Playlist Description

This coming Tuesday marks the 20th anniversary of Bill Graham's death (10/25/1991). If you enjoy this website, you know how appreciative we are of everything 'Wolfgang' Grajonca has done, but he'll be in our thoughts even more than usual over the next week. As part of our celebrations of his memory, we've compiled this playlist with some of our favorite examples of Bill's inimitably humorous and respectful style of introducing bands on stage. Listen to Bill Graham in action, then stick around for the jams by the Allman Brothers, Miles Davis, the Grateful Dead, Traffic, Bruce Springsteen and more - it's just a small sampling of the legends he presented in concert over the years.
