William Tyler

 

Greetings Dead Freaks!

I am very pleased to have guitarist William Tyler on the show. We sat down and spoke a few weeks ago about som many things including, starting out in Nashville, his earliest band, joining Lambchop & The Silver Jews, his first solo ventures and some of his latest work. Naturally, we bring it around to Grateful Dead. After the chat, you'll hear a track from the latest release, "Lost Futures", a collaboration with Marisa Anderson. All that is followed by an excellent selection of Grateful Dead.


Marisa Anderson & William Tyler's "Lost Futures" is available, along with most of Tyler's releases, on his Bandcamp page, williamtyler.bandcamp.com, and wherever records are sold. I have all of these records and I sincerely believe that you should too.

The new LP release of PG Six & Louis Bock's "All Summer Long Is Gone" is available now from Feeding Tube Records via feedingtuberecords.com.

Lastly, my own new album, "Slips, Trips, & Falls" out now and available on most digital outlets that don't end in "tify". You can also buy it digitally or grip a physical copy from my bandcamp page, jmhart.bandcamp.com. Thanks.

Scott Ferber


 Greetings Dead Freaks!

Back at last with an interview with Scott Ferber, drummer of The Jauntee, about his new solo album, "Mine Yours & Ours" which comes out June 17. We also talk Jauntee album news and festival dates like their upcoming appearance at Peach Fest. I also (finally) recap my experience at the Three Lobed Recordings 21st Anniversary celebration. The recap includes some audio clips and we also get to hear some of the new material from Scott Ferber, some live Jauntee, and some good old Grateful Dead.

"Mine Yours & Ours" is out June 17 and will be available wherever you get your digital music. Physical copies on Cd & LP as well as other merch and info can all be found at ScottFerberMusic.com. You can keep up with The Jauntee at TheJauntee.com.

The outstanding new Mary Lattimore/Paul Sukeena album, "West Kensington" is out on May 20 and will be available in fine stores as well as on Bandcamp.

Thanks as well to Jonnas Blank for taping at the Three Lobed Fest and sharing the Gunn-Truscinski Duo and Wet Tuna sets via the always wonderful NYCTaper.com. Do consider heading over there to grab those full sets and so much more.

Space Is The Place

 

Greetings Dead Freaks!

On this episode, Bubba Ayoub joins to take us on a journey through Space. Bubba operates the @OTDISpace twitter account, makes synthesizer music, and runs light shows with video synthesis & manipulation and can be found on instagram as @juggableoffense. So buckle up as we launch into the outer limits and shine a light on the weirdest corners of Grateful Dead.

As I mentioned, Bubba makes video art and does production for live shows and webstreams. He kindly made a video for my recent Christmas single which you can see below:

PG Six

 

Greetings Dead Freaks!

In this episode we welcome PG Six (aka  Pat Gubler) to the show to talk about his latest release, "PG Six / Louise Bock - All Summer Long Is Gone". But that's just a sliver of the ground we cover as he's not only an active member of Garcia Peoples and Wet Tuna, but there's more than twenty years of work to discuss! The conversation is augmented and followed by a few selections from his more recent work before I spin a nice slab of Grateful Dead.


"All Summer Long Is Gone" is a duo album billed as PG Six / Louise Bock and is available on cassette from Feeding Tube Records here. The solo, live, album PG Six "Live At the Tavern" is also available from Feeding Tube Records. It's on vinyl as was as a digital download via Bandcamp.

If you're looking for more Wet Tuna, the quickest path to enlightenment is via the Wet Tuna Bandcamp page. The "Eau To A Fake Bookie" physical release that we discuss is available there or go directly to it here. Looking for Garcia Peoples?  They have a bandcamp page too, which features the upcoming album, "Dodging Dues", which is out in early January 2022.

You can find PG Six's releases on Drag City over on that label's artist page, here.

There's no Bandcamp page for the long defunct Tower Recordings but I wish you luck in your journey.
