Bob Weir to Discuss HeadCount's Midterms Matter Tour on Air America 2006-06-01
At 10:30 PST/1:30 EST today, Bob Weir will discuss the importance of voting and the upcoming HeadCount "Midterms Matter Tour" on Air America 11:50 AM Los Angeles. As previously reported, HeadCount will register voters at 30 major concerts and festivals across the country, including Bonnaroo, Wakarusa and several dates on Phil Lesh├»¿½s tour with Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon. Weir is a member of the organization's board of directors, and has been outspoken on the issue of voter participation for several years. His statement in 2003 that "If every Deadhead in Florida had voted the world would be a very different place" served as a wakeup call among his fans. Then in the summer of 2004 he broke with tradition and spoke from the stage during every Dead show, imploring fans to vote and directing them to HeadCount voter registration tables. The radio interview will focus on the importance of midterm elections and HeadCount' grassroots organizing activity. To listen please click here.
