Bridge School Series: #5 – October 20, 1996
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: June 1st, 2020
Hi Patrons! Sorry this took a little bit longer to go out this week as we mentioned in the weekly episode that it would be out on Thursday, but with the recent events happening in the US we were a little bit distracted and figured it was more important to focus on those events rather than ones of our own. But we promised one episode a month and we snuck it in 4 (EST) hours before we hit June so at least we hit our quota.
If you checked out our last Bridge School episode, it was the 1996 night 1 show featuring the alternate Corduroy and great versions of Off He Goes and Sometimes. The night 2 setlist is much of the same, but with one huge topic that has basically been a long-form talking point since this show started.
We get the first bluesy (ahem, “riffy”) intro of Porch. We’ll talk about how its origins tie in with something The Who used to do and why it might’ve stuck around in latter years of the band’s performances. We’ll also spend time on the hand written setlist which curiously looks like a certain font that was printed on the newest album.
