Friends! Our energies shall become one! Join Dale for this new chapter in his life and the first episode of our ninth season. We at Dale HQ are beyond excited to see Dale sit down with his fantastic guests. He’s talking to people who identify with various nighttime spirits: mountain pairs, moths, comets, and raging campfires. With the otherworldly accompaniment from theremin virtuoso, Cornelius Loy, Dale welcomes storyteller, author and podcast host, Dan Kennedy; theater director, Rachel Chavkin; comedian and performer Rosebud Baker; and legendary NY singer and actor, Julee Cruise (Twin Peaks)! We’ll also be visited by James Habacker, the impresario in charge of The Slipper Room!

Now some video clips that give a sense of Dale’s guests and their work:
Julee Cruise has lent her voice and skills as a character actor to many fine productions. Dale promises not to only focus on one of his favorites, that of the Roadhouse Singer from Twin Peaks, but he did have many wonderful evenings playing this song through his car stereo while looking at the stars and then getting very scared of the dark. You remember this one:
Dan Kennedy is a master storyteller and writer. He’s the host of numerous MOTH live slams and events around the country as well as the host of the acclaimed MOTH Podcast. Dale recommends subscribing to that show if you haven’t already. Lots of great stories and a fine way to make your commute more enjoyable. Here’s a story from Dan that Dale is fond of:
Rachel Chavkin is the artistic director of the theater collective TEAM. In that role she’s created many outstanding new works for the stage. One of those projects, Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, was championed and developed with the help of our friends at Ars Nova in NYC and is now about to make its Broadway debut. Here’s a very informative look at the show:
Comedian Rosebud Baker is a favorite of Dale’s, since she also happens to be among the more mystically-minded in the comedy circuit. She can read the heck out of a deck of tarot cards and is sure to teach Dale a thing or two about the spirit realm. She’s also a co-host of the Netflix Campfire podcast. Here’s a stand up set from earlier this year:
And our band leader for the evening – and band for that matter, is the talented virtuoso of the theremin, Cornelius Loy. Here’s Loy demonstrating the wonderful instrument that Dale is wild for:
