    Mikey Wehling

    Mikey Wehling

    Back at last with a fresh episode and a terrific guest, St. Louis picker, Mikey Wehling. Wehling has taken to the dobro in recent years which you can hear on his latest releases, Camp Scout Vol. 1 & 2. We get into that, his days with Messy Jiverson, some classic flat pickers, a bit of Phish, and some good old Grateful Dead.

    Matt Valentine Returns

    Matt Valentine Returns

    We're back again for a new year with a special episode that features the return of Matt Valentine (Wet Tuna, MV & EE) to the podcast. We get kind of out there on this long chat but, along the way, we talk about long form music as a practice, the fiddlyness of envelope filters, and then zoom in on the upcoming Wet Tuna/Dunza split 7" release. Lastly we talk about the one hundred minute mix of MV's music that fills out the rest of this episode. Tune in for the rap, stay for the ride.

    Daniel Bachman

    This episode features a long awaited conversation with Daniel Bachman. Don't fret the early audio issues, we cross that hurdle, skim through a little local Virginia stuff, and get into the making of his latest record "When The Roses Come Again" and so much more. This includes the incredible "Stop MVP" benefit album Daniel helped put together with WarHen records. You can hear all about that, Daniel's background and even a teaser of future music in our chat. Be sure to stick around for some Good Old Grateful Dead!

    Liam Grant

    Liam Grant

    We are back with guest Liam Grant, a fine guitar player and composer int he American Primitive tradition. We discuss his background, his new record, and touring. I also take a minute to discuss a couple recent albums that I've enjoyed and, of course, we've got a dose of Grateful Dead.

    Matt LaJoie

    Matt LaJoie

    On this episode, I am proud to have Matt LaJoie join me to discuss his work as a guitarist, an improviser, and more. We unpack his many projects, dive into his history and that of his label, Flower Room Records and manage to spin a little music along the way. Also in this episode, I shamelessly plug my own upcoming album, and we manage to get a hefty dose of weird and wonderful Grateful Dead.

    Catching Up

    Catching Up

    I've been catching up on so much listening these days that I thought I'd share with you a few choice releases that I've been enjoying from The Jauntee, Dave Heumann, and The Modern Folk Trio Band. Afterwards I pay tribute to the late Robbie Robertson. This all adds up to a set of interesting tunes including a closing medley of Phil & Friends, Jerry Garcia Band, & (of course) Grateful Dead.

Loved being exposed to so much new music

Jonathan’s depth of knowledge about music is impressive and inspiring. Love these conversations with such a diverse group of musicians. I learn so much about all kinds of music and, of course, The Grateful Dead.

Love it!

Jonathan is a great supporter of underground music and his Dead mixes are choice.

Great podcast

Big fan. This guy is a great interviewer of other musicians, and the Grateful Dead choice at the end is the cherry on top.

This guitar player interviewed this month (Nov 2022) has a sound a little bit like Adam Jones from Tool. I’d love to see this guy play with Danny Carey.
