Dale Radio Season 7: Dale Asks Four Questions


Dale props the door open for a ghost to join him at supper in this solo episode, where truth be told, he probably asks more than four questions. He also recorded this podcast lying down, so there’s that. As spring finally arrives, Dale reflects on his spiritual beliefs, biblical subway rides, and time traveling mentors. He also offers thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the big show at Joe’s Pub this last week, and offers some thoughts on how to solve the drought in California.

Next Dale Radio Live is Tuesday, April 28th at The PIT in NYC. Come see Dale discuss bed bugs and comedy with Doogie Horner, Mehran Khaghani, Anna Callegari, and science writer (and bed bug expert) Brooke Borel! Dale’s skin is crawling just thinking about this one. Sleep with your eyes open, folks! And get tickets here.

Dale Radio Season 7: Rebecca Vigil


Dale panics in a very slow cab as he makes his way to Astoria for a conversation with comedic improviser and musical talent, Rebecca Vigil. Dale and Rebecca met backstage of the Running Late with Scott Rogowsky program, which as it turns out, is very appropriate given how late Dale was in reaching Rebecca’s apartment. Once inside and from the comfort of her couch, the two discuss winning big, auto-correcting one’s life choices, and the joys of temporary employment.

Don’t miss Rebecca in her improvised musical at The PIT, April 28th. But if you do miss it, that’s probably because you were seeing Dale Radio Live on the same night in the basement of the same place. NYC! So full of excitement. And also – don’t forget to check out Dale’s tribute to Lawrence Welk, Wunnerful Wunnerful! at Joe’s Pub on Saturday, April 11th at 9:30. Get tickets in advance for the best seats via this link.

Dale Radio Season 7: Reformed Whores


Dale goes in the backdoor (and up five flights of wooden stairs) to reach the comedy boudoir of musical duo, Reformed Whores. Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame welcome Dale to spread out on their spacious couch next to a sweet and slumbering pussy. The trio have a steamy exchange that covers slippery bathroom floors, wild late night calls, intimate meetings in Los Angeles, and the delicate exploration of one’s instrument. Listeners may need a shower and a smoke after this one!

Reformed Whores join Dale on April 11th at Joe’s Pub in NYC for Wunnerful Wunnerful!, a show that pays tribute to the magic and influence of the Lawrence Welk program. Tickets are $20 and some great seats are still available via the Joe’s Pub site, or on The ladies will be playing live as part of the Bad Assery Women & Comedy Conference at the Bell House – with many friends of this program – in Brooklyn, so check listings for that. The Whores’ album Ladies Don’t Spit is available on itunes, or wherever you find great music and their second album will be out later this year.

Dale Radio Season 7: Dale Sees a Hawk


Dale thaws out as spring approaches. A return to the midnight recording sessions of earlier seasons, this episode finds Dale alone in the dark, sharing his thoughts on rising sea levels, classic TV space adventures, art therapy, birds of prey, and two big upcoming live shows. He also dives into the e-dale inbox to respond to some items from eager listeners.

Next Dale Radio Live is Tues, March 24th 8pm at The PIT Underground. Dale’s guests will be Bridget Everett, Joe Randazzo, Nore Davis, and Naomi Ekperigin. Get tickets in advance or at the door, just $10. We’ll have a good time in a basement. As always.

Dale Radio Season 7: Isaac Oliver


Dale wades through a hundred puddles of slush and takes the longest train ride of his life to arrive at the spacious uptown writer’s retreat of humorist, playwright, and performer Isaac Oliver. Over some freshly brewed coffee, Dale and Isaac discuss romantic telegrams, haunted residencies, glittery myspace posts, and the unending quest for intimacy. Isaac’s book, Intimacy Idiot comes out in June, and it’s surely something you’ll want to be intimate with all summer.

In addition to submitting your pre-orders for Isaac’s book, why not go ahead and secure some tickets for the next Dale Radio Live on Tuesday, March 24th at 8pm at NYC’s The PIT. Dale’s guests will be Bridget Everett, Joe Randazzo, Nore Davis, and Naomi Ekperigin. That is some top flight comedy, folks. Plus – Dale might wear a new tie! Lots to look forward to. Dear snow, please stop!
