Mangria Moment

Adam is describing how quietly rich the guys in Phish must be, Adam is talking about the 9k he walks with after a live show, and he doesn’t get how huge productions like Santana make money, but 4 guys with 18k people in the audience, which makes sense money wise.


Dawson is now playing some Phish and says this is probably their biggest hit, Adam is unfamiliar with it.

Dawson is sharing his experience in radio, Adam is trying to make it clear he means radio hit, not played on a radio station Dawson worked at.

Adam is now riffing about missing the show where the cool thing happened, Adam makes it clear he’s now hating on Phish and says it’s more akin to Dane Cook selling out Madison Square Garden, Adam doesn’t get how they got such a fan base.


Adam says it’s just non-special 4 guys jamming, Dawson is explaining the Phish pirate ship and Mari is now back on the line sharing her experience.

Adam tips his cap to her and they wrap up the segment.
