I'm going to shuffle the deck a little bit and bring you a real treat, a show from the fall of 1976. This comes to us from September 30, 1976 at Mershon Auditorium at The Ohio State University. This special request from a friend of the Deadpod features a fantastic first set. The opening 'Music Never Stopped' is quite unique - and features some wonderful playing by Garcia in the cresendo leading into a sweet 'Sugaree'.  'Looks Like Rain' has a nice interplay between Bob and Donna, and 'El Paso' has a nice galloping tempo thanks to Phil. The real fireworks come with the fabulous 'Crazy Fingers' that follows.. to me the highlight of the set, although some would argue that the set closing 'Scarlet Begonias' deserves those accolades.. I'll let you decide ;)      Grateful Dead Mershon Auditorium - Ohio State University Columbus, OH 9/30/76 - Thursday One     The Music Never Stopped [5:56] Sugaree [9:44]   New Minglewood Blues [4:30]   Ramble On Rose [7:19] Looks Like Rain [6:02]   Peggy-O [8:25]   El Paso [4:10] Crazy Fingers [15:02] > It's All Over Now [5:14]   Scarlet Begonias [10:14]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod051421.mp3  
This week's Deadpod brings us the second set of the band's fine performance at Cal Expo on May 4, 1991. They continue what has been a solid show, opening with the perhaps odd choice of 'Victim or the Crime'. That darkness has to give however as they then move onto a wonderful 'Crazy Fingers' and 'Playin In the Band'. It sounds for a bit at the end of the latter that they will move into Drums, but Jerry and Phil instead turn the sound around to a nice version of  'Uncle John's Band'.  Post-drums features a strong 'Miracle' into a fine version of 'Standing on the Moon'. I find this to be a great version of this powerful tune, as Garcia and company show how they've infused this song with the power and passion that makes it one of the great later day ballads in their repertoire.  Being Saturday, they then close the set with 'One More Saturday Night' and return with a 'Touch' encore.  I think its a fine set and hope you enjoy it as well.  Grateful Dead Cal Expo Amphitheatre Sacramento, CA  5/4/91 - Saturday Two     Victim Or The Crime ; Crazy Fingers ; Playing In The Band ; Uncle John's Band > Drums > Space > I Need A Miracle > Standing On The Moon ; One More Saturday Night Encore     Touch Of Grey  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod050721.mp3    'oh oh what I want to know, where does the time go?"   thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod   
This week on the Deadpod we feature a Kentucky Derby Day performance by the band back in 1991. This was at Cal Expo, in Sacramento California on May 4, 1991.  The band starts out hard and tight with a roaring 'Hell In a Bucket'. They are without Hornsby here, and in some ways sound tighter and more together (although I'm well aware that opinions differ on how Vince sounds here). The 'Sugaree' that follows is very good, with Garcia really ramping it up in the solo.  I think that the version of 'The Race Is On' here is a real winner. 'Row Jimmy' is always fun to hear and they also feature 'New Speedway Boogie' which they broke out during the Spring tour that year.   Grateful Dead Cal Expo Amphitheater Sacramento, CA  5/4/91 - Saturday One     Hell In A Bucket ; Sugaree ; New Minglewood Blues ; Loser ; The Race Is On ; Row Jimmy ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; New Speedway Boogie ; The Music Never Stopped  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod043021.mp3  Hoping you have a fine Derby weekend, and a fine May to follow!  thanks for your support  
This week the Deadpod goes back to the Spring of 1969 for a set the Dead played in Chicago at a place either called 'The Electric Theater' or the 'Kinetic Playground' depending on where you look :)  While this is a short set, the story goes that the Velvet Underground was on the same bill, and played before the Dead. Apparently they played a very long set and the Dead were left with only enough time for a short set. The story goes that the Dead returned the favor the next night...  Their set opens with a rather sloppy 'Hard To Handle' - apparently Jerry was experimenting with using the pedal steel on this one, and it doesn't come off so well. 'Doin' That Rag' follows and has a nice jam in it, but they really get going with the 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl' that follows  - some classic Pigpen here and throughout. An early 'Morning Dew' follows, then, unfortunately, Bobby's Yellow Dog story.  The set closes with two excellent pieces, 'Sitting on Top of the World' and and a great 'Lovelight'.    Grateful Dead Electric Theater Chicago, IL 4/25/69 - Friday One - Hard to Handle [4:25] % Doin' That Rag [7:32] % Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [11:28] % Morning Dew [7:32] % Yellow dog story [1:58] % Sitting on Top of the World [3:46] % Turn On Your Love Light [23:30]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod042321.mp3   Have a great week! and thanks for your support!         
