Home Shopping, The Grateful Dead Way

The Grateful Dead will do the home shopping thing Friday night on QVC, where Dead roadie Steve Parrish and tape archivist Dick Latvala will host the show, "First Friday, Extreme Shopping."

Latvala, who compiles the "Dick's Picks" series of Grateful Dead concert albums, will preview "Dick's Picks Volume 11" on the show, and Parrish will share whatever he can remember, of the long, strange trip he took with the band.

The Dead's Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart launch their Furthur festival tour June 25 in Atlanta.
