Book Hour: “JAMerica: The History of the Jam Band and Festival Scene” with author Peter Conners


Author Peter Conners has developed a book almost entirely of the words and interviews of jam band musicians, promoters, and fans. You can hear the other-worldly comments of Mickey Hart of Grateful Dead, the gracious taping policies from Phish, and the musical insights from performers like Bela Fleck and John Poppers of Spin Doctors. I never knew this music genre or culture but the conversation with Mr.Conners opened my ears to complex styles incorporating the entire musical spectrum.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
