“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, October 31st, 7-9pm Eastern
Written by Mark Binder on Sunday, October 30, 2022
I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”
“Yesterday’s Dead Today’s” Halloween “special”!
Before tonight’s concert, a word of apology…one of my main tenants of this show is that “music
must have been played by The Dead, by one or more members of The Dead, or, members of Dead
Family bands, etc….” However, tonight is Halloween, and I might not ever get this chance again…
One of my favorite groups is Fairport Convention, and my favorite tune of theirs is “Tam Lin”.
“Tam Lin” has been described as “the greatest Halloween song of all time”. Additionally, one of
my other favorite groups is The Slambovian Circus Of Dreams. I had scheduled this tune to open
tonight’s broadcast long before I knew that The Circus would be appearing at Fogartyville on
