Jam fans watching MSNBC talk show Morning Joe this morning may have been surprised to hear discussion turn to jam acts including Phish, the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic. The talk started when host Joe Scarborough brought up the love of Phish from panelist Bob Costa of The Washington Post.

Scarborough mentioned Costa would regale co-anchor Willie Geist with tales of attending two of last week’s Phish shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Geist joked, “he smelled like patchouli every morning,” while Costa responded, “Willie was playing ‘Fluffhead’ in between the segments.” The panel went on to briefly discuss the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic before taking a tangent to talk about Crash Test Dummies. Joe Scarborough told the panel, “I’m not one of these jamband guys. I want fast songs that are a minute and a half.” Geist then brought up “Fluffhead” again as the segment ended. Watch how it went down thanks to Icculus The Prophet:
