Our guest for episode 14 is the musician Jason Lytle. Jason made his name as the frontman of Grandaddy, and it was with that band that he met Elliott Smith for the first time. Grandaddy had just released their second album, The Sophtware Slump, while Elliott had recently put out Figure 8, and they had been lined up to tour together.
In this interview, Jason discusses the moment he met Elliott for the first time, how their friendship developed and, of course, his favourite song.
We loved hearing Jason's stories, so we hope you enjoy this interview too.
