The 9th Day
We've made it to The 9th Day of Jerry, together!
Listeners from around the World have joined Radio Free Nachlaot by the hundreds since August 1st (remember Day 1? It seems like so long ago now!) to celebrate Jerry Garcia in all his permutations.
We heard the last Jerry Garcia Band Show (The Warfield 4/23/95), then we heard the last Grateful Dead Show (Soldier's Field, Chicago 7/9/95) earlier this afternoon.
Now we're playing "Comes a Time" the Jerry Garcia Tribute Concert that took place in 2005. Warren Haynes, Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Jimmy Herring and more got together at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on 9/24/05 to bid goodnight and goodbye to Jerry.
At 8pm tonight (Jerusalem Time of course) "Reb Moishe" - that is to say Moshe Pesach Geller, World-renown Deadhead and Universally-known Shlomo Carlebach hassid - will be IN THE HOUSE with Steve and Lorelai as we do our "GRAND FINALE YARTZEIT SHOW" Live tonight from 8pm through Midnight. Moishe is going to bring down and give over "The Torah of Jerry" and play us his fantasy / dream Show ... the one that never happened, but should have.
Will there be life after Jerry? Of course there will be - don't forget, "The Music Never Stopped!" Stay tuned for WHAT'S NEXT - Jerry Isru Chag - AND BEYOND?
