Before midnight Eastern strikes, we want to wish Bob Weir – leader of Ratdog, rhythm guitarist for the Grateful Dead, songwriter, singer, controversial figure, spouse and dad – the happiest of birthdays. (Happies to my little brother, also born 16 October, too!!!) My brother hasn’t got any LPs out there, so it’s hard to pay him tribute on a radio station, but that’s not the case with Mr. Weir. Starting at 11:45 pm Eastern (before the 16th turns into the 17th; forgive the lateness – just got home from the shitjob), it’s a LIVE hour on Grateful Dread Radio as we spin songs by Weir alone, with the Dead and with the Dog. Enjoy!!!
