"Very Merry Jerry Day"

Break out the tie-dye and hula hoops for WSLR's 10th annual celebration of Jerry Garcia. Jerry Garcia was born on August 1, 1942, and lived to become one of the most famous counterculture icons of the 20th Century. Playing guitar and singing for his band, The Grateful Dead, as well as several others, Garcia took his hippie movement from the 60's into the 90's, inspiring the following of millions of long-haired, tie-dye t-shirted, carefree "Deadheads." Musicians honoring the Dead this year at Very Merry Jerry Day will include the Ship of Fools, the Al Fuller Band, and Stumble Creek.
