Forgotten Vancouver Stories at NV13 – Annotations, Remarks, etc / artifact roundup

Vancouver Stories from the Museum on @TheRushTV show

After a recent appearance discussing HootSuite culture, i sat down with Fiona Forbes and guest host Peter Verge to share a few of my favourite – somewhat-forgotten – Vancouver-centric stories. This time, the set was on-location at the Museum of Vancouver.

I shared anecdotes about rock and roll photographer Bev Davies, the Group of 7 bohemian painter Frederick Varley, and the elusive Grateful Dead shows in 1966 + name check for Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company.

The show also broadcasts a livestream which includes all the in between banter and offside comments and anecdotes from the Twitter stream.

Squaw Valley Daydream – Jerry Garcia and David Grisman Flashback

Squaw Valley Daydream


Jerry Garcia and David Grisman headlined a festival way up in the Gold Coast Concert bowl – sorta built out of a ski bowl area of Squaw Peak or something…

All the show details are curated for your inspection.

Other acts included:

  • Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
  • Booker T. & the M.G.’s
  • Neville Brothers

A favourite memory is Bela Fleck joining Jerry and Dave for a Ripple encore while the sun set in the mountains – a performance which changes lives.

Squaw Valley Daydream

These photos are the artifacts from Mr. W Knapp of Provo who has keep them safe for posterity. The folks therein are from the Pacific and Inter-mountain regions of the US and Canada and often rambled in various buses and vans to concerts – usually featuring some The Grateful Dead, or some permeation thereof.

Yeah, these were good times. If you see yourself, say hallo.

Messy podcast feeds / solid content reminds me: “The bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean (sound of the thunder and the rain pouring down… )”
