076:November 1995 with Brad Sands
This November, the top 3 Osiris Phish podcasts are focusing on November 1995 - a great era in Phish history. Under the Scales welcomes back Brad Sands who appeared two years ago on Episode 40 in June 2018. Brad and Tom today discuss Phish’s November 1995. Coming after their ambitious cover of The Who’s Quadrophenia for Halloween that year, Phish was off to the races. Their playing was stellar, and their antics were top-shelf Phish. Listen to Brad look back at that era as he relives it show-by-show.

075:This Isn't Happening
Fall 2000 was a tumultuous time — politics were dividing the country, the internet was advancing faster than society could keep up, and the recording industry was undergoing major change. We take another look at this time through the lens of another band, Radiohead. Steven Hyden, author of a great book “This isn’t Happening” about Radiohead’s revolutionary album “Kid A” which came out in October 2000, joins Tom for a discussion which covers Phish, Radiohead and everything in between. This Isn’t Happening can be found here:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/0306845687/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_tSkLFb0QVX3ZZ Steven Hyden co-hosts an Osiris podcast of his own about the Grateful Dead called 36 From the Vault. https://www.osirispod.com/podcasts/36-from-the-vault/
