As some of you may have seen, I posted in the metatopic an offer to seed a 4 show vine from 1979, with the first person to respond naming the shows and having the vine named after him. Beggar's Tomb responded and selected the following shows, which will be vined in BOTH SHN/FLAC and WAV:

79-02-09.aud-nak.glyde.13848
79-02-10.aud.glyde.13849
79-02-11.naks.vernon.16468
79-02-17.sbd.kempka

There are the last 4 Donna & Keith shows. Three of them are AUDs. I have not listened to these shows yet. I have listened to all of the January shows and the first set of 2/3 so far (starting tomorrow off with what is supposed to be one of THE Scarlet > Fires!). Most of the shows I have listened to from this tour are good, some very good. The sound quality has been acceptable though not stellar (I graded most as B+ or A- for sound quality). It isn't until the fall tour that SBDs readily circulate and I may be wrong (ain't often right...), so don't quote me, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that the master reels for much of the year are missing from the vault.

Oh, and I can't take credit for the vine name. Pomo1 suggested it. Thanks all!

smiley dave

Christmas 2010

was probably the last we saw of smiley dave here

he might have checked in for a couple months after but couldn't handle being at a computer
(more specifically looking at a computer screen)
I got a PM from him around that time and he gave me a number - actually talked to him once or twice

I know Canyon Critter was also talking to him about getting what vines he had
but doubt that ever happened.

no doubt he had 10 or 12 vines at the time
a couple I was behind him on...

Looking through some back pages...

Has it really been over a year and 8 months? Any of the old timers ever get in touch with smiley? If I remember correctly he had some serious health issues and was hospitalized. I believe it was his nephew (?) that logged in to tell us that. You are in my prayers Dave wherever you are.
I'm thinking once I get all of the vines I have caught up either reseeding this or doing a New Vine for early 79. Since I was the last to send this out I will keep these shows moving if there is any interest.
