So0 great to listen to a Summer 88 show that is not in the community's circulation. Most of the official GD releases are from the 60's and 70's, so its awesome to get late unreleased late 80's shows here in the Tapers Section. Please post more from 87-90! Thank you so much and Happy Holidaze!
Have to say, I went for the '88 last week when I was here. Happy holidays all! :-)
