  • Jake D Feinberg quotes John Scher via via facebook post "I met Bert [Holman] when he became concert chairman at American University. He was somehow clever enough to get a "huge budget" from the University to put on big concerts. I think we had Leon Russell, I think we had Chicago. At that point I started to have a very good relationship with The Grateful Dead. They had the budget so we booked The Dead to play on the Athletic Field. Free Concert ... So the show went up and there's this huge throng of people. At this point The Dead were still playing theaters and had not graduated to arenas yet. But it was free and in Washington where there's a whole bunch of other colleges as well as American. I don't know how many kids were on this field but it was as far as the eye could see. 30 or 40 yards from the stage was the tower for the University Radio Station. When the band was getting ready to go on stage Jerry Garcia plugged in his amp and loud and clear through his amp came the college radio station. It sort of freaked everybody out. They made some sort of announcement about technical difficulties. After about a half hour, Ramrod, who was the most key GD roadie figured out how to stop the radio station from coming through Jerry's amp and the show went on."
