005 – Grateful Americana

This month on the Brokedown Podcast we take a look at the Grateful Dead’s lyrical Americana. More an overview than a deep-dive, we’re going to cover a fair bit of ground like a freight with a good signal and a head of steam.

The music is broken into two sets of great live music, with discussion before and after each. So fire this up along with the backyard barbecue and have yourself a real good time.
