My friend Dana Cannone has the coolest spot in town to cut an album. He bought a church and rebuilt it to make it his one stop shop destination for artists and producers! I thought it was about time for Dana to be highlighted since he is always behind the scenes helping to put out some of the best music in the business. Be sure to check out his website at The Church Recording Studio.
We talk about what it takes to produce an album, cut an album, and the whole process behind it. He also helps kids with WYEP find their dream, and give them a chance to live it out with Reimagine Media. A program focused on creativity and empowering teenagers to mould their own artistic expressions. It was the first I had heard of it, and it sounds amazing!

Possibly one of the most interesting journalist's I have met, Kim lyons sits with me to chat about all things you would never think we would chat about. Writing and journalism are for sure some of those things, and I also wanted to know what a typical day for her would entail. In my mind, I watch a movie about journalists, and it is either glitz, glam, or extremely seedy. I wanted to see what her experience was, what she thought of her work, and what is up next for her. We chat about her interview with Barak Obama, (Yes, you read that right), working in Boston, vacationing in Cuba (our end goal), Pittsburgh six degrees of separation, non sports related subjects, stake outs, real estate in Pgh, and wishful super powers that we wished we had which always makes me happy.
