A weekly dose of the best live Grateful Dead music
||CleanDead show/podcast for 5/19/17||This week we get shown the light with the second set from the band's performance on May 5th, 1977 at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New Haven CT. Just as solid as the first set, this is an example of just how finely tuned the group was during this time. Ga||5/19/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 5/12/17||Every May I try to pay tribute to the mindblowing music the band produced 40 years ago.. This may be one of the last times I'm able to as I've featured almost everything that hasn't been released. But this week's selection I have yet to feature and it is||5/12/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 5/5/17||This week we continue with the second set of the Grateful Dead's performance on April 21st, 1971 at the Rhode Island Auditorium in Providence Rhode Island. This is one of those rare shows where the 2nd set is probably shorter than the first set, but it st||5/5/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 4/28/17||This week's Deadpod features a really fine show and recording from April 21, 1971.. often overshadowed by the 'closing of the Filmore East' recordings which happened soon afterwards I am certain you'll enjoy the fire and energy on this recording.

||CleanDead Show/podcast for 4/21/17||A somewhat uneven second set from April 8th 1985 is featured on this week's Deadpod. The set starts out with a cover of the Beatles' 'Revolution' which to my mind is one of those songs they never should have tried to cover. Luckily things pick up after th||4/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 4/14/17||This week I decided to perk up your spring with a high energy first set from a year I don't often feature (for good reason) 1985.. This one is from April 8th, 1985 from the Spectrum in Philadelphia PA. The boys are clearly playing with their setlists this||4/14/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 4/7/17||This week's Deadpod features the second set from the band's performance at a Rex Foundation benefit on April 1st, 1984. There's lots of Garcia to love here, from the Help->Slip-Frank, through Terrapin and Morning Dew.. We even have a Touch of Grey enco||4/7/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDead Show/podcast for 3/31/17||An early April Fool's present for my Deadpod friends this week. This show, from April 1st, 1984 is much better to my ears than it appears on paper (and the second set, scheduled for next week, is even better). This show was the last show of the first Rex||3/31/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
what a long strange trip it's been
I LOVE the Dead Show! These one-hour broadcasts (after a brief intro by the host) that capture the Dead live in concert (forgotten words, missed cues, and all). Perhaps you have to be a Dead Head like me... I magine my delight when one week the podcast was from the one and only performance I experienced: 17 May 1974 in Vancouver. The jams and continuous flowing from one song to another are great. It is also interesting to see how songs evolve through the band's career, changing from the studio album versions. Tune in!
The Best Dead Podcast
Without a doubt the best 60 to 90 minutes every week. Sit back, dim the lights and enjoy the show... it's like being there. And remember it's free here but your support is encouraged. Go to the Professors website. Southside AdGuy
The Dead are Alive!And well I might add.
I can't believe what a find this weekly radio event is! Thanks to Dave at "Joe Beef" Restaurant in Montreal for informing me of this DEAD SHOW. My laptop thanks you too. I couldn't find these live and historic events anywhere. Thanks John.
