To celebrate his 20th Episode, Rob welcomes very special guest Donna Jean Godchaux Mackay to the program.  Donna spent the 70s as a member of the Grateful Dead and shares her stories on how that came to be plus her musical experiences growing up.  Donna also explains how she, along with Jerry and Bob worked out their harmonies, the joy of the music, playing with other people and her current musical relationship with Jeff Mattson plus much much more in this very candid conversation.

Also on the program today is Lisa Mackey of Dark Star Orchestra to share her impressions of Donna and what it is like to perform Donna's parts and the unwavering support she gets from her.