We have a very fine second set this week from the Grateful Dead's performance at the Hartford Civic Center on April 18, 1982. While the show is known for the famous 'Earthquake Space' that Phil creates following drums, the interplay throughout is wonderful from all the members of the band and this fine recording captures that fun and joy completely. I would draw your attention in particular to the wonderful 'Samson and Delilah' here. Bob and Jerry really spice this one up wonderfully. It's a fine set list in its entirety including a nice 'Playin' In the Band' and 'Eyes of the World', the later a bit faster than its 70s versions but still having the capacity to make our spirts soar.  The post-drums setlist is no snoozer either, with 'The Other One' leading into a fine 'Black Peter'. 'Sugar Mag' leads into a nice 'Playin' reprise, and they end with a spirited 'Sugar Magnolia'. After all this I think they can be excused for the 'Don't Ease' encore ;)      Grateful Dead Hartford Civic Center Hartford, CT 4/18/82 - Sunday   Two     Cold Rain And Snow > Samson And Delilah ; Ship Of Fools ; Playing In The Band > Eyes Of The World > Drums > Space (1) > The Other One > Black Peter > Sugar Magnolia > Playing In The Band > Sunshine Daydream Encore     Don't Ease Me In Comments     (1) Earthquake Space  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  https://bit.ly/3dkRkB9 I hope this finds everyone doing well and feeling the warmth of Spring.  thank you for your kind support!

This week we have the first set of a legendary show from April 18, 1982 in Hartford CT. Those of you familiar with either the history of the Grateful Dead or of San Francisco know that April 18, 1906 was the date of the great San Francisco Earthquake, and this show is famous for its legendary 'Earthquake Space'. Since I prefer presenting complete shows, and since this first set is quite good on its own merits, we'll hear it this week, and the second set, complete with the 'earthquake space' next. This one starts with a rocking 'Bertha' into 'Promised Land'. A pretty 'Friend of the Devil' leads into a rather mellow 'CC Rider'. 'Ramble on Rose' is notable for how great Jerry's voice sounds. After the cowboy polka, 'Althea' is a favorite of mine. 'Big Railroad Blues' has Brent really hitting the mark, I think you'll enjoy it, and the 'Let It Grow' is probably the highlight of this set.   Grateful Dead Hartford Civic Center Hartford, CT 4/18/82 - Sunday One Bertha > The Promised Land ; Friend Of The Devil > C C Rider ; Ramble On Rose ; Me And My Uncle > Mexicali Blues ; Althea > Looks Like Rain ; Big Railroad Blues ; Let It Grow You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod040921.mp3
This week we are fortunate enough to hear the second set of the band's fine performance from March 20, 1977 at the Winterland in San Francisco. A Sunday show, this set starts out appropriately enough with a great 'Samson and Delilah'. A beautiful 'Row Jimmy' follows with very soulful Garcia vocals. The heart of this set comes with the St. Stephen>Other One> Stella Blue combo. Following the excellent St. Stephen, Phil drops into 'The Other One' on a dime. This one contains some great jamming, and in particular the ending where Garcia develops a unique and beautiful transition to the wonderful 'Stella Blue'. They rock it out after that but close with a nice double encore, including the fifth time they play 'Terrapin'..   Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 3/20/77 - Sunday Two Samson And Delilah [8:17] ; Row Jimmy [10:00] ; The Promised Land [4:05] ; Saint Stephen [9:49] > The Other One [14:48] > Stella Blue [8:57] ; Around And Around [7:58] Encore U.S. Blues [5:57] ; Terrapin Station [10:47] You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod040221.mp3 My thanks for your kind support.  
