001 - Spring Tour

It's springtime (or very nearly.) 

Here at Brokedown Podcasting Central, Spring came early this year. Whether we've got snow on the ground, flowers in the trees, or both on the same day; this time of year makes me itch to get out on the road for tour. Yes, it's been a long time since Grateful Dead played a Spring tour but, every time I see a 3x5 card, it seems like yesterday.

For our first episode, we begin with a sampler from the Spring. Each selection comes from a show within the first ten years of the band with one basic requirement… a Springtime date. We hope you enjoy this little trip.

Please follow us on Twitter: @BrokedownPod, or on Facebook and let us know your thoughts. You can also e-mail us at BrokedownPodATgmailDotcom.

Thanks for listening!

  1. great great selection from the spectrum in '73. i've listened to the dead for nearly 25 years but my live show selections have always been somewhat aimless (what SBDs are well-rated on http://archive.org, mostly) so i'm looking forward to having some more curated selections. keep up the good work!

  2. That Spectrum bit is smoking!
