PaniCast 62 Leap Through Time


Happy leap year day every body!

Despite their storied career spanning thousands of shows and three decades, Widespread Panic has only played on Leap Day once. February 29, 1988. Unfortunately I do not have a copy of this show to share with you.

So what I did instead was start with something from March of 1988, since tomorrow is March 1. I then leapt through time on the hard drives and listened to sections of about a dozen shows to come up with this week's cast. March also marks the tenth anniversary of the infamous Australian and European runs of spring 1998. So I thought I would dust off a selection of songs from that tour for your enjoyment.

"Well come on back. I hope everyone's prepared."

Nice Panicast. When they dropped into Don't Be Denied, I realized that was from Knoxville. That's probably the best part of one of my favorite shows. It also happens to be my 50th.

Someone posted the 2/29/88 show, but I've haven't gotten around to listening to it. Anyway, it's out there in mp3 format, at least.
