Ryan H. Walsh, author of the new book Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968 & singer of the band Hallelujah The Hills is back on the show. Last time he was here he was writing this book and now it's out! The book is a fascinating examination of the arts and culture scene of Boston in 1968 and Van Morrison's time there before he recorded Astral Weeks. We talk all about his extensive research and writing process, his book tour, the letters he received from Jonathan Richman, a couple legendary Boston figures like Mel Lyman, and the enigma that is Van Morrison's beautiful album Astral Weeks. We also talk about his band, Twin Peaks The Return, his recent appearance on Never Not Funny, David Crosby not knowing who Stephen Malkmus is and much more!
