Eric Renner Brown

Greetings, Dead Freaks! We're back with a fresh episode, this time a talk with writer, Eric Renner Brown. Eric is a writer and editor for Pollstar and, more importantly, a Deadhead. We talked about how he, a younger fan, got into the band, seeing the post-Dead offshoots with his Deadhead Dad and, of course his favorite tapes. After all of that, I've got some tasty selections of live Grateful Dead for you to enjoy so make yourself at home and enjoy the ride!

Also in this episode, I get into some of the great new music that's been catching my ears lately. Previous guests Elkhorn, new solo music from Circles Around The Sun's Dan Horne, the excellent folk of Joan Shelley, and a new live release from Hiss golden Messenger. All of that and so much more can be found in my bandcamp collection at https://bandcamp.com/rowjimmy.

  1. Re: about 52 min of the podcast, I just wanted to say that I've listened through most of your shows since I discovered your podcast, and I look forward to your show and notice if one hasn't come out lately. Your show has introduced me to a lot of really great AUD's that I would never have gone through myself. I especially appreciated your episodes about September 72, May 73, and MSG 90.

    There aren't any other deadheads that I know of in my area and things like this really help me to keep the connection and I think you're doing good work and hope you continue.
