In Episode 086 we take a step back, drink some mulled wine, light a nightly candle, and soak in the vibes of the season. We focus on 12/30’s through the years, highlighting the 1993 run in particular, and discuss the “Mike’s Song” from that year’s 12/30 show. We also discuss the major themes one can expect from the best night of the year for Phish, as well as the standout jams we’ve seen from them over the years.
In addition, we discuss our slow-burn albums of 2019, our favorite Phish shows of the year, and share a playlist of some of our favorite artists playing Holiday classics that are sure to hug you like a glass of gluvine this holiday season.