Spring has sprung a bit earlier than usual here in the north, and it's a perfect time to break out the sweet, silky sounds of the Grateful Dead from 1977.. Here's a beauty from March 20, 1977 at the Winterland in San Francisco.  As usual its marked by the extremely smooth and intricate ensemble playing that characterize the year. The band is clearly paying attention to and responding to each other. I'd argue that every song in this first set has its moments - there's even a fun little Jerry run in El Paso. Deal builds and builds to a rousing climax. Cassidy shows off a beautiful arrangement highlighting every member's contribution to the whole. Peggy-O is slow and sweet, love Keith's piano here and Jerry has some runs I've not heard before.  It seems unfair not to single out each of these songs for their beauty..this is a remarkably nice recording as well,  but I just want to also point to the stand-alone Scarlet Begonias that ends this first set.   Never miss a Sunday show )      Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 3/20/77 - Sunday     One     New Minglewood Blues [4:46] ; Ramble On Rose [7:35] ; El Paso [4:12] ; Deal [5:32] ; Cassidy [4:29] ; Peggy-O [7:15] ; Beat It On Down The Line [3:41] ; Brown Eyed Women [5:18] ; Estimated Prophet [8:01] ; Scarlet Begonias [12:45]  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod032621.mp3  Thank you for your kind support of the Deadpod!  "Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light Rising up to paradise, I know I'm gonna shine"
This week's Deadpod features an outstanding second set (only) from March 13, 1982 in Reno Nevada.  While I wish there existed a soundboard of the first set to match this exquisite recording I decided there was no reason not to let you enjoy this great set because it didn't exist.  This set starts out with a powerful reading of 'Feel Like a Stranger' into 'Franklin's Tower'. Jerry is all over both of these with some really sparkling runs, and Brent has come into his own by this time as a member of the band and shines throughout. This show took place the night after John Belushi's death, and that might account for the aborted 'He's Gone' that follows 'Estimated', the band instead going into a beautiful 'Eyes of the World'.   Drums and Space are quite good as well, pay particular attention to the jam leading into 'The Other One' where many locate a 'Lucy in the Skies' or 'Dear Prudence' jam..  The mournful 'Black Peter' seems a good fit on this evening before the band closes out with the rockin' 'Around and Around' and 'Good Lovin' The 'Don't Ease' encore is missing from this tape, unfortunately.      Grateful Dead Centennial Coliseum Reno, NV 3/13/82 - Saturday Two     Feel Like A Stranger > Franklin's Tower > Estimated Prophet > Eyes Of The World > Drums > Space > The Other One > Black Peter  > Around And Around > Good Lovin'    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod031921.mp3  "I want to say to my sisters and my brothers Keep the faith When the storm flies and the wind blows Go on at a steady pace"    
A rare but lovely third set is up on this week's Deadpod.. from Winterland in San Francisco, the first show the band played in 1974 on February 22, 1974.  'Hello baby I'm gone goodbye'... as the band opens this set with a beautiful 'Mississippi Half-Step'... love Garcia's silkly guitar on this one.. Bobby revs it up with a smokin' 'Promised Land', nice work by Keith on the piano here. They switch gears completely with a slow, soulful 'Brokedown Palace', but follow up with a great 'Jack Straw'.  The heart of this set follows however with a beautiful 'Eyes', then 'China Doll' and 'Wharf Rat'.. 'Sugar Mag' brings this monster show to a close, but they follow with a 'Uncle John's Band' encore..  Enjoy.   Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 2/22/74 - Friday     Three     Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo [7:50] ; The Promised Land [3:37] ; Brokedown Palace [5:28] ; Jack Straw [4:10#] ; Eyes Of The World > China Doll > Wharf Rat > Sugar Magnolia Encore     Uncle John's Band  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod031221.mp3     thanks to all
