Welcome to the 356th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the third and final of December. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the three mystery clips. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, a hint will be posted. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Note: Given the holiday weekend next week as well as the New Year's Eve holiday (and Phish shows!) two weeks from now, this will be the final Mystery Jam Monday of 2018. In its stead, I am working to try and churn out some work for my From The Tapers' Section series between bouts of penning my doctoral thesis - obviously time is tight, but I hope to get some tasty tapes into your hands before the year ends. So I recommend that all of you continue to check in during the next two weeks, but in the meantime take a break from the competition and enjoy the time spent with friends, families, and a chance to ring in another new year at MSG! Best of luck on this MJM, and see you in 2019 with some fresh puzzles and clips.

Answer: Congrats to @shelfofpregnanthens, the sixth MJMer in the past nine MJMs to take down their third win! If the past two months of this year are any indication, the MJM Hall of Fame will continue to grow in 2019. @shelfofpregnanthens figured out the hint almost immediately, realizing that a picture of a baby seal was a nod to blues legend Frank "Son" Seals, who sat in with Phish on multiple occassions, including the dates of this week's jams: 7/10/97 "Bathtub Gin," 7/17/99 "Timber (Jerry)," and 10/3/99 "David Bowie." Come back on January 7th, 2019 for MJM357: Magnum Edition, and have a blast at MSG for NYE. And remember: don't do anything we wouldn't do!

ucpete Thanks for all your hard work @wforwumbo – I think I speak for most of us when I say you've done a commendable job handling the week-to-week operations, and once again you've crafted a tricky MJM featuring some fantastic audience recordings.

For 2019, while wumbo will remain your primary MJM Host (and audio wizard), we do hope to more formally recruit the MJM Emeriti to help with jam selection and puzzle crafting (@lostboy01, you're up next!). This will not only ensure that we maintain and build a cache of dope jams for deployment at any time, but will also give those veterans with an eye on the Hall of Fame some motivation to close the deal, while also ensuring the MJM's viability for years to come.

Happy holidays everyone!
