Woody Radio DJ Mike Show #103, 4/11/2020

Dolph Chaney
On today’s show, we got to meet Chicago-based singer-songwriter Dolph Chaney. He only hit my radar several months ago, but his brand new album, “Rebuilding Permit”, should hit yours immediately. Dolph’s been knocking around, making music since he was a teenager, and he’s got a few other records under his belt, but this is his first release, and it’s on the wonderful Big Stir Records label.

Rebuilding Permit is a collection of rockers and quieter songs, and they’re all very personal. Dolph has been through some stuff, but remains optimistic, and that attitude pervades the album. The emotional centerpiece is the song “Broken”. That one gets me every time. A touching song, you realize that Dolph is a survivor, but offers to give you a hand in picking yourself up.

We had a fun, lively chat, and we even talked about Dolph’s appearance on Jeopardy! Give a listen for yourself, and while you’re at it, learn more about Dolph at https://dolphchaney.com/. And–if you’re reading this before the fact, he’s going to be performing a live, online “Quarantinarama” show for us here at Woody Radio on Monday, April 13th. It’ll be on the Woody Radio page on Facebook.

The rest of the show featured an amazing array of music. It was a Saturday, so we had extra time to really stretch out. Hope you enjoy it!
