  1. First Time DSJubilee attendee questions?

    A marked up map was posted a few days ago in another topic of this foreum. The mark up is well done. With the bad knee she probably will not want to walk up the hill nor up the path to the RV area up there. Sounds like the VIP area is your best bet for her. Answers to most your questions are in the recent (last couple days) comments in the related topics. See you there... Peace and Love, Doc
  2. Spring Tour

    Looks like i m on the road from 6th through 19 Wanee.....Well I guess the first two nights in Atlanta might be coming the hour n half back home to sleep☮️🎼❤️ ♍️
  3. Early influences

    My earliest memory of music is from a night going way out into the back woods with my father when I was maybe five or six, following the creek to the blue water spring where the moonshine still was set in an old broke down stone house, and a Bluegrass band playing, people dancing and having a good time. The full moon shining overhead through the trees. Latter years my parents got an electric record player. My mother would play classical music from 45s which had to stack maybe ten little disks on the thick center shaft…interrupting the flow every couple minutes as the next disk dropped to the platter and the arm reset. My father had more popular music on the 45s . Catchy tunes like this one….
  4. Phil + Bobby / Together Again

    Chuck wasn't isolated when he was traveling with Hurdy. Those two saw as many shows as Joseph did in his day.
  5. 2018 Jubilee!

    Only 168 days until the first notes of music at the Jubilee and we are already getting fired up. As JJ and MC said, it being with all our friends that really make the campground spot special. Hopefully this year I will find a spot to camp near our friends instead of out in left field by my car. Peace and Love, Doc
  6. 2018 Jubilee!

    I've always been in the car camping area. It's a bit of a walk up that hill late at night but you get used to it quickly. Every year the nearby campers have become good friends. In past years there has been a gathering of DSO Forum friends camped in the RV area but this year, 2017, most of them were in the VIP camping area which was significantly less of a walk. No matter where you camp it will be a good weekend. Peace and Love, Doc
  7. Dead & Co Boston Review

    John Mayer is in hospital causing the cancellation of tonight's (Tuesday Dec 5) New Orleans show. No word on the Florida shows latter this week but I doubt if Mayer will be available. https://www.jambase.com/article/dead-company-postpones-new-orleans-concert

  11. Deadhead Archives

    Putting just "deadhead" into the Iphone Amp store brings up some disgustingly violent "games". An insult to our culture.
  12. Deadhead Archives

    He might be talking about "Relisten" amp. The description matches.
