The Deadpod

Jun 28, 2019

While it is still a few days off, since this is the last Deadpod before the big 4th of July holiday I thought it appropriate to bring you a big 'ol party from that date in GD history. This one comes from Manor Downs in Austin Texas on July 4th, 1981.We'll hear the first set this week, which of course starts with 'Jack Straw'... leave it to Bobby to screw up the iconic lyrics :)

It's an energetic set, Jerry has some very nice runs on Big River, Tennessee Jed is fine. Loser is always a favorite of mine, and the set-closing China>Rider is sure to please.

You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:


Had some issues this week with a sump pump which set back my sending out the CDs to the winners of the Aoxomoxoa giveaway.  I'll sure try to get those out this week.


Thanks for your kind support of the Deadpod.


Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
