    Episode 35 with Dave Malone

    My guest today is Mr. Dave Malone. Dave is best known as being a 30+ year veteran as one of the vocalists, guitarists and songwriters with The Radiators, one of the quintessential New Orleans party bands. For over 30 years the “Rads” have defined the sound of good times in New Orleans and many a Tulane University grad has fine memories of attending a few Radiators gigs during his/her time spent in the Crescent City. Dave is a great singer, songwriter and, as you’ll hear, an avid guitar collector with an amazing guitar collection. In this fun chat Dave talks about the New Orleans music scene in the early days of the Radiators, how the drummer brought in a chainsaw to the gig and proceeded to chop up tables, his brother Tommy Malone from the Subdudes (also a guest on the Riff Raff- see episode 19), how his hometown of Edgard, LA still affects his music and songwriting to this day and many other things- including a lot of laughs in between!   Recorded at Dirty Power, New Orleans Oct. 2019   *In 2001 the Radiators equipment truck was stolen, it was a huge hit and the insurance screwed Dave over. The equipment was never found. I’ve reposted some of Dave’s guitars that were never recovered so if anyone out there ever sees one of these instruments you know who it belongs to.* Melancon Telecaster- Dark green serial#9607 Fender ’57 Reissue Stratocaster blonde serial #VO11050 Fender ’62 Reissue with Tele Neck (Sea foam green) Serial #VO27861 DanElectro 12 String Blue Sparkle - Serial # 019912279 DanElectro Baritone (Robin Egg Blue) Serial #029902687 Gibson Chet Atkins (Black solid body acoustic) Serial #940197784 Fender Electric Mandolin (FM-61) Serial # KD00008172 Budda Verbmaster 30 Amplifier Serial #V3F-003 Budda Twinmaster 12 Serial #19-0174
