Playing Hunters' songs sequentially as debuted by The Grateful Dead.

Robert Hunter was the main lyricist for The Grateful Dead.  He died late last September.

As a tribute to his work in the band, I'm playing all of his songs, in the order the band debuted them.  Generally I'm NOT playing the first version, but sometimes it happens.

Part 1 was in October 2019 and covered from mid-1967 (Alligator) to mid-1969 (Easy Wind).

Part 2 was last November and started in late 1969 (Cumberland Blues) and stopped in early 1971 (Loser).

In March I broadcast part 3 which spanned from early 1971 (Wharf Rat) to early 1973 (They Love Each Other).

Enjoy!
