The Golden Road for 7:00pm on Sep 15th, 2017

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Tonight the Golden Road takes us to San Jose, California for music from the one-off Jerry Garcia Band show at the Saddle Rack. “The Rack,” as it was known, opened in 1976. It was a hot spot for Country Western music and with the club’s two stages, six bars and a mechanical bull (hmm, I wonder if Jerry took a turn?), the venue was the largest of its sort in NorCal. JGB’s March 7th, 1982 Saddle Rack show has to be one of the most unusual venues the band ever played and Jerry definitely came to play as we shall hear this evening!
