This week:

Andy P. Smith is a writer, entrepreneur, and marketing consultant who has been attending Phish shows for more than 20 years. He is the Arts Editor at Greenpointers.com, founder of PhanSite.com, and the author of The Last American Gypsy: Chronicles of Phish Tour 2004. His writing has also appeared in JamBase.com, FreeWilliasmburg.com, Quartz, Vice, and The Village Voice.

Andy’s new book, (co-written with Jason Gershuny) is titled 100 Things Phish Fans should know and do before they Die. Andy talks with Kim and Emily about why he loves Phish, his days as a “wookie”, how he manages to balance a relationship while following his passion and offers us some interesting thoughts on the recent media hoax around Kasvot Växt and how WFMU got involved.

I made breakfast sandwiches for Page.
  7:14pm Kate:

all of this is a little fishy.
  7:14pm dez:

I take partial responsibility for this. Kim has been overexposed to too many jam bands since moving in with me
Avatar 7:14pm Cheri Pi:

I'm keeping an open mind, I have one friend who's really into Phish. For you buddy *flick
  7:18pm disco.nap:

  7:19pm Emily:

I do really like phish food. That stuff’s for real.
  7:20pm Emily:

Evening all! Thanks for staying with us!
  7:20pm Emily:

And thanks for keeping an open mind—that’s kind of our whole deal.
  7:22pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Phish is not bad. I mean they pulled off this great prank
  7:22pm Emily:

If this is actually a big prank, I HAVE to respect them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hang on, I'm going to heat up a plate of Phish stix for an IRL snack. BRB
Avatar 7:24pm kimzilla:

I would agree, music aside, Phish is showing some impressive chops with creativity and trying new things. I think that's pretty cool.
  7:24pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

I am wondering when phish will cover Lou reeds metal machine music
  7:29pm Emily:

hahah oh sure. That seems like a no brained.
  7:30pm Emily:

*brainer :/
  7:30pm zpulpa:

Did he just say all this verbatim ???!!
Avatar 7:31pm kimzilla:

@zpulpa- Who Nate? Yes. Read from his Twitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm steveo:

This is fun.
Avatar 7:32pm Fredericks:

In this time of "Fake News" and Russian trolls, I question the timing.
  7:32pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

It seemed the interview looped for me
  7:32pm zpulpa:

Oh I understand! I thought I was loosing my marbles!! I think this is great!! Go phish and wfmu snobbery! Phish is seeming endearing in a new way to me. Sort of envious of the fandom! Haha
Avatar 7:33pm Fredericks:

The larger joke may be Phish?
  7:33pm Kate:

wfmu is trusted as an authority? dude, I'm shocked.
  7:33pm yes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm dave wuz here:

  7:34pm Marc15:

Phiddler On The Roof?
  7:34pm dez:

Fiddler on the roof analysis for your next episode!!!!
  7:34pm zpulpa:

Station manager ken seems to be playing a key role....
  7:34pm Kate:

Emily Curran! you remembered FOTR!!
  7:35pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Kate are you a Russian troll?
  7:35pm Kate:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm melinda:

I like the part in the Beware of the Blog post that says a few FMU DJs went through Swedish country phases.
  7:37pm Emily:

@melinda Hahahaha oh that’s good
Avatar 7:37pm kimzilla:

@zpula, oooh, Ken, yes, he might know more than he is letting on to. I'd also pay attention to Jesse Jarnow to hear what he might know. It's deep man, it's deep.
  7:38pm dez:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm steveo:

Melinda, that part's probably true
  7:38pm yes:

it was the garbage man
Avatar 7:39pm kimzilla:

Do Phish Phans do this all the time, cause that would be Phabulous!
  7:39pm Emily:

I mean, I would...
  7:39pm zpulpa:

Let’s ask Matt Warwick!!
  7:40pm The Butterman:

I'm hardcore deadhead/WFMU head. Phish is a once a year thing. Love their jamming. Song lyrics are mostly silly. Early Phish =good they shoulda stopped writing songs in 1996
  7:40pm Rusty Tiki:

Phish fans love the Dead cause that’s where Phish came from. Dead fans don’t like Phish cause they’re trying to rid the coat tails.
  7:40pm Kate:

geez phlouise! 60 phucking shows!
Avatar 7:40pm kimzilla:

Nice, @Kasot Vaxt just followed me on Twitter! This is so phun!
  7:40pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

We should get Dave Emory on this. I mean I'm sure they are controlled by fascists
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe a future IRL can compare & contrast Phish Phans with Juggalos.
  7:42pm Kate:

@ Aaron did you mean phascists?
  7:42pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

  7:43pm Emily:

@ Ken from HP I do wanna talk to juggalos!
  7:43pm Kate:

@ Aaron, you are my favorite.
Avatar 7:45pm Cheri Pi:

I know that miracle can be used as a verb, in a mean joke
  7:45pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

You are my seventh favorite @kate
  7:46pm Kate:

@Aaron YES! I'm up in the standings!! weedoggies!
Avatar 7:47pm kimzilla:
