“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, January 4th, 7-9pm Eastern
Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, January 3, 2021
“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
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.
And WSLR has now opened new Studio “B”, adjacent to the Joe Jacco On-Air Studio, wherein we will
be able to alternate shows in-house without programmer contacts.

The “Prime Directive” of “Yesterday’s Dead Today” is “a concert from today in history” when it
comes to broadcasting a Dead concert…when that doesn’t pan out(and I don’t repeat concerts), I go to
my “Dead Family List”, and can cheat a few days either way. When that, too, fails, I go to the trusty
internet and poke around. And so we have tonight’s broadcast…guess what type of music they play!
True to bluegrass, the jams are epic…and everyone who plays strings(and that includes all on stage)
gets to play epic leads as well.
