Episode 62: YEMSG 2012

Listen to Episode 62

“So you’ve got the four of us tonight. Josh, Chris, and myself were in attendance at MSG for all four nights and Brian did couch tour proper. We have all done our homework, listened back, gave it a few days. You know, the thing with Type II Cast is we can’t put out an episode right after the run. We have to digest, go through the clips, things have to be cut and put on the editing room floor. For tonight’s format, what we are gonna be doing is, we are gonna start off with the whole view of our thoughts on the run in 2012 and deconstruct from there.”  (from the episode’s intro)

Thanks for listening. Happy New Year to all the Type II listeners out there! Stay tuned throughout the off season for a variety of fun topics.

Episode 60: New Year’s Remix

Listen to Episode 60

The type II panel loves New Year’s Shows. So much in fact that, despite a past similar episode, we needed to talk about our favorite moments once again. Drew held down the hosting duties for this episode and was joined by Scott, Josh, and myself. Collectively, the cast has seen every New Year’s run since ’93, which provides countless great moments on a variety of levels. Tonight, we chose 11 clips that the panel considers special. I’m confident there will be a few surprises.

Sit back, relax, and kill an hour reliving some New Year’s moments with us. We hope to see you at MSG next month, but until then, we have one more episode on Y.E.M. in 2 weeks. Stay tuned.

Thanks for listening,

- Steve

Episode 12: It’s Pronounced Man-Tay-Ca

Listen to Episode 12

Type II Cast host Steve Olker and panelists Scott Bernstein, Tanya Sperry and Justin Wendt each had a tough time waiting for two weeks to discuss Phish’s three-night stand at Madison Square Garden, so much so that you can hear the energy in each participant’s voice as they detail the run’s highlights.

Tanya starts us off by recapping the December 30th performance including discussions and listening sessions devoted to the energy at the venue, the unique version of Tweezer and the highly melodic Bathtub Gin thrown down that evening. Scotty explains how the run, and specifically the New Year’s Eve concert, channeled the best of the band’s previous year-ending shows. Clips from the 31st include a machine gun-laden Rock and Roll, a buttery Ghost jam that the panel flipped over and the grand Meatstick – The Musical segment that put an exclamation point on 2010.

Justin led a discussion about the improv-heavy run closer from New Year’s Day. The panelists gave their thoughts on the Walls of a Cave jam, the Crosseyed jam and the gorgeous full-band interplay that developed out of Simple. All four Type IIers summed up their thoughts on the MSG Run before one of the most fun sequence of the three-night stand played us out.

Episode 11: I Drove 5 Hours to Worcester and All I Got Was a Hood.

Listen to Episode 11

Hey everybody and Happy New Year. For our first episode of 2011, we totally broke all the rules. We should have done the show yesterday, but the studio wasn’t cooperating and we had sound problems. Eric Wyman was feeling under the weather and could not make it. Drew had to skype in from Syngapore. And we started the show with a 9 minute clip. Also, we had no show notes going into this episode, which is also a first. A true type II show.

In regards to our review of “Woosta”, we definitely all agreed it had its moments, but overall was choppy and the “phlow” just was not there. Take the title with a grain of salt though, we by no means hated on it, and both Sam and I are glad we made the trip. As you will be able to tell by the clips, we found some gems. A new type of jamming has started to emerge in the 3.0, and these 2 shows were the springboard for what will come at MSG.
