006 – Happy Birthday, Jerry

August marks Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday and so, on the Brokedown Podcast, we’re celebrating.

This month we’ve put together to mixed sets of music spanning the 60’s, 70’s, and the 80’s. Tracks run from acoustic to very electric and all points in between. So open up the windows and crank the speakers. Light a candle and crack a smile because Jerry’s Birthday is a time to celebrate, not mourn.

We hope you enjoy this little sampler of the treasures Jerry and the Grateful Dead gave to us over the years.
