Geez, now I wish I had satellite:

SIRIUS Celebrates Weir at 60

Tuesday October 16th will mark the 60th birthday of Mr. Robert Hall Weir. SIRIUS Satellite Radio’s Grateful Dead Channel will mark the occasion with a day of programming devoted to Bobby, including a one hour program hosted by Weir himself. The action will kick off at 3 am ET as the channel will air the celebrated Grateful Dead performance that took place on Weir's 42nd birthday, the 10/16/89 Meadowlands show that featured the second "Dark Star" in five years after the band re-introduced it during its Hampton Coliseum Warlocks show on 10/9/89. Tuesday's Weircentric offerings also will include an interview with David Gans as well as music from RatDog, Kingfish, and Bobby & The Midnights.

Happy birthday, Bobby :) ! (I remember that being yelled out at the Brendan Byrne show in 1989 before they launched into Dark Star at the beginning of 2nd set).

I used to be indifferent to Bobby's playing until the day I read in an interview how he'd understood his playing in terms of "fitting in between lead guitar and keyboards" - in other words, having to work with the most expressive triads and the like, in the most tasteful ways possible, which totally exploded how I understood guitar to work.

I think I really became a Bobby fan with the China Cat jam from 1989-08-19 .
