We're taking a quick break from our usual thing. This week, The Legendary Dobb's closed its doors for good. This comes right on the tail of the North Star Bar discontinuing live music as well. So Dan chats with a few of his Philly music colleagues about what they think about all this: Is the Philly scene in trouble? What did they think about Dobb's in general? How do we keep things happening? For Philly music folk, this is close to home. For anyone else, it's a unique glimpse into the Philly music scene. Hope you all enjoy!
Dan helps Drew celebrate his 30th birthday with a career spanning chat about this amazing jazz musician. From Drew's early obsessions with Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong, to getting schooled as a pianist and trumpeter, to working on an old-time steamboat, to managing his own career as the most in-demand Jazz-era bandleaders in the area, we cover it all. Plus, he plays the piano like a madman! Live on the show! How cool is that?
