Stern was on vacation

I was looking for something to listen to and remembered Marky who I went to the tour ending Alpine show 2019 with said I would like this. He was right! I always heard Dean was on the outs after making money from his book in 96? Guess you cannot believe what you read on the internet. Lots of great stories from the band and even more from the staff. Over the years having chance meetings with many of these folks it brought back very fond memories. Thank you Dean and the team for making this. I really needed a smile and you provided many.

Hold up. This is no longer about Phish?

First season was pretty good. Been a fan since 92.
But that was it? New season is about the NRA? That was tricky

LOVE THIS PODCAST!!

This podcast is great! It’s so much fun getting a peak behind the curtain, and I love the avenues the podcast walks down. I’ve learned so much about the band and even fun facts about shows I attended. Loving every minute of it!
