mike-finoia-still-chasing-16×9

Mike Finoia’s Podcast Series “Still Chasing” chronicles a life dedicated to chasing moments provided by improvisational musicians, particularly the Grateful Dead & Phish. In setting out to tell his own story, Mike reached out to friends, community members, and forefathers of the Jam music scene to discuss what keeps us coming back for more. The following series of interviews were conducted in preparation for the project.

This week’s interview is with David Gans; Grateful Dead historian, musician, & host of Tales from the Golden Road. Gans penned the analogous “Grateful Dead Concerts are like Baseball Games” which perfectly summates the figures found at a concert. The two discuss a life dedicated,  a relationship between audience and performer, and much more.