Here's a fine set of music for your Friday courtesy of the Grateful Dead back on February 22, 1974.We continue from last week with the second of three sets that the band favored us with to begin their quintessential 1974 tour. A fine recording here captures the nuances of Keith on Piano and of course the rest of the band's interplay which is especially notable on the wild 'Truckin' and the jams that follow. 'The Race is On' is a perfect way to bring in Spring, and don't overlook the 'China>Rider'; of course you're familiar with it, but this is a most excellent version.      Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 2/22/74 - Friday     Two     Tennessee Jed [7:49] ; Me And My Uncle [2:58] ; Ship Of Fools [5:31] ; The Race Is On [3:03] ; China Cat Sunflower [8:51] > I Know You Rider [5:26] ; Truckin' [7:47] > Nobody's Fault But Mine [3:07] > Jam [2:29] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [6:14]     You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod030521.mp3    thank you for your support.  Let's practice kindness when we can, and we always can
  The Dead opened up 1974 with this week's show from Winterland on February 22, 1974. They picked up where they left off in 1973 with a long smoker of a show - we'll hear set 1 this week and set 2 next week. Notable moments include a 22 beat start to 'Beat It On Down The Line', some great Keith throughout, a lovely 'It Must Have Been The Roses', the elusive 'Loose Lucy' and to top everything off, a very long and spacy 'Playin' In the Band' which closes the set and is punctuated with Garcia teasing the 'Slipknot!' jam in several spots.      Grateful Dead Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA 2/22/74 - Friday     One   U.S. Blues [5:27] ; Beat It On Down The Line [3:22] ; Brown Eyed Women [4:52] ; Mexicali Blues [3:36] ; It Must Have Been The Roses [4:43] ; Black Throated Wind [6:53] ; They Love Each Other [5:39] ; Big River [5:08] ; Loose Lucy [6:35] ; El Paso [4:33] ; Row Jimmy [8:30] ; Playing In The Band [20:55] You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod022621.mp3    thanks for your kind support
This week we do a little carryover from Fat Tuesday with this Mardi Gras set from February 7, 1989 at the Kaiser in Oakland California.  The set starts with the sounds of the Mardi Gras parade, backed of course by Mickey and Billy on drums. The band starts with a rather unique introduction to Iko, Iko, but its certainly a good choice for the date. The 'Victim' that follows starts as a total train wreck, but does settle down into a trancelike beat. Brent's 'We Can Run' follows, with its warning that seems as ominous as ever. A nice 'Uncle John's Band' takes us into drums. A nice 'Wheel' flows out of Space, and the post-drums highlight to my ears is a fine version of 'Foolish Heart'. 'Good Lovin' closes the set, but Jerry gives us a nice 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door' to end the evening and this fine recording.   Grateful Dead February 7, 1989 - Tuesday Henry J.

Seeing as how Fat Tuesday is coming right up... I decided to feature a Dead show that took place on Fat Tuesday back in 1989.. This one from Oakland on 2/7/1989.  This is a fairly newly released UltraMatrix recording, and I think it sounds great. The first set which we present this week, features two very new (at the time) numbers - the first performance of 'Just a Little Light' and the second, of 'Standing on the Moon'. Naturally these sound different than what they would become, but I love hearing them when they are shinny and new ;)  Bobby does an excellent job on the the Dylan tune and I think Jerry is nailing it throughout.  Next week we'll hear the second set, complete with sounds from the Mardi Gras parade.   Grateful Dead February 7, 1989 - Tuesday Henry J.

