Greetings Dead Freaks!

This episode features a chat with three fans who have a unique responsibility. Toni Fishman and Jason Scheuner own Dick Latvala's archive and, with the help of Scott Medeiros, they are cataloging, and transferring the rich wealth of recordings therein. We had an interesting and wide ranging conversation about what they refer to as "Dick's Stash" as well as their own backgrounds as fans, gearheads, tapers, and collectors. After that, we delve into a mix choice of audience Grateful Dead recordings that should keep you moving throughout.
