"Just when I think I'm out, you pull me back in."

Dan does the show in front of a crowd at Bridgeset Sound as part of the 5th Annual Philly Podcast Fest. On deck is Drew Mercadante, electronic musician, composer, producer, and all out schmoozer. Following Drew is Bruno Catrambone of Former Belle and Cruisr, talking about his new music, his touring, and the ever-present struggle of being onstage. Huge thanks to the Philly Podcast Fest organizers, Bridgeset Sound, the guests, and the outstanding audience.

This week, I’m beyond excited to put out my first live podcast ever. It was such a blast to do. There are a lot of emotions. Mostly relief. Is relief an emotion? It is for me. It means an end to whatever thing was making me anxious/frantic/hard to be around. It was a huge weight off of me to get this thing done, and to know that everything was going to be fine.


I am by no means a stranger to performing in front of others. I’ve been a musician for most of my life, and being in front of people, even alone, does not really phase me anymore. Without the...

Happy continuing summer season to all! We're all still here. We haven't melted into a puddle. We haven't been eaten by sharks, bears, um... moose... and... um... other things you may encounter during summer.


First off, some important dates:


-August 29th and September 5th. I'll be doing live tapings of the show for the Philly Podcast Festival at Bridgeset Sound, at 710 South Street. 8/29 will feature Drew Harris of The Naked Sun, Wilmington singer-songwriter Rachel Schain, and Benjamin Hughes, whom you might remember from Episode 12, and who keeps put...

Happy 20th episode, everyone!


I’ve finally finished the new home of 25 O’Clock, which is my basement. It’s actually pretty nice, and I’ll put up pics soon of the new secret lair. To tell the truth, I don’t think I’ve had everything all out and functioning in... well... ever. I’ve been acquiring gear and equipment for various purposes over the last 15 years or so, and I’ve finally got a place for all of it. It is immensely satisfying. 


On the show this week is Joe Reinhart. Joe runs The Headroom, a studio here in Philadelphia. He’s also in Dogs On Acid...

It's Episode 10!!! Woohooo!!!! It's a number that we can all feel good about. Thank you to all who have been listening, I'm happy to have put out 10 whole episodes, and happy to put out even more. When I first started this thing, I wasn't thinking about the tenth episode, or even the second. i was just thinking about the first one, and how to put that one together and put it out there. And then I focused on the second one. And so on. And here we are.


I have really no other remarks prepared for 10 episodes. To tell you the truth, it kind of snuck up on...

Things are moving along here in 25 O'Clock land. I continue to be happy with the feedback I get about the show, and I thank you all for listening. I am proud to announce that there has been a steady increase in downloads from week to week. I will not delve into exact numbers, but an increase is an increase, and nothing happens overnight and so on and so on. Thanks for all of you who download, stream, listen, engage and share feedback. 


This week's guest, Bill Platt, came about in an odd way. After I talked with Steve Harner (Episode 2), we were cha...

And we've made it to Episode 2! That's exciting, right? Two episodes is the most episodes of a podcast I have ever done, so it is exciting to me. I can't tell you the number of people I know who decided to do a podcast, made one episode, and then never made another one. The simple fact that I have done two indicates, to myself, that I have even a semblance of consistency about this. High five to myself.


This week, I talk to Steve Harner. Who is Steve Harner, you ask? He is the owner and master of Bridegset Sound in Philadelphia. Bridgeset is a stor...
