DSOTM # 88 (Flash Back) - 6/10/73

This is a Flash Back to an episode a few years ago, that somehow disappeared from the server (?).   Which is a shame!   The Dead show is one for the ages (6/10/73 RFK With the Allman Brothers sitting in for Set 3), and is a sure fire pleaser for any of our listeners...

...But one thing I am most excited about is the re-emergence of the interview myself and "Bob" conducted that morning several years ago with the one and only Sam Cutler.   Sam was the Tour manager for the Dead from 1970-1974, and of course has some tales to tell.   If you have seen "LONG STRANGE TRIP", than you know what role of importance SAm played... during an era of expansive growth in the bands sound and following.

It is a 3 set show, full of amazing vistas and majestic visions... the aforementioned interview happens during the two intermissions as well as at the end of the show.  Good clean fun.

Enjoy the ride!

DSOTM # 14 (Flashback) - 10/9/89

This episode of the Flashback, while a little late, is well worth the wait!  Last month "The Force Awakened", and this show is an appropriate choice, because the Dead appeared to have awakened their own brand of the Force!  At half time I convene a "Big Show Round Table" to discuss the immensity that is this show... and we give you some Jerry on banjo too!  Enjoy this one, its a fun listen...

DSOTM # 33 (Flash Back) - 8/16/69

This months podcast highlights the band at one of the best opportunities to that point that they could have turned on a whole bunch of folks all at once...  and they kind of blew it.  While not a horrible show, its rather uneven.  Why release it?  For the historical value alone of the Dead braving all kinds of elements and a fantastic Dark Star.  For the "Filler", I make up for one bands uneven effort with another bands set of blazing intensity.  I think it all will turn out OK for you guys!  Enjoy the Ride to Woodstock ya'll.
