Dead Show podcast for 12/31/10

It's not every year that NYE falls on a Friday, so I decided I should take advantage of the occasion to play a NYE show. The Dead were of course famous for their NYE concerts and the radio broadcasts of same that often provided many of us with a joyful experience of the boys we perhaps didn't get to see as often as we would like. I recall several New Years evenings at the radio station listening to the simulcast.. ahhhhh .. I can't claim that I heard this one, but as it marks the transition from one great GD year to another, I decided it would definitely be worth playing.. I really love the energy coming out of the New Year countdown into Around and Around.. the Jack Straw is awesome and I think in general the band is in fine form...

OK, do not get me wrong here, I love the Deadpod, and I am indeed Grateful for it.
Thank You Professor!
And, I have only been listening for a couple months, so this criticism may be off the Mark, but, are the broadcasts a bit heavy on early 70's shows - especially '72? And, anything newer seems to be early 80's (solid-state Dead).

All these shows are good shows - no doubt about it, but some mid-late 70's would be great too! For example: there are some 76-era shows with let it grow - wheel - the other one, and all sorts of other eclectic stuff strung together in the 2nd set, and often a lazy lightning / supplication in the first set. Or, something from the back-half of the 80's would be a great addition too.
