WSLR is slowly coming back with a very sparse number of live studio programmers, albeit with very specific instructions as to how to protect both ourselves and our fellow WSLR volunteers.
I was gonna open tonight’s show with something entirely different, but then I found out that long-time friend,long-time Deadhead, founder of “Where Will We Go Tonight”, and literally friend to everyone, passed awaythis past week. So I have to tell my story:
Way back, when WSLR was still a kitten, broadcasting from the Myrtle studio, and before there was a “WhereWill We Go Tonight”, Don called me. He was “consolidating” things, found that he had two big Jerry Garciadolls, and would I like one. I asked if I could give it to the station studio. he said, “No”. so Jerry has sat next mefor every show since that night he came in(save the past virus-challenged months). Don will always be with me.Condolences to Joni and all the families and friends.

REVIEW: scarlet>fire if nothing else…good sound… similar to the tape i’ve had for years, but cleaner. excellent scarlet>fire in what i would say wasTHE year for them (not the biggest ’77 fan here). Brent rips it up.
REVIEW: great stuffGreat set list! I went to the set list program site and put in Lost Saint, Scarlet Fire, Playin’, and Dew–thinkingthat that would be something of a dream show for me–and this came up. It’s a great set list–I love opening theset with Lost Saint–and very nicely played throughout. Nice quality recording, too. I was at the Aladdin in’83–trippy place for a Dead show. This one is better.
REVIEW: Alladin DewJerry was in good form August ‘81. Then there were the Greeks!
REVIEW: Vegas Baby!Grateful Dead on the Vegas Strip. What a trip! Great show!Wow still have this button from this show. After the show IPlayed the slots with Bill Kreutzman and his wife. I invited them to come horseback riding when they came toRochester for an upcoming show and he said they didn’t have time. I said when do you have time to do thingsyou want to do and he said “we are doing it! Touring and playing music That all we want to do” Then I snuck into see Wayne Newton sing a couple of songs. Won money and diverted to the Grand Canyon for sunrise andcolors!
