CKCU celebrates 20 years of the DAVID DALLE show

David Dalle celebrated 20 YEARS on CKCU with a program featuring all 1994 releases. Congrats Dave and here's to 20 more!

Here is the audio

Every week Dave presents a radio program of the highest quality. The best of music from around the world. European Classical. Balkan, African, South Asian, etc, etc. He presents a well researched program that ties in with local concerts and world events like World Cup.

His show has changed my life, I have seen at least 30 concerts I heard about on his show. They are among the best concerts I have been to, I have in recent years brought at least one of my kids with me to the concerts and the Dave Dalle show is affecting their lives as well. What a thrill to sit in a small concert hall with the best musicians in the world playing solo Tabla or Oud. My troubles are briefly lifted off my shoulders and my heart soars. I look over beside me and my daughters eyes are shining, they are also captured in the moment. The joy of music is universal.

Dave has conducted some of the most informative and thoughtful interviews I have ever heard. He has explored the creative process with many of the great musicians of our time.

In my music room I have an entire Dave Dalle section. Literally hundreds of discs I have heard on the Dave Dalle show. Music that has transported me from my box in the burbs to the market places, trade routes, festivals and houses of worship around the world.

Over the last 20 years, I have had the chance to get to know Dave. He is a kind, thoughtful, intelligent person. Along with doing his program he also did a lengthy stint as a valuable member of our Board of Directors.

Thank you so much Dave !!!!
