This week we stay on the Continent for a show that took place on October 12, 1981 at the Olympia Halle in Munich, West Germany during the band's Fall European Tour. For the most part this is quite an excellent recording, although it does have a couple patches.. They come out firing on an up-tempo 'Jack Straw', then Garcia delivers a more laid back …
 
This week's Deadpod features the fine recording of the second set of the band's performance on September 20, 1974 in Paris France. This one is pretty sweet all the way through, starting with 'China Cat>I Know You Rider'. The 'Big River' that follows is nicely up tempo. Another highlight for me is the 'Brokedown Palace' which is placed right in the …
 
This week's Deadpod features a wonderful recording of the band's performance in Paris France on September 20, 1974. This is a splendid recording, and a very interesting performance. The band opens with a spirited 'Cumberland Blues' followed by a nice 'Jack Straw'. The first-set 'Scarlet Begonias' features some very nice Phil leads. Bobby's vocals a…
 
We have a great second set for your Labor Day weekend enjoyment! This one is from the Greek Theater on August 19, 1989. This one certainly goes against the old thought that the band didn't really jam it out at the Greek.. We start with a fine 'China>Rider'.. the transition really catches fire! A wonderful opener, which then leads right into 'Playin…
 
Greetings Dead Freaks! This week I have Jen Powers & Mathew Rolin of the Powers/Rolin Duo on the show. We talk about improvised music, their work as a duo, individually, and their new album with Jayson Gerycz (Cloud Nothings). After our chat, I spin a lengthy mix of Grateful Dead because, what could be better? "Lamplighter" from Gerycz/Powers/Rolin…
 
This week I came across a fun show from August 19, 1989 at the Greek Theater in Berkeley California. The opener is so much fun -when you listen you just know you're in for a treat. A great 'Jack Straw' follows, played just at the right tempo :) Brent follows with 'We Can Run' - and its hard not to reflect on how little has changed.. 'Tennessee Jed'…
 
This week's second set from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City NJ, is one of the best of that year, in my opinion. It starts out with a smokin' Help>Slip>Frank, the Slipknot here is particularly great. A wonderful summertime 'Dancing In the Street' follows, then 'The Wheel', and 'Samson'.. again Phil is way up in the mix and I only wish I could hear …
 
This week the Deadpod stays right in Jersey City, for this wonderful show from August of 1976. This show too, took place at Roosevelt Stadium on August 4, 1976. We start out with a long, dreamy 'Sugaree' - clocking in at over 14 minutes. Jerry is in good voice at this show, and you will notice that Phil is quite up front in this recording as well. …
 
I can think of no better way to celebrate the 'Days Between' than with this fabulous second set from Jerry's Birthday show on August 1, 1973 from Jersey City, New Jersey. All around excellence here. Just when you're settling in they give you a Dark Star for the ages - including probably the first 'mind left body jams'. They come up for air with 'El…
 
While Jerry's birthday is not until Sunday, I felt that there could be no better way to start off the 'Days Between' than with this humdinger of a show from August 1st, 1973. I realize this is only days after last week's Deadpod fom Watkins Glen, but, hey its one of the few, and probably the greatest of Jerry's Birthday show with the band. Now this…
 
Greetings, Dead Freaks! On this episode, I am joined by Dave Harrington. Dave has a lot of musical irons in the fire but his band, Darkside, has returned from hiatus with a new album entitled, Spiral. We talk about putting the duo back together, improvisation, Dave's numerous other projects and, of course, Grateful Dead. After the chat, there is a …
 
I originally thought I would play Brent Mydland's last show with the band - 7/23/1990 - but at the last moment decided I would bring you something much happier - the famous soundcheck from the Watkins Glen festival that took place on July 27, 1973. Long a favorite among Deadheads, you've likely heard this before - but this is one of those performan…
 
This is 10 years since the first podcast mix I made. Happy ten year Anniversary to Cosmic Lion Radio!!! It was at 8:08pm that night in 2011 that made the 8:08 Mix intent for a podcast, I just didn't know how to make a podcast yet. Here is that mix: https://www.mediafire.com/file/yay72ac5n38gswa/808_Mix_by_Cosmic_Lion.zip/file 10 years later and her…
 
Hey Now! what a great second set this week as we explore the rest of the band's performance on September 26, 1972 at teh Stanley Theater in Jersey City, New Jersey. Right out of the gate we get a wonderful psychedelic ride with a 20 minute 'Playin In The Band'. Phil is all over this. They follow up with the very last performance of 'You Win Again'.…
 
A great show from a great run is showcased in this week's Deadpod. This is from September 26, 1972 at the Stanley Theater in Jersey City, New Jersey. The first show of a three night run, this features some great guitar work by Garcia throughout, even here in the first set. A fine 'Cold Rain and Snow' might be overlooked by the early 'He's Gone', bu…
 
Happy 4th of July! This week we present the second set of the band's performance from Anchorage Alaska on the summer solstice, June 21, 1980. This is a fine setlist, and most of the songs are quite well-played. I think 'Big Railroad Blues' is a great opener, and the Samson and Delilah' that follows is quite swell. The pre-drums 'Terrapin' has a won…
 
A summer solstice show to celebrate the arrival of summer, this comes to us from the band's only trip to Alaska back on June 21, 1980. This first set opens with a strong 'Sugaree', and Jerry continues to light it up on the Minglewood that follows. In fact most of these first set songs are quite strong and fast paced, I'd particularly call your atte…
