Lisa Schaffer has been to more shows than you have, for sure. Dan talks to the hardest working photographer in the Philly music community about her love of music, records, live shows, and how seeing Philly artists like Ben Arnold and Hezekiah Jones in the early 00s put her on her path. She's also an accomplished vinyl DJ, so we talk records, how she ended up working in a record store in her 40s, where to start with legacy artists, her daughter's obsession with Eartha Kitt, and so much more. Check out Lisa's extensive portfolio on her website, and follow her on IG to find out where she's spinning next.

Dan talks with Autumn Luz about "starting late" as a musician, using the pandemic as a jumping off point where she gave herself permission to make music, her love of ballet and dance, working with Philly producer Sam Rosen and bassist Mitch Beer, and finding her collaborator, Sam Esquith, who joins us in the conversation. We talk dark, moody vibes, digital collaboration, and the joy of finally putting it all together in person. Autumn has two singles out curently with videos, "Heat" and "Speed"available at her website and wherever you get digital music.

The EP is available via Giving Groove records, with all the profits going to Rock To The Future.

We're back! It's been a useful and productive month off, and we're back to bring you all the Philadelphia music goodness we can. This week, Dan talks with Jon Houlon of John Train and The Donuts. Dan and Jon discuss the new John Train LP, 'Cowboy Dreams' and it's ties to the Philadelphia horseback riding community, John Train's residency at Fergie's Pub (every Friday from now til March 31st), a mutual love for guys like Tommy Keane and Elvis Costello, and how to make your bands last for 20+ years. Jon plays a couple of tunes live in the studio, an element of this show we're excited to see return. 'Cowboy Dreams' is available wherever you get digital music, and you can score a copy of the vinyl release from John Train's website, as well as select record stores in the Philadelphia area.
