035 - Winter Tour '79 pt. 1

It's 2019 and my Grateful Dead calendar puts us exactly 40 years out from the final tour with Keith and Donna. In this episode we take the first half of that tour into consideration and spin some jams hot enough to defrost your microbus. So stand up or sit down and enjoy.

We've got a bunch of stuff lined up for this upcoming year so please tell your friends, to get on the bus and subscribe so they don't miss a thing!

Please consider heading over there to cop a little something. In addition to ladies and men’s shirts, we've got stickers, and things that hold coffee (or tea!) Thanks.

034 - A Day Between

The year is rapidly closing but here's one more episode before 2019 hits. This one is a look at some of the shows played on 12/27 over the years. We've got Grateful Dead tunes from several eras of the band and some nice jams along with. So ice the bubbly, spike the last of the egg nog and get ready to boogie.

I will note, there's one song in the mix that I failed to back-announce. It was sort of a last-minute addition– a bonus track, if you will. Don't let that mix up get you down. I hope you enjoy all of this stuff and look froward to more great stuff to come in the new year.

As always, please remember that we have shirts on our redbubble page. Please consider heading over there to cop a little something with our sweet new logo. In addition to ladies and men’s shirts, we've got stickers, and things that hold coffee (or tea!)

033 - Generational Band

It's December and temperatures may be falling but we've still got hot jams for you. Inspired by a Bob Weir quote in this recent Rolling Stone interview, this episode digs into where Grateful Dead music goes in the next fifty years. We'll check into Dead & Company, Phil & Friends, Keller Williams, Golden Gate Wingmen, and Joe Russo's Almost Dead. Then, we'll spin some terrific Grateful Dead.

This go-round, I completely forgot to mention the merch (again.) We still have shirts that are on our redbubble page. Please consider heading over there to cop a little something with our sweet new logo. In addition to ladies and men’s shirts, we've got stickers, and things that hold coffee (or tea!)

032 - Dire Wolves

It's late November and the year is almost gone. In this episode we chat with Jeffrey Alexander of Dire Wolves. They've got a new album out called Paradisiacal Mind which you can grab from Bandcamp or on vinyl from Feeding Tube Records in the US or Cardinal Fuzz in the UK/EU. It's a great trip and worth your time.

We dig into the origins of the band and their unique sound before spinning a track from the new album. Then we tap into Jeffrey's past as a deadhead and taper. Naturally we get to talking about shows he saw and that leads us to spin some terrific Grateful Dead.

As mentioned on the show (for a change), you can still grab t-shirts, mugs (travel & otherwise), and stickers over on the Redbubble site.

031 - JGB Fall '93 with Lenny Stubbe

In this episode, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the final Jerry Garcia Band East Coast Tour. In Fall of '93, the JGB played a mess of dates back East (as they say) and a whole lot of fun was had. Our guest, Lenny Stubbe was there in Buffalo (11/5/93) and reports his recollections and overall impressions of the tour. Your host attended a couple of these as well.

Naturally, talking about music leads to listening to music and some choice selections from the tour are included for your pleasure.

029 - MSG '90

Hey there, Dead Freaks! It's October and although I'm ready for cooler weather, I'm still into talking about September. Specifically, September 1990. We're looking back to that first run of shows at Madison Square Garden with Vince and Bruce joining the Grateful Dead on the keys. While this era is often maligned, there's great stuff to be heard. In fact, this run has spawned a Dick's Picks (#9) and a Road Trips release! We're combing through what's to bring you some great playing from the dawning of a new era.

I completely failed to mention the merch in this episode (AGAIN) so I'll just add here, you can still grab t-shirts, mugs (travel & otherwise), and stickers over on the Redbubble site.
