Growing up, I was a radio nerd, and I spent countless hours listening to local stations but also spinning the tuner dial on my stereo looking for other sounds and storytellers. In the late 80s, I came across David Gans and the Grateful Dead Hour, on 97 Rock out of Buffalo. I was transfixed as much by the songs of the Grateful Dead as I was by Gans' stories and presentation. Since then my appreciation for the Grateful Dead has grown immeasurably and I've continued to follow Gans' career. Imagine my delight when I was able to get him for the podcast. Between the Grateful Dead Hour, his show on SiriusXM, Tales from the Golden Road, his books and hustling his own musical career.
