Hi! Listening on...

Hi Jeff. I just got home so relaxing is not an option. Must. Hear. Music.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:09am gregorianpants:

Good evening all!
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:12am Jeff Conklin:

How about listening to music AND relaxing??

Morning, all
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:14am Franco Twinkie:

Jeff, that is a bold concept you present. I will attempt to sit down and mull it over.
  Mon. 1/14/19 12:20am Mildly Surprised:

Has your mulling produced any results?
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:22am Jeff Conklin:

Im curious as well

Good morning broadcaster Conklin.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:25am Franco Twinkie:

I am sitting now, so that's a start.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:44am Franco Twinkie:

I worked for Allen Wachs for a number of years and we never once talked about music. To bad, but in context of the jobs we were doing there just wasn't room for that. Missed opportunity for sure.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:44am Jeff Conklin:

No way!
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:46am Franco Twinkie:

Way. Jeff, I'll tell you about it sometime.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:49am Franco Twinkie:

Saw Rick Roberts doing this with The FBB in 1972 with a globular light show behind him. It was the first time I ever smokes hash. I was sixteen.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 12:52am tak:

do you still smoke?

@DJJC: As loyal listeners of your show Aitch and I would like to hear some of your favorite live Hawkwind jawns before you move to S. Dakota. TIA
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:07am Jeff Conklin:

@mb: Ha!
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:07am Adamsworth:

Jeff thanks for playing this right now I've been writing a weird email to my dad, ha ha
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:07am Adamsworth:

this is just what I need to hear
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 1:09am Tome:

HIyAs Good morning JC and all,,this just feels right about now ,,, nice vocals this version indeed !
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:09am Adamsworth:

were you ever into Will Oldham, Jeff?
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:11am Jeff Conklin:

Love a lot of Oldham stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 1:11am mb:

I'm a semi-noob when it comes to live Dead but i will guess '77
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

I said it in the intro, Mb! 72
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 1:15am mb:

My fault. I went in to a tangent when you declared 'Why would anyone cover the Beatles in this day and age? Why?'
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:17am Agent Peter:

Sounds like a great show whenever it was...
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:18am Jeff Conklin:

Also, glad to soundtrack weird dad emails, weddings and bar mitvahs
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:22am joe:

Funny that the artwork is from Buffalo '89. Good Truckin' but a wee bit of a different band from the '72 lineup. The Other One on this date is where these guys earn the paycheck.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:23am Jeff Conklin:

@joe: Not following you, Joe. Where are you seeing artwork?
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:25am Franco Twinkie:

Tak, New Years Eve I broke my abstinence in San Francisco and walked around looking at the Victorians all lit up with twinkly lights, and I said YES, More of this!
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:25am joe:

it changed. it was from the official release when I first logged on.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:27am Agent Peter:

El Paso "82? On the way to Jerry's birthday at Manor Downs? What? :-)
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:28am joe:

Sorry, official 89' release "truckin' to buffalo" was what was displayed when I first logged on. It has since changed to the Portland '72 release.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:28am Jeff Conklin:

I'm still lost here. How are you listening that you see artwork??
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:30am joe:

on the live stream window. there is a box in the top right corner that displays artwork.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:32am Agent Peter:

they're jamming our signals ace
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:32am Jeff Conklin:

Ah, well look at that! I had no idea haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 1:35am mb:

"Is this still "Truckin'?"

as heard at the recent Touch of Grey show at Willie McBrides
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:37am Agent Peter:

this part sure is purty. think it falls into the "jam" category.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:37am saucerful:

Hi all, enjoying the show (been relaxing to the music). Love this Dead set. Thanks Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:38am Jeff Conklin:

@mb: Had to google that. That band any good? If you wanna see top notch GD channelling, get thyself to a High Time show...
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:38am Jeff Conklin:

St Stephen adjacent jam, Agent Peter
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:41am Agent Peter:

But on the handwritten list on the side of the ol' cassette box it would just read "Jam------>" and then on the next line whatever it was they jammed into. I'm back in the olden timey taping days that's what it would like.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:42am saucerful:

ha that's funny Agent Peter
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:45am saucerful:

Okay you all that now Dead show dates off the top of your head, when was that legendary show in Oregon in 1972 that was Ken Kesey's Cremery I think? Was it before or after this show at the Paramount in Portland?
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:45am saucerful:

*know
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:45am Jeff Conklin:

8/27/72
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:46am saucerful:

ha wow, that was fast! thank you :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 1:47am mb:

@DJJC: Cream of the crop for the Jersey scene if you catch them with the right drummer, imo...
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:48am saucerful:

