In this episode we return to finish our look at the final shows of Keith and Donna. Winter '79 featured some good music but spotty coverage in the form of soundboard tapes. Fortunately, some of the audience recordings hold up and we even feature one such tape in the show. We've got some first set rockers and second set jammers on the decks.
Before we get down with that, we take a few minutes to celebrate the life and voice of Jerry Garcia Band vocalist, Gloria Jones, who passed last week. Joining Jerry's side band in Fall of 1984, she sang with him and for us until Jerry passed. She then carried on with Melvin and Jackie in JGB. Gloria will be missed and fondly remembered forever.
We've added some items to the redbubble shop. Additional t-shirts, hoodies, and whatnot can be found there and the prices have been reduced. Why lower prices? Because it's a final blow-out before I close out that shop and move on to the next phase of BrokedownPod merch. What's next, you ask? Who can say? Better cop a fresh logo shirt now before they're gone!
