Great sound. The bass sounds perfect, at least to my ears. Did you decode this into WAV/AIFF, or is it AAC? Many Thanks.

Dear Professor,

I am a huge fan of your show - THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love all your selections by the way. But, I would really like to share with you the following suggestion - that you take a look/listen to the Dead's final electric set from the Capitol Theater in Port Chester New York from June 24, 1970.

This was a massive night for the Dead and all Dead Heads. I don't want to get into best-of arguments and the like as I just don't go there very often. For example, I love all the Dark Stars I have ever heard. But this night was the best night of Dead I had heard up to that date and no other Dead show ever came close.

In particular this let set contains what I call a Dark Star Club sandwich! Three Dark Stars sandwiching an Attics and a Sugar Magnolia (second time SM was ever played).

Whether you choose to podcast this awesome, primal show, please listen to it if you have not already. Again - I know you occasionally take listerner suggestions. So here is mine - late show 6-24-70:

This was a wonderful show, through and through. Bob's rhythm work was featured perfectly in the mix, and he played well this night. Smokestack Lightnin' was a very nice treat, as was Wake Up, Little Susie.
