Episode 64: Sound Check

Listen to Episode 64

Check Check … 1 … 2. 1 … 2.

This week on the podcast we talked about one event that goes down before every show, even though most of us will never hear it: the sound check. And while the main reason for a sound check is technical necessity, the band has on many occasions used this time to do everything from joke around with each other to straight up melt faces. Of course, covering thirty years of sound checks is nearly impossible, even considering that many never reach the public’s ears. But from what is available, Josh, Brian Feller, and I hit you with some of our favorites and discussed the state of sound checks past, present, and future. Did we miss one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments section below.

Thanks for listening. We will be back in two weeks with “March Madness.”

From the Hose 2: Love is in the Air

Listen to From the Hose : Love is in the Air

First off, let me be clear that this NOT actually a regular episode of type 2. Instead, you have a “mix tape” to make your subscription bountiful in the absence of a new episode. I did this once before, back in the fall of 2011 for Thanksgiving, and apparently haven’t had the time for another installment since. That said, I’ll give you the loose premise as to what’s contained within. I’m calling this a Valentine’s Day mix, hence the “Love is in the Air” title. Yet there are no romantic lyrics, soulful beats, or other traditional staples of a VDay playlist. But if you’re reading this, you probably don’t want that anyway. What you do want is just over 90 minutes of face melting jams that will slip away into the distance as you occupy your time with that someone special. Hope this kicks up your date night a few extra notches, and if it does, please leave a comment below.

Thanks for listening,



Episode 63: 2013 Wish List

Listen to Episode 63

For this week’s show I wanted to talk about 2013, the 30th anniversary of Phish. Many of us are expecting a huge touring calendar with holiday runs and festivals as far as the eye can see.  And while anyone’s guess is as good as the next as to what will actually take place, I thought it would be fun to kill some time day dreaming about what we would like to see. Joining me on this ride are past guest / HT contributor Parker Harrington and first time Type II’er Adam Icculus. We touch on just about every aspect of what could be in 2013, including venues, types of jams, bust-outs, covers, and even the webcasts. As usual, we weave in some choice clips throughout the episode that will leave you salivating for more.

What would you like to see in 2013? Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook page.

Thanks for listening,
