“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, August 6th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Monday, August 6, 2018

“There Is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert!”

By the time I broadcast this evening’s concert(s), my heartfelt thanks to everyone who made Sunday’s 10thy Annual “Very Merry Jerry Day” not only happen, but to be another success, brought about by not only all the wonderful volunteers and bands, but also to the greater Sarasota-area Deadheads, without whom we would just be a bunch of folks with a far-out stereo!

We aren’t finished with Jerry, yet, though…two of the earliest evenings I can find in circulation, before they went into regular gigging…
