009 – Jesse Jarnow & 1967 Part 1

This go ‘round we have a special guest joining the Brokedown Podcast: author, Deadhead, and WFMU DJ, Jesse Jarnow. In this episode we learn a bit about Jesse’s personal history as a Deadhead, his path to becoming a guy tapped by the Grateful Dead to write liner notes for some of their recent archival releases, and his books: Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo And The Rise Of Indie Rock (amazon) and Heads: A Biography Of Psychedelic America (amazon). Then we dive into the archives and talk about the Grateful Dead in 1967. A formative year that, due to a spotty tape record, is somewhat mysterious.
