    You can stream last night show at the Crazy Horse Saloon at the following link. I listened to the show and the band was on Fire. No surprise there. The radio hosts could not believe what they heard.

    I love it! Recording sounded great, room sounded full and the band sounded like they were having fun! The radio hosts reaction at setbreak was great even though they thought "For What it's Worth" was a new Yarn song! Goes to show whatever they play they make their own-

    Great show, excellent sound, good (as always) set list. Sorry it came to such an abrupt halt at 2 hours. The hosts were overwhelmed by what they heard. "Off the hook" "juiced up" lead guitar was "over the top" and loved hearing about the "agility move". One of the most enjoyable things about someone seeing / hearing Yarn for the first time is the reaction, it is always universal and I have yet to find ANYONE who has come out of their first Yarn experience saying anything but. To listen to these guys on the air gushing is freaking awesome. Those of us who have had the privilege of listening, seeing and being a part of Yarn and it's family have known for a long time what many are just finding out. That is an awesome feeling to be part of. "THIS IS THE YEAR" See you Friday night Tennessee?

    Hi all,

    Just got approval to post here so I'm a bit late with this, but the archive page at KVMR isn't smart enough to know when a show begins & ends - it dutifully changes shows at the top of the hour. So to hear the entire Yarn broadcast you have to listen partially to the show before and the show after. But it's all a moot point because I finally got the show tracked, flac'd, and tagged. It's here:

    We at KVMR were understandably stoked to have them back, and nobody was disappointed. The fact that they went on to play for Bernie right after our show was just icing on the cake. There's something magic going on here, and the Yarniacs here in the Sierra Foothills are excited to be a part of it..

    Listened to this show yesterday at the Archie. Thanks for putting it up Buzz.

    Yes, indeed, there is something magic going on here...

    ....just noticed that the opener is listed as Dear Mama I'm So Sorry but it's actually Hope For Better Days.

    Thanks Reckless. Not sure where I got "Dear Mama" but it must have been from another setlist somewhere. It's fixed now.

    It happens. Do you do a lot of recording? We started with a DAT deck for the last few years of the Grateful Dead. Nowadays I pretty much just tape Yarn. After a while, you start to not bother with stuff you won't listen to.

    If I had a buck for every Ratdog disc I have!

    The band is on Fire. What was the name of the guy who used to play Mandolin in the band? As much as I loved Andrews work in the band I don't miss him at all. Last night I danced my way around the supermarket listening to this show. I can't pick a favorite from this show because they are all so good. It's nice to see that they did not forget about songs like I hate You which was probably a song that was on the scraped album. Roadhouse was smokin. So was the rest of the show.

    Likewise, I had a portable DAT (a Panasonic SV-255) for the last years of GD. Before that, Cassettes. I also did a lot of early recording of music festivals using the audio track of VHS HiFi and later with a PCM encoder. Like you, I've backed off a lot with live recording, and try to concentrate on things I'll listen to. Keeping things together at KVMR consumes a great portion of my life these days. We probably over-extend ourselves technically for a small-town radio station, but it's all part of serving the community.

    That Roadhouse turned out to be what it was because Blake broke a string during the opening, so Rod and Bob Woods were forced into that long jam (gee how terrible) while Blake replaced his string. We had a separate mic feed for Rod's guitar because it was so loud in the room & therefore down in the mix. I wish we had done the same thing for Bob Woods.

    Thanks for the info. That was not the 1st time Blake broke a string and won't be the last. Blake is not just strumming 3 chords. He plays with so much intensity. It always amazes me that someone can jump on stage and play with the band like they've been doing it for years.
