Quick Hit: Phish @ Wrigley Field, 6/24/16

Photo: Brian Brinkman!
Here's a Quick Hit from Wrigley Field night 1, with our good friend Brian Brinkman. As a lifelong Cubs fan born and raised in Chicago, this was a huge night for Brian. We're glad he was able to share it with us.

We've included a clip from the Twist from last night, which really just shows how nimble the band is, with their ability to "turn on a dime" in the middle of a jam, as Brian said.

Quick Hit: Phish @ Xcel Energy Center, 6/22/16

For this tour, we're going to bring you a "quick hit" from each show -- a brief discussion and clip from the show -- and put them up by the next afternoon. Today we're chatting briefly about the show from last night in St. Paul, MN.

We've included a clip from the Wolfman's Brother, as we feel like that captures the sound well. But this overall was a nice tour opener, and of course we're looking forward to more.

Episode 83: Top 15 Summer Jams!

This week, we have our most ambitious podcast undertaking to date, done in partnership with our guest Justin Bruce. We compiled about 50 Phish Summer jams from across the eras, then asked people to vote on their top 15 jams. The results are in! This episode will feature the top 15 Phish Summer jams, as voted on by YOU!

The format is a bit different: We count down the 15 jams a few at a time, and discuss in between. We encourage you to listen to the show all the way through to hear the countdown, but if you absolutely must know, you can click this link to see the list and how the timing breaks down. But we would encourage you to NOT do that and listen to the way it unfolds for your ears. (If you want to download the mp3 of the episode directly, click here.)

As we're approaching tour, be sure to get your Summer Tour opener guess in!

Also, you can still take our quick survey about how we can improve the podcast. Also, review us on iTunes, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
