HERE WE GO!!
Start the New Year right with Dale Radio Live at the 2015 NYC Podfest. Dale is thrilled to be featured once again in NYC’s only podcast festival and is happily kicking off Day 2 of the fest with a fantastic lineup of people probably just stumbling in from brunch. Tickets are $5 for a show packed with talent. So save the date, buy tickets in advance via this link, and plan to come down to the basement at Fontana’s Bar on the Lower East Side, 105 Eldridge Street (between Broome and Grand) and we’ll show you a good time. The show is Saturday, January 10th at 1pm. Music by Steve O’Reilly.
