Love this read. Thanks for posting!!

Quick story to share:

1979 Hampton, Va to see the Dead.  I was among the first one's in. In comes a guy with a leg cast and a girl wearing a skirt, not uncommon at Dead shows, he pulls the mics out of his cast and she lifts up her skirt and has a Sony D5 taped to her inner thigh.

Amazing what these folks do and have done so we can all enjoy the music forever.

Thanks all you peeps!  <3

That is hilarious searchingbig.

I used to love sending blank Maxell cassettes plus a SASE and getting recordings back in the mail.   I got a ton of Pearl Jam shows in the 90s thanks to some great tapers.  It was so fun to get the mail back waiting to get back tapes that I had tapes floating around the country.
