Dean Delray's LET THERE BE TALK

Today on Let There Be Talk I am featuring a brand new artist Kate Vargas.

A few months ago my good friend Eric McFadden turned me on to this record called Rumpumpo by Kate Vargas and I was blown away. I knew I had to have her on the show and dig into her journey.

From growing up in a small artist community in New Mexico to going to Berklee College of Music to grinding it out in the Coffee Shop Open Mics in NYC, It's all here.

I am always fired up when I can turn people on to new music so do yourself a favor and check out her records after hearing this episode and help spread the word.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK

Today I sit down with another San Francisco Bay Area legend Mr Fee Waybill of The Tubes.

Growing up in the 70's in the Bay Area I was lucky to see some incredible live music. 1 band that really blew my young mind was The Tubes. The first time I saw them I couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing. White Punks on Dope was a San Francisco Anthem and I was on board.

Over the years I would go on to see this band many times and I was always fascinated with the lead singer Fee Waybill. He is such an electric frontman and I feel like this band is massively underrated.

Do yourself a favor and dive into their music. Start with my favorite record Remote Control.

Go see The Tubes live this summer.

Today I sit down in the box office of one of the greatest Rock n Roll venues in America the Cow Palace located in San Francisco.

I recently was up in the Bay Area doing some Stand Up Comedy and Andrew Shreve reached out and said he works at the Cow Palace and asked if I would like to come take a tour and maybe do a podcast in the venue. I screamed YES YES YES and headed over to the venue for a full on tour of the very building that gave me all my Rock n Roll memories. 

I know the building inside and out but to be able to sit down and hear the History from Andrew and Jeff Ewald was next level.

Everyone has that classic memory of some great concert they went to but take a second and think about the venue. So many of these classic venues are gone now unfortunately. The stories the Cow Palace walls could tell would be insane.

Jeff and I sat down in the legendary Box Office of the Cow Palace surrounded by a who's who of Autographs on the walls and dove into the history of this incredible Venue.

This was a dream come true and they even had my name on the Marque. 

I hope you guys enjoy this little piece or rock history.

Today I sit down with Bay Area legend Jack Blades of Night Ranger and dive deep into his musical history.

Jack has been killing it for years starting all the way back in the 70's in his Rubicon days playing Cal Jam 2.

I was a young kid hanging out at rock clubs in the Bay Area watching bands like Night Ranger, Y&T, Huey Lewis and The News, Eric Martin and Gamma just kill it on stage nightly.

The Bay Area was rich with Music and I was very lucky to grow up in that time period. 

Night Ranger has a new record out this Friday called ATBPO and I highly recommend it. 

Do yourself a favor and go back and listen to all of their records and loose your mind on all their killer songs.

Thanks for tuning in.
