The 13th episode of Bob Weir’s Weir Here talk show, which airs via TRI Studios each Wednesday night at 5:30PM PT / 8:30PM ET is shaping up to be the best one yet. As previously reported, Weir’s Grateful Dead / Furthur band mate Phil Lesh will make his Weir Here debut this Wednesday and additional guests will include Grateful Dead roadie Steve Parish and GD legacy manager David Lemieux.
Today, TRI has announced the topic for this week’s episode of Weir Here – Pigpen! Weir, Lesh, Parish and Lemieux will discuss keyboardist Ron “Pigpen” McKernan’s contributions to the Dead before he left the band in 1972 before his tragic death a year later.
