Dead Show/podcast for 1/23/09


Hello Friends!!
Despite my general state of confusion and uncertainty following my move I decided to share some Grateful Dead music in which I found some comfort this last week..
Not surprisingly, its from 1973 - its not a complete show, but nevertheless I so enjoy the way the band listened to each other and interacted that year that I decided to bring it to you this week.. I think you'll really enjoy the China Doll, Truckin'->Nobody's Fault->Eyes segment in particular...

Grateful Dead Pittsburgh Civic Arena Pittsburgh, PA 9/24/73 - Monday

Partial 1st Set: Loose Lucy [6:47] ; Looks Like Rain [7:21] ; Row Jimmy ; Big River [4:35]
Partial 2nd Set: Merry-Go-Round Broke Down ->Greatest Story Ever Told [5:09] ; China Doll [5:41] ; Truckin' [9:02] > Nobody's Fault But Mine* [3:20] > Jam [0:58] > Eyes Of The World [13:34]+
+ = with Martin Fierro and Joe Ellis on horns
* = first Nobody's Fault since 7/17/66 [799 shows]

You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:

Not sure what I would do without it either professor. The music every Friday keeps me going. Keep on truckin' wherever you need to go.

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in" ......good to see your back Professor. Made me think of that Godfather quote. Sometimes I think I listen to the Dead to much and ill try to take a break but it doesn't last long. What would we do without them

Great to hear a hometown show! I'm always just a little envious, having been born too late. It does give me the advantage of being able to use my imagination, though! Thanks!

John:
Where in Michigan did you move to? Are we going to get you on the air waves?

Lansing -
I'm not sure as to whether I'll be on the air any time soon - KOPN may want to broadcast some recordings we will see..
thanks!

Great Show! Awesome to hear a show from my home town! I still go to the civic arena often to see the Penguins play hockey. I can only imagine how awesome a dead show would be there. The building's only got a year or so left. They've already broken ground on the new stadium "Consol Energy Arena".
