Eric Johnson- Cliffs of Dover- Dallas 6-14-86

For nearly twenty-five years my Dallas/Ft.Worth radio station Q102 sponsored the largest radio blood drive in the nation. We could not be more proud of our loyal listeners, who in six days of withering Texas summer heat would donate up to 14,000 pints of live-saving blood each year. To thank them, each blood donor would receive a pair of tickets to a free concert sponsored by the radio station, and on June 14, 1986 Austin-based guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson played live to a pumped up North Texas crowd of blood donors. He opened his set with this then-unreleased song, “Cliffs of Dover”, which four years later would propel Johnson’s million seller Ah Via Musicom . Mixed live to two-track by Doug Hall at the Dallas Convention Center Arena. –Redbeard
