dead

From KISU | Part of the Dead Air (Grateful Dead) series | 58:32

Dave's Picks Volume 24 is a three-CD live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded at the Berkeley Community Theatre in Berkeley, California on August 25, 1972.

Grateful-dead-logo_02_0_small An often overlooked gem from '72 (who's to blame with that rich pool of excellence), 8/25/72 Berkeley Community Theatre finds the Dead laid back and in the comfort zone of home. While one might think this would make the night too relaxed, the band fall in line with their "West Coast best" paradigm. The output is fresh, reaching the outer depths on repertoire classics like "The Other One" and "Playing In The Band" and finding the intricately nuanced heart of emotive numbers like "He's Gone" and "Bird Song." Fans of Europe '72 and Veneta, Oregon will not be disappointed! - Dead.net / Grateful Dead's official website

Week 25 // An Anniversary, Birthday, and a Movie

From KISU | Part of the Dead Air (Grateful Dead) series | 58:00


Robert Hunter, who wrote many classic lyrics for the Dead, will be 78 (June 23)
June 20th is the 50th anniversary of Aoxomoxoa, the band's 3rd studio album - pronounced OX-O-MOX-O-UH. The latest release comes with the '69 mix and the '71 remix. We take an auditory field trip into the different mixes. P.S. - The '69 mix is far more psychedelic.   

The 2019 Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies is scheduled for August 1 (Jerry's Birthday).. It will feature the band's June 17, 1991 concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This is the first time "Meet Up At the Movies" is going global! The concert film will be at theaters world-wide! 
Last week, Dead and Company performed To Lay Me Down for the first time at Wrigley Field in Chicago. John Mayer played pedal steel guitar on the track! 
We have Dead and Co digital downloads and copies of Aoxomoxoa to giveaway here - https://deadairradio.org/swag/
