DSOTM # 169 - 7/13/84
A really fun trip to July 13, 1984 at the Greek. It was a full moon, as well as a Friday The 13th... and there was a shooting star prior to the encore, which is a doozy. For our Half-time show we have some Van Halen from the Fall of 1982, a tribute to the late great Eddie Van Halen. We hope you all have a great and safe Holiday season... stay warm and don't get cooties.

DSOTM # 167 - 12/9/90
As promised last month, we continue our journey deep into 1990. This show, 20 shows in with this line-up (last month was 20 shows until the end of that line-up) finds the band in "swinging for the fences" form. An amazing outdoor afternoon concert in the desert. Halftime brings us some JGB from the same time period... really good stuff this month!

This months show comes to us from Brent Mydland's last tour of the West Coast. A great show and a great sounding recording... this show will tie in with next months show perfectly, a book end. For half-time we have String Cheese at High Sierra Music Festival. I love 1990 Dead, and I am pretty sure you guys will love this!

This episode is dedicated to James Saraniecki, a long time friend and OG "Chino Head"... gone way too soon, and suffering no longer
DSOTM # 165 - 4/26/69
This months show is one big, long, superbly well-played set. Amazing stuff. I am not sure how they kept that much energy going for such a long stretch, I guess thats the wonder of youth. Since it is only one set, there is no halftime, but we spend some time after the show answering your mail. A lot of fun.... enjoy the ride!

DSOTM # 164 - 7/7/78
As always, here we are with another amazing musical journey with the Grateful Dead (& Friends). This months show is the Dead's first show at Red Rocks, and I think they deliver just fine. For halftime we have some great solo Rick Danko with his toned down interpretations of his material with The Band. Always good stuff coming your way... enjoy the ride!