Hey Now! It was such a cold and snowy day I almost didn't get this one ready but never fear.. we have a great set this week featuring some wonderful Pigpen and early, high-energy Grateful Dead.  As promised we have the remainder of the show from January 24, 1971 at the Seattle Center in Seattle Washington.  It starts with Bobby saying they were 'running short on time' and then they proceed to play another 35 minutes or so of high voltage jammin' Dead music. Pig is in prime form on Lovelight which goes into Not Fade Away, then into Goin' Down the Road before returning into Lovelight.. Following a frantic drums, the band closes with another high-energy, Good Lovin'.    Grateful Dead Seattle Center Arena Seattle, WA 1/24/71 - Sunday Two     Turn On Your Love Light > Not Fade Away > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Turn On Your Love Light > Drums > Good Lovin'  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod020521.mp3 Take care of yourselves and each other!  thank you for your kind support ;) 
I guess I just can't get enough of that good stuff.. .. :) but at any rate this week I've decided to bring you a rather rare treat. Back in 1971, the band finished a short, 3 show swing in the Northwest with this blistering performance in a small venue in Seattle on a Sunday night. This took place on January 24, 1971. This one is sparkin' from beginning to end, but I've split it up so we will hear part 1 this week and part 2 next week. It starts appropriately, with Truckin', then a wonderful China>Rider, which includes an incredible transition between the two. Pigpen follows with  the old blues standard - 'It Hurts Me Too'. A blistering Cumberland Blues follows, then a better than average 'Casey Jones' - Pig has some nice organ work here!  Sugar Mag closes set one in fine fashion and I can only imagine that everyone was dancing now! I've included the great Pigpen version of  'Hard to Handle' which opened set 2, and gives you a hint of things to come next week.      Grateful Dead Seattle Center Arena Seattle, WA 1/24/71 - Sunday One Truckin' China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider   It Hurts Me Too   Cumberland Blues   Casey Jones   Sugar Magnolia Two     Hard To Handle   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod012921.mp3  Thank you so much for your kind support of the Deadpod!   
 It's a new year but I've decided to go *way* back for some primal Dead on this week's Deadpod.  This comes to us from January 17th, 1968 at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco. What a treasure of early/classic tunes we have here! Now I'll admit, the sound is sometimes muddy and the vocals are at times less than clear.. however give the age and provinance of this recording I thought it very worth listening to and hope you enjoy it as well.  Some of the highlights of course are Pigpen on the Lovelight, and check out the fast pacing throughout. Jerry sounds so different on China Cat! I always love hearing the old 'New Potato Caboose' and 'Born Cross-eyed', but what is probably the highlight is the great almost 16 minute 'Spanish Jam'.  The sound is psychedelic throughout, and if you can overlook the flaws I think you will enjoy this return to some of the roots of our favorite band!    Grateful Dead Carousel Ballroom San Francisco, CA 1/17/68 - Wednesday     One     Turn On Your Love Light [15:22] % Dark Star [#4:48] > China Cat Sunflower [4:04] > The Eleven [10:01] > New Potato Caboose [8:30] > Born Cross-Eyed [2:34] > Spanish Jam [15:47]   Two      Beat It On Down The Line [2:52] ; Morning Dew [7:43] ; Cryptical Envelopment > The Other One > Cryptical Envelopment [10:05] ; Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [13:49]    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod012221.mp3   Thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod!  ... and leave it on!   
