Beyond Description. . . 

We check in with the Owsley Stanley Foundation! Owsley, also known as Bear, was an audio engineer and chemist. He was a key figure in the San Francisco Bay Area hippie movement during the 1960s and played a pivotal role in the decade's counterculture. Plus, he was the Grateful Dead's soundman. 

Bear recorded many Grateful Dead shows. The Owsley Stanley Foundation talk about how some of these recordings were stored in banana boxes!? 

The latest release from the Grateful Dead vault - Dave's Picks Vol. 43 - was a banana box classic.

Dead Air with Cory Daniels on WRWO 94,5 FM - July 8, 2022 

The Tapes are in! 

Beyond Description. . . 

We get into GarciaLive Vol. 18 - the latest release from the Garcia Vault. A live archival release featuring the full, two-set Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders November 2nd, 1974 Keystone Berkeley concert. 

The latest Grateful Dead vault release is Volume 42 - a Winterland show from 1974. 

Mojo Magazine's new issue comes with a Grateful Dead CD! Mojo is a popular music magazine published monthly in the United Kingdom and many US newsstands carry the latest issues. The album: "Mojo Presents Grateful Dead: From The Bay To The Pool (Live 1971-1978)" is available with the June 2022 issue. We get into the CD! 

We talk with author, John Kilbride, who just wrote "The Golden Road: The Recorded History of the Grateful Dead." The book follows the history of the band with their official releases. With a reputation built on the band's stellar live performances, it was only in their later years and after the death of their iconic frontman Jerry Garcia, that they began the release of over 100 recordings from their vaults that documented the magic they produced on stage. This book charts the history of the band through these hundreds of releases, as well as their studio recordings and their key solo albums, that show what made this pioneering band unique.
