Won’t You Try/Saturday Afternoon



Welcome to very early Friday: 

Thanks for flying with your host Craig Fenton.  How are things? 

Two really strong ones from the Airmachine as we go back to 1989 for the reunion and the old Airplane favorites are part of the journey.  It’s a great summer night August of 89 and after 17 years the J.A. will take flight for a handful of US shows which started in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and ended in Washington, D.C. 

The memories linger forever! Joined by Peter Kaukonen, Tim Gorman, Randy Jackson, and Kenny Aronoff the plane has plenty of fuel and is flying nicely.  Enjoy! 

I’ll look forward to hearing you later on. 

Have a fantastic day! 

All the best,




Wooden Ships: with help from Peter Kaukonen, Randy Jackson, Tim Gorman, and Kenny Aronoff.   

Hello and welcome to Thursday night: 

How are you feeling this evening?  Have a cool one from the vault as we head to 1989 to fly over a boat that may not be the most secure but is never going away.

 Please remember to look at the right side of the page and enjoy the rare Jack Casady photo from 1966.  Herb Greene took a gem of a shot and it has not seen the light of day until today! Please check the myriad of updates the past month.  From rare photos to music from the Rock Tent Vaults, it is all there for you fine passengers. I have to head back inside the tent to pay my rent but I’ll look for you later on. 

Have a fantastic Friday,

How are things going this evening?  I have been battling (Not

well) a scratchy throat but the Aircast #33 1/3 must go on!  Please

forgive the voice being strained.  It doesn’t help when producer

Plastic Fantastic Pete reminds me of this 1,000 times.  He also

had to procure the worst throat lozenges ever developed in the

Airplane Universe. 

Welcome to the Rock Tent and

Aircast #33 1/3.  This is tremendous

if you have not previously been

exposed to Mr. Jerry Garcia

helping out, there is also:  


Wally Heider’s Studio, San Francisco, California  

Instrumental Blues Jam 1972 Wally Heider’s Studio Trial By Fire #3 (Instrumental) 1972  

Wally Heider’s Studio W/JERRY GARCIA  

Eat Starch Mom (Instrumental) 1972  Wally Heider’s Studio  

The Jam is worth a few listens!  Hope you enjoy the journey back in time and our flight. I am looking through some more photos for you fineflyers from the massive Herb Greene collection. 

Always be well,


P.S.:  Obviously no mention of the Yankee game!!!   


Grace Slick and Jerry Slick circa 66 by Herb GreeneHi there Airplaners: 

Where does the time go.  How are you?  It’s 4:51AM Eastern Airplane time and it seems the day was first getting started.  When you do something you love it is great to not have to look at a watch every few seconds and see the clock hasn’t moved that much. 

I wanted to give another cool Herb Greene photo and a quick comment about human nature.  The photo is Grace Slick and husband at the time Jerry Slick both of the Great Society circa 66.  Can you believe over 40 years ago that was taken? I’ll have a cool bonus Aircast Thursday afternoon sometime.   

Before I forget I have to share with you an Airmail and a comment.  This is my reply to a  very perceptive passenger.  Judy in Clearwater Florida writes Craig I get the feeling there is a very specific reason why you sign off the Aircasts with byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for now.  Can you share it with us or is it personal? Thanks for the Airmail Judy and while it is personal, I’d love to share it with you.  When my parents were alive they got the biggest kick out of a political program called the McLaughlin Group.  It would be five minutes of talk and then all heck broke loose.  He always signed off bye bye.  It is a take off on that as a remembrance for mom and dad.  

Quick comment and then the Airplane needs to refuel overnight.  I am amazed daily how people seem to fit into two categories nice or mean.  No middle ground anymore.  For example I had the pleasure of speaking to one of Signe Anderson’s good friends Peter about 12 hours ago.  He is in involved with video shoots and editing.  What a professional and articulate gentleman.  Then the other side.  I had posted a question on a board on a person replied that I only posted to spam the forum.  If they felt that way it takes two seconds to type me an Airmail and ask me about their concerns.  The truth is while I promote “Take Me To A Circus Tent” every waking moment I can, I would not use a question and answer forum that may have 100 people tops look at it.  The person should have known that if it were my intention or anyone to plug their website or product, they aren’t going to waste time on any site that wouldn’t have 1000’s of views.  There has to be some reason people get so upset over ridiculous events.   I should get some sleep so that the Thursday journey to the Rock Tent can provide cool music for you fine folks. 

Have a terrific day and it really is easier to be nice than to be rude. 

All the best, 

Craig “The Airplane Man” Fenton
