Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

On The Air With Bobby Weir

“Okay, I have been informed that we do have a telephone. You can call me at 1-800-BOB-WEIR and, you know: ask me stuff, or tell me things, or maybe just a quick little chit-chat. Like the porch of the general store, but of the mind.

“Anyway, we started this show because first off: I have a natural speaking voice and style for radio. And, you know: I dunno if you’ve seen this studio I built, but there’s so much bullshit in here, and I feel guilty about not using it. Plus, if you don’t use the equipment a certain amount, you don’t get to claim it, tax-wise, so there’s also a bit of financial need.

“I am being told I should not mention that this show was created for the purpose of writing off ten grand worth of antique microphones. Do we have any calls? Great. So: William from Hawaii, you’re on the air. William?”


“I don’t want to do this anymore.

“I am being told that we have two hours and fifty-seven minutes until they will unlock the door and let me out.”

    “I brought 90 of my 100 guitars, how about an extended solo version of Dark Star?”

  2. That # “has been changed, disconnected, or is no longer in service.” I checked the # and tried my call again, but got the same result. I thought at least it would be someone/some places #

  3. Did William actually place the call? Or did Benjamin make it on his behalf……

  4. So, I have learned toll free extns are 1-800, 1-866, 1-877, and 1-888. No answer for Bob-Weir; howeves, 1-877 PigPenn gets you EMO Trans Chicago. 1-800 MickeyH gets you some sort of automated survey, and 1-866 MickeyH gets you Disney.
