Fall 1998 saw the most extensive tour yet in the history of the Professors. On October 3, the Professors performed as a quartet (Barrows, Radford, Romanenko, and Kubey) at an outdoor halloween party in Jackson Mills, New Jersey, hosted by Kevin Patten, a good friend of Radford's brother-in-law, Gerard Stafford-Smith. Patten and Stafford-Smith are members of the legendary band THE GRATEFUL SHEDHEADS, who played a set of Grateful Dead, Radiohead, and Alanis Morissette; well, at least until the rain started coming down.
