Squeeee! The new season is upon us and thanks to Bill Scurry we’ve got some fresh new HD video of the entire show up on YouTube and over on our video page. We had a terrific time over at The PIT in NYC and launched an exciting new season. Look how excited Dale is in that picture. So excited. And maybe scared. Definitely in need of a belt. Anyway – please check out the great interview segments with guests Dana Rossi, Jonah Bayer, Veronica Osorio, and Robert Dean. They are all amazing people and we had a good time together.

Next live show is Weds, October 29th at 8pm with Dale’s guests: Josh Gondelman, Janelle James, Amber Nelson, and Leslie Goshko!! I mean…I can’t even!

Here’s Dale’s monologue featuring a direct address to his alien overlords, illustrator Louie Chin, and a terrific game of I Mean…I Can’t Even!:

Dale lets loose in an all new episode marking the beginning of the seventh sensational season of Dale Radio! Recorded live at NYC’s The PIT, the show features Dana Rossi, Jonah Bayer, Veronica Osorio and Robert Dean. Dale secretly hopes to hang out with all of them as he discusses classic Beach Boy hits, Stevie Nicks jazz solos, the lure of juggling teens, diamond planets, and the sad reality of Tony Danza.

Thanks to everyone who came out – including Musical Director, Steve O’Reilly and illustrator, Louie Chin. Be sure and rate and review the program on iTunes, follow Dale on SoundCloud, or listen on Stitcher Radio.

Folks- tonight is the night. And here’s the latest latest. We’ve done a little (okay a lot) of switcheroo-ing to the lineup for the amazing season 7 premiere of Dale Radio. I’m over the moon excited to welcome gifted stand up comedian Robert Dean ; improviser/creator of great characters, Veronica Osorio; along with my favorite storytelling pal, the incomparable, Dana Rossi, founder of the Soundtrack Series. These two talented folks are joining the already announced awesomeness of musician/podcaster/journalist/co-creator of the web-series Sound Advice, Jonah Bayer. Jonah is my rock, ladies and gentlemen.

Sheng Wang. Doing his thing. Talkin’ vultures:

Here’s a clip from a few years back of Alison Agosti guesting on James Urbaniak’s Chat Show. They talk about Millennials. What are they?! They sound scary!

You can hear Jonah Bayer on the music podcast, Going Off Track. Jonah also recently teamed up with his sister to co-create Sound Advice, with media coach Janessa Slater. She’s got a lot of great ideas!! Here’s an episode wherein she gives some advice to those lovable twin Canucks, Tegan and Sara.

Oh, and what about our friend Blaise Allysen Kearsley? She just had a birthday. Here’s a story about discovery:

So much talent!

Everything Is Falling Into Place

Two weeks from now, Dale takes the stage for an all-new season of Dale Radio. We want to see you there. So we made a poster. We asked our friend, singer & designer Clare Prowse, who resides up in Dale’s ancestral home of Canada, to design a cool new poster for the season premiere and we are excited to debut it here for you, our dearest fans:

Hotsy, Totsy, willya lookit that fella! And look at that lineup! This show has it all, Rock N’ Roll, Late Night TV, Danger! Get those tickets and RSVP on the Facebook wall and catch up on past episodes on SoundCloud – it’s going to be an amazing start to an amazing season. There are so many great people lined up to do the shows this season, we want to tell you about it, but that would ruin the surprise. For now, let’s just plan on being together Weds, September 24th at 8pm at The People’s Improv Theater, 123 E. 24th Street, NYC. More details available here: http://thepit-nyc.com/event/dale-radio-live-4/.

Dale Soars Into the Cloud

Let the eagle soar!

Let the eagle soar!

Don’t worry – you won’t find any nude pictures of Dale on this Cloud. He keeps those sealed in a Chock Full O’ Nuts coffee can under his boxspring. (Don’t tell the hackers!) Instead if you jump over to Dale’s redone SoundCloud page soundcloud.com/daleradio, you’ll find all the great interviews of the most recent season, plus a few choice episodes from Seasons 1-5. We’ll be adding to that section as we go along, but for now we have to give our upload tubes a rest.

If you are a SoundCloud listener, please consider giving Dale a follow. That means you can now get Dale through Stitcher Radio, SoundCloud, iTunes, and right here at Dale HQ. The new season will be available in all locations as well – so you’ll NEVER MISS AN EPISODE!!

As always, we think the best way to experience Dale is live and in person, so get those tickets for the live season premiere, with guests Sheng Wang, Jonah Bayer, Alison Agosti, and Blaise Allysen Kearsley. The show also features Emily Danger and music by Steve O’Reilly! Ticket link is here: http://thepit-nyc.com/event/dale-radio-live-4/.

We’ve got a lot in store for the new season! Stay tuned!

We’ll post some additional info about our guests next week, but how about we learn a little something about the amazing artists who are defining the look and sound of Season 7.

First up, Louie Chin. Dale found Louie online and commissioned a new podcast icon for the season. This is the image that you’ll see on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and in your RSS feeds and maybe on your iphone cases if you’re lucky. A few weeks back we posted about Louie’s process, including some behind-the-scenes drafts of the new image. You can read that here.

As usual, we’ll be debuting our new theme song for the season on the first episode on 9/24. This go round, we asked Season 5 guest, Emily Danger to craft a futuristic, Tonight Show like theme as played by a band in an underground hideout! And boy, did she deliver! Emily will be joining the show for the season premiere to play the theme live! For more on Emily – who has a new album out now called Peace Arch and is playing shows this week at the Mercury Lounge and then in October at The Slipper Room, visit her website, emilydangerband.com.

We’ll feature Louie and Emily on our homepage all season, if you want to check them out.
