'Who Needs Songs?' Special - Part 2

Air date: 
Sat, 08/16/2014 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Short Description: 
A Grateful Dead show without any songs.
Today, I'll offer a continuation of my May program when I tried to answer "What would this show sound like if I played plenty of music, just no songs?"

The Grateful Dead are synonymous with extended improvisational jamming.  So I'm playing nothing but prime examples of this. And as an added twist, I've chosen excerpts in such a way that it will very difficult for the listener to determine what song the jam is in, came out of or is going into. Or so I think.

Former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart on his new Smithsonian Collection of the world's music

program date: 
Sat, 10/15/2011

Most of you are familiar with Mickey Hart for his decades of work as one of The Grateful Dead's drummers. 

But did you know about his work with the Smithsonian Institution, specifically with their Smithsonian Folkways music label?

Well earlier this week, the Smithsonian released the Mickey Hart Collection featuring 25 albums drawn from ‘The World,’ a series Hart curated that incorporated his solo projects, other artists’ productions, and re-releases of out-of-print titles. Six of the twenty-five albums form the “Endangered Music Project,” a collaboration between Mickey Hart and the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which presents recordings from musical traditions at risk.

And on this week's installment of Grateful Dead &  Friends, Mickey joined us live to talk about the Collection, his new band, tour and forthcoming album.

You can freely download 10 files and stream 25 others from the Collection and watch a behind-the-scenes tour of Smithsonian Folkways with Mickey.

This month, We finally got completely through 7-15-84 Greek Theater, Berkeley by playing the two encores: Brokedown Palace, and Johnny B. Goode. We then launched into a special program that featured Steve Kimock, and the band Crazy Engine. The centerpiece of the show was a live on air phone interview with Steve Kimock from San Francisco. All this to celebrate the arival of Steve, and Co. to Portland for the first show since Zero played at the Chrystal Ballroom. We also enjoyed playing various cuts from Kimock's live repetoir from 1993 Zero, to the present day Crazy Engine. It's good to have Steve back in Portland at The Aladdin Theater 4-3-09 8:00 pm!

Hi again! As promised, here I am filling in for Andrew "Unbroken Chain" Geller, who will fill my spot next week on the 28th.  Also, as promised, we set out to play as much of the second set of 7-15-84 Berkeley Greek as we could.  We started out with a special tribute to Tom Donahue, who made the Grateful Dead's "Autumn Records Demo" possible.  The first cut was "Fresh Garbage" from Spirit.  Then a little radio spot for The Family Dog in San Francisco promoting The Youngblood's show there that weekend, followed by The Youngblood's "Get Together".  We filled out the show with July 15, 1984. Also in attendance were Scott Gillan from The Jerry Garcia Birthday Band, our old friend Tom Chiles, and Honord Collective Member Alicia Olson.  Too much fun!!!

Todays show began with "Scetches of China" from The J.A. related album Baron Von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun. Following "China" is three cuts from Grateful Dead live from the Euphoria Ballroom in San Francisco 7-14-70 acoustic. "Dire Wolf" preceded by some hilarious stage banter, "Dark Hollow", then "How Long Blues".  We then began again with Berkeley Greek 7-15-84 sbd. As you remember, we started 7-15-84 set one on 12-27-08. Plagued with digital disturbances, we decided to start the set over again on today's show. We got as far as "China Cat > I Know You Rider" in the second set. For the benefit of those recording this show, I will most likeley start set 2 over again on my next show, which is 2-21-09. I traded days with Andrew Geller whom will be in the chair on 2-28-09. See you on the 21st of February!! Set 2 of 7-15-84 is very entertaining!

Holiday Greetings from Begonia Studios!!  We began our traditional Holiday broadcast with Baby Blue, the encore of the second set of August 4th Cal Expo Sacramento that was started on my last show in November.  From there, we went back to 1964 in Palo Alto, California for two cuts from the Mother Mcree's Uptown Jug Champions, which were some of the founding members of the good ol' Grateful Dead. We heard a light hearted "Boo Break", which right away shows what kind of stage presence these guys have always had.  After that, we heard Memphis Tennessee.  After that, we heard a cut from Dan Hicks, and the Hot Licks live album "Alive And Lickin'".  The cut was "Payday Blues".  Next up was a cut from Jerry Garcia, and David Grisman live from the Warfield Theater in San Francisco on February 2nd, 1991, "Off To Sea Once More".

At this point, We played some cuts from Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman's "Happy Holidays" release, a collection of tunes put together as a gift for vearious friends, and etc. of Weir. It was recorded during the "Scaring The Children" era in December of 1991.

For the bulk of the program, We played a nice acoustic set from 12-26-69 in Dallas, Texas - S.M.U. McFarland Auditorium. (See below for Set list)

To finish off the show, We began a first set from The Berkeley Greek Theater in Berkeley, California. July 15th, 1984. We got the first two songs in; Dancin' In The Street > Bird Song.  I noticed a couple of digital disturbances in the two cuts, so on my next show, I will most likely play the two cuts again, as to keep the tapers happy.

We at Begonia Studios wish you and yours a safe and healthy holiday season, and we'll see you in January.

Duane

 

 

Comments

I love dead

 I always listen to your dead program on sat!

Great!

Stefano...from Rome, Italy.

 

Solo Jerry At Passaic, NJ

Hey there Sun Lee/ GD&F DJ's...

First, thanks for volunteering. KBOO is the best, thanks to all you wonderful volunteers.

Second, I wanted to make a new comment, this somehow seems to be a reply. Whoops! My skills at these things are pretty slim, my apologies....

Third and main point: I LOVED the (solo acoustic) Jerry set last week, but when I clicked on the link in the PLAYLISTS tab, it played another (GD electric) set. Did I do something wrong? Or perhaps the link is wrong?

I'd love to have access to the Jerry set. Please advise!

Thanks & happy new year to all....

 

 

 

 

Play more GRATEFUL DEAD dammit!

 Hey Sun,

How many GD songs did you play today performed by the Grateful Dead? I counted four (five if you include Hey Jude.). Play more GD man, it's called the "Grateful Dead and Friends" not "Bands who wish they were the Grateful Dead."

I like the show and I like KBOO but I (and most of my friends who also listen) want to hear the GRATEFUL DEAD, not Furthur, not Widespread Panic, or some local jam band. GRATEFUL DEAD, more please. We don't want to hear other bands playing Grateful Dead songs (Widespread Panic) but the actual GD playing GD music.

Thanks.

Rodrigo

 

 

GD marathon

I'd like to request some shows for the GD marathon this weekend. I'd love to hear 12-31-83 Civic Aud  and/or  8-28-82 Veneta OCF grounds. Do you have the SBD's from the Further shows from Oakland w/ John Kadlecik. -thanks, Jakester, Vancouver, WA

Saturday 8/22/09

Duane, sorry I missed your email/show. Perhaps we can schedule another time to do it. Life has been way hectic, but will slow down soon :o)

Chris

The Grateful Dead

Hey, Duane!

Caught your show today for the first time since moving back to the NW after a 33 year exile in Wyoming. In early 1969 (40 years ago!), I was a senior at Columbia River High in Vancouver-new the year before from Connecticut-and not allowed to driver over to Portland after dark. My girlfriend really wanted to go to a concert at this place I'd never heard of to see two bands I'd never heard of. Her Mom consented to drive she, I and her younger sister over and pick us up afterward. Great concert, great bands, great venue-though as a suburban teen, I was a bit shocked by the older hippies and some of their behavior. We, as minors, got kicked out about 10 or 10:30, but it was a memorable evening. The Grateful Dead and the Quicksilver Messenger Service at The Crystal Ballroom!

Enjoyed your show, and will catch it again. Thanks, Beau in Vancouver

Matt's Birthday today!!!!!!!!!

When I spoke with you I did not know it was your special LIFE Day!!!! Wish you peace, joy and good vibes for your DAY and beyond!! Namaste' Sheri Hoffman (your pesky cd addict). A very Happy BirthDAY and many more to come!!
