“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, January 28th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, January 27, 2019

There is NOTHING” like a Grateful Dead Concert!”

Still no Grateful Dead “from today in history” that I can broadcast, so we can ease back in with some Jerry and John:

Jerry Garcia & John Kahn

January 31, 1986
Master Audience Cassette
: Nak 300s > Sony D5

Extreme mix & level fluctuations @ start, obviously from the PA given the crowd’s response as things improve. This then becomes quite a nice recording!
