Dead Show/podcast for 12/26/08

I do hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! The band often played very good runs up to the famous New Year's Eve shows - often these shows would be better than the NYE show itself. This week I decided to bring you one of these 'NYE' run shows, this one from 1990. Bruce Hornsby is with the band and does a wonderful Valley Road to end this first set. I'll bring you the second set next week - I hope you enjoy it..

Grateful Dead Coliseum Arena Oakland, CA 12/30/90 - Sunday
One Bertha ; Feel Like A Stranger ; Candyman ; Me And My Uncle > Maggie's Farm ; High Time ; Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again ; Tennessee Jed ; Valley Road

Dead Show/podcast for 12/12/08

I can't believe how fast the year is flying by! Almost over, and this week I'm bringing you a show requested by one of my listeners - this one sounds great this holiday season - its Jerry Garcia, John Kahn, Bill Kruetzman and Merl Saunders at Pacific High Studios on February 2, 1972.
This is probably an FM source and so its a little compressed - but the music makes up for it.. check out the fine instrumental version of 'Imagine'..
Hope you enjoy it, and that you can find the time for all the things that you love this Holiday season..
