Dead Show/podcast for 4/22/11

Frankly I equivocated a bit on this week's show.. the show itself was a wonderful request from one of our listener's for a show from a period in the band's history that was frankly uneven, at the end of the Keith and Donna era.. Not only would I call the period itself uneven, but this show as well, with the first set clearly not matching the luminescence of the second set. Be that as it may be, I decided to include the first set this week, partly due to the fact that I am a GD 'completest' as it were, and because its still some damm nice music. While it may be true that the band really revs it up in set 2, I think its worth hearing the entire show, and for support of that argument I point to the Jack Straw and Deal that we can enjoy in this week's first set.. I hope you enjoy, and thanks for listening!

Professor - Often overlooked because of the next night, 12/30/78 is an excellent show. I was at both 12/30/78 & 12/31/78.The UCLA show has some of the everybody's all times favorite Dead songs not included in the next night's performance.The Dead played exceptionally well at this warm up for New Years Gig. If you haven't played it please do so. In fact, all of the 1970's UCLA Pauley Pavilion GD shows should be part of your listener's library.
Thanks, Cosmic Charlie

I actually enjoyed this set. Given your disclaimer, I wasn't expecting this to be the case. Of course, it's always best to under-promise and over-deliver!
