DSOTM # 131 - 6/26/94

This months podcast takes us all the way towards the end... the Summer 1994 Tour, and this show stands tall proclaiming: "The band still has IT!"  Fans of any era should find this musical experience engaging.  The whole tour as thrown off by a month due to the World Cup soccer tournament, so the dead landed in Vegas in late June.  Bob and myself were at this show, and it served as both of our "last great show"... and what a show it is.  It was crazy hot, every song went that extra mile, and a fine musical journey was crafted out under the desert sky once again.  Enjoy the show, we sure did.

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!
