Happy Holidays, Y’all


I’ll be spending the next week or so enjoying the Holiday Season with my family. As such I’ve decided to give The Midnight Cafe some much needed rest. I’ll probably start back up a little before the New Year, but if not I want to say a great big thanks to this community for making 2016 a little brighter for me.

I appreciate all the insightful comments, the ‘thank yous’ and even the complaints when I’ve screwed up. I literally would not keep posting all this great music if it wasn’t for your words.

Have the very best of holidays, and a very happy new year.

  1. And a great holiday to you and your family and friends as well!! Your excellent work and curation has made this site one of my “absolute must go to” sites; I count on this blog to expand my horizons a bit, as well as delighting my existing tastes. You do a great job. Go and rest, relax, have a brew or seven. I look forward to your reemergence next year!

  2. Happiest of holidays to you also. Thank you so very much for your kindness and time in making these treasures available to us. You are a very good person and much appreciated always.

    I can’t tell you what a blessing you and the site has been to me.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and all.

  7. Dear themidnightcafe.org

    Sir, I do not know your name and can only address you thus. Your posts of Grateful Dead, up to and including 1978, are devoured by me the instant you post them. Thank you.

    I repeat a wish I had sent a lover

    “May The New Year Find You
    Living Loving & Laughing!”

    And may you find new Grateful Dead stuff to post!

  9. Everyone else has said it so well…Thank you Mat for an amazing year of sharing the best tunes around. Joining this community has been a wonderful experience and I look forward to more of the same in 2017. Enjoy the well deserved break and have a great holiday season!

  10. Thank you so very much for all the kind words. It warms this old man’s bootleg lovin’ heart. Sometimes it seems very lonely sending all this stuff out into the internet not knowing who is reading/downloading/listening to it. Your comments are like little beacons of light letting me know all my work serves a purpose.

    Its one of those things where I don’t post all this stuff in order to get hits or comments or whatever, but it sure is nice when they come.

    Thanks again.
