Ten Tunes For Friday: 1994

Many enjoyed the focus on one era last Friday, so this week we put the magnifying lens on 1994. Without choosing one particular tour, here is a tasty sampling from the entire year. Enjoy another installment of Ten Tunes, and have a great weekend!

    oops. too late to the game^

  2. joe Says:

    I have a recommendation for the 2011 choice. Universally agreed upon as the best and worst of the year so far.

  3. Jtran Says:


    I’ll change it up. I’ve heard that Wormtown show a bunch, I just like my source. My source for 11/23/97 is pretty weak to the point that I shy away from that show a lot.

    I think I originally got 10/27/95 at your recommendation..spun it once, but wanted to go with something a bit unorthodox (i.e. not 12/31 etc)

  4. Jtran Says:


    Sorry I forgot to mention that year 🙂

    Hasn’t left the ipod yet.

  5. DukeOfLizards Says:

    I hope a year from now 1/1 is still universally agreed upon as the worst show of 2011.

  6. BingosBrother Says:

    Love the optimism, but IMO 1/1/11 was a great show, regardless of era. If that is the worst show this year then this could be the best year ever percentage-wise.

  7. lumpyhead Says:

    ^ me too duke

  8. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Jtran- KP remastered 11/23/97 and it sounds a whole lot better than what I had previously:


    Go Pack! Never thought I’d write that. Anyone but the Steelers.

  9. guitarpicker420! Says:

    Spinning a dead show and hanging with my little girl. The Dead bust into Women Are Smarter and my daughter’s face lights up. “Wow Daddy, they are good like Harry Belafonte!”
    Out of the mouths of babes.

  10. gavinsdad Says:

    Wiz Khalifa reps illadelph as well. wanna watch a savvy marketer (who also has flow) at work? watch Wiz.

    last rapper to “rep” pitts that hard was Paris. anyone that old?

  11. Mdawg Says:

    some SuperSunday bluegrass…


    Go Steelers! Boo Packers!

  12. willowed Says:

    So every year me and my crew meet for drinks before the big game. Then we go home to our families.

    Is it bad that I’m sauced?

    I hope not.

    Wife is not happy.

  13. Mr.Miner Says:

    I think 1/1 will be middle of the pack of 2011.

  14. willowed Says:

    I hope so Miner

  15. Robear Says:

    miner, spun the Miami 12/29 first set video. i’m with you. would love to hear some remasters of that run. ‘Wolfmans’ just so fluid and sick.

  16. butter Says:

    my lil brother txted me a few weeks ago: ” i hit 3 of Miner’s top 10 shows of 2010!” –he was pumped, he caught 8 shows total

  17. Calpain Says:

    just hooked my roommate up with some Gregory Isaacs, Marley, Tosh just last week, he is already requesting more. I think he may have the dub bug…

    Just sent him AJ’s Rub a Dub mix

  18. butter Says:

    just spun SC Tweezer > Superbowl pregame

  19. butter Says:

    i agree, 1.1 should be middle of the pack by years end

  20. butter Says:

    thing is 1.1 set 2 and encore the newest song is “Twist”

    that’s not going to be the norm, imho

  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

  24. Gavinsdad Says:

    Butterfly – u in grad school I gather? You ever catch a burg at Louis lunch?

  25. Gavinsdad Says:

    ^or the fried dog wrapped in bacon at the doodle? I need a first hand report.

    Sort of a hamburger weirdo. Own the Hamburger America book and documentary DVD. Like the smashed griddled kind the best. I read the A hamburger Today blog as well. Strange habit but I dont really eat tons of em. I just like knowing where they are. Philly has a few but nothing OG….just the tavern burger sort of thing.
