mvyradio.com will broadcast this Sunday's Bob Weir & Ratdog "Special Tribute to Jack Kerouac" show from Lowell, Massachusetts as part of its "On the Road" series. The program will begin with Weir reading from Kerouac's works, scheduled for a 6pm start with the Weir/Ratdog musical performance afterward. Links to the stream will be available on the home page of www.mvyradio.com.
This show will be a special tribute to Lowell native Jack Kerouac, and his traveling companion On The Road, Neal Cassady, who had a great personal influence on the members of the Grateful Dead. Kerouac's original manuscript scroll of his most famous novel, On The Road, is on display at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum Gallery adjacent to the concert venue, Boarding House Park. Weir read On The Road in 1964 and became forever changed. "It told me the world was a wide open place. Go get it," said Weir in a November 2006 interview with the Lowell Sun.
