Dean Delray's LET THERE BE TALK

Today on episode #580 my guest is Gary Numan a Legend and Pioneer in Electronic Music.

In the 70's I heard Gary Numan, Devo and Kraftwerk and it completely changed my life. Of course I was into Rock n Roll but Gary opened my eyes and ears to Art. This music helped me explore all types of musical styles and really shaped who I am now.

Gary has a new record coming out in May called Intruder and I cannot recommend it enough. Also go back and listen to some of his newer music from the last 20 years. Albums like Savage, and Splinter will blow your mind.

Thanks for tuning in and have a great week.

Today on a brand new episode of Let There Be Talk my guest is the fantastic Singer Songwriter from Texas Mr Koe Wetzel.

Over the last 9 years this man has built a huge following by non stop touring and recording. He completely built this machine on his own and now with a major record deal on Columbia Records he is about to go to another level.

I have been rocking his new record Sellout non stop since I got it.

Some smoking songs on this LP like Crying From The Bath Room, Sidechick, Drug Problem and Outcast. Radio needs to wake up and start playing these Hit Songs because America needs to hear them today.

Buy Koe's record and follow him on all social media.

Today my guest is a new artist out of Chicago by the name of Neal Francis.

This mans debut record Changes came out in 2019 and it is absolutely incredible.

Not only is Neal a great singer, songwriter his B3 playing is through the roof.

I really think Neal is going to make some serious noise once he can get back out on the road and play live.

Do yourself a favor and check out his music and follow him on Instagram.

Monday Jan,11th 2021 I woke up to some awful news that the great Jeff Scott, Comedy Store Piano player had passed away.

This is a massive loss to our Comedy Store Family and Friends.

I will never forget his great laugh and spirit behind the keyboards every night in the Original Room.

7 1/2 years ago he was a guest on my podcast and had some incredible stories that I feel should be shared again today.

RIP Jeff Scott I will never forget you.

Today I sit down with R. J. Cutler director of the new John Belushi documentary on Showtime called Belushi out right now.

R. J. has made a fantastic film about John that really blew me away and after watching it I knew I had to talk to him right away.

John Belushi has always had a special place in my heart and is part of the reason why I do Stand Up Comedy. When I was very young I would stay up late and watch SNL and John would completely Blow My Mind.

R. J.  has done some amazing work over the years and in February 2021 he will be debuting his new Billie Eilish documentary on Apple TV.

Thanks for tuning in today and Happy New Year Delraisers.
