An Interview with Danny Coleman on radio, writing, music and more!

by Gary Wien - published 2024-02-28

In the last twenty years, I don't think I've met anyone as dedicated to the local music scene as Danny Coleman. He’s a writer, a DJ, an emcee for events, and a musician himself. Most of all, he is consistent. He’s doing these things week after week after week. I have seen a lot of people come and go in the local music scene over the years, but Danny just keeps plugging away and his radio show will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a big bash on April 28th.
