Dead Show/podcast for 8/14/15

This week's Deadpod is the result of a request from one of my long time listeners' who reported that his wife had one of those annoying incidents where some lout dumped a beer on her during this, her very first Grateful Dead show and nevertheless remained tolerant enough to accompany him to yet another Dead show 15 years later where the same thing happened to the poor lady!
Despite all that this is a great show, and I'm happy to bring it to you this week, this comes from Falls Church NY from May 8th, 1980. It opens with a rockin' Alabama Getaway, and shows that the boys are ready to rock on this night! Other highlights for me include a fine 'High Time' and a great version of 'Lazy Lightnin'->Supplication'..
I'll be playing the second set of this show next week..

Grateful Dead spouses need a blog of their own! They rule and are extremely tolerant of our obsessions.

I'm enjoying your blog and your show selection, just a quick correction, this show is from Glen Falls, NY not Falls Church, NY. I used to live in that area so I'm familiar with the Civic Center and it's located right in Glens Falls.
