...such a great interview, Todd...as always...as "care-free" as they were, those punks did seem to care a whole lot about their hair... ;P
Avatar 3:41pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Spinning Giant: Indeed. The first time I interviewed Richard Hell we discussed how much time he spent making it look like he spent no time on his hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Doug in JC:

13th - Nightingale Lounge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Doug in JC:

Or just Nightingale's back when
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Spinning Giant:

Todd - that's awesome/hilarious!...no judgement - it's entirely conceivable to postulate that these icons we revere would potentially not reside nearly so close to the pantheon of coolness as they now do if it weren't for the agonizations over the hair..!...

Hence... "Hair" bands in the late 70s/early 80s...

Which has long been considered an insult...

...until now...?...
Avatar 3:46pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Doug in JC: Would not have been Nightingale's.

Todd, I don't think I've ever heard you play the Beatles before...generally speaking, and I know this might be contrary. but I've never really been a fan...grossly overplayed and overdone...Paul is a polarizing figure, to say the least...again, not a big fan...

@Joana it really was fantastic. I was pissed at myself because I didn't realize who was playing guitar for him until later.
  4:59pm Matt:

Great show! Love the interviews and history.
  4:59pm Joana:

@phat--who was the guitarist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm DonJuanTijuana:

No doubt Monoman was multi-talented...one of my favorite live performers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Stevel:

I'd forgotten/didn't know, she went on the SP tour. Wow.

Loved the interview and selections, Todd.

YES!!!!! the Grateful fuckin Dead straight up the ass of all the lame snobs who hate them. the Dead were PUNKS!!!!
Avatar 5:20pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I was really psyched to chat with Roberta. Glad you kids enjoyed it!
  5:21pm James:

really enjoyable thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Corey:

That was totally great. These interviews have been a real tonic during these strange days. A reminder that people used to do and experience things! Thanks TOPT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm medson:

Great conversation. Lots of good stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm bill hanke:

this is the best radio show ever!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm McGroovey:

Was that a Jerry Garcia guitar solo? Good. Admirably concise.

I love Roberta! Thanks for the interview. She’s kickass!

Really interesting interview, Todd! Thanks. It might inspire me to go buy a camera!

  5:24pm phat:

I gotta say, as a newish convert from the anti-Dead world, this is terrible. They really got a lot better.

My landlady is a photographer, shot pics of Nick Cave, L7, Green Day, other LA artists...in the 90s and 00s
  5:26pm rollycoaster:

The only dead that matters to me is Pigpen Dead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm McGroovey:

I don't think it's terrible. Would have been better with more guitar solos and fewer reps of vamps on the "in the midnight hour" line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm bill hanke:

when Please Kill Me came out audience Q&A i asked Legs about the Dead being original punks and he got mad. weird clothes, weird hair, drugs, dancing, anti-social = PUNK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm McGroovey:

But it is getting to be to long already. I'm crying "uncle!"
  5:28pm rollycoaster:

Yeah they got so “good” that their final form is The Oldies Revue with John Mayer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm McGroovey:

Too

My auto-correct is my enemy.
  5:29pm phat:

@McGroovey it just seems aimless and the vocals... I mean, I'm sure people love this. I've heard plenty Dead that I've really dug, though. Actually, on the Avant Ghetto.
  5:29pm Elle Tor's Husband:

The Dead would have been a lot different band if Pigpen had lived. I hear a more British Invasion thing with his vocals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Matt Fiveash:

Having a rave up with the Grateful Dead
  5:30pm rollycoaster:

70s Dead is as abysmal as it gets, with very few exceptions. They only got worse from there. Now they are literally the Rock A Fire Explosion Band. Pigpen was the heart and soul of this band. When he died, they died.
Avatar 5:31pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Matt Fiveash: Maybe rave down?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm McGroovey:

You feel alright. I believe you. Now stop. I got it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Frank Zaatar:

Actualy, this is the least irritating Pigpen rap I've ever heard. But then again, I'm theguy who was sorry when Tom Constanten left the band.
  5:32pm Mr C:

Hey, that guitar player could've been a contender if he stuck to it..
  5:32pm rollycoaster:

@Elle Tor EXACTLY. They were such a high energy band at that time. Some sets rival the MC5. 4/22/69 at the Ark in Boston is a great example of this.
  5:33pm Vistavision:

You rock well Todd!
  5:33pm rollycoaster:

@McGroovy do more drugs

I used to party with Jerry in the 60s. boy do I love the big hairy zaftig rockers ;)
  5:35pm phat:

I may actually be going back to my hating the Dead place again. Lol. No.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Frank In Queens:

Wow, I'm surprised that version didn't take us right to the end of the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm McGroovey:

I saw Tom Constanten playing a solo improv set(or maybe in a duo with Oliver Lake?) at the Leonard St Knitting Factory, opening for someone else (don't remember who). I do remember being surprised that Tom C and Oliver weren't actually good, or at least they weren't that night.
Avatar 5:36pm 8track:

Lol, zaftig rockers - how about Popa Chubby? :o)
  5:36pm phat:

Jeff! His Sunday came along for me at a perfect time.
Avatar 5:37pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Frank In Queens: Cheryl thought it was going to take us to the midnight hour.
  5:39pm Mr C:

Amen to that Todd!
  5:40pm Elle Tor's Husband:

All said and done I love the Dead. I'm an old Punk Rocker so to admit that is sacrilege. Scarlet Begonias baby!
  5:41pm Andres:

Great interview, Todd! And enjoyed the Conklin shout out! Some great Sunday nights were had with his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Frank In Queens:

This Cub Scout Bowling Pins EP is better than the last proper GBV album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm DjLorraine:

Cool interview again TY
  5:42pm phat:

@Andres I bought more records after hearing them on his show last year than really just about anything else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm patrick321:

Hey Todd I've been in my car so late to the board but I really enjoyed the interview.
  5:42pm rollycoaster:

I only really care about the first few records but aside from those I am totally ok with never hearing the Dead again. In fact, I would support legislation to put a moratorium on them as it seems to be a societal problem again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Dennis Diken:

really dug the interview, swell show all around Todd! as per....
Avatar 5:44pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks Dennis! Can't wait for Denny's Den on The Rock and Soul Stream Wednesday at 2!
