Greetings Dead Freaks!For episode 73, I am joined by Justin Bruce, music fan and weatherman for Las Vegas' KTNV. Justin recently decided to explore the Brent Mydland years of Grateful Dead so I asked him to come on and help me celebrate the late keyboardist as we approach the 30th anniversary of his final shows and passing. We discuss Brent's tenure, his songwriting, and musical contributions. Afterwards, I have assembled a hefty mix that incorporates his songs and some excellent jamming. I hope you dig it.You can find Justin's musical musing on Twitter @just1n_music. The man did more homework for this episode than almost anyone (so far) so please show him some appreciation. I am tempted to apologize for the length of the mix in this episode but, honestly, it could and possibly should have been longer.

Greetings Dead Freaks!It's midsummer and I've got a new episode to cool you down. Guitarist Jim Nunally chats with me about coming up as a flatpicker in the Bay Area, making the jump to music full time, playing music with David Grisman, the latest album from the Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally band, and so much more. There's also a mix of Grateful Dead tunes to wrap the whole thing up so stick around for the whole thing as you won't want to miss a bit.You can find the last album, Western Sun, from the Nell and Jim Band on their website, NellandJim.com. It's a delightful fusion of the traditional sounds of bluegrass, folk, country, and swing with an infusion of smart songwriting. Their voices blend beautifully and the band has chops to spare. After the interview, I spin a terrific cut from the album.I hope you enjoy this episode. I put some thought into the mix and it starts weird, but pulls up into some fairly coherent space. Allow me to remind you that the Brokedown Podcast is part of the Osiris Media.

Greetings Dead Freaks! We've got a bunch of little things and then a big mix of good old Grateful Dead ahead of us. We're taking a look back at the Berkeley Community Theater run centered on Halloween 1984. In addition to being the debut of the Official Taper's Section, it's also a fairly strong run of six shows with some really great music. We dip in and sample a bit of everything.Also in this episode, I tell you about an interesting new book from Julie Dreyer Brigden, aka Girl. Brigden was married to David Freiberg in the 60s and was around the Quicksilver and Grateful Dead scenes and so much more throughout the 60s & 70s. Her new book, Girl: An Untethered Life is available now from local booksellers (ask up front!) as well as via Amazon. Hers is a unique perspective on the time and I recommend the book.I'm also excited to share with you a track from a new Matt Valentine album the record is called "Preserves" and the tune is "Be Kind". Have a listen and then head on over to Bandcamp to cop the whole thing.At the top of the show is the trailer for an exciting new podcast from Osiris Media called "After Midnight: Phish's Big Cypress Music Festival."