This week we wind up our 'holiday' series of Deadpods with the fabulous third set from the band's New Year's Eve performance in Oakland on December 31st, 1982. This third set features guest  appearances with Etta James and the Tower of Power horns. The band clearly has a blast here, and despite it being the third set play with a great deal of passion and energy.. Phil opens with that familiar bass line from 'Lovelight' and Bobby leads them into it. After a couple of verses and a quite interesting solo from Garcia, Bobby introduces Etta James who takes command of the song, and indeed most of the set! This is a great blues set with 'Tell Mama' coming next. They slow things down with a funky 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' but then the spirit of Pigpen returns with a fine 'Hard to Handle' - Etta is really digging Garcia's work here as you'll hear. They close with a fine 'Midnight Hour' to wind down the set.  The boys come back, by themselves to deliver a sweet 'Brokedown Palace' encore. On the tape we get to hear Bill Graham send the crowd home as only he would...    Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA 12/31/82 - Friday Three     Turn On Your Love Light > Tell Mama ; Baby What You Want Me To Do ; Hard To Handle ; In The Midnight Hour Encore     Brokedown Palace Comments     Third set with Etta James and tower of Power             Now I decided since this was  a shorter set, to include some music I've been wanting to play over the holidays that is just a hot little jam.. this comes from a set variously labeled 'Mickey and the Heartbeats' or 'Jerry Garcia and Friends'.. from Christmas eve, 1968 at the Matrix in San Francisco. I think the sound is out of sight for such an old tape..    The Matrix San Francisco CA, 12/24/68 - Tuesday Mickey & The Heartbeats Jam    You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod011521.mp3   Thanks so much for your kind support of the Deadpod!!    a small reminder that we are also on Facebook and I post the links on Instagram weekly.   
 Hello Friends!  Hope this week's Deadpod provides a bit of a respite from the storms swirling around our heads... this week we get to hear the second set from the band's New Year Eve performance on December 31, 1982.  NYE is of course the one time of the year when everyone knew what was going to open the second set - and while you'll hear some decidedly 'un-grateful dead' like sound effects at the opening, Sugar Magnolia eventually comes through like ringing a bell, and the band, and Bobby, do an excellent job of celebrating the entrance of a new year. Jerry then goes into a fine 'Sugaree' in noticeably better voice :) 'Man Smart (Woman Smarter) comes next with a nice long guitar intro. Everyone offers some fine contributions here. This ends suddenly, but Jerry brings out 'Ship of Fools' and delivers it quite soulfully. After some searching, the band goes into 'Playin' then drifts into drums and sp;ace. Eventually they launch 'Not Fade Away' with a powerful Brent intro. This one had John Cipollina joining the band, although his contributions are a bit hard to pick out. Instead of turning into 'Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad' (which it seems Garcia is going into) he instead brings out 'Deal'. They finish the set with a great return to 'Sunshine Daydream' and after a nice jam at the end Bobby announces that they will return in a couple minutes - for the third set we'll hear next week.    Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA 12/31/82 - Friday Two     Sugar Magnolia > Sugaree > Man Smart (Woman Smarter) ; Ship Of Fools ; Playing In The Band > Drums > Space > Not Fade Away ; Deal > Sunshine Daydream You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod010821.mp3   Thank you for your kind support of the Deadpod!  "Though I would not caution all I still might warn a few Don't lend your hand to raise no flag Atop no ship of fools"    
 Happy New Year!  From a request from a longtime frirend of the Deadpod - I've decided to celebrate the end of 2020 with this fun and raucous show from NYE 1982. I'll present this one over the next couple weeks and hope can feel and enjoy the fun that the band and everyone in attendance had on this special night 39 years ago.  The first set which we'll hear this week is a bit short, but still well played and tight. Garcia's voice is a bit creaky but he makes up for it with some very nice work on the guitar. A long 'C.C. Rider' has Mathew Kelly sitting in, but I believe Brent adds much to this one (and throughout the set). 'Cumberland Blues' is for me the highlight here as Jerry really brings some nice licks. Brent delivers a short but nice 'Far From Me', Weir is forceful as usual on 'Cassidy' and a bit screechy at times on 'Looks Like Rain' but these are fine versions. 'Ramble On Rose' always brings a smile, and a 'Day Job' to end the year seems quite appropriate.   Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA 12/31/82 - Friday One     Cold Rain And Snow ; C C Rider ; Cumberland Blues ; Far From Me ; Cassidy ; Ramble On Rose ; Looks Like Rain ; Keep Your Day Job  You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod010121.mp3  A word of thanks for your kind support over the holidays and throughout this last, difficult year. I very much appreciate your kindness. May these songs fill the air with much joy and well being this next year!