It's amazing listening to this and then thinking about what they did one month later. Mind blowing...
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:48am Jeff Conklin:

@mb: Good to know!
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:50am joe:

It fair to say the boys were on a roll in '72. And not a stretch to say the roll lasted for 12 months.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:52am saucerful:

Cool, I love learning about the Dead on this show.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 1:53am Jeff Conklin:

@saucerful: That Veneta show (8/27/72) was captured wonderfully on film and officially released as "Sunshine Daydream". Well worth a watch!
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:54am gdevo:

!!!
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:55am saucerful:

Yeah, I've seen that! Great live footage...and I thought of that while listening to this July set.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:56am Agent Peter:

And had a 10 year anniversary show for that one in '82. Debut of West LA Fadeaway, and either Hell in a Bucket or Day Job
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:57am Agent Peter:

Yes, well worth the watch. Many portions of it on YT.
  Mon. 1/14/19 1:59am Larry Hirshberg:

Agent Peter - Veneta '82 bust out was Day Job. And West LA. I was there. Good times. Peter Rowan was one of the openers, Played a sweet solo set on the main stage. Worked perfectly for that day! Robert Cray Band played on a side stage...
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:01am joe:

if you really want your moneys worth of Live dead, pass on the Veneta show and head over to the next show in Boulder, CO. (1972-09-03)
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:02am gregorianpants:

For me 73 always edged out 72 in terms of both jamming but also setlist variance.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:07am Jeff Conklin:

DAY JOB NOOOOOOO
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:09am Agent Peter:

Larry - Was a birthday show for me. Next night in Seattle opening with one of the best Jack Straws ever. Phil well out of control. That Iowa-Oregon-Seattle trek was a lot of highway miles.
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:10am Agent Peter:

Don't give it away! :-)
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:12am joe:

Love the William Tyler. kinda wondered where you would go after '72 Dead & the MacKay - Tyler combo was nice
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:17am Jeff Conklin:

HEard a real nice '82 show this morning driving upstate, will have to check the Relisten app for the date. Gorgeous Cassidy. Think it was September...
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:21am Jeff Conklin:

9/12/82 if anyone is still here..
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:24am Agent Peter:

Was going to guess second night at Frost
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:26am tak:

i like this
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:27am Agent Peter:

Audiences too coked out at FLA shows...
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:27am katharsis:

Better late than never
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:29am Agent Peter:

Anyway.....72 was an excellent listen, as is this vibe. Very calming.
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:30am BEAVO:

Nice Waylon cover
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:34am Jeff Conklin:

wow thanks I had no idea this was a cover. country music really is a blind spot...
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:43am tak:

you played this guy a few weeks ago? and I forgot to check him out. cool sound.
also the sound on the kick drum on that dead set was Real.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:46am Jeff Conklin:

Which guy? Matt Lajoie? Yeah, i think ive played his whole new album by now ha
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:49am Diezel Tea:

Hey dudettes & dudes. I realized I didn't yet check in and praise the playlist. In fantastic news, I've almost finally conquered the bronchitis I've been battling this past week.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:49am Jeff Conklin:

Ah, glad youre feeling better.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:50am Diezel Tea:

I'm assuming this isn't the Peter Lang from Glen Ridge, right? Cause this guy slays and the other dude knows a handful of chords, at least that was it 10 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 2:51am mb:

Is Wilt Press considered a private press or a "label?" I was always fascinated by private press record dealers at shows and never understood the culture or the price tags.
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:55am katharsis:

Thank you
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:57am tak:

(yeah I meant Lajoie) cool way to start off this monday. have a week, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/14/19 2:57am mb:

pretty good show. killer ending. Thanks Jeff
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:57am Jeff Conklin:

I believe Wilt Press is his own label? Self-released/private press can sometimes mean the same thing but also not?
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 2:58am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for hanging, everyone. Be well..
  Mon. 1/14/19 3:06am jon:

Good night jeff!!
just got out of the garcia peoples/howlin rain gig in Bend Oregon

What a night! Will listen back as I get the chance later
  Mon. 1/14/19 3:55am katharsis:

Hellos thanks for music. All beautiful peeps cigs or no cigs.
  Mon. 1/14/19 4:02am katharsis:

For all things regarding substance use I’m in the harm reduction camp. See book “over the influence” -even if you want to quit all at once and stay abstinent there are valuable perspectives to be gained here.
Avatar Mon. 1/14/19 4:24am gregorianpants:

for me it's all about that CBD man

stay away from abusing stims though
I'm convinced they put holes in yer brainbucket...
  Mon. 1/14/19 2:26pm JD sr:

Some very nice mellow loner vibes in that first set. Love it!
