Today I was able to sit down and chat with broadcasting legend "Radio" Rich Dalton. He's been on the St.Louis airwaves nearly 45 years. It was an absolute honor to talk with him and learn a little something about broadcasting and hear some great Rock N Roll stories. Rich tells about being able to see The Who play in '71, playing pinball with Stevie Nicks, and his latest project with OurMusicalRoots.com or TheRoots.fm. You can grab the free app for Our Musical Roots on your Apple or Android device, or stream music through the site 24/7.
Be sure to also catch Rich Dalton withi his band, The Fourth Row at The Sheldon Concert Hall August 28th.

This weekend I was able to catch up with my friend Sally Brooks, who was in town headlining the Valley Park Funny Bone. We talked about her moving to New York soon, some start into comedy, and her album coming out this fall on Rooftop Comedy. I met Sally through past guest and friend of the show Jeremy Essig about 2 years ago, when she was featuring in clubs, since then Sally's career has really been talking off.
