And here we are at Podcast # 150!!!   I want to thank everyone who listens to and supports this goofy endeavor of providing a monthly musical journey with the Grateful Dead and Friends!   My Co-host "Bob" & Ronnie the Engineer provide me with a bunch of help in studio and it allows us to bring you a high quality product.

This months podcast is as high quality as it gets:  A tremendous outing by the band along with stellar recording quality.  This journey comes to us from the famed Europe 72 Tour, and provides us with the longest Dark Star known to man.  For our half-time show, "Bob" brings us a swell recording from Jackson Browne and David Lindley from 1975... good stuff all around.   We present to you DSOTM # 150, we hope you enjoy it as much as we are!

DSOTM#147 - 6/12/80

This months podcast takes us to the Summer of '80, when the Dead were able to play to such volcanic proportions they literally blew the top off of a local mountain.   Kind of.   For half time we get treated to some great out takes of Garcia and his PERRO friends doing their thing.  An enjoyable ride from an era we don't touch on too much here at DSOTM.

NOTE:   The first minute or so of this show is pretty rough, but it gets better!

DSOTM # 56 (Flashback) - 6/4/78

This month marks the 4 Year Anniversary of "Bob" becoming our full time co-host.  Having met "Bob" in line for tickets in 1993, he's been my buddy for years and always someone I turned to for my goofy curious nature about eras past... it seemed obvious to have him sit in with me on the podcast.  So, for this Flashback, we journey back to June of 2011, the first time that "Bob" came over and was my guest.   The show and the filler are pretty good too!
