Brokedown Palace

I was enamoured with the version of Brokedown Place that was played Sirius XM 57 on Tuesday early evening (9/15) by a female vocalist. Can anyone tell me who that was and what recording? Thanks much.

Sirius/XM Grateful Dead Channel

I can't express how happy I am now that XM carries the GD Channel. Now I enjoy the Dead with every mile I drive. Honestly, I didn't know how well I'd like it as previously I listened to GD discs (got 'em all!!) on the car CD player. However, I know find myslef listening almost exclusively to the GD Channel in the car. Interestingly, I now listen to the Dead on my computer a lot more. As I type this I am ripping the entire Dick's Picks series so I can listen at home.

Sweet I'll be there live!

And at the Boulder show the night before!

With Denver being Mark Karan's 650th show and it being aired on the GDC it is looking like it could be one hell of a show!!

Thanks for the info!

Today In Grateful Dead History

I like the show, however, I got one beef with Lemieux's presentation. Play the songs first, then give me the schpeal on what went down this night. Or give me the schpeal but don't tell me the songs I'm about to hear. The only joy of hearing this stuff is not knowing what's coming next. How much fun would it be if the Grateful Dead came out and announced the set list before the show began. It would suck.

So if you read this stuff David, how about it? I like hearing the schpeal if you were there and any insights to the crowd, weather, ambiance, etc from the show your about to play. But don't announce the songs beforehand. I like to think 99% of the Heads out there can recognize the tunes and it makes listening all that more enjoyable when you don't know what's coming next.

And it would be better than having to turn off the radio until yer done yakkin' and guess when to turn it back on.

deadhead style

i agree donna would be the cat's meow if she played a few show's im going to the chicago show and that would be awsome to see her play with the dead,seen donna a few times at vibes in ny 2005 2006,and i was impressed with her show's seen her 2007 in black river falls wisconson,the three g's,i was disapointed with the turn out of hippies maybe 500 people there when she played only about 50 people watched her,i was sort of embarrased for her,thought they wouldn't come back to the three g's in black river falls,last year ohio.2009 back here i'm shocked!the campground is awsome,hopefully more hippies this year!give me some feed back,i wish and hope the dead play at alpine valley one of the greatest out door venue's in the good old usa!
