Radio Or Not #6- KSCA 8-9-95 The Day Jerry Garcia Died

On August 9, 1995 I hosted mornings at Los Angeles' KSCA fm 101.9 along with newsman Chuck Moshontz. It was just like any other morning, until about 8:30... when we got the news that Jerry Garcia had died.

As I did most mornings, I had an aircheck tape running. Today is the 10th anniversary of Jerry's death, so I pulled out the tape, and have immortalized it here.

As it's just a radio aircheck tape recorded on a skimmer, you won't hear the full songs. But you will hear what went on at the only Los Angeles radio station who seemed to care....

As a Deadhead, I will never forget that day. People had called me to tell me that Jerry had passed, but it didn't totally hit home until I got in my '79 Volvo and heard 101.9 playing The Dead that I knew it was true :-(
