Start The Beat 069: DAN PALERMO

For the 69th episode I sit down with Dan Palermo for one of the most off the wall talks I have had to date and I don't even know how to put it all into words. To be honest, It may be best if you're as blind going into this as I was when I sat down with Dan to record this episode. All I knew about him before we met this on this day was that he was the brother of my friend Joe and also that he used to work in the adult film industry. Turns out this guy has lived quite the life and it's a really entertaining conversation. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!

For the 68th episode I sat down with Josh Bakaitus and chances are if you are involved in the Pittsburgh music scene you already know who Josh is but for those of you who don’t Josh is a local concert promoter who has been putting events together for over 15 years including the Strip District Music Fest which is coming up on Saturday January 16th. If you don’t know what theStrip District Music Fest is don’t worry because me and Josh are going to talk a lot about it a lot today… as well as diving into some history lessons about his origins as a show promoter and a lot, lot more. Much like myself, Josh is really passionate person when it comes to his job and the local music scene and this is a great conversation. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
