Silver Nine Volt Heart celebrates Jerry Garcia and the Days Between, Aug. 4, 2022

For a special edition of Silver Nine Volt Heart, Rodriguez digs into his archives from The Golden Road (the Grateful Dead-based show he hosted on KDRT for a decade)  to celebrate Jerry's 80th birthday and the annual tradition, the "Days Between." The Ol' Maestro was born on Aug. 1, 1942 and checked out on Aug. 9, 1995. Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be here ... for sure!

Enjoy the two hours of cool sounds + words by Jerry all lined up for a nice fat trip on the airwaves. There will be plenty of the good ol' GD, tunes by the Jerry  Garcia Band, acoustic stoke with Garcia & Grisman, a couple of recorded interviews with Jerry, and much more.

Greetings and Salutations Rodriguez,

Thanks for playing The Grateful Dead. As a dead person myself, I could really relate to the sentiment of Playing In The Band. In the end, each of us has a particular note to play in the web of life. Your repeated dedication to The Dead and bygones long ago, keep you qualified to remain amongst the living as a true Champion! May Your Bones Rest Easy In The KDRT!
