“Ripper’s Rarities”, Friday, August 11th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Friday, August 11, 2017

Join me, Mark Binder, on Friday, Aug. 11th, 7-9p Eastern, when I sit in on short notice for Russ Yodice on “Ripper’s
Rarities”, who was called out of town unexpectedly.

Since I am already scheduled to sit in for Russ next Friday, August 18th(and will be featuring tunes, as
far as I can deduce, that were never released commercially in any way, shape or form, over the entire
three days at Woodstock), I thought I would broadcast tonight all the tunes that the Grateful Dead either
played or covered, covered by performers at Woodstock, August 15-17, ‘69.

Titled “Dead-Wood”-Stock, the first hour we’ll hear Arlo Guthrie; Joan Baez; Creedence Clearwater
Revival; Joe Cocker; The Band; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Jimi Hendrix; and Jerry Garcia and Rosalie
Sorrels, all in the first hour.

The second hour will feature the set of The Grateful Dead, who refused to allow any of their set to appear
in the film. This set is legendary for being the worst show the Dead ever did, in their own opinion. Jerry
Garcia referred to it as such on late night TV in the early 1980s. I myself have no complaints, but, then
again, it IS The Grateful Dead!
