Episode 82: MSG (2013)

Listen to Episode 82


Happy New Year everyone! Type II is back after an en fuego fall tour with our review of the 2013 New Year’s run.  Not surprisingly, we were pretty excited to talk about these four shows, which we considered some of the best four days of Phish in a long time. The ‘we’ I am referring to is myself, Dave Calarco, and Brian Bavosa. I’m sure most of you know the format of the show by now, but for any Type II noobs out there, we walk you through each of the four shows, weaving in clips of our favorite jams with a sprinkle of insight and anecdotes along the way.

Thanks for listening.

Episode 81: Reading > Atlantic City (2013)

Listen to Episode 81


This week on the podcast, panelist Chris Glushko is taking on duties as host.  He is joined by past guest, Steve Paolini and new guest of the program, Tim Wade (aka The Emu). The panel takes us on the wonderful journey that is Reading through Atlantic City.  With many a clip to choose from, Mr. Glushko went conservative and queued up two per show to highlight the panel’s favorite moments. He also queued up a one way ticket to “Rank City.”  So sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy our final review of fall tour.

See you guys at MSG.

Episode 80: Glen Falls > Hartford (2013)

Listen to Episode 80


This week on the program, Adam Scheinberg (past guest and prominent .netter) has been kind enough to host. He is joined by past guest of the program, Parker Harrington, and new guest, Will Rubenstein. The panel has the pleasurable task of reviewing Glens Falls, both Worcester shows, and Hartford. Unfortunately, we don’t enough time to play all the clips we want, but we found the ten best which should not surprise you. So just press play and get to the good stuff already.

Thanks for listening,

PS: Here is Parker’s video of the drummer switch from Worcester 1

Episode 79: Hampton > Rochester (2013)

Listen to Episode 79


As you may have noticed, there’s been a little hiatus since Dick’s, which can be blamed on my non-podcasting life things (i.e. school).  Fortunately, Katie from TWoL was able to pitch in with coordinating the panels and I was able to shift hosting duties temporarily. Kicking this run off, panelist Josh Korin took control as host and was joined by new guest of the show, Troy Laur, and …. myself! We cover the first four shows of tour: Hampton through Rochester. Of course, all basic Type II procedures have been followed: banter, anecdotes, and professional insight mixed with a healthy dose audio clips. For those with short attention spans, here is your spoiler: Woo!

We are covering the final eight shows of tour in two more episodes, which should also be available when you are reading this.  We hope you guys enjoy, thanks for listening.

Episode 78: Dicks (2013)

Link to Episode 78


Summer tour has come to a close and there is never a better way to go out than with some Dick’s. Phish loves Dick’s. Of course I’m referring to the Labor Day weekend tradition of playing three shows in Denver at Dick’s Sporting Goods Arena. As the trend goes, the band uses Friday night to communicate a message to the fans by spelling something with their set list and then throws down the hose the next two nights.

Needless to say, I was excited to make my first pilgrimage there last week. Almost as excited as I am about the panel this week. To review this final run, I am joined by past panelist Tanya Sperry, past guest Pauly McGuire (aka TaoPauly from Coventry Music Blog), and first time guest Scott Marks (aka Biz Archive from Phish.net). And with this lineup, Type II Cast does what only it can do: provide a mixed perspective to review the music and supplement it with a premium selection of tasty audio clips.

I hope you have enjoyed following along with Type II Cast throughout the summer. My thanks and appreciation go out to all of the guests and listeners of the show, and to all of those people who brought good reviews. Unfortunately, it is unclear what, if any, shows we will produce in this short off season, but we will definitely see everyone at Hampton.

Thanks for listening,

-Steve

Episode 77: BGCA > HB (2013)

Listen to Episode 77


And here we find ourselves, wrapping up the last four shows of summer tour proper, just six episodes since Bangor. Joining me tonight are panelist Chris Glushko, and past guests of the show, Steve Paolini and Chris Bertolet. We recorded this one late on Friday evening and we assure you it won’t be without some charm. High praises were spoken of the three day BGCA run with a few songs being notable enough to get ranked. Add to that some fine CK5 work and a stellar Hood at the Bowl and Phish ended summer tour on a very positive note. We squeezed twelve clips into this episode and even at that number many more ended up on the cutting room floor.

We hope you’ve enjoyed following along with Type II Cast this summer and we’re looking forward to Dick’s in just under two weeks. See you guys there.

Episode 76: Tahoe (2013)

Listen to Episode76


This week on the program I am joined by three guests, .netter Brian Feller, and “Rory” and Ben (aka Guy Forget) from Online Phish Tour. On this episode we tackle just two shows, our easiest “load” of the summer. It is nearly impossible to give a proper introduction to the epic Tweezer jam from night two which is easily the highlight of (insert some length of time that you choose). But don’t let the Tweezer overshadow the rest of this stop on tour. In fact, we found quite a few other great clips to showcase.

Stay tuned for our final show of the summer (before Dick’s) when I host Chris Glushko and some TBD guests in wrapping up summer tour with our review of the Bill Graham and Hollywood Bowl shows.

Thanks for listening,

- Steve
