Dead Show/podcast for 03/30/07

Here's a really high-energy east coast show from the end of 1979.. This week we'll listen to the entire first set plus the fabulous disco-version of the second set opener, Dancin' In The Streets and a completely out there Franklin's Tower. This show is a great example of the early Brent influence on the band and I'm sure you'll enjoy it..

(note: I inadvertently mis-ordered the songs in the first version of this that I uploaded today - my appologies, they are now correct)...

Help me design a deadpod bumper sticker!

Friends, over time I've had different people ask if I had a bumpersticker or t-shirt to promote the deadpod... I think it might be time to try and make one! but I need your help.. I'm asking you to contribute your ideas/drawings/designs for a deadpod bumpersticker/logo to be used to promote the show..

Please email me your ideas/drawings/suggestions.. I'll be happy to send a copy of the new GD Cow Palace CD to whoever suggests the winning design..

In the "open source" spirit of the music and the deadpod, your submissions will not be copywritten, nor will I do so (you might check out the creative commons for an example of a less restrictive license that allows me to use your work on our bumperstickers)..

I know there are some very creative folks who listen to the show, and I hope that some of you might be moved to help me create a wonderful new bumpersticker or other promotional materials for the show..

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks SO much for your support!

Dead Show/podcast for 03/16/07

I had a different show in mind until I discovered that this show had become available - this is one of the greatest shows of one of the greatest years in the history of the Grateful Dead.. While I often try to bring you "lesser-known" moments in GD history, this show merits an extended listening....
