Dead Show/podcast for 12/28/12

As 2012 draws to an end, I was reflecting on what shows were most requested by my listeners, and what is readily apparent is that I get a whole lot of requests for more Jerry Garcia Band.. by a fortuitous coincidence, this tape happened to make an appearance this week. This had never before been in circulation, and that, combined with the wonderful year (for JGB) and setlist ensured that I'd choose it for this week's Deadpod.. 
I loved this lineup of the JGB, and this period in their performance history. While this is a mono recording, its such a happy occasion to have a new JGB release see the light of day that I decided it would be just right for this Deadpod... I hope you agree...

Professor - Thanks for making 2012 more fun and enjoyable by sharing such awesome music. I know every Friday morning I bounce out of bed with a little more spring in my step as I go to see what you have teed up @ the Deadpod. Here's to a GREAT 2013!
