David Dodd

On Sunday, June 14th, Gil Mansergh hosts a special Grateful Dead version of Word By Word Conversations With Writers on North Bay Public Media KRCB-FM. His guest is librarian and cultural historian David Dodd, author of a massive book with the rather long title: The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics: The Collected Lyrics of Robert Hunter and John Barlow, Lyrics to All Original Songs With Selected Traditional and Cover Songs.

In addition to being a Dead Head, David is also the Collections Manager for the Sonoma County Library System and is especially interested in identifying and collecting the work of Sonoma County writers, musicians and visual artists.

The conversation is enhanced with snippets of music from some of David's favorite songs and tales of the Dead to which "only David Dodd has approved access."
