Once Again Katy Tur & Jake Sherman Exchange Phish References On MSNBC


Nearly every time Politico’s Jake Sherman appears as a guest on host Katy Tur’s MSNBC program, the pair of Phish-loving journalists work in mention of the band’s lyrics. The trend continued yesterday, when Sherman and Tur fit lyrics from a pair of the foursome’s live staples into a segment on protestors in Washington, D.C.

As @PhishAtMSG points out, the exchange begins around the 2:30 mark in the video below. Jake makes the first move by quoting Phish’s “Mike’s Song” as he states “it seems like they’re trapped in time and don’t know what to do.” Katy is quick on the uptake and her response includes lyrics from “Tube.” Tur’s follow-up to Sherman contains “it’s not so stupendous living in that tube.”

Here’s how it went down:

Katy and Jake first volleyed titles of Phish songs back in March and did so again on June 6 and June 21. Hopefully the pair find time to attend at least a few shows on the Vermont jam quartet’s upcoming tour, which begins in Chicago on Friday night.

We don’t currently have any upcoming shows for Phish.
