In January of 2013 Grateful Dead guitarist premiered a talk show dubbed “Weir Here” live from his TRI Studios compound in Marin County. Weir’s guest for the first episode of Weir Here was Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, who celebrates a birthday today.

Moan,” “Me And My Uncle,” “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl,” “West L.A. Fadeaway,” “Most Of The Time” and a rousing “Dark Star” > “The Other One sequence. Along the way, the pair chats and at points are joined by Steve Parish and John Perry Barlow.
