... ... IKO o IKO... WOW o WOW, no1 has commented on this show since started?

Listen daily to Sirius/XM to shows at 3AM, Noon & 9PM for years & years. Its like a flashback to many of the 198 shows I attended from 3/13/1981 Utica NY thru 6/4/1995 Mt View CA.

So share what you can remember of any from shows gone by, we all appreciate them.

Ditto that last comment. Thanks Sirius. I was only 13 in 1981 but just 5 years later I was an eager freshman on this campus after doing my first run of Dead shows over the recently ended summer (done come and gone my oh my). Four shows in 5 days, 2 Alpine, 1 Cincinnati, 1 Akron changed my life before I even started that freshman year. Sadly the Dead did not return to Champaign during my tenure there but I sure did a lot of traveling to shows during breaks. What a time!

1st show. 18 year old freshman at U of I. Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin and hard rock / prog (Rush, ELP, Tull, UFO and the like) were my go to's at the time. I was just into Zappa who I had seen at Ass Hall two weeks prior.

Only Dead record I owned was the Long Strange Trip compilation. Cumberland Blues was the only song I knew. But 2nd set Jerry blew me away (Franklins!) and the Lost Sailor/Saint/Terrapin was sufficiently proggy to draw me in.

Next day I went to the record store and got Live Dead and Europe 72 and I was hooked. 50+ shows until the end in 95.

I miss 'em!
